Re: Software keyboard won't recognize non-US keys (0.8.0 r11

Hi Nicholas! I'll wake this old thread up from its slumber. In the 10.0.3215 beta - and probably earlier, but I haven't used my computer keyboard as input for a while - if I enter the string awsedftgyhujkolpöä¨' into the keyboard mapping - in fact, if I just enter "ö" or "ä" into the string - and th...

Re: Synthesia 9

A song store with high-quality songs would make finding good songs that much easier!

When you buy a song: can it be used in all versions of Synthesia (Mac, PC, Ipad)?

It has ;) and I still think it would be a good idea.

Re: Synthesia for Ipad as a sheet music reading app

Hm, I gave Piascore a try, but it can't do 2). And SmartMusic isn't an Ipad app, and having a laptop is quite a bit more cumbersome. And as i can't find a demo version I don't know if it can do 2) and if it copes with a single voice or if it can manage multiple simultaneous voices for a choir. But y...

Synthesia for Ipad as a sheet music reading app

I started singing i a choir a few moths ago, but I'm still not very good at reading sheet music. I've been using Sweet Midi Player for Iphone to play back MIDI files where the voices are separated. By using a different instrument and volume for the tenor voice that I am singing I've been able to slo...

Re: 8.4 Preview r2193 - Smooth Scrolling Library

Hm, I would rather have it remember my position than have the smooth scrolling. I don't understand, why is it so hard to solve? Can't you just know what position your last chosen song had and center the list on that song when the song library reloads?

Re: 8.4 Preview r2014 - New Timeline, Looping

I agree with SunBlack, Synthesia should still automatically switch to the software keyboard and built-in MIDI if no other MIDI devices are connected. And when a MIDI device is connected it should use the same settings that you had setup when that MIDI device was connected last time. I.e. if the soft...

A *little* wide? I'm using a 24" display, and those rows have the most whitespace I've seen in my entire life :-) I would call it a usability problem.

Re: 8.4 Preview r1982 - More Progress

So, are you planning to do something about the too wide setting buttons and song library rows? :-)

The width you use in the new Learning pack screen would be good for the settings pages, and the song library rows shouldn't be that much wider that that either.

If I ... check "Use this device", and then go back, it still says that Synthesia Software keyboard is "Off". Instead of crashing when it can't open a device now, it just reverts to "Off"... though that shouldn't ever happen for the software keyboard. (And there should be some kind of helpful messag...

Re: 8.4 Preview r1957 - The Big One

It looks nice! But: playback using built-in MIDI doesn't work anymore for me, I can't hear any sound (Mac OS 10.6.8). Or rather, the Music devices settings don't get saved. If I go into Settings > Music devices > Music input > Synthesia Software keyboard and check "Use this device", and then go back...

  • New functionality: Sort by play count. (Well, it's new since 0.8.3 anyway...)
  • More convenient: No more popup menus. Changing the sort is a single click/tap like it ought to be.
Yay :-)

Re: Synthesia 0.8.4

How does something like this look for the title screen? 1. The Play button looks too much like a ordinary button, even though it is the most important one. I would have it in some other color (green?) and with a "play" triangle/forward arrow on it. 2. The "visit site" links: I'm not sure the forwar...

My two öre (or maybe eurocents): The new song library interface is Ipad-friendly and looks nice, but I think it is too limited compared to the old one. - Please put back the column headers. It enables the user to see immediately what the columns mean and how the list is sorted. Without headers it is...
