Re: Are there 88 Key Pianos that Light Up with Synthesia ?

Hi guys, would like to comment - not about lit-up keys or keyboards - but still related to the discussion. In the first post there is a quote from this website, that the Yamaha DGX-650 has fully-weighted keys like a real piano. That is a rather questionable statement. The DGX-6x0 line has an action ...

Re: Change in digital piano sound when synthesia running?

Lester, does Synthesia change the voice on your AP-250. I have a Casio PX-5S and Synthesia always changed the voice, but then I found out I could filter out program and control changes. I don't know how the settings are changed on the Celvianos, but you should check if possible, if the voice has bee...

Re: Why can I only play the highlighted keys?

Seems you have Synthesia keyboard as your input device. Go to Settings and choose your MIDI keyboard/digital piano as input device. If it's an 88 keys piano or keyboard, then you'll have all the 88 keys visible, if less, you'll have the number of keys your keyboard has.

Re: 10 Preview r2700 - Quality of Life 2

Synthesia r2700 doesn't run as smooth as r2680. Like a TV with too low frequency. So I will stick to r2680. My laptop is pretty old, I have to mention that. Intel dual core 1.60 GHz with 2 GB RAM.

Re: How to setup MIDI-OX, LoopBe1 and Synthesia

Update It suits me best to have the piano as input and output, but turn the volume down to 50-60%. That way I can play one track, and have Synthesia send the other to my piano, while muting the track played by me in Synthesia. I only have to remember to choose the right voice on the channel of the ...

Re: How to setup MIDI-OX, LoopBe1 and Synthesia

Thank you, Nicholas. I've exactly created infinite MIDI loops, and LoopBe warned me about it, and as you say muted itself. I can of course mute the track I'm playing in Synthesia, somehow forgot that simple fact.

Re: How to setup MIDI-OX, LoopBe1 and Synthesia

I know now that I cannot have Casio USB-MIDI as input in both MIDI-Ox and Synthesia, it cannot be shared. Problem is, when I remove the Casio of the Input list in MIDI-Ox, Synthesia can read from it alright, but it doesn't seem to send information back to LoopBe1, and therefore LoopBe1 is not sendin...

How to setup MIDI-OX, LoopBe1 and Synthesia

This is how I did it, but MIDI-Ox seems to block Synthesia's way to my piano, as input. I've tried a few different ways, but I either get the echo or the wrong voices are played, like strings or finger bass (I think) instead of piano. Any suggestions?

Re: Disabling MIDI echo

I can't see that there's any note disabling feature in CoolSoft. My setup now has the piano only as MIDI Input (from Synthesia's point of view) and the MIDI output is as I said Coolsoft. The reason I set things up this way, is so I can depend on my laptop for the sound of the track I'm not playing. ...

Disabling MIDI echo

Is there anyway to prevent MIDI In notes on from being echoed to the MIDI Out device? I play my piano with Synthesia open, and it echoes the current MIDI Out device, which is Coolsoft or Microsoft WaveSynth, happens with both of them. This occurs in all menus of Synthesia, not only with a song open ...

Re: copy & paste finger hints?

Great way to automate the finger hint editing process, thanks for sharing.

I don't know how one can move the numbers from the line below to the line above, that way, as...

Two finger numbers

Hi, this is not one of those April Fool's Day questions, though it may sound like one. ;) Has the idea ever come up to have two finger numbers on one note? It may prove useful in the following cases. When you're playing quickly from a black key to a white one, common in blues, not necessarily a grac...

Re: MIDI input is echoed to MS Wavetable Synth

Your theory is not an unlikely explanation, I don't know what caused it. I do know, that it matters on which channels the tracks of the MIDI file are set. My piano has voices on channels 1 - 4. If a track of an incoming MIDI is residing on channel 1, it will be played with the voice of channel 1, a ...

Re: MIDI input is echoed to MS Wavetable Synth

Update I downloaded the latest development version, and set Local Control to OFF on my piano (Casio PX-5S.) That seems to have solved the issue. Did you make any changes to the MIDI handling section of Synthesia's code? I thought I had tried to set Local Control OFF, and then it didn't work. Do you...

MIDI input is echoed to MS Wavetable Synth

I'm having a huge problem using my piano as a MIDI out device in Synthesia. Everytime I enable MIDI out, everything I play on the piano is echoed in Synthesia, as it seems, by the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth, even though the Microsoft Synth is turned off as an output device. I can clearly hear it, ...
