midipiano_chung free standalone virtual midi piano synthesizer/expander

midipiano_chung is a free standalone virtual midi acoustic piano synth/expander (the best for me) with samples based sounds and originals dsps effects (keyrev,keytone(keys dependent), rev,equ,velo, autovol, compressor,delay, external audio plugin).It is connected to the selected midi input ports (up to 3 if any) and midiout(thru) of your computer or a inscreen keyboard or the computer's keyboard. Easily customizable by adding or modifying sound files (mp3,wav) in the ./sounds/ folder. Load,save effects settings ,or presets(all settings).It is written in compiled freebasic and uses fbsound(freebasic) with 128 notes polyphony / 15 channels.Works well as midi output for midi_chung midi player or with a midi usb piano keyboard. Can run on a small netbook . Includes a midi recorder / player with autostart,autostop after 14sec blanks, save, load as .midirec files (compatible with midirec_chung for editing and exporting to midifiles). Autochord , themeonly, learn (play to chord) functions added to recorder/player . can record and import export to midifiles.can quantize (trial) to midifile.

sample songs with midi_chung and Audacity
=> piano7.mp3
=> piano9.mp3
=> piano8.mp3
=> piano9_2.mp3
=> piano9_b2.mp3
=> piano7_3.mp3
=> piano7_best2

about latency : estimate latency as 4 buffer length time (modified fbsound), so on my small netbook with window7 when i get 130 samples buffer length, it is the same latency as one 130*4=520 samples directsound buffer i can get with Cantabile Lite VST Host, which is acceptable. Included effects : all effects are done at once in the same audio loop, so there is no latency added due to them even with those in plugin/plugin2 folders, which may not be the case if you use one external vst per effect.

midifiles i recommand to you =>  carpenters midifile  
there you can find Bill Evans midifiles  =>  
if you dont have midi input port on your system , you can install Virtual Midi Cable Maple (you can find it on the web, it is freeware) then in midi_chung select midi : Maple midi out port 1 as midi out port. On windows 8.1 64bits use loopMidi . Can run without midi port with the integrated midi recorder/player.
