Hi,

 

I notice there's a midi keyboard option in the instrument list.

 

Is this a usable option at the moment for midi enabled browsers?

 

Or is it just there for future release? Or because of classic smart music importing?

Thanks - midi would be of benefit to me in my teaching keyboard etc.

    I would also be interested in MIDI keyboard input as the solo instrument. We would love to use this for our keyboard skills classes at McGill University (approximately 90 students per year). Sad that nobody has replied to this.

    MIDI input would be a wonderful tool for keyboarding classes. Please add this.

    They did add MIDI assessment a year or two after the original post, but as of last year it was really only functional for monophonic instruments like wind controllers. Assessment of keyboard music is too frustrating for students to use. If you play one wrong note in a chord, it marks the entire chord wrong. If you are holding a long note while playing a melody, and you play one wrong note in the middle of the melody, the long note will also be marked wrong. Users who are already good at knowing where they made mistakes can sort of work with it, but the whole idea of SmartMusic is to help users identify their mistakes. It is also a hassle to try and explain the above to students. It's really too bad. 

    By the way, I believe there is now more discussion on the Facebook group "Teaching With MakeMusic Cloud" than there is here.
