Editors' review

MidiPiano is free software for playing and producing MIDI music files, with the addition of a virtual piano that can be played with your keyboard or cursor.

The interface for MidiPiano is okay, but not fantastic. The buttons are simple and easy to understand, but almost too simple and could be improved upon for functionality. You can play previously saved MIDI files or make your own. Creating MIDI music with this software consists of recording while you play the virtual piano and then editing to cut or insert notes. You can also adjust the octave, speed, and volume.

The virtual piano takes some getting used to. Our testing went slowly since using a computer keyboard as a piano was new to us and we had to remember which key went to what. Just clicking on the virtual piano keys is bothersome, because it's slow and we found ourselves accidentally clicking on the wrong keys. Thankfully, the editing features allow you to delete those mistakes and move the notes closer together for a more cohesive sound.

There weren't any big installation problems, but you have to read through the installation process to make sure you don't download a toolbar along with it. Also, MidiPiano does not uninstall cleanly. The program worked well, though, and didn't cause any problems. We recommend this if you know way around a computer, but you don't have to be an advanced user.

    "Not working / badly designed"

    December 28, 2013   |   By DOOMDUDEMX

    Version: MidiPiano - MIDI File Player/Recorder 2.1.7

    Pros

    Small program for a very specific but also very common task

    Cons

    Doesn't work
    Badly designed

    Summary

    I couldn't get midi input to work at all and the options-menu had no apply or ok button which means that the user doesn't get a feeling telling them that their changes actually has been saved and for all i know they didn't.
    Another design-flaw was that whenever the virual keyboard was moved the piano-roll was instantly snapped to the top of it regardlessly of where it was before but it doesn't work the other way around.
