Re: Several Instruments from Midi file

Someone can probably give you a much better answer than I can but... With the song selected, click on Hands, Colors, and Instruments Click on the Color Icon. At the bottom is a gray box with a red X in it. If you select this, those notes will be visually hidden and play in the background. This allow...

Re: How to learn piano using synthesia

I've been waiting for someone to respond as I asked the about question about a year ago. The only response I got was to hire a piano teacher and take some lessons. I think it's still a good question as I would also like to know what a good lesson plan would be using Synthesia. Two major exercises I ...

Re: Keyboard Recommendation

I can only comment on the lowest priced one, the EZ-220. As a beginner, it works very well for me. Synthesia works with it with no problem. I enjoy the lighted keys as it helps me figure out where to put my hands. It also sounds great, but does not have weighted keys, but has touch sensitive keys (t...

Re: A small or BIIIG thank you to the developers of Synthesia.

If this forum had the capability of giving a post a thumbs up, I'd do so here.
As mentioned, perhaps we'll have that feature 150 years from now. :lol:

Re: e-ink screens friendly ?

When I clicked on the link, the first thing I saw was $250,000. I thought that might be a bit out of my price range! But then realized it was donations.

If I ever suffer from eye strain, I'll know where to look.

Thanks for the info.

Re: losing all stats and program launching as if first time

It happened to me once.

Re: How do I share my original compositions

I've been waiting for someone with more expertise to answer. But... If you are referring to your personal library within Synthesia, go to Settings/Songs and click on the plus mark next to the Help button. From there point it to wherever you song/songs are and they'll be included in your song list. Y...

I agree, if it would help keep the Synthesia development team solvent to keep getting upgrades it would be a worthwhile investment.

Need structured lesson plan to help me advance.

I’ve been practicing on my keyboard for about 18 months now. I do this for my own entertainment only. I use Synthesia exclusively for my playing experience and I have no interest in learning to read music. My problem is I’m stagnating and have made no progress for many months. My hope is there are s...

New user registration issues.

Nicholas, Could you explain just a bit more how having spammer's emails rejected gets your email blacklisted? That doesn't seem fair. Is the only viable plan to let things cool down or are there plans to revamp the registration process somehow. I'm just a bit curious about what's going on behind the...

Replay song via pressing a piano key

Because I'm incredibly lazy, it would be nice to retry a song by just pressing the middle C key for example when the song is over. That way I wouldn't have to lift my hand off the keys to grab a mouse.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I am also a retired guy. I got a EZ-220 for Christmas last year; my introduction to any type of musical instrument. At first I tried to learn to read music, but for me, it was as bad as trying to learn a foreign language. It was much more fun to use Synthesia, as I also play video games. You can dow...
