First make sure that Windows is receiving MIDI from your keyboard. If you are connecting through USB you might need to install drivers, or do some setup. Google your keyboard's model and check the manual. As for free stand-alone apps for Windows, two options are: SimplePiano Virtual Piano I do strongly recommend you to get familiar with a DAW (you can ...

A time signature seems unnecessary for what you're describing, unless "moving a note" would invoke "moving all similar notes" where similar means the same note at the same spot in a measure: the concept of measure would require a time signature. If you don't need that concept then you don't need the associated time signature. For tempo... same thing: do you ...

You need some loopback, either a virtual sound card, or just an analog cable; some command-line MIDI player (probably MIDImyAPP, or some AppleScript); and some command-line audio recorder.

They sound 'bad' because they are not naturally created sounds. They are not the sounds of acoustic instruments, which have a much wider array of characteristics as compared to just some particular frequencies sounding for a particular time.

It has been done, in several different pickup designs. These are called hexaphonic pickups, meaning "six separate sounds" or six audio signals, one for each string by itself. There were a couple of commercial products offered in the last ten years or so by Gibson Guitars and Keith McMillen Instruments that did exactly what you are looking for, but they are ...

If I understand correctly, you have a midi file with N different tracks, and you want to create N sound files out of that where for each sound file, one of the tracks is proportionately louder than all the other tracks. If that's the case, you can do this with python and the fantastic music21 library: from music21 import * ##Load in a MIDI file st = ...

too funny, I use the old DOS Cakewalk also, its just the best program for midi, however I too have a hard time finding old laptops that work using a midiator as an interface via serial interface. If you use cakewalk pro 9 it will run on xp and use the usb out to a motu midi xpress 128. Nothing changes for you except no midi lag. that will solve your ...

I'm not sure if this helps, but here's what apple says on their page: "Q-Range: Q-Range is ideal for recordings that already have the right groove but are too hurried or laid back in places. It lets you retain the original feel, but positions the rhythmic center precisely in the groove. A value of 0 means that every note or transient marker is quantized. ...

Here is what I would do since I don't have the knowledge to manipulate the MIDI file. I would start by converting the MIDI song to something I can work with. I have the software to output the MIDI song to my sound card on my computer (so I can actually play the MIDI file and hear "music"). I am assuming you have a way to play the MIDI song so that you ...

Surely a "demoscene" solution would be to simply edit the song to, say, 40 or 50 seconds, and make sure it loops nicely. I am very sure, many people here will tell you exactly how to achieve that tricky business...making sure it loops nicely. (Of course, reducing the length of the song will reduce the file size.)

I will give you two answers, pick the one you like best. ANSWER 1 Meh. It is hard to answer. The running time does not tell us much about the nature of the information contained therein - you could have a single note spanning 4 minutes, a single bar repeated 4 minutes or something completely random with lots of entropy. The SMF format is a bit weird and ...

Ok, I have figured it out :) I have normalized the track and realised then that notes are in fact getting shorter, so the problem must have been elsewhere. I totally forgot that I have sustain automation recorded for that region, and wherever sustain "catch" the short notes it have had prolonged them. Removing automation totally resolved the issue.

You have a few immediate options: Make one yourself Buy parts for another keyboard and rewire (Some keyboards have modular wheel sections that can be removed. Trade in/up your controller for one with what you need on it :) Other than that, this will be hard to find because almost every controller and keyboard sold comes with this on board, and those that ...

I haven't used Logic, but most DAWs are similar. I use Live 9. Try highlighting/selecting the channels in the mixer view, and right click - deleting them.
