Re: 10.5 preview r4792, r4801 - New Synth!

after installing the Classroom installer, C:\ProgramData\Synthesia folder appeared but not the C:\ProgramData\SynthesiaDev folder. I found the data folder "shell:appdata\SynthesiaDev" is it because I installed the Classroom installer last?

Re: 10.5 preview r4792, r4801 - New Synth!

Hi Nicholas, I've downloaded r4801. The latency sounds and feels very minimal to me. I have 2 other minor issues though. 1. when opening the program it always open in a smaller window size and doesn't remember full screen when starting up. 2. It looks like r4801 doesn't create a systemwide folder fo...

Re: Show only Sheet music at start up

i was on the version before 4664 for my classroom. I do have certain settings locked across all computers by moving the settings.xml, folders.xml, bindings.xml, multidevice.xml to the system-wide settings location on each computer. I think its something I did with that. Which .xml file is it that lo...

Show only Sheet music at start up

Is there a way to only display the sheet music at startup without pressing F5 every time? For some lessons with my students I wanted them to practice reading only the sheet music and then press F5 to display the falling notes when they get lost.

adding finger numbers changes the tempo

Hi Nicholas, I notice that in synthesia 11 preview build, when I was adding finger numbers, my tempo changed from 100% to 107% it was originally 120 BPM but now its 127 BPM. When pressing the plus and minus buttons, it only changes the tempo by 10% ex: 100% goes to 90% or 110%. So now it can only go...

Re: Synthesia 11 Roadmap

Regarding when it might improve again, outside of bug fixes (I've already found a couple), I suspect it'll be another 22 years before it gets another bump. It has never struck me as a particularly high-priority part of their operating system. The good news is that there are good (free!) alternative...

Re: Synthesia 11 Roadmap

Well, the lower-latency Win10 synth feature just went up last night if you'd like to try it. (Opening MusicXML files will be coming in a future preview.) Just tried it and the win10 synth has improved greatly! I did a side by side comparison with my macbook synth with synthesia and it is close! (ma...

Re: Synthesia 11 Roadmap

They already have (in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update last August). To use it though, each MIDI-enabled app has to make changes to support Microsoft's new API. So, I suppose I meant "the upcoming [support in Synthesia for the updated] Windows 10 GS synth..." In any event, we're down to the "a few...

import midi - track names? and drum midi

I made a MIDI file with multiple parts(each part named) from Sibelius, when I import it into to synthesia they didn't include the names of the original midi tracks. Is there a way for me to view the original track names in synthesia? Also, it looks like it didn't import the drum set midi track corre...

Re: Playing/Practicing with an Accompaniment Background Trac

Hey Nicholas,

how do i get the drum midi to sound like a drum set? I don't see a drum set in the sounds part. I created a drum set midi track from sibelius and would like to use it as a background track as I play the piano parts
