Official Release: PIANO, for Rainmeter

Comment: This release is a new milestone for Rainmeter. It pushes the program into a direction it's always been capable of, but has never fully reached. I proudly present you with PIANO, for Rainmeter.

Note: Due to some incompatibility issues some people seemed to have been experiencing with the installation of the .rmskin file, an alternate download version containing the extracted .rmskin contents in a nicely packed .zip file is now available via this [link].

UPDATE: Official Version 1.0.3: Due to a coding error which was brought to my attention, the 11th and 13th keys, G1 and A1 respectively, were both playing the same .wav file. I would like to take the chance to formally thank StarburstSpectrum for bringing the issue to my attention. The .rmskin has been been re-coded to amend this error and the new version is ready for download.

UPDATE: Official Version 1.0.2: .wav files were re-sampled into a smaller bit rate, allowing the size of the original file to be dramatically decreased. Furthermore, the sound quality has been unaffected. The same crisp and pristine sound is still present. Please enjoy the newer, smaller, and sleeker current release of 10 MB.

Information:
Files: 1 (.rmskin)
Size: 10 MB

Directions:
1. Install Rainmeter, or if Rainmeter is already installed, proceed to step 2. If Rainmeter is not installed, procure here [link].

Features:
1. Elegantly crafted GUI which supports the entire 88 key spectrum as one would expect of a real piano.
2. Sound files are authored for crisp and pristine sound.
3. Sound files are 3 seconds long in duration each, to preserve the sustained tone of a real piano key being struck.

I think the shades are ab bit offs? If a key is pressed, and its left key is pressed at the same time, the key shouldn't be shaded? Just quick observation tho

This is very interesting as I've wanted to begin exploring the 'other side' of rainmeter.. it has a lot of potential!

I can just imagine the amount of hard work that would have gone into making this. Wonderful, and truly a milestone.

this would be nice integrated into xwidget, it would allow us to resize the pianos with its zoom option.
