Re: Wrong/incomplete keys lit & certain instruments silent

To fix a midi channel bug, I simply use http://openmidiproject.sourceforge.jp/Sekaiju_en.html to translate down those higher channels to lower ones *Please note: Sekaiju is made in Japan, therefore default GUI language is Japanese. To change to English, select "Setup" - "Language" from the menu and ...

Re: Wrong/incomplete keys lit & certain instruments silent

The only way to solve the "time delay" bug that I can think of (late lighted keys) is to duplicate the midi events and send the key light events __early__ to the piano. There is like a >100ms delay for the lights to show on all these boards.

Re: Message "progress will be lost"

I also found 8.4's "Lost your progress!" dialog to be annoying, but some very good progress elsewhere! Keep up the great work!

Re: Lighted keys advance notice timing

Well I don't see how you'd play smoothly if the light only lights up _after_ you're supposed've hit it.

It's like having a coach that says to you SWING! a fraction of a second _after_ the ball goes across the plate. Not very helpful.

Re: Practice mode wont pause

I'm getting this issue too since 8.3 (still have it in 8.4), maybe I screwed up one of the other settings?

Re: Why not develop an Android version

I personally don't see the need for portable versions. Synthesia is great as a desktop app.

Re: Looping Bug on Macbook Pro

No luck with that setting either -- System.MacCtrlClickForRightClick did not work for me -- I have a MacBook air from about 2009 running Mountain Lion (10.8.1) Running Synthesia 8.4 preview R1957

Off-scale notes play as weird noises on LK-270

On the LK-270, the highest octave here completely screws up in playback, playing stuff from the Drum track instead of musical notes. Note that 81 key keyboards seem to play this back just fine, it's just this 61-key Lk 270 that is playing percussive sound in the place of melody. (Should it either dr...

Re: Lighted keys advance notice timing

I wrote this as an edit, but somehow I re-edited it back -- What the problem is is the LIGHTED note only goes on WHEN the colored bar is dropping out of the bottom of the screen. This means that you can't play continuously by just looking at the keys. because by the time the note drops out. it is to...

Do you think we should use a stackexchange-like board?

I like the http://stackoverflow.com Q&A style board. There is a list of stackexchange "clones" here: http://meta.stackoverflow.com/a/37953/ Do people think using one of those would be better than PHPBB? I find it kind of hard to navigate PHPBB, or find stuff that is important (you can't flag somethi...

Re: Lighted keys advance notice timing

Well, it's actually I think the delay from the keyboard. The keyboard takes a fraction of a second to display the light for the note. I can either pull _forward the note beginnings in time in the midi's_ (painstaking), so that the next note is sent before the current one is completed (and so it arri...

Hide scoring

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like I have to be "extra careful" when I play, trying to get a good score. Sometimes I want the numbers to go away and the status screen (where it shows "how you did" relative to other plays) _not_ to show, I just want to play (and still let it record that information,...

Re: Keyboard lights

Same here, LK-270. As soon as you select "Played by You" for any track in "Practice Song Rhythm", the lights stop working (correctly configured channel 3/4 and everything).

The keys light up only when you have all tracks set "Played by Synthesia".

It works fine if you pick "Practice Song Melody"

Lighted keys advance notice timing

I got an LK-270 and the lighted keys work great, but the time delay (about 0.2 seconds I'd say) is enough to _not_ be able to play the song continuously by just looking at the lighted keys. You can't follow the lighted keys since they light up so late. I want to be able to have the keys light up, sa...

Hey, The problem only appears on my RD-700SX. The problem doesn't appear when I connect my Casio LK-270. On the LK-270 the instruments load and play correctly. On my RD 700 SX only, the first 2 channels are completely silent (no sound at all) and the tracks won't respond to manually choosing an inst...
