Triplets support and metronome

Hello Nicholas and other users. I've long wanted to see more support for triplets. One question first, does Synthesia calculate the duration of triplets, like 2/3 for each note of the duration of a quarter note triplet? They seem to be displayed correctly as falling bars, but not on the sheet music ...

Re: Octave numbering

Don't know about this, sometimes less is more in these matters. I like some of the 3D suggestions in that link from jimhenry, especially the one with the acoustic piano.

Re: Skinning Synthesia - Skinbox v0.2

That you should mention Glade, is kind of a deja vu for me - last semester the teacher in my GUI course made us work with it. I never got the hang of it.

Re: A couple of suggestion for learning

I'm with you on this in general, I'd prefer to be able to use the piano as much as possible, and it has become harder for me to use the computer, because my computer and piano are on two different desks. However I don't see a need for a loop-all button since you can easily loop the whole song. I use...

Re: OT - Most important features of a note insertion program

Thank you, glad it finally worked. Spila = play, Vista XML = Save to XML and Þögn = Rest. Translation for the buttons, not wise to have them in Icelandic, when distributing internationally!

Re: OT - Most important features of a note insertion program

Probably need to have these files as well in the same folder as the rest of the code. That's what the compiler is complaining about in the error messages. http://theodorn.blog.is/users/28/theodorn/files/queue.java http://theodorn.blog.is/users/28/theodorn/files/queue.class Hope you enjoyed this prog...

Re: OT - Most important features of a note insertion program

Thanks Raymond. I think I know what the problem is. The code has to reside in C:\Java, in the folder Java immediately under the root, C. I got exactly the same error message as Stephen, when I ran it from C:\Java\stora. Here's the session from my command line, (hopefully) showing this. C:\Users\Andr...

Re: OT - Most important features of a note insertion program

I think you're right, first all my code was just in one folder, but when I needed to put it in subfolders, as in this assignment, things started to go wrong. That is, new things started to go wrong, the old things kept going wrong. :D

Interval exercise

Starts off with fourths in the key of C, C and F notes, harmonic in the bass, melodic in the treble, then fifths, sixths, sevenths and octaves. Usually starting from the note C. A whole bar rest, then it changes to the key of F, starting from the note F. I started from the interval fourth because se...

Hi again, flash cards is the way to go. Made a small MIDI for interval practising, will post it in the MIDI club (that's the only place where you can attach them to posts.)

Re: OT - Most important features of a note insertion program

Thanks Stephen, sorry it didn't work (did you try compiling it again, with "javac {filename and path}?) Yes, I probably had to mess with the classpath/system environment variable, can't remember for sure because it was four months ago and on a different computer. C:\Java had to be in the classpath, ...

Re: OT - Most important features of a note insertion program

Just wanted to show you guys the final version (I think) of my Java assignment, for which I got 10 (A in the American system.) I only uploaded the Java file the first time, which is no good because there are a lot of helper files. Here's the whole package. http://theodorn.blog.is/users/28/theodorn/f...

Re: Whats the best music reading software for newbies?

I see, that's more complicated. Lypur (http://www.youtube.com/user/lypur) says it's the key to good sight reading to read sheet music by intervals, rather than individual notes. Also to hear the intervals in your head, notice how they sound. You probably know all about Lypur, think I saw you on his ...

Re: Whats the best music reading software for newbies?

I sometimes use Notation Composer to practise my sight reading. However it has no interactivity like Synthesia, the rhythm mode - song keeps progressing at an adjustable speed, with a metronome of course. Don't know what kind of key and note drills you're after, but they're probably not hard to get ...

Re: My Grandfather's Clock

Thank you jimhenry, that was a nice version. Seemed slower than the Gilbert de Benedetti's version, maybe it wasn't but just played more smoothly. I started long time ago playing the song in Synthesia, but for most of the time up to making the performance video, I practised it with plain paper sheet...

Re: My Grandfather's Clock

Thanks kiwi. Do you mean the staccatos are too short, or shouldn't I play staccatos in this piece at all? If you look at the sheet at the Gmajor music website, you'll see you're supposed to play staccato to give the piece that clock-like feel. However it can well be that I'm playing quarter note sta...

The star rating system - a question

Hi, how is the system for the stars we get at the feature requests page? Can we only give three stars to each requested feature? I wanted to use all my stars on triplets, but if I can't then so be it!
