Re: FUBAR

That's good to hear! For as backward compatible as 3.0 was supposed to be, "they" (and I don't even know which "they") seem to have messed something up somewhere.

The scariest part is that almost all laptops and even some desktops are being made now without a 2.0 port anywhere on them. :?

Re: Full Screen Sheet Music Count Off

No count-in for the full-screen sheet was an oversight. (It's not a very interesting story, but Synthesia 10.6 went out the door early to address a crash introduced by a new version of iOS. For better or worse, the full-screen sheet is only 70% or so finished. Some visual count-in and better sheet-o...

Re: Android App for sight reading

I love to see something where you can have backing tracks added... The plan is to have it be a (super simple) six track recorder, like the quintessential recording features built into the "Personal Keyboard" type of digital pianos from Yamaha and Casio over the last 30 years. So you should be able ...

Re: Windows 10 bluetooth connection

Hmm, the "replace the DLL" step shouldn't be required anymore. That was a short-term workaround for a problem that has since been fixed. Does your FP-30 show up in MIDIberry ? That app uses the new Windows 10 UWP MIDI stuff natively and is a pretty good "second opinion" on whether Windows can see th...

Re: Change background image

This post describes how. It's a rather old post but the only thing that's changed is how to get to the configuration window. It used to be a separate app. Now you can show it by holding your Shift key while launching the app. The rest of the instructions are the same. On a Mac, the paths will be a ...

Re: How can I minimize MIDI latency / lag ?

I was able to find this post that mentions the latest Behringer driver package for the UMC202HD include a WASAPI and ASIO driver. It's from 2018, so there may be a newer one yet.

Re: How can I minimize MIDI latency / lag ?

It sounds like you've tried most of the common (and even not-so-common) stuff. (Thanks for all the detail in your post! That lets us jump right to the good stuff.) 1. ASIO4ALL is a generic driver for all sound hardware. Have you tried your U-Phoria's specific ASIO driver? That one might prevent the ...

Re: Current recommended MIDI to USB adapters?

Long time, no see! :)

That M-Audio adapter is usually alright. Any of the companies that primarily make audio stuff are usually safe.

It's the generic stuff you have to watch out for.

Re: Synthesia Graphics

Wow, that's... not great. :shock: :lol:

Do you remember if you've made any manual changes in your graphics driver to things like "quality vs. performance"? Or to any settings that mention "mipmaps" or "mip levels" by name?

Re: Drums output

An "ugly noise" is usually two notes being played at almost the exact same time. Our support assistant has two possible workarounds listed here. Do either of those solve the problem?

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

It's wild how far gone the whole software industry is these days in terms of offering everything for a subscription and trying to slowly squeeze more and more money out of people.

Re: Play and pause song while practicing

This is a popular request. Interestingly, this particular idea seems to take more and different shapes than most features.

Re: FUBAR

For what it's worth, the two problems (notes being queued up and shortcuts being ignored) on the device disconnect screen should now be fixed in the 10.6.5425 update that just went live.

Thanks again for the bug report!

Re: App Crash on iPad

Found and "fixed" (for some definition of fixed). :lol:

Beginning the roll-out process now. This usually takes a day or two for iPad.

Maybe this 10.6 will be more stable than all the other 10.6's. :?
