Re: How to add Pedal to Synthesia

Which is nice but it doesn't display proper note length... This can get a little tricky. For Synthesia's part, it's showing exactly the "when the key is pressed" until "when the key is released" that is stored in the MIDI file, regardless of pedal usage. I think the habit virtually every MIDI autho...

Re: Android Step forwards and backwards while music scope is displayed

Hmm, the Android release is a little behind the others. Perhaps I'm thinking of a more recent change in 10.6?

For Android, the 10.6 release is still in beta. If you opt-in to the beta, does it work in 10.6?

Re: No name notes Sharps and Flats

There is always a key signature. If the file doesn't contain an explicit one, it's implicitly "C Major". So, FL not adding a key signature means that you get the most "normal" one by default. And the answer is still the same about missing labels: that means you must have opened Synthesia 10.5 or lat...

Re: CALLBACK_EVENT with no valid address in dwCallback

How curious. I just tracked it back to a commit from Aug-2007(!) where I appear to have been following the instructions on this Microsoft page to the letter in an effort to add SysEx message sending. Notice there, they just say to change the dwFlags parameter but not to actually pass in the event du...

Re: iPad app struggles to output notes to Yamaha P-45

Curiously this isn't the first time I think I've heard that particular from Apple has had trouble. You're right: usually their stuff is pretty spot-on and works basically flawlessly. But there must be something about that particular adapter. The last time I'd checked (admittedly a year or two ago), ...

Re: Ios only black friday?

Hmm, you're the first person I think I can recall asking. I suppose Apple does give nice controls for scheduling sales on in-app purchases. It's just been a little tricky deciding what a sale would look like for something that's already only $8. Would a "good" sale be $6? $5? It's always felt like i...

Re: 10.6.5134 - Full-Screen Notation

Ah ha, I see what you mean now about being "slightly out of alignment". Having everything lined up correctly to the beats in a MIDI file is called "quantization". It looks like that song isn't properly quantized, so some of the notes are starting before the measure they really belong to. The bad new...

Re: midi editing lost

Do you remember which version you upgraded from? There haven't been any updates to the data formats in a long, long time. Did you happen to run the uninstaller for the previous version first? (That is never required.) There is a checkbox in the uninstaller that asks "Remove all saved data". It's dis...

Re: Roland FP-10 bluetooth and Synthesia app

Try this:

1. In Synthesia, on the Settings screen: choose "Android M MIDI" from the list at the top.
2. Swipe the app completely closed.
3. Download this free utility app.
4. Pair with your FP-10 in the utility.
5. Launch Synthesia and hopefully the FP-10 will be in the list.

Re: User Default Song Settings additionally to System Default Song Settings

Does "deep history" mean a history that persists between app sessions?

Re: No name notes Sharps and Flats

Label error: those notes are named according to the key signature stored in the file. Use a MIDI editor to adjust the key signature stored in the file.

Forcing Synthesia to show all labels: again, from the top answer in this topic, Settings --> Gameplay --> Note Labels --> Show All.

Re: Sliders on keyboard changed

Hmm, the "reset" that Synthesia does between screens is pretty aggressive. It might cause the sort of re-initialization you're seeing. Try this: Hold your Shift key while launching the app to show the configuration window. Find the section of the advanced settings list with all the "Midi.Reset..." o...

Hmm, I suppose I'd need to know a little more about the device first. It looks like it's Raspberry Pi based? If it's just lighting the keys, you'll probably only need to enable key lights for that (output) device. Regarding the Bluetooth-related crashes, Microsoft's support for Bluetooth-MIDI is pre...

Re: Android Step forwards and backwards while music scope is displayed

Clicking in the sheet view (in 10.5 or later) should navigate right to a particular note (and you can drag left/right to quickly scroll through the music).
