Re: How far can I get with synthesia? Difficulties with read

Sight reading even with synthesia is a process that can up to 5 years to properly being able to instantly play simple songs(hard songs can take wayy more years). Right now i guess i could say i can sight read very simple pieces instantly on synthesia at about 80-90% speed with both hands together, a...

Re: How far can I get with synthesia? Difficulties with read

I have been learning with synthesia for about 3 years and here is what i learned. If you are just starting off, even one hand will seem a challenge let along two, at 8 months you should pick a song as simple as humanly possible and follow this pattern - play it with your right and left hands separat...

Re: Synthesia Piano Multiplayer

If I may add my own idea and opinion, Multiplayer on music playing for two hands might be a bit of a bad idea if the pianos are in one location. It might be better to just take turns or just not worry about sync at all. Besides, Synthesia does have a scoring system. :) But what could be cool (in my...

Re: 10 Preview r3209, r3215 - Custom Hand Assignments

About the custom hand splitting, would it be possible to make it so i can simultaneously edit both tracks of a song that was already split into two hands but some right notes go to the left and some left go to the right, i find it very cumbersome to edit them separately as i would be constantly unce...

Re: 10 Preview r3209, r3215 - Custom Hand Assignments

Although i think the flat note look is okay, maybe it should be an option? I still kinda prefer the old ones but it's probably cause i'm used to them. Do you think it would be possible to make the keyboard labels a circle? The rectangles are okay and they help a LOT with eye strain but they're kinda...

Re: 10 Preview r3209 - Custom Hand Assignments

A better solution is still coming in 10.1! Although... if it's a health thing, adding an advanced option like you suggested would only take a few minutes. I'll try to do that for the next preview. Omg thank you so much for this, you have no idea how much it helps! And thank you for all your hard wo...

Re: 10 Preview r3209 - Custom Hand Assignments

Well i must say, the hand splitting feature looks amazing, way better than i expected, great job! How is the data for the hand splitting saved? like for example if i reinstall windows, will i need all the save data from the data folder to not lose all my track splitting? Will the option to save the ...

This may be a silly question but did you manage to eliminate the note names borders/background legibility issue?

Re: A suggestion about colors and harmony

These patent trolls are getting more and more ridiculous, what's next, patenting general color association?

Does the patent specify particular colors, or assigning any color to a tone is an infringement? Maybe you can use different colors than specified in the patent.

Re: Sheet Music

I think he means he wants to just drop any pdf file of sheet music and it will read it automatically and display as a midi file. Alas such a feature will never be possible, the only software i found that does a very good job at converting pdf to midi is "pdf to music pro" but even with that i have t...

Re: Song options: Ignore note volume

I don't think an auto note average is a great idea, some pieces have specific very quiet and very loud parts o the song for musical effect, messing with that would ruin the music.

Maybe just a volume slider for each channel?

Re: Any teacher willing to provide fingering suggestions?

Here are a few basic rules to figuring out fingering. 1. Practice scales and arpeggios until your fingers bleed, there's a reason why teachers make you do this and it's because it makes you know the fingering automatically for many situations. 2. Always think of how you can play the current section ...

Re: How should I use Synthesia to teach my children Piano?

I don't know what kind of piano experience you have but i would start with watching this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vphWgqbF-AM and either represent it to your kid or make them watch the video themselves. Besides that find out what all the level graded classical music there is for a beginner an...

Re: Turning off notes during loop section and more.

Hmm, i didn't know f5 can be used to hide the notes, so thank you for that, it's certainly exactly what i needed. As far as dynamic difficulty, a very basic implementation would be, edit 3 midi files. music_1 music_2 music_3 the number at the end signifying layers, 1 full layer, 2 stripped a bit and...

Turning off notes during loop section and more.

Hello everybody! I have been using synthesia for about 2 years now and I've noticed I've become quite dependent on it to play any song. I have the couple of songs I learned in the beginning but the memorization of new ones hasn't progressed and even the memory of the old ones is fading. So i have a ...

Re: Newbie trying to create a midi

If the notes have the correct length how do you know they are staccatos? I'm not familiar with any other free software's better than musescore, personally i use sibelius 7 since it's wayyy better than any other notation software out there. If you can't afford it currently there is the option of "bor...

Re: Newbie trying to create a midi

I tried muse before but the loads of bugs and lack of features really bugged me and made it impossible to edit complicated sheets. As far as marking notes staccato in the 4th beat for no reason and exporting at a different beat sounds like software bugs to me since the software is still in beta or a...
