Note traces too long

Newbie: The traces for my eighth notes are as long as quarter notes and overlap the next note. I can't imagine what sixteenth and thirty-second notes are going to look like. Is there a resolution option I'm not setting right? If i use page-up/page-down I can separate the notes but then they are so b...

Re: Modding Wishlist

Re Alternate Keyboards Layouts per my post of 09-08-14: Are we any closer to being able to create the "experimental platform" to explore alternative keyboard layouts? I do see movement on key coloring. A simple color scheme I'm fond of (which can be done on real keyboards with markers or masking tap...

Re: Wrong instrument being played

I recently installed Synthesia 9.1.2601 on iPad 1 v. 5.1.1
The "acoustic grand piano" sounds more like an accordion
The same file played on my Mac sounds correct, like a piano.

Re: can we PLEEEEEASE have instant midi transpose function??

Another vote for Transpose function. Suppose I find a MIDI file for a song I want to play, but want to play in a different key? Of course, the black keys are easy with Synthesia. But maybe I'm a singer and want to transpose into my range, or want to play in the same key as a recording, or learn to p...

Re: Modding Wishlist

I was able to download the .xml files, but I'm afraid I would need some more orientation to make use of them. Let me make a philosophical point. Why would someone want to use Synthesia? Suppose the answer is "to learn to play the piano". We could be more specific: "to learn to play the piano from tr...

Re: Modding Wishlist

Actually, what I really wanted to do is change the keyboard on the iPad version, to create an experimental custom keyboard layout.
I suspect you aren't releasing mods for the iPod though.
But could we do that with an Android tablet?

Re: Modding Wishlist

Is the Modding capability still available? I just installed v9 I can't find the referenced files in my mac library, and when I click the colors.xmi and ui.xml links, I get a blank screen in amazonaws.com I want to be able to change shape and color of the piano keys, colors of the notes, and position...

Re: Freestyle Mode, Note Labels, Ear Training

Do you check old threads, or should I start a new one? I'd like to follow up on the EAR TRAINING. What I envision is that Synthesia plays a short phrase or chord, then give the student a chance to imitate it, Implementation would be run two copies of the same sequence, falling notes "falling" but no...

Re: Longshot, I know, but support for alternate keyboard?

OK, W-H is out for now, but consider a linear isomorphic keyboard (all 12 notes have "equal" prominence vs current W/B 7/5 scheme) I'd recommend Roy Pertchik's tri-color scheme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkX4YMcGw7g (contact Roy for rights) On the iPad, you have 2 octaves (25 notes) which would...
