Is it necessary to have a MIDI keyboard to use CyberConservatory publications?

No. You do not have to have a MIDI keyboard to use our SuperScore publications. You can use SuperScore with a traditional acoustic piano.

NOTE: You may wish to connect your iPad to speakers in order to increase the playback volume.

With or without a MIDI keyboard, you can view and interact with our publications on the iPad in many ways. The SuperScore app enables you to:

  • change the viewing size of the music
  • hide the notation for duet parts
  • turn pages by swipe, foot pedal, or automatically during playback
  • listen to playback of the piece (including accompaniment parts, if any)
  • change tempo
  • add a metronome to playback
  • mute individual parts or all backing tracks
  • loop sections for repeated practice

What are the advantages of using a MIDI piano or keyboard with CyberConservatory publications?

You can take your use of our publications to an even higher level when you play a MIDI-capable piano or keyboard that is connected to the iPad. When you connect a MIDI keyboard, SuperScore will provide these additional features:

  • Learn mode: SuperScore will wait for you to play each note correctly.
  • Jam mode: SuperScore will wait for you to play the first note (then you must keep up).
  • Perform mode: SuperScore will follow your tempo.
  • All interactive modes: SuperScore will respond to your dynamics, adjusting the playback tracks accordingly.
  • SuperScore will make a temporary recording of your performance that you can play back.

Yes. Our webinars are free. However you must sign up for them ahead of time as “seating” is limited.
