How to program the computer keyboard, also mac version

Hey Guys

I was wondering if anyone knows how to map out the computer keyboard or program or map which not plays what note, so the miditzer can play all the keys on the manuals as well as the peddles.

I do see the chart in the forum, when the program was first designed, but how do we do for the latest version of the miditzers program.

right, I do not have a midi keyboard to place on the computer, but would like to play all the keys and peddle board for now on my computer keyboard.

Also my friend is interested in the program as well, but he has a mac, so I would like to know of program or virtual machine that I can put on his mac so he can have the program as well.

It should not be hard to convert or rewrite the programing code for a mac machine.

Thanks

Kirk

The only way to play more of the Miditzer from the computer keyboard is to use some other program that generates MIDI from the computer keyboard and then send the output from that program to the Miditzer with a virtual MIDI cable like LoopBe1 or Midi Yolk. Bome's Mouse Keyboard or MIDI-OX might be able to do the computer keyboard to MIDI task but trying to find a usable way of laying out two manuals and a pedal on a computer keyboard is going to be a challenge.

Ben Model is the resident Miditzer on Mac expert and he has posted about how to do it several times. I believe WINE is his preferred solution.

Howdy. Best bet to run Miditzer on a Mac is via CrosssOver for Mac. There is some latency with Fluidsynth; it is possible that this could be resolved by hosting the soundfont(s) separately instead of from within Miditzer. This is what worked for me with the giga samples (no longer available for download, unfortunately).

I've just booted the CD to a Macbook Pro (Intel) and it works beautifully. (No USB boot though)
