About the software

Synthesia is a piano keyboard trainer for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Android that allows users to play a MIDI keyboard or use a computer keyboard in time for a MIDI file by following the instructions on screen, very much in the style of Keyboard Mania or Guitar Hero. Also, Synthesia can be paired with MIDI keyboards that have lighted keys, or with a virtual piano player on the screen, which some people believe makes learning piano easier for beginners. It was originally called Piano Hero, due to the similarity of play with Guitar Hero; This was until Activision (the owners of the Guitar Hero rights) sent a halt and gave up on the show's creator, Nicholas Piegdon.
