Re: Easier control of loop area - Feature request

Sorry for the late reply. I'm on a large HP Slate 17" tablet, running Android. It's a large tablet but still, even a 1cm square button requires good accuracy to hit, and that's mainly because of the ergonomics of the situation. I have the tablet situated just like a piece of sheet music - so my hand...

Re: Continuous Play while Scrolling - Feature Request

Cool - Makes a lot of sense to release in smaller chunks, for the reasons you mentioned. Looking forward to the next drop.

Re: Easier control of loop area - Feature request

Good point about vertical real estate. Actually, speaking of alternatives, there may be an even more effective way to make interacting with the controls easier. Another ergonomic issue that I have is I don't hit the right button with my finger every time, even with my 17" tablet (in fact, perhaps th...

Re: Easier control of loop area - Feature request

Interesting! I definitely see what you mean, though one would need a pretty large screen to have that effect and get most notes visible on most non-novice songs. I guess for me those extra pixels won't get in the way (maybe my eyes have to move a millimeter more?) - but I find myself interacting wit...

Re: Connecting with the "Piano Hi-Lite" from "The One"

Ok I finally got it to update. I am now getting strange behavior from the Hi-Lite device. Will have to find a way to record a video of it. Stand by...

Re: Easier control of loop area - Feature request

I hear you on that. I use markers specifically for that purpose (to mark "learning points" in the song). If the loop interactions are smart/intuitive (perhaps a "snap to marker" preference), all you would need to do is drag the loop area to match each section. At most it should be two drag operation...

Yep in that case, that's the ticket!

Re: Easier control of loop area - Feature request

It's quite possible I'm not understanding what wall-clock time is :) I just mean the loop area length (however many of those thin vertical rectangles that make up the loop area) would stay fixed as you drag the entire loop area forward (or back) along the timeline.

Re: Continuous Play while Scrolling - Feature Request

Here's where the need comes from for me: I'm practicing a few measures, and a bunch of chords are coming up in rapid succession. What would really help me learn those chords is if I could quickly and easily interrupt normal playback, and scroll/scrub back to the chords one by one to see where to pla...

Re: Easier control of loop area - Feature request

@nicholas I agree - having multiple loop areas seems like a bit of an overkill. And I'm glad you're planning to improve the loop function interface. To clarify on my suggestion #2: Yes, the idea is to keep the loop's wall-clock length the exact same. So if I have defined a loop area covering 4 measu...

Easier control of loop area - Feature request

It would be great to have easier ways to manipulate an existing loop area. It's cumbersome currently having to redefine loop areas from scratch every time. Suggestion: 1) Tap+Hold on the edges of a loop area to extend/shrink the loop area (should snap to time blocks and markers) 2) Tap+Hold on the l...

Continuous Play while Scrolling - Feature Request

It would be great if there were a toggle to keep the song playing while manually scrolling the raindrop notes. This would allow us to, for example, stop on a particular chord, and not only see which keys on the piano to press, but also hear it.

Re: Connecting with the "Piano Hi-Lite" from "The One"

Hi Nicholas - Thanks for the quick response. Yes I'm using an Android Tablet. I just joined the beta. Will try it again, however seems I already had it installed (see attached image)? What version should I be using? I went to Settings and tried choosing the device for input and/or output, and I cann...

Connecting with the "Piano Hi-Lite" from "The One"

Hello, I'm a long-time Synthesia customer and decided to get a Piano Hi-Lite (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/piano-hi-lite-play-piano-in-3-minutes/x/3370843#/) for my digital piano, because it supports Synthesia. Has anyone gotten it as well, and more importantly, gotten it to work as expected? ...
