The Bokenspeil
Version: 1.1.0
by: BokTheGolem [More]
Intro
A side project of mine the Bokenspeil is designed to be the first, truly "musical" addon.

The addon itself is a musical piano, but its not a "real" piano. I am no musician and have only worked with what i could. This is based off a small mini piano like program my friend showed me online. Once again im not a musician but i hope any of the musically inclined atleast find it nice! Oh but its more than just a piano to fool around with yourself, check out the features.

Info
Slash Commands:
/bokenspeil or bspeil or boks
/bspeil - open piano
/bspeil play - immediately play out your masterpiece
/bspeil config - open up your piano with options shown

Other info:
Minimap button with various ways to open piano.
Playing the piano DISABLES your keyboard for use, this renders you UNABLE to use it for other functions. However
Pressing enter will DISABLE the piano and allow you to walk and use your keyboard again
Entering combat will DISABLE the keyboard so you wont die during use.
All options are defaulted OFF on login to not wake your character up to a beautiful rendition of "Nails on a chalkboard"

Features
  • 25 key piano
  • Broadcast your music!
    • To your friends
    • To your guild
    • To your party
    • To your raid
  • Mostly self made work
    • All of the code, and most of the graphics were produced by me. There not perfect but i wanted to give a slightly more realistic experience.

Still Beta
  • It's still in its beta stages, so if any of you can help it become a "better" or more "realistic" piano feel free to contact me here, or contact me at bokthegolem@gmail.com Enjoy and thanks to all who download.

I'm not a musician myself, nor do I have the recording equipment. Otherwise I'd happily lend a hand to this project.

But.. have you tried looking at http://www.freesound.org/? You might find some usable sound clips there, or you could probably request some.

Thanks For the Reply

Would be good if you could consider adding some localization for different keyboard setups and so on. Playing WoW with a Norwegian QWERTY keyboard, and couldn't use some of the keys.

Any chance to perhaps also create some different instruments based around this idea? Guitars? Drums? Would be pretty awesome.
Thank you for the reply and downloading my addon ( Spread the word )
I was planning on allowing future updates to modify keys, if you really want to it would be very simple for you to open up the Bokenspeil.lua file and change the note keys.
It should say something like if ( key == "Q" ) then
so just change that to whatever key you want.

Currently im in the stage of developing so you can record your songs, play them back later, and let your friends, guildies, etc download them. However i've been swamped with work and school comes first so sorry if i don't get everything out to soon.

I would love to add different instruments, but im no musician and have only worked with what i could.
If you can or know someone who can supply any instrument files you can contact me here,
Or email me at bokthegolem@gmail.com (please no spam)

Ah true, my misspelling of it glochenspeil was my problem :P Once i finish this update up nicely i will probably fix that error. Its an easy enough problem to fix :P
Meanwhile keep in mind the command /boks also works.
Once again thanks for downloading, spread the word and stay tuned for the next update! Will support song recording and possibly downloading of guildmates/friends/group members songs.

Thanks for the praise. Spread the word and stayed tuned for the next update! You'll be able to record your songs and possibly ( if I can work it out ) access "btunes" where you can download other peoples songs! Downloading other peoples song will be a bit difficult but hopefully I'll work it out
