Each applet is well worth what they’re asking for, here is a breakdown via the list:
• Tab Toolkit is a great tool, if you are trying to learn a piece of music quickly. Even if you are a veteran sight-reader, this little applet will get you through a piece of music quickly. It also has the ability to allow you to upload your own music (I have yet to try) however, overall the U.I. is quite simple, direct and straightforward.
• Music Box – if you are a fan of Music Boxes, this is a must have. It allows you to create your own music, or you can listen to the music that is preloaded. If you are a DYI builder of these type of grinders, this digital instrument will allow you to test out your creations, before you pay to have them punched!
• Dulcimer – it’s a cute little applet that emulates a hammer dulcimer.The tones are crisp and clear, and is a great practice way.
• AutoHarp, or Zither (as I grew up with the name) this applet really works. Make sure to turn the volume down as it gets quite loud, very quickly, just like the real instrument.
• Harp – as the website recommends that you visit the site to understand how it works, I would do the same. I own a harp at home, and for harp players, its really cute, some may not find the interest of it, but I think, it has a few more options of chords and modes you can use to enjoy playing it.
• Air Harp reminds me of the “pig nose” harps I grew up with. It even provides you with a few simple tunes to play along with as the real one does, however no tuning is needed, this baby is digital, no need for calluses when playing this instrument.
• Chinese Zither is another Chinese based instrument. It does have a cousin in the instrument family, the Japanese Koto is similar by look and design, but both do have a unique voice all to their own. This Zither is very easy to play, and instantly transports you to the ancient times of China.
• PanArt HANG sounds just like the real thing. The instruments used to be sold for $500 each, with a $100 case, they've sold for over $6,000.00 now, and I have been told that the company has a 3+ year waiting list for the instruments and the cost is out of control. Now you can one a virtual version, that's in every key!
