Pandaqi Midi is a tool I wrote for my tutorials website. It allowed me to show and play small melody samples on my website. To see it in action, visit the Songwriting course.
It uses basic web technologies (Canvas and Web Audio) all the way through. It’s a relatively simple tool, but it didn’t exist yet. And it turned the tutorial from “a wall of text” into something interactive and colorful.
How does it work?
- You simply input a melody. (By typing notes and their length, in a variety of formats. I prefer traditional format, writing it like sheet music.)
- The system visualizes it and allows you to “play” it inside the web page.
As usual, I open sourced the tool and tried to make it easy for others to use it as well.
