Re: Synthesia 11

If you're still getting clipping, you might even try reducing the volume on the Settings --> Built-in MIDI Synthesizer screen down below 100%. That may solve it. So, a bit of nomenclature: both Synthesia and VirtualMIDISynth use BASSMIDI under the hood. In this case, "I guess Bassmidi doesn't prelo...

Re: Synthesia 11

I tried the other Bassmidi version now and there's much less crackling! It only crackles when it really gets loud, like fortissimo and louder. I guess the problem is not caused by the soundfont, I had this issue with both the included soundfont as well as others. There's just another little thing: S...

Re: Synthesia 11

I'm using the General User Soundfont because I find the sounds very realistic. I set the Buffer to 250 and there indeed is a latency and I'm afraid to tell you that the crackling got even worse. But I think that it might be the soundfonts I used. Do you have any recommendations for soundfonts? Edit:...

Re: Synthesia 11

I tried now to set the volume slider to 50 % but instead of crackling, there's a dull "buzzing" in the background. When I set it back, it starts crackling again.

Re: Synthesia 11

I'm sorry to interrupt here but I have some problems with 10.5. I use the built-in Midi synth now but unfortunately it causes severe crackling when the volume gets too loud or when there are many instruments. Furthermore, I use Synthesia in full screen mode but when I exit and restart, Synthesia is ...

Re: 10.5 preview r4442 - Fixes for the Fixes

Sounds like a great update but where can I get the new colors.xml? Or is the one available in the modding thread the same?

Re: 10.4 preview r4376, r4393 - Feature round-up

Okay, I think I got it. I made two screenshots of both the versions 10.2-r3742 (the last with D3D) and r4393 and saw that the border of the individual notes are of a slightly lighter color in the new version. This makes the border look less defined, at least with my eyes. Are there still any color c...

Re: 10.4 preview r4376 - Feature round-up

I still want to answer that a few other things changed at the same time as the removal of DirectX. I don't believe this is OpenGL to blame. And while 120Hz is pretty extreme (just 8ms to do all of Synthesia's input, processing, and drawing each frame!) there are still lots of reasons it might stutt...

Re: 10.4 preview r4376 - Feature round-up

I found a rather funny thing yesterday. The name for the Pad 2 (warm) is upside-down! I made a screenshot of the error. Unfortunately, I still have the problems I used to have. The notes seem blurry and stutter sometimes. I disabled V-Sync in the Synthesia settings and my graphic card's settings, an...

Re: 11 preview r4264 - New Notation Rendering

I still have a problem! I did what you suggested and turned off V-Sync in both the Synthesia settings and my GPU's settings. Then Synthesia runs at about 200 frames and the notes get very blurry. When I turn back the GPU setting, Synthesia runs at 120 frames but it stutters every few seconds. And th...

Re: 11 preview r4264 - New Notation Rendering

Hello Nicholas, I didn't write for quite some time now, huh? I just came by your page and downloaded the newest dev build of Synthesia, and it doesn't work properly on my PC. I use the Coolsoft VirtualMidiSynth, and the new build doesn't recognise it. Furthermore, the rendering only runs on 60 FPS. ...

Re: 11 preview r3968, r3974 - Platform Update

I really did this. The first thing I did when I downloaded the new build was that I opened the configuration panel to check if every setting is like I want it to. I still think it's because of OpenGL!

Thank you for the tip but, unfortunately, this didn't work. It's still stuttering. I have a NVidia Geforce GTX 765M.

Re: 11 preview r3968, r3974 - Platform Update

Hey Nicholas, it's great that you published the new dev build of Synthesia! But unfortunately, I have a problem. The screen is flickering when I start or close Synthesia and while it plays a song, the screen stutters and the framerate drops sometimes when there are many notes on the screen, just lik...

Bulls Eye! The stutter is gone now! I'm glad we found the problem. Thank you very much! :D But what does the Jamboxx do?

Re: 10.2 Preview r3659-r3715 - Lots of stuff

I'm running Windows 8.1 on my PC. I'm afraid to tell you that I had the problem on all builds now. I tried to take out the appdata folder to see if that works, but this didn't help, too. I wanted to make a screen video for you but when I try to make one, the FPS of Synthesia get unstable and drop to...

Re: 10.2 Preview r3659-r3715 - Lots of stuff

Sorry but this didn't work, too. Could you give me a link to the previous Synthesia 10.2 builds, please? I deleted the previous builds but
I'd like to check if the error only occurs in r3715.

Re: 10.2 Preview r3659-r3715 - Lots of stuff

I mean the falling notes. Strangely, they stutter roughly every 3 three seconds. The framerate drops to 116 during the stutter. The framerate drop also occurs in the menus, but it's only visually
noticeable when the notes are falling.

Re: 10.2 Preview r3659-r3715 - Lots of stuff

No, this didn't work. OpenGL even makes it worse. I resetted the settings of my graphics card again because this was the problem last time, but this time it didn't help.

Re: 10.2 Preview r3659-r3715 - Lots of stuff

I have a new problem now in r3715! Every few measures the scrolling of the notes is stuttering. I tried several Midis of different sizes but it doesn't matter what I choose, the screen always stutters.
