Virtual Piano is a free piano app for Windows 10 devices. When the piano app haws been run on your device, you will instantly be reminded of an actual piano. The piano app is very versatile in the sense that it has multi finger support as well! The piano can be played via the keyboard or via the mouse on non touch enabled devices and hence the app is very polished for offering such support. The overall look and feel of the app is pretty good and the app also offers you the option to tweak the tone and transpose settings on the virtual piano itself.
Virtual Piano is available for free from the Windows App Store.
There is nothing really to be mentioned here apart from the fact that on touch devices, the piano supports multi finger input and on non touch enabled devices the piano supports keyboard and mouse input. The keyboard input can be turned on the app’s settings and when turned on, the appropriate keyboard labels appear on the keys as a guideline to which key will be pressed when you press a button on the keyboard.
Main features of Virtual Piano for Windows 10
When you run the Virtual Piano app itself on the Windows 10 machine, you will be presented with a very piano-esque interface which can be seen below.
In the interface, you can see the digital piano meter at the top center of the screen where you can keep a track of the piano frequency that you are playing at. You can also choose to enable or disable the metronome on your piano. The red arrow buttons correspond to the transpose change. You can go upto +6 and –5 on the transpose scale respectively via these arrows. The app also has a list of very comprehensive settings that can be accessed via the settings (gear) icon at the top right corner of the screen. When you click on the same, you will be presented with following settings pane.The first thing you would want to do on a non touch enabled device is to turn on the Show keyboard help button and when you do so, you will immediately see labels of keyboard buttons on the piano keys which can be pressed by keyboard interactions. The keyboard help when turned on will make your piano somewhat look like the following interface.If you scroll in the settings pane, you will also see more settings that allow you to change the format of musical notes listed on the keys, switch off the digital meter or change the default background of the virtual piano. I have changed the background and the piano in my device now has a wooden background which looks pretty convincing!The piano also has a pretty nifty feature built into it called the metronome which can be toggled on or off. This gives a constant background beat. It can be turned on at the top right corner. This pretty much wraps up all the major features of the Virtual Piano app for Windows 10 devices.
