Le Piano Graphique music simulator. A few keystrokes and a bit of Shockwave and -- Voilà! -- you've created a musical/artistic masterpiece.

The Modular Websynth is a blast, too.

The only way this site could possibly be any better would be if they allowed people to record, save, and share their mixes. But even without that capability, it's an amazing thing.

Oh wow. I'm glad I didn't find this while I was at work.

Until some sort of record / share capability is developed, we'll always have screenshots.

I dare you to recreate this musical pattern! No, really. It'll be fun. Seriously.

Of course, with just the screenshots and no music, you're kind of missing the fun part of the site.

I knew that I had spent too much time on the site when I realized that I had memorized the keystrokes and was designing rather than playing.

Matt, just hook up a cassette deck to your soundcard's line out plug. Once you've recorded your composition, record it onto your computer from the cassette deck and turn it into an mp3, burn it onto a cd, whatever. On some sound cards you can connect the line out to the line in and record without going through the cassette deck step, but be careful, because you can get feedback and potentially damage something if you're not set up right...

VERY fun. But all I really want is an application which transforms the keyboard in my office into a musical keyboard, with a few octives and sound options. Anyone know of such thing? PLEASE!

Paris, check out BackToBasics. It might be just what you're looking for.
