Re: frequent "random" crash

Alright, there is a new (Synthesia 10.6.5327) macOS build available. Does that one still crash when you close the app? (We haven't been able to reproduce this one on our side, so I just had to take a guess at what it might have been.)

Re: iPad 11" and Roland FP-10

That is a nice workaround, thanks for the report! (I'd forgotten that once a BLE-MIDI device is connected via any app, it shows up in the list of MIDI devices in every app.)

Re: 10.6.5311 - Official Release

That's good to hear! I actually use a few different generations of Kindle Fire to test the Android version against internally. They're impressive little tablets for how little they cost. I've considered a Kindle Store release... but I might be at my limit for how many different, wacky, broken platfo...

Re: iPad 11" and Roland FP-10

One small caveat: if you've already updated your iPad to iPadOS 13 or later, that OS update broke the "Bluetooth Settings" button in Synthesia, which now crashes immediately if you tap it. (If you've still got an older version of iOS, it should be fine.) We'll hopefully be releasing a small bug-fix ...

Re: iPad 11" and Roland FP-10

They should work together just fine. :) Did you mean the 11" iPad Pro? If it's the model with USB-C, you can get away with connecting the two using a single, plain USB B-to-C cable . Even better, the Bluetooth feature should let you connect them with NO additional hardware (although, the latency--or...

Re: 10.6.5311 - Official Release

Sorry, I've been meaning to get the automatic upload of an APK to our servers added to our build process so it wouldn't require a manual step after a request.

In the meantime, here is a download link for this one: Synthesia 10.6.5311 for Android.

Re: Auto Difficulty set (BPM bassed)

That's an interesting idea. I'm curious how well difficulty correlates with song speed. (I could imagine a very simple piece that happened to be fast, and an incredibly difficult one that happened to be slow.) In any event, just being able to sort the list by tempo is valuable, even if it's not a pe...

Re: e-ink screens friendly ?

Long time, no see! Five years is a while. Welcome back! I've never seen an eInk display with such a high refresh rate. That would be perfect for Synthesia's sheet music display. ;) (I usually combat my own eye strain with an IPS monitor (vs. TN) and scaling text up as far as necessary.) The idea of ...

Sorry for the trouble. See the workaround listed at the top of this post . (Hold your Shift key while launching the app to show the advanced configuration window.)

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

What you guys are describing is the oldest known bug in Synthesia. Like I mentioned in the other topic, this is something I've been trying to track down forever. The root of the problem is that files are hard . (If you're interested in technology, that article is kind of scary because it illustrates...

Re: Bought Synthesia on Ebay

I would love to know more. There aren't any other official dealers of Synthesia unlock keys, so what you found was almost certainly a fraudulent service.

If you could, send an email to support@synthesiagame.com with the details. Thanks!

Re: Full notation - Start delay

Sorry! This was something I had the list to fix before 10.6 went out the door, but an iPadOS 13 bug forced an earlier release, so the full-screen sheet music went out sort of half-finished. This (and having some indication that finger hints can't be added in the sheet-only area) will be coming in th...

Re: Freeze while Start on Second Monitor

Good to hear! I wish the driver bug didn't exist, but I suppose this works in the meantime.

The thing I like most about this solution is that it can be used to override any setting. That makes it feel less like a one-off code change for a specific bug. :)

Re: Why does Synthesia read files so differently than other Music Notation Software?

As if the play speed or framerate was inconsistent or something. Do you mean there were small variations in the timing of when the notes were played? Or was there something else different wrong with the sound? Synthesia doesn't seem to know how to translate any of my MIDI files into sheet music? So...

September 2019:

Simple recording and sheet music down stems(!) are coming next time.

I just released a Synthesia 10.6 beta with an updated in-app purchase library that has a small chance that this might be fixed. If you'd like to try it, you can opt into beta versions of Synthesia on Android, here . You'll know you have the latest version when it says 10.6.5311 in the lower-right co...
