Turbo Pascal MUSIC -KEY 33, Version 2.1
This is a simple program that turns the computer keyboard
into a musical keyboard. It has 33 notes spanning nearly
five octaves (sorry no sharps or flats.) The playable keys
are (lower case):
As you play the keyboard just like an musical instrument,
the program will automatically store the music in a new
file called TUNE.PAS on the disk. TUNE.PAS is a Turbo
Pascal source code of the music you have just created,
ready to be compiled as is or to be modified into a
Turbo Pascal procedure for other Turbo Pascal programs.
Since this program was written with my AT-compatible
machine, it is best played with the 101-key keyboard.
The 88-key XT keyboard will also work, but since the keys
are arranged differently, you may find the succession of
notes a little out of sequence.
With each note played, the program will display the name
of the note as well as its frequency. The time interval
between successive notes will also be displayed. This
program was originally written as a tool for my own
programming needs, but I have since found that my
three-year-old daughter seems to enjoy the program as
It is easy to run the program as the menu is self-
explanatory. This program was released into the Public
Domain by the authors and is free to everyone without
charge. No warranty of any kind, expressed or implied,
were given by the authors and the user assumes all risks
and responsibilities when using this program.
