KeyKit aka Keynote - Vintage Graphical User Interface for MIDI From AT&T
Here's an interesting bit from the past. I believe this is the first time this software has been featured here on MATRIXSYNTH. This one is in via Joel Braverman who has actually worked with it: "here is something I think is worth linking to - took me quite a while to find it because I forgot the name, its been more than a few years since I last experimented with it probably in the late 1990s or early 2000s - this a MIDI programming system **created by AT&T**, perhaps in the vein of Max MSP/PureData/OpenSoundWorld toolkits."
If you are familiar with this software, please leave a comment.
"KeyKit used to be called Keynote. It is a programming language and graphical user interface for MIDI, useful for both algorithmic and realtime musical experimentation. A screenshot showing a collection of its graphical tools is shown here. Here is more information about the features of KeyKit, and here is a FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions. For examples of music created with KeyKit, visit the home page of Tim Thompson, or Stephane Rollandin's GeoMaestro. KeyKit is being made freely available by AT&T for non-commercial use."
