Apple has showed off a number of uses for the newfangled MacBook Pro Touch Bar, including DJ and other music making controls. It also plays Doom, which is quite handy. When you need to do your best Elton John impression, there's an app that can help with that. Appropriately named Touch Bar Piano, the software brings 128 different instruments to that touch panel above the laptop's keyboard.

If you don't happen to own the latest model, the free polyphonic piano app "does nothing useful on other Macs," according to its developer Graham Parks. In addition to piano sounds, there's a smattering of strings, drums, voices and more for you to make noise with using the tiny display. If you're still a bit skeptical about the whole thing, you can see the app in action down below.
