    Because there are several different conventions in naming notes.
    Luckily everyone seems to agree on where "middle C" is. :)

    but I clicked on the websitepage and saw that the page-info went everywhere
    but neat. Maybe it is IE, but...

    because keyboards/pianos are different large (number of keys) and most
    developers numbers its own deepest C key C0 or C1. Depending on the
    number of deep octaves available the middle C can have any octave
    index.

    In standard Midi the middle C is always note 60, it does not support
    deeper note than 0 even if a synth could play deeper notes.

    you need to set the midi out ports to your synth. what are you using for an
    interface?
