Home Concert Xtreme is an intelligent, interactive environment for learning, practicing, and performing music. Just load your musical score (in the form of a Standard MIDI File), connect your MIDI instrument, and start to play. Home Concert Xtreme stands ready to work with you!

Home Concert Xtreme’s patented technology provides features that meet the needs of:

• students at all levels

• music hobbyists

• teachers

• performers

Here’s how it all works:

Load a Standard MIDI File into Home Concert Xtreme, choose one or two tracks to be displayed in notation, and start playing your MIDI instrument. Based on the settings that you choose, Home Concert Xtreme will:

• display the chosen tracks in music notation

• determine your location, tempo, and dynamic expression

• musically coordinate the accompaniment tracks to match your playing

• turn your pages intelligently

You speed up, and Home Concert Xtreme speeds up. You jump to another place in the music, and Home Concert Xtreme jumps there and continues following you. If you are learning a piece, Home Concert Xtreme will wait for you to play the right note and even show you which note to play.

Home Concert Xtreme is compatible with thousands of commercial and free MIDI files as well as MIDI files that you make yourself. In particular, it is compatible with the MIDI files that coordinate with the most popular piano teaching methods as well as dozens of piano concerto MIDI files and more.

Lead your own band or orchestra with Home Concert Xtreme as an accompanist, rehearsal tool, or music tutor!

Home Concert Xtreme comes with a General MIDI tone generator from Crimson Technology, Inc. It also works with external MIDI devices.

Home Concert Xtreme works in three ways:

• Learn Mode: waits for you to play the correct note
• Jam Mode: plays the accompaniment tracks normally and you have to keep up
• Perform Mode: follows your tempo and jumps to another part of the piece if you jump

• Track Mixer: manage your accompaniment tracks by turning them on or off or adjusting their volume
• Mute Accompaniment: single-button for muting all accompaniment tracks
• Keyboard Display: on-screen keyboard that highlights the correct note(s) and position on the keyboard
• Practice Loop: mark a section of the piece for repetitive practice
• Metronome
• Single-Hand Practice Option
• Score Enhancements: user-created score enhancements (dynamics, fingering, clef changes etc.)
• Playback Controls: Playback your most recent performance.
• Performance Options: Set markers for wait-for-attack, wait-for-special-signal, restore-tempo, and ignore-soloist.

Home Concert Xtreme comes loaded with sample MIDI files from a variety of publishers to get you started.

Home Concert Xtreme works with thousands of Standard MIDI Files. The best quality files usually come from commercial publishers. You can also make your own using a sequencer, notation, or auto-arranger program. Visit www.timewarptech.com for more details. Use iTunes, DiskAid or iMazing (www.digidna.net) or email attachment to copy MIDI files to Home Concert Xtreme on your iPad.

• iPad running iOS 5.1.1 or later
• Properly formatted MIDI Files for Home Concert Xtreme to function optimally. The files should be organized to logical beats and barlines; have key and time signature(s); and have left- and right- hand keyboard parts assigned to separate MIDI channels (Type 0) or to separate tracks (Type 1)
• iOS MIDI interface or appropriate cable and adapter to connect your iPad to your MIDI keyboard.

Ratings and Reviews

One of the best apps for learning piano!

Mario Ajero

I have used Home Concert Xtreme for Mac for almost 10 years and the iPad version for about 5 years. It has been hands down one of the most valuable apps that I’ve used with my students. If it was just a MIDI accompaniment player, it would be fantastic just for its ease-of-use, but it’s so much more than that. It displays MIDI files in real music notation with automatic page-turns more eloquently than any other app. The Learn mode gives immediate feedback to piano students by stopping the music until they play the correct keys with helpful prompts on the onscreen keyboard. The real magic though is in the Perform mode where the MIDI accompaniments intelligently speeds up/slows down and gets softer/louder based on the pianist’s playing. This gives pianists the opportunity to play with more organic fluctuations in tempo and dynamics for meaningful music-making experiences! This app is a must-have for both piano teachers and students.

Liquid accompaniment a real plus


Extensive assortment of free tunes, to start with, especially nice works Christopher Norton.
Not as quick nor easy to learn music with as Synthesia. Falling notes are much easier to follow than reading music notation. I like Syn's highlighting of note to show your score position better than the whole bar highlighting with HCX.

However: Following YOUR tempo, as HMX does is way more fun than Syn's rigid stopping because you it a note a bit early. Maybe rigid is better to learn with? Following your tempo is way more fun. This is what makes this app worth having, and I'll be using it AFTER Syn. Teaches me the notes and tempo.

A great MIDI app worth every penny


I have been using the desktop version of Home Concert Xtreme since the beginning, and I am excited that it is finally here for the iPad. This is hands-down the best MIDI app out there for pianists of all levels. Not only does it aid with learning the notes, it is a powerful practice and performance tool. The program extracts the piano part from any MIDI file and displays the notation. If the pianists chooses to use practice mode, the program will show any incorrect notes and display the correct note on the keyboard display. However, where this program excels is when you choose performance mode. Performers can use the iPad and Home Concert Xtreme to display the notation during a performance, and the program will keep track of where you are and even turn the pages for you, as well as following your tempo or dynamic changes.

The program is very easy to use right away, and is useful with just the basic features. After you become comfortable with the basic features, you shoul delve into the more advanced features, like indicating finger numbers, dynamics, and creating practice loops.

There is no other app like this. I highly recommend it for pianists of all ages and ability levels. It helps make practicing fun, and brings an exciting dynamic to live performance.
