• New Song Robot Update: Bigger, Expandable Keys!

    in Midi,Technology

    I’m so excited to be making another huge update to Song Robot!

    Now the keys are in HD and can be expanded as big as you want! If you have double monitors, they can span the whole length. Even if you connect to a 50″ plasma tv, it will have the same, crisp, sharp hd look!

    Watch this video for the details.

    Update: We made a small update since this video. Now, there is only ONE window even though the keys separate from the main control panel area. Even better!

    Don’t have Song Robot yet? What are you waiting for!!! Click here for a free video presentation.

    Wow this is a great update, thanks very much.

    I just want to download the update and take it home and manually install it. In our last email you said that would be possible. I can’t seem to find the download location. I visited the digital download center but didn’t see the update link anywhere. Keep in mind, not everyone will have an online connection for automatic updating.

    Well done, Jermaine!
    Extremely helpful update.
    I was wondering just how on earth I could sit at my piano and manage to see the robot’s keys in front of me without magnifying glasses! I’m not exactly a hawk, you know ;).
    All the best!

    Thanks, so much for the ability to make the keyboard expand!!!

    I have eye disease and vision is deteriorating. The bigger keyboard makes it so much easier to make out the letters.

    God bless you, Jermaine. You really give your best to your friends and students. You are one special guy!



    5 Everick Holder

    Hi Jermaine; I see that you have implemented my suggestion for a bigger keyboard.
    Thanks man.

    Hello Jermaine

    I just bought the song robot a few days ago. It is fantastic to say the least. Your bigger keyboard update has made it now super fantastic,

    Everybody that is learning to play a piano or keyboard should have the song robot.
    This includes every piano and keyboard teacher.I can’t wait to see what new exciting update comes along for song robot.

    Thank you and your team for a job well done. I am telling all my friends and relatives
    about your song robot.

    I just want to say that the hear and play system, plus Jermaine’s video lessons are one of the greatest systems for learning how to play any type of music available in whatever style you want to play.
    Thank you Jermaine for all you offer and I know that anyone can learn how to play an instrument with this system.
    I am telling all of my church people about your course and the Song Robot as well as how much more easier it is for a beginner to learn how to play the music they want to play.

    WOW! I feel like it’s Christmas with every update. I thank GOD for you.
    May GOD continue to bless and prosperous you.

    Jermaine, this latest update is wonderful! It is just what I needed, even though I didn’t realize that I did!! I think you’ll know what I’m saying. This tool is helping me out. And now with enlarged keys…appreciate you, Sir.

    16 Chevonne Reynolds

    This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for!! I am so glad I purchased this software. Jermaine you are a GENIUS!! The next thing I’d like to see is a way to save your settings. Like if I am listening to a song in Ab and have special settings such as loops etc….I’d like to be able to save that so that I can retrieve it next time. If you don’t change anything else I am still so glad that I have the song robot!!! Remain blessed


    17 Dudley

    Will this song robot work on a mac?


    18 Duval

    Can the robot has an option to tell which chords are being played by the combination of keys?


    19 frederick

    Hi Jermaine, the robot looks useful, but, I am a MAC user.
    Has this software been developed for MAC-USERS so as to
    take full advantage of the power and flexibility of the


    20 Jermaine Griggs

    At the moment, just pc. But we’re working on a cross platform version.


    21 Pat

    Have you got that Mac version yet???


    22 Earnest Rodgers

    Hey, hey hey! I think I may be in there now, especially, since I now have been made gold membership. Let me check out my budget before the price goes up.
    Thanks for looking out for us Jermaine, I thought that it was just me who needed the robot teaching tool to be enlarged, you’ve just proved that you seriously have the hearts of your students, you listened to us and I say thanks.
    Thanks for caring,Pastor Rodgers

    Hello Jermaine

    It has been good to see you and your company rise over the years and I have always been supporter of what you have been doing since you started. Well done. There are two things I need to discuss regarding the songs robot (which is a superb tool – nice one!):

    1. I have chosen to become a licenced reseller of the program and in trying to sell the program I am really hampered by your own promotion. Because the term ‘free program’ comes up in ‘your’ videos. Now this is a BIG problem as my clients go to the tutorial videos (by clicking from the song robot program) and hear that you provide the program for free!!! This seriously damaging my credibility and the product I am trying to sell.
    2. Consequently as I am attempting to sell this program to schools in the UK your videos while good for selling the product on your site in ‘no good’ for me trying to ‘sell’ the product on mine promotions, because unlike yourself I cannot sell your midi files as an attractive option to the general public or my piano students (They do not want to learn the selection you provide). As a reseller yoursite promotions both on your site and hard wired in the song robot program is now hampering me from selling effectively at all at the moment.

    How can we (I) get around this problem?

    URGENT RESPONSE NEEDED. Otherwise the the song robot is too good to be true!!!!! (Great program, great tool)

    Hi Paul, I have replied personally.


    25 Fern Hallee

    I would like to know if I can apply the Robot System to my Roland E-60 with out making any changes to my system. If any changes needs to be made, what are they. Hope to here from you.
    Thank you,


    26 Jermaine Griggs

    Hi Fern, it does not currently work with outside keyboards. It is totally self sufficient and works exactly as shown in the demo video.

    All the best,


    27 John

    When will we see a song robot that shows sheet music?


    28 Jermaine Griggs

    Hey John,

    We will probably add sheet music later but it’s really not one of the main concepts of our software and of our overall vision — “playing by ear.” But it’s definitely going to be one of those convenience functions added at a later time.



    29 shelia Martin

    I would like to speak with someone in person. I want to purchase the Music Robot, but I want to be sure that it’s what I need. Can you email me a number where I can speak with someone, or I can leave my number. My number is, 318-680-4366.


    30 Verla Green

    I would like to know can I buy theMusic Robot. when it first cam out I didn’t have the money to buy it.


    31 Barbara Burger

    I have lost my song file. Can I download this again, and how? My problem is that I’m not that computer savvy, so I guess I did something wrong when I tried to update to the newest version of the robot.


    32 Charles

    How do I d/l the robot software?? Where is it?


    33 GiGi

    I just jove this song Robot but one more enhancement would make it absolutely incredible. Jermaine, is it possible to include an MP3, WMA, AIFF to MIDI converter within the next upgrade so we can convert all music audio file formats we already have to MIDI files without having to purchase separate converter software?

    Thanks in advance!


    34 leon

    40 Jim Martin

    I went to the download site, not sure how to download the Song Robot update. What is the proper procedure?
    Thanks! Jim M


    41 HearandPlay

    Jim, login at http://www.hearandplay.com/digitalcenter and the latest update is always there. You can uninstall your current version and get this one. However, if you’ve bought in the last year, you already have latest version.



    42 Lorinda

    Hi Jermaine, I am still having problems with my midi robot . it showed download complete but the file is not coming through. can you help me . it been almost a month fighting with this . I called and left a message also please if you can. I sent payment through mail is that the problem .


    43 Tekena

    Wait can i get this song robot electronically rather than through shipment of CD?? I just want to download the software that’s all.


    44 iKen

    Hi Jermaine, I have one question:

    Will the Song Robot really help me to play by “ear”? or will we become dependent on it just like sight readers tend to become dependend on the sheet music?
