MidiKeys for Mac1.8

22 January 2010

Shows comp keys to play MIDI notes.

What is MidiKeys for Mac

MidiKeys shows a little keyboard on screen, and you can use the computer keyboard to play MIDI notes. 'z' through ',' is the octave starting a middle C (note 60). The keys on the row above are flats (black keys), and the octave below is on the row starting with 'q' (and the digit row is that octave's flats).

In addition, you can select a MIDI source and see incoming notes played on the keyboard.

What's new in MidiKeys

Version 1.8:
  • The application is now a universal binary.
  • New configurable hot key to toggle global hot keys.
  • Support for automatic software updates using the Sparkle framework.
  • New option to show the key caps on the on-screen keyboard.
  • New preferences to control the visibility of overlay notifications.
  • It is now possible to have no modifier key for global hot keys, so you only have to press the key corresponding to the note.

Pretty cool app. I would, however like to see some additional key layouts added, e.g. Wicki/Hayden (or 'jammer' as some people call it), Jankó (chromatic piano layout), Russian bayan accordion, etc. If not that, at least an option to make them yourself.

Requirements • Mac OS X 10.5 or greater • PowerPC or Intel • Software synthesizer, MIDI sequencer application, or external MIDI device with MIDI interface. Apple's AU Lab is excellent.

Hi, nice to see its working in Tiger. Only thing left now is to get the keyboard scale drawn correctly also. And yes a sustain feature would be nice - spacebutton would be good for this..

HI, Great app, but what about mapping the key "space" as sustain? Like pressing pedal on real midikeyboard. This is the only feature missing!

This is great! Brings back the immediacy of OctaMED - but with Garageband! It's perfect! Almost: One tiny bug: if you hold a key, then open preferences, the key remains highlighted until you quit. Not sure if this corresponds to a MIDI note being held. Hitting c then command-comma then command-q seems to hold the note. I just tried that with a Piano - it'd be annoying if I'd loaded up my Big Fat Hammond sound... I'd also like to have the five keys p-[=] mapped. I find Reversed Full kepmap to be the most intuitive.
