Musiah Unity Beta V2.4.0 Out Now – Featuring Single Stave View

4 June 2016

SSVThey say good things come to those who wait, and the latest Musiah Unity (Beta) update released today, Saturday 4th of June 2016, is certainly a good thing.

Five months in the making, this significant update features (among many other enhancements) a new scrolling Single Stave View mode.

Single Stave View (or SSV) makes the notes much larger than the default Full Page View (FPV) and it is therefore much easier to read on small screens.

A lot of the work that went into this update also doubles as ground work for our impending iPad version, which of course begs the question; when will the iPad version be available?

Well, aside from a number of relatively small planned features / enhancements, the main things we still have to do in order to complete Musiah Unity for Windows / Mac is to add SSV to the Practice Area, and to replace the 3rd party midi code we currently use in the Windows version with our own midi code.

When these features have been implemented, which we estimate will take 2-3 weeks, we will then launch Musiah Unity as a commercial (non-beta) release.

Once that happens, we will then be focusing exclusively on preparing a beta iPad version for release.

How long it will take to issue the first beta iPad release is hard to say, though I can confirm that a lot of the functional work has already been done. Mostly what is left is cosmetic / design work. Updates on the progress of the iPad version will be issued on our website, social media channels and in this newletter.

In the meantime, to try Musiah Unity Beta V2.4.0 for Windows or Mac, simply launch the Musiah app and it will update automatically.

What people say about Musiah


Great program , the learning it s fast , easy and fun i spent like a year and a half learning some piano lessons on DVD and could play some RH songs but did not knew any notes reading now in 2 months i definitely excelled more then i did in a year ...I am 32 years old at the moment and i thought it might be a little too late to learn playing but with Musiah my confidence and dreams are coming true , was a bit skeptical in the beginning but since i tried the trial on the first day i knew I ll be staying with it . Thanks a lot to Brendan Hogan you are awesome .
