This is the author, answering to the former reviewer, someone called Paweł Audionysos. VMPK is not responsible for the bad latency of the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth, or any other synth that you may connect to the program. Many people asked me politely about the latency problem of this synth, which I've always replied. The web page has a clue for Windows users, recommending CoolSoft Virtual MIDI Synth instead, which can be configured with an output buffer of 0ms, easily solving the problem on Windows.
It would be awesome if you can implement a feature that reads in MIDI/PDF sheet music inputs and have a keyboard-sheet music dual interface. Just an idea, but it would make using the software much easier for me.
Nice work ! Great project.
Kids love it and so do I
