Don Taylor Posted November 18, 2014 Share Posted November 18, 2014 Trying to work out the computer keyboard mapping. When just refreshed, the letter 'G ' appears to be middle C, so 'S' is Gb, 'D' is Ab, 'F' is Bb, 'H' is D, 'J' is E, 'K' is F#, 'l' is G# and ';' is A#, dropping down a row: 'X' is Db, 'C' is Eb, 'V' is F and so on. It is not really necessary to know which notes are which keys, if you know the Hayden layout then you can start anywhere you like on the computer keyboard and play a tune using the Hayden layout. Very interesting to play with the slider to listen to different tunings, but ... I am afraid that I hate the sound of the synth that you are using, I understand why you need to do that in a web page, but it is an ugly sound. I would really like to hear it with good quality sampled sounds instead of poor quality synthesized sounds. (There seems to be a bug in that occasionally keys would drop octaves on successive presses. Cured by refreshing the page to reset the player. This could be my keyboard which is a Bluetooth Android keyboard that I am using on a PC which is probably not a recommended configuration.) The Striso? I like the idea and I like the expressive possibilities that it has, but I don't much like the sounds it produces - at least in the videos. I assume that at some point it will be possible to connect it to an external midi device or a computer and have a bigger choice of instrumentation?
