Re: Notes appear an octave too high

EDIT. Think I've found a workaround, by setting all zones to GrPnoConcert, thereby forcing channels 1-4 to choose Grand Piano. Removed the Cakewalk file, not sure of the copyright. The guys at the PX-5S Facebook group say the file is only meant for Cakewalk.

Re: Notes appear an octave too high

A new problem, Synthesia won't play anything. I can play myself, but when choosing Watch And Listen Only - no sound. Same when playing one track, setting the other to Played by Synthesia. Don't know what happened, I've reviewed the settings over and over again. Edit This might be of interest. I logg...

Will the sheet music display not be visible in free play mode?

Re: Notes appear an octave too high

I set up the LoopBe + MIDI-OX and filtered out Bank Select MSB and LSB. Seems to do the job, thanks. The similar option in Synthesia stopped it from changing to GM Piano 1, but the program kept layering strings over the piano voice. Ran the new setup (according to your instructions in another thread...

Re: Notes appear an octave too high

MIDI-OX denies Synthesia access to my piano. So far I've found out that Bank Select MSB and Bank Select LSB are the events that are the culprits. I forced Composer to always choose (ctrl0, ctrl32) = (64,0) = (MSB,LSB). Can I do something similar in Synthesia, force it to always set the most and leas...

Re: Notes appear an octave too high

Thank you Nicholas, not sure if I'll try it out though, and just go back to the good old paper sheets! It seems my new piano is more unpredictable in MIDI connections, than the old one, the Yamaha P85, not just with Synthesia, also with Notation Composer as mentioned earlier. Maybe by trying to make...

Re: Notes appear an octave too high

Update to the problem (for the worse, unfortunately.) Synthesia has not entirely stopped messing with my piano. It looks like the same voice is on, as the one I had set the piano to and is the default setting, ConcertGrandPiano. However for some reasons Synthesia decided to layer the piano with stri...

Re: Notes appear an octave too high

Just wanted to let you know, that it seems I solved the problem by unchecking MIDI.AllowProgramChange in the configurator.

Re: Notes appear an octave too high

Yes, Local Off solved the echo problem. However the volume is much lower that way, which I can't afford to let happen as the internal sound engine of the PX-5S isn't that powerful. I play through headphones, the PX-5S has no internal speakers. And Merry Christmas to you and other fellow Synthesia us...

Re: Notes appear an octave too high

Thank you Nicholas. I was using version listed as 9.0.2482 (I think) then I downloaded the latest development version, which identifies itself as 9.0.2478. Just copied the dev over the existing Synthesia.exe, isn't that the way to do it by the way?

Re: Notes appear an octave too high

It was set to 88 keys. This has been very strange, at one time the notes were shifted up an octave - that is to say, the keys that become grey on the Synthesia keybed, reflecting which notes you are pressing - at the next time the song just progressed, even though it was set to the waiting mode. At ...

Notes appear an octave too high

Now there's a ghost in my system, all notes are shown an octave too high. What can be wrong? This does not happen with another MIDI software I have, Notation Composer.

Re: how to set "Play by Synthesia using Computer"?

You have to choose Settings , in the first window that apperars after you start Synthesia. Under Music Output , you should find something called Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth if your operating system is Windows. Make sure it's Enabled. Then you should see one more device listed as a possible output d...

Re: Synthesia changing my DP's tone

Just tried setting Local Control to Off. No sound from the track Synthesia was supposed to play, the bass track in this case. It didn't seem to matter whether Microsoft Synth was set as the extra music output or not. I always had Casio USB-MIDI set as output, so I either had one (Casio) or two (Casi...

Re: Synthesia changing my DP's tone

I can't see a Local On/Off option, neither as a button nor an option in the operating system (so-called) of the piano. However there is a Panel Lock option. It's on by default but by setting it to off I managed to prevent Synthesia from changing any settings. Actually that also means locking the pia...

Re: Synthesia changing my DP's tone

Thank you jimhenry. I'm not home right now, but I'll see if I can play with the settings of the piano, when I get home. I don't completely understand though, what Local off means. Let me know if it means what I think it means (next paragraph.) Does it mean that the local sounds/tones/voices of the p...

Re: Synthesia changing my DP's tone

A late update on the subject. I tried the "Filtering out" option. All it did was changing the sound to some bass guitar sound, but Concert Grand was still the option on my piano. That is, Synthesia did not change the tone on the piano, but played a different tone than the one chosen on the piano.

Re: Keep playing while dragging window

I hadn't noticed it before, that the song doesn't pick up at the time you started dragging, but at the time you started dragging, plus the time it took to move the window. At least we discovered a small bug.

Keep playing while dragging window

Let me first say that it's a great option being able to drag and resize the window. I'm using it to insert finger numbers to a song I'm practising (the popular Moon River ) and I put the finger numbers in according to a tutorial video of the song. Then I noticed that the song stopped playing while d...

Re: Music staff position indicator line

Agree with this proposal. Think I even suggested exactly this before the blue frame came about. Another option would be to make the notes themselves light up, not the background.
