Touch Pianist - Tap in Rhythm and Perform Your Favourite Music

By EarSlap

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

Tap on the screen and magically perform beautiful music!

Touch Pianist is a musical toy / instrument that allows the user to perform hard-to-play classical piano music favorites (from composers like Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Satie, Debussy to name a few) just by tapping the rhythm of the piece's particular sound events on a computer keyboard or a touch screen.

It also provides live visualisation of the pieces that are being performed. There is no score keeping, the user is free to perform the music in any way they wish. The premise is that it is really fun to perform a piece you know well, exactly like you feel it with so little effort.

Touch Pianist has CoreMIDI support so you can use your favorite piano / sound plug-in in your computer as a sound source if you wish.

Some of the highlights from the included pieces:

Debussy - Clair de Lune
Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata (All movements)
Erik Satie - Gymnopédies (1, 2 and 3)
Chopin - Most popular pieces, and all 24 preludes
Bach - Well Tempered Klavier Book 1 (All preludes and fugues)
Beethoven - Pathetique Sonata (All movements)

Rachmaninoff, Liszt, Brahms, Schumann and many, many more! Playing them is extremely fun, and no prior musical skill is needed. Give it a try and you'll see.

What's New in Version 1.3

New music packs:

Bach - Goldberg Variations
Schumann - Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood)

Overall performance and stability improvements.

Customer Reviews

The ads are awful!

I don't mind ads on a free app, but these ads are awful. Every time you go back to the main menu you get an ad and every ad has video. And since you have the sound turned up to hear the app the video is really loud. My choices are buy a song or delete the app. It really feels like bait and switch to have to pay to get rid of an unpleasant experience.

Too expensive

I would pay for every song if it costed less than twelve dollars. 5 bucks and I would definitely buy the every pack option, but I'm not spending any money on this app otherwise.
Also, there need to be more options, like a way to stop the volume from changing based on where you tap on the screen, and an option to turn sustain always on or off.
Also, add Chopin's Fantaisie Impromptu and Beethoven's Fur Elise.

The Micro-Transactions are ridiculous

The PC version of this comes with all packs unlocked, no need to pay for anything. Maybe it's because cause nothing new will be coming to that platform, but packs that are available for free on PC cost money on the mobile app. Utterly ridiculous. The app itself on PC is amazing and peaceful but I cannot enjoy on mobile what I do on my PC. For this, barely 1 star.
