2017-04-15: MIDI Selector tool updated

Posted at 2017-04-15 23:50:23 by SHD

And then Windows 10 Creators Update came out. Along with all kinds of improvements came the reset of all customisation to default settings (ugh!). This included resetting the MIDI output to Microsoft's default and underwhelming "Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth". I found my MIDI Selector tool was no longer completely effective on Windows 10 x64 and had a minor bug as well as some slight inefficiencies. Fixed version 1.0.1 has been posted on the tools page.

2011-06-02: Microsoft demo of Windows 8, UI opinions

After being very tight-lipped about their plans for the next version of Windows, Microsoft have now officially given the first demos of the the next generation of Windows, called "Windows 8" for now. It is a mix of the live tiles from Windows Phone 7's "Metro UI" and the traditional Windows 7 UI. Everybody and their uncle will have an opinion on this. Here's mine. What I've seen leaves me with mixed feelings. As a casual tablet user, I'm loving it. As a deskop PC worker and power user, it fills me with dread.
