Kiss Tunes makes your PC a finely tuned musical instrument
KissTunes. It's website and a musical instrument.
… well, sort of. But for budding musicians who are geeks with a rock god fantasy, it’s a fairly cool concept. The Kiss Tunes website turns your laptop into an electronic keyboard, assigning white and black keys to the first two rows of the QWERTY Keyboard. With it, you can record songs, edit and share with others using the KissTunes website (registration is required).
With the simple click of your mouse on the keyboard, you can activate the interface. Then, as you play the QWERTY, the keys light in the KissTunes interface. This means that one can use KissTunes also as a learning tool. And with the recording option, students can hear their lessons on playback. Players also have the option to change instruments from Acoustic Grand Piano, Electric Piano, Steel Guitar and Kalimba instruments.

Now, of course the utility doesn’t cover the entire range of a piano or keyboard, and doesn’t allow for writing down the songs you play, so more advanced musicians should try JamStudio, which mimmicks everything from guitar to piano to drums and everything in between.
