“Piano 83” is a great “Ion” program that turns your calculator into a piano. Its many features and good sound make it appealing for people who just want to play around or for experienced musicians. “Piano 83” offers a full five and a half octaves (though not all at the same time), the ability to hear two notes at once (but not one in either ear), quick one-octave pitch changes of the keyboard, and half-step pitch changes of the keyboard.

The keyboard layout is such that you turn the calculator on its side to simulate a real piano; [2nd] is C, [Alpha] is D, [Math] is E, etc., with the sharps more-or-less in their natural positions. I find this arrangement particularly useful for playing a rhythm with the left hand and at the same time playing a higher melody with the right. Overall, “Piano 83” is a very fun and useful program.

Sound Quality: 8/10. Pretty good sound. A little scratchy, chords sound poor on arpeggio mode.
Features: 9/10. Great pitch stuff to keep the musician interested.
Ease of use: 9/10. Intuitive keyboard layout.
Overall: 9/10. A great program.
