Re: midi visualizer vst?



The best tool to use for realtime MIDI visualization depends on whether you're a programmer or not, and if so what language you prefer.  Most programming languages are capable of handling MIDI input and doing graphics.  Here's someone using Processing (which is Java):

On the Mac, this can get you started using Quartz Composer:

Here's something for non-programmers, on Windows:

It might not be realtime, but this software is relevant:

This may be interesting, and has pointers to other software:

Then there's this:

It is surprising how few "polished" versions of this there is out there, given its potential.
