Software Product Description

DSW Piano is a small yet powerful program that lets you play music on your computer. The only thing you need is Windows, and a keyboard. DSW Piano transforms your keyboard into a piano, or any of the 128 General MIDI instruments available on any computer with a soundcard! If your computer doesn't have a soundcard, that's not a problem - DSW Piano can play notes on your PC's internal speaker (on a desktop, this is usually on the motherboard or inside the case), however the sound produced by this is a very basic "chirp" sound with no volume control.

Record your music
So you've just played a song with DSW Piano that you're really proud of, but nobody is around to hear it? Not a problem - You can record it! You can then keep the file on your computer to play later, or send it to another DSW Piano user via e-mail, MSN etc.

Play with your friends
NetPiano is a feature of DSW Piano that allows you to connect with your friends, either over the internet or via a LAN, and play together. There are many things you can do once you are set up - Perform together to form a mini orchestra, teach a friend how to play a song, or simply show off!

Use a real keyboard
MIDI Input allows you to use a real keyboard with DSW Piano, which will allow you to record music, or play via NetPiano. You can also use MIDI "loopback" software such as MIDI Yoke or LoopBe as an input device. This will allow you to play MIDI files in a media player, and see the notes displayed in DSW Piano! If your chosen media player allows you to slow down the playback of MIDI files, you can easily learn how to play your favorite songs!

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This program is awesome. It lets you play any MIDI instrument, you can record what you play, and best of all you can play with friends over a LAN! It is also extremely stable and runs well considering it is a Beta program.
