Horrible application. The notes are randomly strewn about on the keyboard such that it's nearly impossible to work out a single musical melody or anything of the like. This is more of a child's toy turns screensaver that holds little to no practical use.

It's a shame, too, I was excited to try it out.

Deleted.

After installation I could not find anything, not a single explanation how to use it.
No manual, no help, nothing. I tried some chords, it sounds okay. Then I noticed
it eats a LOOOOOT of CPU, my Mac started to suffocate, and I trashed the app. Pity, it looks
like it should be fun.

Thanks for the review! I'll keep working on optimizing the code to reduce the hit on the system. On my iMac, it records a utilization rate of 10% system resources.

I've updated the app with a few more Quick Help screens and a note tip on-screen to inform people of the hotkeys to them. I hope that helps in the meantime before I can put out a more detailed tutorial.
