  • please make this app run in asio drivers pleaaaaaaaase

  • First I'd like to thank you for writing this software, and making it available for free, as well as open source. Though it is quite good overall, there are a few minor flaws. It doesn't always show the correct length of notes. It doesn't seem to have support for ties, which may be the reason for the incorrect length (type) of notes being shown. For those of us (like myself) whose eyser aren't what they used to be, the light grey color of the notes for the treble clef, when they are shown on the piano, is a bit hard to see. I actually worked out a solution for this, and would like to post it, in case anyone else, using this program, is finding the light grey color hard on the eyes. Obviously the first step is downloading the source code, since this involves building the software from scratch. Open the file Piano.cs in an editor (I used Notepad ++) and find the method SetShadeColors. Add the following, as the first line in the method (or at least before the variable c1 is used:) c1 = Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.Lime); Of course you can change it to any color you like, or use a hexadecimal value, if you prefer. Actually, I don't understand how this method works, as far as I can see, it's never called on elsewhere in the Piano.cs file. Nevertheless, this change did it for me. Open the project in Visual Studio, and build an EXE-file. I used VS, after having tried to build the software from the command line, as prescribed in the README file, and failing. Actually it took me a while to get the package to build without errors, first I got 100 errors. On closer examination, they were all the same error, telling me that the name "Strings" did not exist in the current context. Luckily Visual Studio suggested this solution, which worked, after having applied it to all the methods with this error: Adding using MidiSheetMusic.Resources.Localization; in the "using" section at the beginning of each method containing the error. Well, this review is now long enough, I give the software four stars. Was considering deducting two stars because of these flaws, but one star deduction is probably fair enough. PS I might like to change the grey color of the sheet music bar, so I would like to ask the author of the program, where I change that one as well.

  • I downloaded this project 11/30/2014. I am delighted with this, running on Ubuntu14.04 and KXStudio. The hand separation for the keyboard is intriguing. Discussing this with my older son (retired AF officer, skilled pianist also) he thinks the software models the player's hands. Kudos. I would ask if the future holds two really nice features? (1) midi in/out (2) Save [export as xml ?] midi rendering of the sheet music. Midi in/out allows direct input from midi keyboard and plaback through the midi instrument. Export midi rendering of sheet music allows editing. I used a program from midisoft (Studio4) until they went out of business. Midi Sheet Music is the first program that even comes close to their sheet music rendering.

  • The basic task of playing MIDI files and converting them to sheet music is done well, and there are a few additional features making it helpful for those who are working on their piano skills. It has a lot of settings to adjust the sheet music layout. The sample song collection gives a nice library for exercising. I also like the possibility to color the notes based on their pitch, though I still have to experiment if this really makes sense, like marking notes that do not belong to the key signature - it would be nice if saving to different color sets could be done. Printing is targeting the default printer (no printing dialog at all), but there's a separate menu item for printing to PDF, so this is certainly not a showstopper. The only real problem I encountered was an exception error trying to open "Help Contents..." (Version 2.6 on Win7/64-bit), but even so I consider this an excellent little project.

  • Almost Perfect! This program (on Android) is almost prefect for my usage (rehearsal of choir music) while doing something else. It is sleek and pretty intuitive. You currently have got a patched version that enables volume settings by track. That one is exactly what I needed to traim myself while commuting. The settings are store in the midi file, so you get them back with every file exctly as you left them last time. The Windows version is a bit behind the expectations, I have found no way to get rid of the piano view that I don't need and had 2/3rd of the screen unused while only three measures were displayed. A score with 13 tracks was constantly scrolling so that one could barely read anything out of it. ut that are childhood flaws, that surely will vanish soon. Maybe in a while it will be able to replace my loved Midisoft Studio 16 bit application from 1996 that can only handle 8char names, but is still a reference in ease of use.

  • I like it so much that I created MidiSheetMusicMemo out of it!

  • Nice program, but it does NOT show lyrics. I.e. I download .mid file with lyrics, and open it - this software does play music, but shows no lyrics, although 'Show lyrics' is ticked, I also tried 'unshow-ing' tracks, no avail. Best regards. Simon S love nia

  • This is a great work. I use the program on Android devices for accompanying instrumental play. I have some features in mind which would be nice to have, but the base functionality is quite all I Need.

  • It´s awesome and really easy to use

  • So very good software.So simple. Convert the midi file to sheet music. Rhythm notation is not so arccurate.but it's so usable.i think that doesnt need the rhythm notation sometimes.I want a function of deleting the rythms.(only round notes).

  • It's a good program but when opening big midi files it simply breaks when you play it.

  • thank you for such a simple user friendly software and also for the free version.i am a learner for three years in classical western music and the software will be very useful for my progress.thank you again k r g

  • Better than I could imagine, simply perfect.

  • UPDATE - Perhaps the best way to use this product is: 1. Take your MIDI file and edit if first to remove the tracks you don't need. Anvil Studio works fine for this. 2. Send the MIDI file to your phone and use MIDI Sheet Music there. I place my phone above my keyboard where the sheet music goes. This seems the most natural way to use MIDI Sheet Music. ORIGINAL REVIEW - This a a perfect tool for learning songs with two hands. It is simple. It does the job as posted. There is an issue with Windows XP where running MIDI Sheet Music mutes the WAV channel. Perhaps this is a function of how the software interacts with the MIDI driver. If you are learning to play this is not an issue. If you are jumping back and forth between your browser, Quicktime and MIDI Sheet Music trying to find out what's wrong with it, you aren't really the person who needs this software. One annoyance is how it starts up with all the MIDI tracks muted. All in all an excellent program. The small memory foot print makes it very fast. A good companion to this is Anvil Studio (also free) to edit the MIDI file. Combine or Delete tracks to make it more suitable for learning on a keyboard. Hats off the the programming. Well Done.

  • Hello, thank you for working on MidiSheetMusic. It's outstanding!! We want to get MidiSheetMusic in the f-droid FOSS market, see here: However, there is an issue with your repo. Can you put the source in Version Control? Best, Tobias Kuban P.S.: It is also possible to include a donation button there, see:
