3D graphics progress

          Recently, I have looked into 3D graphics. However, I thought I might give visual 3D graphics (actually seeing images in 3D) a try. For example, if you take this flat image:

and add a 3D perspective to it, it becomes

To see this in 3D, relax your eyes. Look at something in the distance until you have double vision. Try to align the two images.
I have looked into this method, and I might use it for some programs. I don't know the details yet, but it might be used in the future. And yes, I'm still working on the keyboard.

Developing the Keyboard

          The keyboard program has changed since the last update. It has now changed enough to make an okay screenshot. Yes, this is what the keyboard program looks like now. The keyboard program is designed for a standard QWERTY keyboard, although there will probably be a Dvorak version when it is released. It has two rows of keys, "QWERTYUI" and "ZXCVBNM,", which are the basic scale rows. The accidentals are "SDGHJ" and "23567". Each of these rows can be set to any of the included instruments and to the bass(c2-c3), baritone(c3-c4), tenor(c4-c5), and soprano(c5-c6) range. (The ranges are not completely accurate, but they are the closest vocal ranges to the octaves of the instruments.) By the way, I have not yet decided what to name the program yet. I'll think of something.
