    For The Musicians In Here: Virtual Pianos

    I am no musician. However the two links here lead to two 'virtual pianos' which sound quite good on my little laptop here.

    Link: The Virtual Piano for Songwriters, Singers, Producers and aspiring musicians

    And:

    This piano does not seem to be as responsive as the first but that could be the fault of my laptop rather than the website. Also seems electronic like the Stylophone as advertised by Rolf Harris in the 70's [showing my age!]

    Here's another one I have just stumbled across:



    Link: VIRTUAL KEYBOARD - PIANO

    9 selectable 'keyboards' [Piano, Organ, Saxophone, Flute, Pan Pipes, Strings, Guitar, Steel Drums, Double Bass]

    6 selectable drum beats.

    Chord mode available.

  4. Thanks to DaveP from:

    The keyboard mapping (with the sharps being where you'd expect them) is better on that one. Gotta dig out my midi keyboard

    Our music teacher uses that one on his IWB very effectively.

    I've got an aging digital piano[1], for a long while I relegated that to just a keyboard hooked up to the PC to make the actual noises using some free and definitely better Steinway sample sound fonts made by Warren Trachtman who was a bit of a pioneer in that respect. If you've got audio s/w that understands sound fonts then I used to spend a lot of time hammersound.com which has lots of freebies to play with including, well over a decade later, variations of Trachtman's.

    [1] 20 years later just one key is now intermittent which never fails to trip me up, looks too hard to fix, plus tech (specifically keyboard action + velocity sensitivity) has improved. Decisions, decisions - do you get the absolutely fabbiest dumb MIDI keyboard hooked up to a PC, or do you get that expensive mid-range standalone digital piano that you can just power on and play (as well as do the MIDI stuff). Whichever route, there's so more choice now it completely does my head in.
