I am happy to bring another update to the virtuoso project. More and more, this is becoming a more user-friendly application. Here is the changelog for this update.
- Added play/stop buttons
- Added time slider
- Sound playback enhanced and made more realistic
- Lots of optimizations and bug fixes
- Actually counted the number of changes and categorized them…
You may have noticed the vague title for this post. This is actually referring to the nice fade that all notes have that give a much more lifelike feel to the song playback that this program provides. This is definitely my favorite part about this update.
The link to this application has not changed, but in case you are new to this project or forgot, here it is: http://notebookinc.byethost15.com/js/virtuoso/virtuoso.html
Also, stay tuned for another post, because I am going to be making a video to show off this new update.
See you all on the flip side!
I’ve got a major update for you guys. Virtuoso has come a long way and can do several things in order to make it easier to view your midis.
Currently, Virtuoso can now play most songs without trouble. It can also visualize the playback of songs with a keyboard as well as a heads up display for several things. These include the time signature, tempo, key signature, as well as upcoming notes.
Even better, now it is possible to use samples other than a square wave, and the application currently uses a sound of my own design which I have appropriately dubbed ‘e-piano.’ However, it is currently not possible to select a sample for playback, but that will be coming in the next update.
Here is a video showing off the latest version at the time of writing.
It looks like I have started another project! I call this one virtuoso, and basically it is going to be a sort of all-in-one midi player in order to help those who want to record songs being displayed on a piano, or learn to play songs.
I have made quite a lot of progress behind the scenes with this one. The second update for this was literally jumping from just loading a midi file all the way to playing and visualizing said playback. There are still a few kinks that I want to work out before I add more features, but it will not take too long since it is simple stuff.
I have even recorded a video of this being used, so for all of you mobile users who are itching to try, here’s a nice little preview before I optimize this for mobile devices.
