The Virtual Pianola program is a MIDI file player that allows you to modify the performance in ways similar to the use of an old fashioned Pianola Piano. Simple monotonous MIDI files can be converted into live sounding performances. A gamepad with two analog joysticks is required. Any MIDI device can be used for output including hardware and software synths and solenoid pianos that allow MIDI input. Full use instructions are included in the help file which is accessible when the program is loaded.

The Karaoke Text Adder program is also a MIDI file player but with a different purpose. It allows the addition of lyrics to a MIDI file with minimal effort. Instead of having to type lyrics into a sequencer program, the program works from a text file. Lyrics for many songs are available on the internet so the task of typing the lyrics is already done in most cases. The Karaoke Adder program automatically converts the text into syllables and adds them to the MIDI file when the user presses the space key. All you have to do is keep time with the space key. The rest is done by the program. Full use instructions are included in the help file which is accessible when the program is loaded.

A free "Virtual" Wind Chime (WindChime) that can be configured for a mix of random and programmed response. The user has control over many variable that contribute to the pattern of notes. Modes and keys can be chosen as well as many other parameters which will produce and endless variety of effects. Based on MIDI event generation, it can be used with any MIDI hardware or software synthesizer. The better the synth, the better the sound. The default Microsoft Wavetable Synth is the bare minimum and produces a passable sound. A good sound card with a good sound sample set will produce much better results.
