Keyboard Piano

313 views

I sat down last night at a friend's house and I had my laptop out trying to write some music. I say trying because without a (midi)keyboard I find that composing becomes much more difficult. So I figured that a good project would be a midi keyboard on the actuall keyboard. And this is what I did. It plays nine octaves (four higher and four lower than middle C) and supports all 128 GM MIDI instruments. It even has the ability to attatch to external MIDI devices.

While it has almost not GUI, it does have functionality.

Let me know of any problems!

I don't hear any sound, but the input is working =/

What is your OS and java version?

XP Pro SP1. Java 1.5??
 fixed by choosing another MIDI out device!
