Re: 10 Preview r2840 - Quality of Life 3

This is a consequence of the technology that adds a gap between consecutive notes (see this video at 2:50), but I agree the behavior is a little strange. A workaround today would be to adjust the "Gameplay.ForcedBreakBetweenNotes" advanced setting down to 0. That would make consecutive notes look l...

Re: 10 Preview r2840 - Quality of Life 3

There is a bug when displaying multiple fast notes, they don't show as played on the virtual keyboard but they do show if you pause at one of those notes individually Here is a video of it http://youtu.be/wqKyhxiCcXw Also even though no black circle behind the notes makes it look professional and fa...

Re: 10 Preview r2700 - Quality of Life 2

OMG ok i don't know what you did but the bug where synthesia's thread blocked and had no sound when i played awoken is gone now, wohoo, thank you! Also will seeing the key signature while playing a song be available in the next iteration of the quality of life? Looking great so far, keep up the good...

Re: 10 Preview r2680 - Quality of Life 1

MIDI can be a funny thing. I have situations where my Midisport 4x4 works and my Emu Xmidi does not. Not in Synthesia but in other, more demanding applications. Not saying the MIDI cable is your problem. Just saying you are more at risk for strange MIDI problems with those "no name" cables. Well i ...

Re: 10 Preview r2680 - Quality of Life 1

I would agree with you 100% if it didn't work perfectly on other versions on synthesia, it only does it with this current version and only that song(might be other songs i haven't tested too).

Re: 10 Preview r2680 - Quality of Life 1

!!! You are absolute right! I totally forgot, sorry. Sheesh, has it really only been two years since 0.8.2 was replaced? It feels like it's been forever. I am still hoping to bring that back. This has waited too long now. Thanks for reminding me. I've been hesitating on adding anything else to the ...

Re: 10 Preview r2680 - Quality of Life 1

Hmm, is this something that was in Synthesia before? I don't remember the key showing anywhere outside of the sheet music before. It's something I have plans to add eventually, but I didn't think I took anything away. Yes, it was present in synthesia 0.8.2 as shown here and has been gone ever since...

Re: 10 Preview r2680 - Quality of Life 1

Ok, I have big issues with this version, i set it all up, opened a song and it plays back normally, i open up a different song and it doesn't make any sound, and then the previous song that has sound doesn't have sound either, I close synthesia and reopen it and now it says i have no output even tho...

Re: 10 Preview r2680 - Quality of Life 1

These are all amazing features but please tell me seeing the key signature while playing the song will be available again without having to enable sheets to check the key signature which isn't that useful anyway because the song might be in C major or A minor and the midi contains info on the specif...

Re: 10 Preview r2571 - Free Play

This is pretty cool, but how about adding some sort of record button for this that automatically creates a midi file in something like synthesia/freeplay folder and when you stop the recording the file is completed, would be helpful if you have an amazing improvisation and want to see it played back.

Note identification exercises feature

Hello there, I would like to have a customizable music sheet note identification feature like the one on musictheory.net integrated into synthesia, something like it shows you just the a random note or a combo of notes and you have to press the corresponding key on your midi keyboard, this would be ...

Re: Switch automatically between keyboard and synth

Hmm, How about this, you make the Microsoft GS wavable synth disable the moment one or more devices have been connected and reenable itself whenever ALL your devices have been disconnected, would that be possible ? Possibly an option to make it automatic or not, but i don't see any reason for the Mi...

Switch automatically between keyboard and synth

Re: Left handed, lefty, inverted keyboard

There is no such thing as a left handed or right handed pianist, dexterity should be developed equally in both hands, if possible purposely play it reversed just to balance them out, i know it feels great to play those easy chords in the right, but in the long run it will become very hard to do a gi...

Re: Individual Note Colouring.

Would be useful if you're already trained in those colors, but if you're not setting synthesia to show note names is the best way to go, i'm coming closer and closer to the point where i just take a glance at synthesia and i know what keys to press cause the notes are there.
