Quincy is a musical explorer of Life, a cellular automaton created by J.H.Conway. Conway’s Game Of Life has long been of great interest to musicians specifically as a pattern generator. Quincy is a full implementation of Life, capable of generating all possible variations. It is document-based and features adjustable grid size, random cell insertion and much more.
Scales are elementary to all musicianship. They provide flavor and harmonic structure, but are at the same time fairly complex. ScaleMaster presents over 200 scales for banjo, bass, guitar, piano and mandolin and is loaded with features. The virtual instruments are fully playable, can be shifted into any position, support left-handed display and several kinds of note overlays. There is MIDI support, a history popover, global transpositions for horn players, chord matching and so much more.
Mozart makes the task of learning how to read music enjoyable by immersing the student in a well-designed and challenging game. The didactic advantage to this approach is quite considerable for one because the time spent playing a game is not perceived as "study time" by the player. On top of that, however, the game forces players to identify notes very quickly as the animation progresses, a note changes position or the key signature changes in mid-flight. Anyone involved in learning or teaching an instrument or music in general will find Mozart to be of great value and most importantly - great fun.
