Xmmk: cross-platform virtual MIDI keyboard
Xmmk is a tiny virtual MIDI keyboard application based on managed-midi API.
It used to be almost all about managed-midi API dogfooding, but now it is designed to easily try out any note on your MIDI devices, either normal instruments or drums. It has become featureful.
Keyboard layouts: It supports two keyset layout modes
- Piano - that you know. When there is no half note e.g.
b-sharpthen there is no corresponding key.
- ChromaTone - every key has an assigned note. That means, the key right next to
fis placed on right-upper next to
PC keyboards: ... and, the layout basis is weird - I only have JP106 keyboard so only alphabets are likely to work as expected. But you can choose ones at least. (Ideally they should be automatically acquired but Xwt does not offer such feature.)
Recorded as MML: When you type "notes" then they will be recorded at the text entry box, as simple MML. When it was typed while there are other notes, then there will be
& meaning that they consist of chord notes.
Control octaves and keys: SHIFT+UP increases octave, SHIFT+DOWN decreases it. SHIFT+LEFT decreases transpose, SHIFT+RIGHT increases it.
Drum part: You can also choose "channel 10" which usually means a drum channel. For channel 10, it will show drum set names instead of instruments.
MIDI instrument database: the instruments list is automatically guessed from your device port name. You can also override the instruments set from our presets (instruments and drums have different mappings).
Control MIDI output through MML: you can directly control MIDI device by sending operations in mugene MML syntax so that you can adjust volumes, effect parameters, pitch bends etc.
