AmazingMIDI automatically transcribes music, converting WAV files into MIDI files. It can recognize single-instrument polyphonic music. It's a powerful tool to help you to transcribe music, to practice musical instruments and to make MIDI files, and so on. AmazingMIDI creates an Output File (.mid) from an Input File (.wav) that contains musical data, and a Tone File (.wav) that consists of monotone data. AmazingMIDI analyzes the Input File, assuming that every sound in the file is played with the same tone color as the one in the Tone File. As a result, even if the music contains several different instruments, AmazingMIDI writes down all detected notes as a single-instrument music. The quality of music recognition depends on the tone color of the music. AmazingMIDI is suitable for analyzing the precise-frequency attenuating sounds like piano or guitar. The drum sound becomes only noise. Currently, automatic music transcription has no substantial solution in general, but with some restrictions of the domain, it can be both possible and useful. AmazingMIDI is one of these systems, and is still in its infancy. However, again, it's a powerful chord analyzer.

Arpeg is just as the name implies... A MIDI-based Arpeggiator! It can work with any synth or sampler you have, just load it up, set up the channel, and make the pattern it will mute/unmute to! You can even save out your arpeggiator patterns, and trade them with your friends!

MIDI Mouse Mod
MIDI Mouse Mod is another in my series of alternative input devices for MIDI information... This one allows you to move the mouse on a grid and modify up to 4 continuous MIDI controllers in realtime! If you've ever used a Korg Wavestation, and it's little joystick, this is like that, on steroids (but not anabolic steroids, those are illegal!). You can control the direction of the controller information (0-127 or 127-0), the screen space used (entire grid or just half), and if the controller switches to another halfway through. Very very very cool for synthesizers that allow realtime control of envelope, etc (like the Novation BassStation), or even for your run of the mill board (they pretty much ALL support volume and pan). This also has the Virtual Piano functionality built into it as well.

Virtual Piano
Have you ever wished that there was some way to easily play notes on your Synthesizer, without leaving the computer? I'm sure everyone has spend many sleepless nights because of this problem, so now I introduce to you - Virtual Piano! VPiano allows you to play your synth by making the computer keyboard into a 4-octave piano keyboard. Sure, you're probably not going to be able to play classical music this way, but you can experiment and have fun using a very different interface than normal, which can sometimes help to stimulate the creative process. You must have a MIDI output device, as well as a sound source to use this program (anything from a Soundblaster to a Midi TimePiece will do); then just run the program, configure the MIDI devices, and start jamming!
