midi with visual keyboard display

Discussion in 'alt.music.midi' started by Paul Aspinall, Aug 31, 2003.

  1. Hi

    I'm looking for a piece of software that will play a Midi file, and show a
    visual keyboard on screen, on which the notes highlight, as they are played.

    Does anyone know if such a program exists??

    Thanks


    Paul

    www.vanbasco.com

    VanBasco's player is freeware, and has a single unified piano
    keyboard display plus a separate 16 channel display.

    So, Chanteur are you trying to tell us (he asks with tongue very firmly
    planted in his cheek) that programs that can ACCURATELY convert MP3 or
    similar audio based music to midi and then display the notes of the song on
    a virtual keyboard don't exist yet?

    Can you just imagine the furore amongst the music publishers if such a
    program were ever to be successfully written and sold widely?? I mean, they
    go apesh*t enough at people who sequence tracks, so I think they'd go
    utterly ballistic at a program that could faithfully reproduce in midi file
    (which would also make it availiable to print out, thereby eating out large
    chunks of the extremely expensive sheet music market) songs which they make
    huge wads of cash from..... so roll on the day that program is born - at
    least the underdogs may just get an even break for once.

    And before anyone mentions it.. I am aware that songwriters need to earn
    money for their works... but how many of you have ever seen a music score
    for popular music that was totally accurate - or indeed worth the huge
    amounts they cost? maybe if the publishing and record companies didn't rip
    joe public off in the first place (or bitch so much about midi seqencers
    having a go at programming a song into the computer or workstation), the
    demand for net downloads wouldn't be so high.

    :-O sorry bout that.... didn't mean to get on the soapbox.....I'll go take
    a soothing cuppa chocolate now, calm me down a bit....


    Regards

    Power Tracks Pro Audio ( www.pgmusic.com )is my choice, very affordable and
    has a good Chord Wizard. With decent foundation in music and knowledge of
    your midi instrument(s) you should be productive minutes after the sw load.
    As others in the group have stated the "magic wav to midi (mid)" is still
    awaiting the magic. So find the song, learn it, play/record as a mid and
    print.
