Midi Piano

Discussion in 'Recording' started by Mynameistrouble, Apr 18, 2007.

  1. I have recently purchased an m-audio keystation 88es keyboard, with the intention of taking up piano again. Now all i need is a decent piece of software with which to use it. Can anyone recommend me a program that delivers nice piano tones (and possibly a bit of Van Halen style square wave action), and is capable of handling the full 88 key midi input?

    Cheers
    Rich

    You will always need to come back to the recording forums and ask your questions and let us know how your doing.
    If you e-mail me I will send you some more sites for posting you music but i think I have mentioned enough as they do not pay for the free advertising. LOL :D

    go to the ik-multimedia site. you can download the free sampletank version there, along with some sounds including the hqpiano.
    i think it's the best piano you'll get for free.
     
  4. Well Cheers for that, but it doesn't let you use midi...
     
  5. Cheers I'll have a look at that. How about stuff that isn't free though? I'm prepared to spend a bit to get a reasonably nice sounding setup.

    keys to midi

    Hmmm, I was sure acid E had midi.

    well if you are looking you buy. There are lots out there. each has a slight difference and its each to there own. You might want to try some demos before you buy.
