Re: Forum Update

Looks good and seems to be working as expected. One thing - I am missing the direct links to the the recent posts (Your posts, New posts, Unread posts, Unanswered topics, Active topics). Those are normally my entry to looking around to what's going on when passing by. Having to go through the drop-d...

Re: Need structured lesson plan to help me advance.

What's your goal? Structure will help, but a goal should come first. In my case I like to play just or mostly for myself, every blue moon in a family setting. My goal is to have fun and learn a few songs I like by heart and have a few that I keep working on. Synthesia is my teacher for songs and my ...

Re: Any good lighted, weighted key digital pianos out there?

I'm pretty sure that I got the lights to light up with Synthesia when trying out the 170 model. Only issue was that it wouldn't use the three lights to drop notes but just the one on the bottom if I remember correctly.

Re: Personalize tool - muted notes when scrolling

1. I would suggest there to be a global setting "Playback when manually scrolling" and apply it to all notes and the metronome (incl. during note/hand edit mode, where it is already active). 2. I was going to say that seeing the start of the loop only makes sense during loop edit mode - but that wou...

Re: Custom hand settings lost when using background

Same effect here: When I start off with a song too complicated to me and edit notes into the background or silence, every progress is lost (also again, anytime I add something back in). I've accepted it as "it's now basically a new song" so the previous progress isn't helpful anymore. If I used prof...

Re: Personalize tool - muted notes when scrolling

1) Just noticed another weird scrolling effect - when the metronome is on, and music is paused, scrolling up will playback the metronome, but not the notes. Is there a specific reason for that? 2) And another one (that may have been covered before) - when manually scrolling over the edge of a loop e...

Re: Restart a loop with a delay

einschalten / anschalten both mean to turn on "Das Licht ist an.": "the light is on" (but: "Das Licht ist ein." would not be correct) ein Licht= a light or lamp (not: a light that is necessarily turned on) "ein" means one as in counting, but as I or 1 on a switch means "on", einschalten has the same...

Re: Restart a loop with a delay

Regarding the restart after X errors setting - yes, having it available in the loop menu - even if it remains a global setting - sounds like a good idea!

Re: Restart a loop with a delay

Great, thanks for picking this up. With regards to the shortcut name, I would suggest simply "Restart loop". in German I'd call it "Schleife neu starten" This brings me to further translation suggestions: <text id="loopDelay" v="Zeitverzögerung zwischen den Loops" /> <text id="toggleLoop" v="Loop sc...

Thanks! Are there preview versions available for iOS? Because while I did use a windows tablet for a while I'm back to an iPad as it was just more reliable.

Interesting - I haven't had it under any circumstances apart from "no available devices".

In which other situation would this be shown?

I mean the screen where you can practice rhythm or melody.

It does say settings (so it does what it says), still it would be nice to get back here without having to reselect the song.

Restart a loop with a delay

When I set up a loop to practice I typically put a delay between loops to concentrate on the next round. Now when I'm in the loop and I've decided that I have made too many mistakes I see these options to restart the loop: Press Previous Bookmark (<) : This has a few issues. I need to actually have ...

Personalize tool - muted notes when scrolling

I would like to suggest a little change to the personalize tool, which allows me to assign notes to fingers, the background or to mute them. I often use it to reduce complexity in a piece when learning difficult sections. For this I find it very helpful to have playback when I'm scrolling through th...

Re: Bluetooth reconnect in Song

One optimization request: when I'm in a song and the connection is lost, I get the yellow trip alert. The options button takes me directly to the bluetooth connection screen and when done right back to the song position. When I tap on a song and there is no connection, the song practice screen offer...

Re: [iPad] Bug / Typo

1. "A Tisket, A Tasket" didn't allow me to reproduce it either, perhaps it needs to have left and right notes. Try this: Start "Chopsticks", manually jump to somewhere in the middle via the progress bar, press some wrong notes and see the count go up. Jump Back using the "<" button and the counter i...
