Point the Piano and Violin Learning Pen from Gigiway at notation in a music book and it will either play the piece through its built-in speaker or repeat and re-repeat a chosen passage and tell you what all those complicated-looking symbols mean. Budding musicians can slow down the playback speed until they are ready to play at full pelt, activate the digital metronome and even compare tones to make sure their chosen instrument is in tune.
Gigiway hired professional musicians to record all the music used for its teaching system and captured every performance in its own studio to ensure CD-quality 44.1kHz/16-bit compression-free audio reproduction. The same musicians, along with professional broadcasters, also provide helpful hints, tips and notation explanations – all of which are stored in interchangeable 1GB memory cards (enough room for about ten different pieces of music). The “richest, fattest and fullest musical sound” is played through an in-built speaker or via an audio-out port to (included) external speakers or to earphones.
