Smart Piano is a (hopefully) fun app for Windows Smartphone 2003. Press a key and it will make a piano sound, it's that easy.

Keys:
Up: C Major Chord
Right: G Major Chord
Left: F Major Chord
Down: Middle C
1: C sharp
2: D
3: D sharp
4: E
5: F
6: F sharp
7: G
8: G sharp
9: A
*: B flat
0: B
#: C
Volume: Phone volume buttons

You'll need 1.7Mb free on your phone or storage card.
Pressing and holding a key will keep the on-screen notation displayed.

There is a one octave range and on screen notation. I believe it will take up a fair bit of memory and there is a small bug: the very first keypress after the app loads doesn't display the notation, but it's all fine after that (I'll get round to sorting that after I've looked into the feasibility of doing some sort of MIDI player). Everything else seems to work on my phone but, as always, use at your own risk.

Has MoDaCo got a jingle? :P

Thats the best thing I ever saw!! :)
Excellent work fella! It even sounds better than the midi piano on my soundcard!! ;)

Now, if you can make a midi player, does that mean it may be possible to edit/programme it? That would be great!

Cheers guy! :P

Dude ! Im so impressed! this is a TOP TOP application.

Graphics are excellent, Sound is good and i like how you can play the cords, just wiv directions, it makes anything u press sound good! :P

I noticed that if u press the action key after playing a note it shows u the last note played. Nice Touch :D

I play keyboard, so its nice to know i can toot out a tune where ever i am.

Thanks m8, this is a 'Best of MoDaCo' app surely!!!

Nice Work :lol:

Hey again, because i love this app so much + being real bored i recorded a tune, 1st one to post what it is wins.

Lol, im so sad.

Heres some clues, its the chorus (so quite short), would be played normally with a electric/air guitar.

Any takers?

128 bytes mp3 file ??? maybe it was a mid file you renamed incorrectly pwest13?

Anyway, Palindrome - you is well fast developer, you only mention doing this last week - and now you done it already!!!

I think I'll download this and give it a whirl - by the way setting any midi file as a ring tone can enable you to play a midi song so it should be quite easy to add a player to your app.

It shouldn't be too hard either to add a drop down list so user can select any one of the 128 GM midi sounds built into the smart phone. Here is an example - assign it as a ring tone and you will here the drums and some of the different instruments provided by the GM chip in the smartphone!

Proably loads of threads about the above :oops:

I bet someone will write a fully blown GM Midi Sequencer for the Smartphone just for the hell of it - Who's got the spec of the GM chip - its probably Yamaha and is probably 16 note polyphonic :D

Was it the other thread that was talking about trackers - i would love to have a mini version of octamed on me smart phone to play around with! that was one cool program for making dnb and jungle - many a chewn did i do back in the day... oops better shut up now - i swear someone has put amphetamine in my coffee.... :P

I've no idea what that tune is but you're certainly getting round that keyboard better than my first shameful attempts at a tune. :P


Different sound sets is a good idea. I wonder if it's possible to make it recognise small sample banks in well know formats? Probably well out of my coding league tho.

I'm definitely going to look into MIDI at some point in the future as well, as converting it for WM2002.

*upgrades to 2k3*

Any chance of making a musical notation app for the smartphone ??? so that you can place notes such as quavers and crotchets on different areas etc and it reads them and plays it back ?? That would be bloody fantastic for making ringtones as i have loads of great tunes for piano (jools holland i might add :wink:) on notation which would be real good ringtones ...

They're wav files. Better quality, but harder to shave the file size.
