Virtual Keyboard with Pan Voice
Just for kicks because it's one that features pan voice: play single notes, change the sound, add different drum beats, play around with chords. The keyboard goes from middle C to upper F. It actually isn't just random, it also shows you how sharps and flats are laid out. Using white keys only, a major scale starting on C has no sharps and no flats (C D E F G A B C). The major scale follows the whole step/half step pattern of:
Root - Whole step - Whole step - Half step - Whole step - Whole step - Whole step - Half step
Starting on D, you will find that in order to key the whole step/half step pattern, you need to add an F# and a C#. The formula for all major scales is: R W W H W W W H !

Colour your Pan
Once upon a time, there was a very smart man named Isaac Newton (17th century). He liked to study mathematics, and did a lot of different experiments with wind, apples, and other things. Also with the sun. He has owned a prism, a piece of glass shaped like a triangle, and noticed how when the sun shone on it, he got different colours out. He made some more experiments with it, and one day he decided to denote seven colours in association with the seven notes of the musical scale. Isaac Newton sent a brief exposition of his theory of colours to the Royal Society in London: "And possibly colour may be distinguished into its principle degrees, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and deep violet, on the same ground that sound within an eight is graduated into tones."
