PRLog - Jul. 20, 2012 - NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Yamaha unveils updates to its recently launched NoteStar app for iPad, designed to give all piano and keyboard players the experience of playing with a real band. Summer NAMM 2012 attendees are invited to stop by the Yamaha booth to explore the media-rich digital sheet music program that motivates keyboard players by providing a dynamic, fun performance experience.
The app now features a convenient vocal muting option, which enables the performer (or performers) to sing along – Karaoke style. Since its release, NoteStar has been consistently adding 20 new song titles per month.
Called "well-designed and versatile" by The New York Times, NoteStar provides smooth flowing, easy-to-read, auto-page turning sheet music accompanied by real, great sounding backing bands and vocals to give users the experience of playing their favorite songs with a real band.
“Yamaha is committed to enhancing our customers’ musical experiences,”
