If you are a parent and want to ease your child into some more advanced music software this could be the ticket. It is possible to do some basic music sketching as well.
The only negative is that even though you can play more than one instrument at the same time it does only trigger one instrument at a time if they play the same note slot.
A child would probably not care too much and if someone want to use it for some sketching it is possible to do so using just one instrument.
For free and no publicity.
