Spring Breeze -afternoon- (Clannad OST) and BaWaMI [rev 106]

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Here’s the latest version of Bawami, my MIDI player, playing Kamoto’s MIDI of the theme 「東風 -afternoon-」, from the visual novel Clannad.

This video is both to show off some new things in my software, while letting you hear  how it performs with this particular MIDI file. This is the biggest update since I first released Bawami to the public, and I changed even some smaller things such as the character of the reverb (there’s now damping, so that hihats and treble such as the shakers in this MIDI don’t sound painfully loud anymore).

You can download this version from the usual download place (6.79 MB).

Full list of changes is below (very long)~


~Shining In The Sky~ (Clannad OST) on Bawami [rev 93] [HD]

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

I’ve added support for reverbs to Bawami, my MIDI player. Also, there’s a new internal view here – scrolling text which shows every MIDI message played, and how it is interpreted. There are dozens of other changes, too, but the only other one audible in this video is support for the “maracas” percussive instrument (actually a tambourine in the original music).

This is my MIDI software synth “BaWaMI” (Basic Waveform MIDI), so-named because it makes all its sound from one of 6 basic waveforms (sine, square, triangle up/down, saw or noise) with a low/high-pass filter applied (and now, reverb too). I’ve not yet released it yet, as there are still issues that need to be fixed before it goes public, but I’ll keep uploading these “preview” videos as I make improvements. =)

Here, it’s playing a MIDI (which I didn’t make) of the music 「空に光る」 (“Shining in the Sky”), from the anime Clannad (I believe it’s from the anime rather than the visual novel).

Channel 9 is supposed to play as percussion here, but my program currently only supports percussion on channel 10, so I told Bawami to at least play it as something percussive-sounding (a taiko drum).
