FAQ

What is a MIDI file and why should I upload one?
A MIDI file can contain any number of tracks. Each track represents the notes of virtual or real instruments, like pianos, guitars, drums, or synthesizers. There may be different instrument tracks for various parts of the music. Play Piano allows you to de-select tracks that represents sounds or instruments in a song you do not wish to play.

Where can I find MIDI files?
MIDI files are widely available only, often for FREE, and have been the standard for representing the note information of songs for more than 40 years. Play Piano allows you to upload and play any MIDI file — a powerful learning tool!

What is a MIDI keyboard?
A MIDI keyboard, also known as a MIDI controller keyboard, is a musical instrument that is used to create and control music digitally. MIDI allows electronic musical instruments, computers, and other devices to communicate with each other.

A MIDI keyboard typically resembles a traditional piano keyboard, with a set of keys that can be pressed to trigger musical notes. However, unlike a traditional piano, a MIDI keyboard does not produce sound on its own. Instead, it sends a series of digital messages to a computer or other MIDI-compatible device, which then generates the sound. These messages include information about which note was played, how hard it was struck (velocity).

Play Piano allows users to connect and use any MIDI keyboard with our platform.

Which MIDI keyboard should I use?
MIDI keyboards are widely available, even at inexpensive price points. Differentiating factors typically include the number of keys, and how "real" the keys feel when played. While they can come with as few as 25 keys, we typically recommend purchasing a keyboard with at least 49 keys (4 octaves) or more. Our platform has been designed to work with all MIDI keyboards.
