[7:00 AM] Learning About Musical Instruments Now As Easy As ABC 1.1

Nigrin Software has updated the popular music education program, Instrumental ABC's, to version 1.1. Instrumental ABC's helps interested users learn about symphonic orchestra musical instruments, and the update offers interface improvements and increased stability. According to Nigrin Software:

We have updated our Macintosh, shareware release, Instrumental ABC's to Version 1.1. This update makes the interface more user friendly, and fixes a bug that would cause the application to crash when used with OS systems earlier than 8.1.

Instrumental ABC's is an educational program targeted for pre-adults, but is for anyone who wants to learn about the standard musical instruments used in the Symphonic Orchestras of today. It includes varying multimedia information on the 21 different instruments showcased in the application. It also has a "Quiz" window that challenges users to recognize the differences between instruments by identifying them solely the on sounds, pictures or text descriptions presented.

Instrumental ABC's is available as shareware for US$27. You can find more information at the company's web site.
