4Front E-Piano is a small single sound instrument without any settings that reproduces a timbre, which is similar to DX-7 type e-piano. It is available as VSTi for Windows, and as an AudioUnit, VSTi and RTAS for Mac (see enclosed readme file).
This instrument is small on memory and CPU usage and was found useful by many users and software developers as a plug&play e-piano module, which does not require any configuration or adjustment.
Though this goes without saying for professional users, I still had a frequent question on how to use this plugin from people, who are not familiar with this technolog. One should note, that to make use of this software a plugin hosting software is necessary, such as Topten Cantabile software. A MIDI keyboard is also preferred, as it is something almost essential to create a computer music these days.
There is also 4Front R-Piano, which replicates a different type of E-Piano.
mypiano_jukebox is a mypiano_chung bass.dll based MIDI jukebox, MIDI files & folder player with a virtual acoustic piano recorded on Isabelle’s upright piano, with a smartphone . The sounds, reverb, chorus and volume are variable with the number of played notes and the sustain switch, just like a real piano.
Added a public domain Kawai, City piano and Steinway samples.

The idea behind entropy-based tuning is very simple: Since entropy is a measure of disorder, we expect the entropy of a well-tuned piano to be lower than the entropy of an instrument out of tune. A first test with real data led to the surprising result that a simple entropy-based iteration algorithm produces a reasonably-looking tuning curve.
Now we present a software which allows everyone to evaluate this new tuning method. With this software we do not aim to compete with high-end tuning devices and professional aural tuners, rather we would like to demonstrate that a single extremely simple formula can generate an acceptable tuning.
