Re: 0.7.4 Preview r1015 (Windows-only)

AMD/ATI Radeon 5850. 3 Monitor setup. Left and right is 1024x1280. Center one is 1920x1200. Running Catalyst 10.8. Desktops are in extended mode. EyeFinity is not active. * Side monitors can render in 1024x1280 - that's cool. Also that you can specify which monitor to render on in options. Nicely. *...

Re: Questions regarding a piano, and arranges

depending on your location (and space for a piano) you can strike really good deals on a couple of year old digital pianos (pre or post usb). they usually offer superb quality compared to store prices today (by checking your ebay/craigslist).

Re: 0.7.4 Preview r1015 (Windows-only)

I'll try to make it render using any/all of three monitors tonight. If it can do this i'll be impressed (as the side monitors are 4x5 aspect ratio).

Re: A couple of bookmark suggestions

I think this relates to the feature "Press a key to listen to all tracks" from wherever you are. For example P for preview, it will temporarily set all tracks to played automatically, and keep playing until you release the button and it's back to where you left off.

Re: set all track settings button

There's an option in game options - to set default for all tracks - there are options for auto, not played, you play, played but hidden. It should save some time

Re: 0.7.4 Preview r1002

If it was acting that way with another card, I'm inclined to think it's your adapter that's at fault, especially since there are no controller or SysEx messages in the MIDI files you're using that could trigger the zone change on your keyboard (I know there's none of that stuff in my scale files). ...

Techniques and practice methods to decoordinate the hands

Please do share ideas and techniques for being able to "decouple" your hands - as required for most two-handed play. Here's one quote from a blog that should get things started: Luckily the left hand was pretty repetitive, so training it to be on auto pilot was not out of the question. I would work ...

Re: 0.7.4 Preview r1002

cairnz, could the zone switching thing be related to key signature messages? That's the only other thing I can think of, unless it's your MIDI interface that's actually being unruly and sending rogue messages. Key signatures are changing frequently in my scale MIDI files. Does the switch happen on ...

Re: What about... Yann Tiersen : 6 pièces pour Piano

I'm a relative beginner on piano, and i too like the Tiersen pieces very much - i cannot play most of it hands together though cause i can't (yet) make them do that different things - but the valse amelie i know every note for each hand - it's rather simple to memorize cause it's easy patterns and o...

Re: MIDI-file for La Noyée by Yann Tiersen

I've listened to it through my Kawai MP9000 - it sounds good, but i think it lacks a little in dynamics - do you have constant volume on all notes? I've searched a few youtube videos - and this one maybe shows best what i mean : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lORWT3Kctw

Re: 0.7.4 Preview r1002

It happened first time i loaded song library. I didn't have MIDI-OX active so i didn't get to see any output. As long as noone else is experiencing the same issue, it can be related to my piano being old or something? Also, it keeps adding that lower internal zone on some midis (including these scal...

Re: The Future of Synthesia

As long as you're projecting "from behind" so that your body doesn't cover half the screen because the projector is behind you :P Yeah, you should project from the other side, which also means your keyboard should be flat, not a piano, and not standing at the wall, but for example having enough spa...

Re: 0.7.4 Preview r1002

I had some problems in 997 that the opengl/directx change wouldn't be respected by the game, even though the options changed it.

I've tested swapping inputs now and that seemed to work fine for me.

(Piano still locked up though once on the song library)

Re: Scales and arpeggios MIDI files

Is there any reason why the order of the scales seem to be mixed up? (I'd be expecting C, Db, D, Eb, or something in that order)

Quick, someone put a holographic feature in the voting page. Just get a white rag/cloth and hang it over your keys, then buy a projector and project Synthesia on it.
