Home Concert Xtreme Overview
Imagine a program that plays along with you as if it were watching your hands. You speed up, so does it. You're at the end of a page, it turns the page for you. You jump back eight measures, and it knows where you are. Home Concert Xtreme is TimeWarp’s award winning MIDI score following program and is compatable with thousands of MIDI files.
It knows how you play your music and is your perfect accompanist.
Home Concert Xtreme is available for Mac, Windows, and iPad.
Home Concert Xtreme and Score-Following
Lead your own band or orchestra with Home Concert Xtreme as an accompanist, rehearsal tool, or music tutor. Home Concert Xtreme makes MIDI files respond to your keyboard playing. It turns pages automatically. You speed up, it speeds up. You jump to another place in the music, and it jumps there and keeps following.
Home Concert Xtreme is compatible with thousands of commercial and free MIDI files, as well as properly-formatted MIDI files that you make yourself. It also works with the MIDI files available for most popular piano teaching methods, from publishers like Hal Leonard, Alfred and Frederick Harris.
When you load a MIDI File into Home Concert Xtreme, the app shows one or two tracks in notation (such as piano left- and right- hands). If you connect a compatible MIDI keyboard, it will expect you to play the music you see on screen while it plays all the other tracks.
As you play, Home Concert Xtreme determines your location, tempo, and dynamic expression, musically coordinates the accompaniment tracks to match your playing. In other words, you are the soloist and Home Concert Xtreme is the conductor, orchestra, and page-turner.
Home Concert Xtreme has been honored with the Frances Clark Award, given to products that change the face of piano teaching.
