I am thinking about using one of my Raspberry PIs to turn USB midi keyboard into a standalone piano.

Is there a piece of software I can use? Ideally a single-purpose image akin to the RaspBMC etc.

Ideally, it would also allow selection of instruments via graphical UI connected via the HDMI port.

  • you can try something like vmpk i am not sure if this works on a pi but it is open source. Thanks

There doesn't seem to be a pre-built distribution or image, but there is a blog post here by someone who set up a similar thing, and how they did it: http://jacquespi.blogspot.de/2013/07/synthesizer.html
