Re: Finger Number

The upcoming major Synthesia 11 update is all about improving the sheet music display. Adding finger hint numbers there is one of the planned improvements. :)

Re: Finger Number

Does this guide show how to get the labels on the keyboard keys the way you wanted? As for making the APK available as a separate download, I've coincidentally been working on a few improvements to automate more of both the dev and official release sides of our internal process. As one of the side-e...

Re: 10.6.5134 - Full-Screen Notation

I have the first attempted beta iOS version on the list for two more previews from now. ;) I get the following errors - see screenshot if I click on Settings or something similar. Have you ever done any customization/modification to the UI? (That is, do you have a "ui.xml" or "colors.xml" file in y...

Re: Synthesia should update its song listing while open

Not updating the song list when the file system is changed is embarrassing and will be fixed soon. Regarding file formats: kar can already be opened. (Try it.) :D mcsz is proprietary. For now, export a MIDI from MuseScore. Soon, export a MusicXML file from MuseScore. pdf is an output-only print form...

Re: Fingering in %APPDATA% folder but on Android

Hmm, usually file saving is all-or-nothing. Is anything custom appearing anywhere (say, the recent songs list on the title screen)? I think the save location varies by device and manufacturer. It'll be around there someplace. If you can search the filesystem, try looking for "settings.xml". The rest...

Re: Midi Bluetooth adaptor not connecting? New tablet.

That is... very strange. In over ten years, I can't remember ever hearing about a required pedal press before.

Does that still happen when you directly connect the keyboard (vs. Bluetooth)?

Re: Midi Bluetooth adaptor not connecting? New tablet.

We're hoping to get native, proper Bluetooth support in the app in a few releases. Sorry for the inconvenience of launching the other app in the meantime! To prevent the duplicate sound, just disable the "Built-in MIDI Synthesizer" from the Music Output list on the Settings screen. That's the one th...

Re: Midi Bluetooth adaptor not connecting? New tablet.

One last thing to try:

0. (Leave Synthesia set to "Android M MIDI".)
1. Download this app.
2. Launch it (hopefully your keyboard will appear) and connect to the keyboard.
3. Without closing that app, switch over to Synthesia.

Now does it appear in the list?

Re: Midi Bluetooth adaptor not connecting? New tablet.

Try choosing "Android M MIDI" near the top of that screen (and then restarting the app). Does that get the device to show up in the list?

Re: How do I share my original compositions

Double-check that your search box is empty. (It's more of a "filter" box than "search", so there is a tendency to accidentally hide things.)

If you choose the orange "All Songs (one big list)" option from the top level of the song list and then type its name in the search box, does that reveal it?

How will you be sharing MIDI files? I couldn't spot it in the video description.

(Also, note the 2nd bullet point in the pink box, above.)

Re: Coolsoft MidiSynth

Since Synthesia 10.5 (Nov-2018), we've included the same BASSMIDI-based component that VirtualMIDISynth uses right inside Synthesia. If you head over to the Settings screen, it should be called "Built-in MIDI Synthesizer" and if you put any SoundFont files in a folder that Synthesia scans for songs,...

Re: No name notes Sharps and Flats

Sorry, this is a consequence of the most recent version of the video creator being older than the most recent release of Synthesia. The short answer is to: Download Synthesia 10.4 (from the "Older Versions" section). In that version: Settings --> Gameplay --> Note Labels --> Show All. Close Synthesi...

Unfortunately this data lives in a private place on Android that is inaccessible unless your device is rooted. :?

This is an interesting area of research! Back in 2009 , one of our forum users was working on something like this using some of the current academic research on the subject.

We can do the update manually (if you send an email with all the details), but an easier way for both sides is probably the new assistant on our support page. This link will save you a few clicks. Just choose "Update email address" and enter the old and new email addresses there. On our side that ma...

Re: 10.6.5134 - Full-Screen Notation

Not yet. The bulk of the sheet music improvements will be in previews closer to Synthesia 11's release.
