PianoRollComposer 2.45 is a MIDI Sequencer for
composing and playing music.
uses the standard treble and bass clef staffs. Notes are
displayed in the piano roll format, so it shows music
with absolute accuracy. Notes are entered directly on
the staffs, and you can edit each note to give it the
exact characteristics you want. You can input and edit
any of 128 MIDI instruments and 61 percussion
instruments. If you have a MIDI keyboard, you can play
and record any instrument with it. A composition can
contain music from 15 instruments and all the percussion
instruments. The music created with it can be played by
any MIDI player, and can be shown in standard music
notation by programs like Notation Player.
PianoRollComposer can play and display any MIDI music.
Music from different instruments (different MIDI
channels) is placed on the same staffs, with different
colors to differentiate them.
VST plugins can be
used, as well as any SoundFonts.
Darker or lighter
colors differentiate sharps or flats. Instruments can be
selected to be played and shown, or not played and
shown. You can move a note left or right. Right-click on
it to change its note type, volume, instrument master
volume, beats/minute, and beginning and end positions. A
note's parameters can be shown on-screen when the mouse
passes over it. Music can be transposed up or down.
Groups of notes can be copied or cut and pasted.
Pressing the Delete key deletes a note that the mouse
cursor is over. You can insert or delete vertical spaces
on the staffs. Key and time signatures can be entered
and displayed. You can change instruments for music
already created ( including percussion instruments). A
beat is provided (by a selected percussion instrument)
when entering music with a keyboard -- either without
music showing on the staffs or when adding to music on
the staffs after that existing music has finished
playing. A virtual piano keyboard is included.
javaDAW is a Java
Sequencer for playing and manipulating MIDI files,
however the source code is not available yet but will be
in the future when everything is stable. JavaDAW can be
used without a license, it is just a "fun" project to
test the boundaries of java and music. javaDAW is
completely build in Java and uses the VST plugin and
ASIO solutions of Martin Roth. This means most common
VST plugins and ASIO drivers can be used. In javaDAW you
may create MIDI clips and add midi notes to each clip
with a (double) click of your mouse. Insert a Midi
track, assign a VST Plugin to a track (F3) and hit the
play button (space bar) after insert a midi file of
