Good Midi program for people wishing to learn the piano
I finally realized a dream I've had for several decades now, and
bought a piano. In particular, I bought a digital piano. So far I'm
enjoying it tremendously.
I thought I can accelerate and enhance my learning experience,
however, by hooking it up to a computer and have the computer check
that I'm playing what I'm supposed to play (or, at the very least,
show me what I played so I can compare). The list of MIDI packages
under Debian is rather long, and I find I need some assistance.
So far, I tried lmms (which doesn't see my piano), vmpk, which works
great, but is a mere input/output, and not much else, and muse,
which I have not managed to operate yet, but it seems not be what
I'm looking for.
It seems that the MIDI sequencers are just that - sequencers. It has
not occurred to them to work with, you know, notes. I'm going to try
nted next, but the description is not promising (I think it can
import from midi files, but not from a midi device. I can, of
course, have my piano store a midi file to a USB DoK, and then
import it, but that's too long a process for what I want).
