Import midi files and see the tracks and notation. Export files to midi or pdf files. Very easy to use. It really helps if you have knowledge in music theory. Can change the show fretboard to show the piano or just turn it off. There is a built in metronome, guitar tuner, scale and chord list. A wide range of musical instrument (midi instrument) are available including percussions. Various effects such as vibrato, tremolo and others are included.
