PianoBooster is back! V1.0.0 is released plus a new website.

PianoBooster is back!  It has been 11 years since there has been a full release of PianoBooster that includes executables for all three platforms (Windows Mac and Linux/AppImage). For the downloads please see https://www.pianobooster.org/download.html.

You many have also noticed that there is a brand new mobile friendly Piano Booster website see https://www.pianobooster.org/ for the new home for PianoBooster! Please can you check this new website for errors, typos, grammatical errors and broken links, etc. When everything checks out OK I will eventually put an HTML redirect from the existing sourceforge PB website to this new site.

What is new in Version 1.0.0

The new version now includes the built-in FluidSynth sound generator which makes it much easier to use. This solves the latency problem which made PianoBooster difficult to use on Windows when using the MS GM Wavetable Synthesizer.  

Also included are two music courses, Please see https://www.pianobooster.org/music-info.html for the details. The MIDI files for this course should be installed in  in a folder called BoosterMusicBooks located in the Music folder on your PC. Please see the change log for what has changed.

Also there the source code has been move to a new repo https://github.com/pianobooster/PianoBooster so please update your URLs

thanks. The link in the news section reads, "available with exectuables " it should be, "available with executables" . I think the rest of the site from what I have looked so far is OK. By the way, is there any way to view the documentation without having to download and install the program? so glad to know this is still worked on, this is more than a decade old :)

Thanks for that. I have just fixed the website.

Most of the documentation has now been updated and is on the new website included the FAQ and music pages. The documentation in the old docs dir in the source code is now out of date.

Hi Louis, today I installed PianoBooster on Fedora 33 under Wayland and it worked like a charm. Thank you very much for your time and effort on this, is an excellent piece of software :)

I also plugged an AKAI MPKMini and also worked flawlesly, so now I can continue learning with my old friend the keyboard.

Any plan to add new lessons?

Keep up the great work!

Being new to piano this looks like a great tool to learn and thank you, however the latest version isn't installing properly.  And I'm really exciting to get this working but alas something isn't right.

I've now twice downloaded the latest 1.0.0 version, installed it BUT the application installs with no File Menu at the top.  The menu bar is there but there's no - File, Setup, Help - as per the screen shots so the software is unusable unless I'm missing something.
The application seems to uninstall ok.
Running Win7 - 32 bit.

Reading other comments where the latest works, something has become corrupted or ???

Thanks, Orion
