Hi, I made a virtual piano that (I think) is more intuitive to use than a lot of the ones I found online. Does anybody know the best way to give it away? Perhaps there is a place that will host it?

What form is it in. What kinds of files? Maybe you can describe what you've got and how it works

If this is open source and you want a home for it then "source forge" is the biggest place for that kind o stuff http://sourceforge.net/

If this is more like a demo then you might make a web site on some free hosting place. One is http://www.wikidot.com/

I suspect you'll get a few requests here for emailed copies. That works too.

It is a flash swf. The full version, plus any updates and maintenance I ever do are available for free. I would make it open source, but I didn't think flash actionscript 2.0 projects were good open source candidates.
I haven't gotten any requests for it yet, but if I do then I will gladly send it over.
The whole reason I made it is for people (mostly beginners) who want to compose music and don't own a keyboard in real life can use this virtual keyboard. I know they already exist on the internet, but those that I found did not have all the features and ease of use that I wanted, so I made this one.

I would be interested in trying it out.

I tried to make a VP a few years back, for a free lesson site, but it was terrible. I had no knowledge of Flash:-(

My email address is rob 'at' learn2playmusic.com

I have put the virtual piano up on sourceforge:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/flashpiano/
Tell me what you think!
If you know flash and would like to help out, that would be good, too.

Cool, that's a neat app. Now I know it's not going to compete with software pianos like Pianoteq etc. it's cool because it's there with whatever computer or smart phone you have.

Make some money on it. Get a virtual piano web domain and have some google ads at the top. That will take about 10 minutes and cost next to nothing. If you have time,turn it into an Android app, Iphone app, and make it have multitouch capabilities. They already have some iphone touch piano apps.

I don't know if you can get the latency low but making it have midi input with low latency would be killer, and having a free flash ad supported ap with midi input, even if it's not high end Pianoteq / Ivory like sound would be absolutely huge.


Acoustic: Yamaha C6.
Digital: Kawai VPC1 with Pianoteq

Well, It's free for everyone under the General Public License smile
You can host it and make money off it if you want, as long as you include the license!
