Synthesia (known as "Piano Hero" formerly) : The Best and Most Professional Desktop Virtual Piano Game in the World!
Synthesia is a game that can help you learn how to play the piano using falling notes. Watch the notes fall and follow along. Or, connect a piano and join in the fun.
Synthesia reads MIDI files and generates the falling note (and sheet music) display from it. If you have a piano connected to your computer (via USB, MIDI cables, or an adapter) then Synthesia reads from it and scores your playing.// Key Features //
