Note: For Windows computers it is recommended that an external "MIDI" sound device be connected if there is interest in doing real-time rhythm tapping activities; for activities that don't involve playing notes in time, built-in sounds are sufficient. On Macs, the built-in sounds are all that is needed even for rhythm tapping, although an external device can be connected if so desired.
