We are happy to announce that the three computers in the Listening Room now have rotating monitors!

Using MagicRotation, the orientation of the screen can be changed from wide view to tall view.  This allows entire pages of musical scores to be viewed at once–ideal for score study while saving paper!  See the photos below.

  • To convert a monitor to tall view, gently rotate the monitor clockwise 90 degrees.  Then, press Control, Shift, and the “9″ (nine) key in simultaneity (CTRL + SHIFT + 9). 
  • To convert back to wide view, gently rotate the monitor counterclockwise 90 degrees.  Then press Control, Shift, and the “0″ (zero) key in simultaneity (CTRL + SHIFT + 0).
