Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

... will there be an GUI interface that resembles "Windows Movie Maker" or "Audacity"? I think we've batted this idea around before. I have no idea how hard it would be to program, but I'd kinda like to see a scenario like tab stops in MS Word. There's be a timeline "ruler" at the top or bottom of ...

Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

Hey Nicholas. I haven't visited the forum in a while as I have decided that Synthesia won't really be the tool I need until the bookmark / section looping feature is done. I don't want to try to pin you down or anything, but I was wondering if you might have an idea of a general time frame for that ...

Re: Proper Teaching

I really hope for more great updates for Synthesia. I will support it by buying the learning pack, I hope it won't be too hard to buy it. I already have the learning pack. I can tell you it's super easy to buy. It only took a few minutes from the time I decided to make the purchase to the time I wa...

Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

Bookmark will be in Synthesia 0.6.7 Released, but Bookmark Repeat / Looping will be in Synthesia 0.6.8 Released. So since now we have to wait between 3 and 6 months until we can use it. Not necessarily. Because of the impressive amount of feedback about the looping I've been getting over the last f...

Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

This is a very interesting link about practing certain sections http://www.pianofundamentals.com/book/en/1.II.6 Yup. That's a very eloquent way of saying exactly what I've been getting at. I like options number 3 and 4 from Nicholas. To be honest, any of the options would work for me right now. The...

Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

That sounds great, TonE. My only addition would be that I think I'd want to the following: 4b. Define current as BC. Repeat current until score(current) > threshold score, then ... That's because, in your 10 part example, I wouldn't necessarily want to go all the way back to the beginning of the son...

Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

1. Bookmarks 2. For each "bookmark section" a separate (internal) scoring and a "scoring threshold", if you would reach this scoring threshold for that section, it would jump to the next section, then all the sections before that together, then again the next single section and so on. So we would n...

Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

I can understand how some sort of feedback may be useful to someone who is playing an instrument for the first time. It's good to have some idea of where you are. For me, though, it wouldn't be at all useful. I'm an experienced enough musician that I know when I'm getting it and when I'm not. I play...

Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

It sounds like for bookmarking, though, the main problem is the scoring associated with it. Why not make it practice mode only, and turn off scoring? I found practice mode scoring to be quite pointless anyway because you're hitting all the keys it tells you to while waiting for you to figure out th...

Re: Autosplitting of longer songs internally

Well, what can I say, Nicholas. You seem to be a genuinely good guy. I have run a nutrition message board for several years and, as you, have found most people to be good. There's just always that tiny minority that screws it up for everyone else. You seem to have it under control though. I suppose ...

Re: Autosplitting of longer songs internally

- Number of votes are based on duration you've been a member. If it were based on number of forum posts, there would be junk posts all over the place. If it were for Learning Pack users only, it would alienate free users (and Learning Pack-only features would probably be biased closer to the top). ...

Working? Since 09/19/2008 (that day he accepted the features for the next release) until today (02/08/2009) =143 days. Well, he *is* just 1 guy... and he's working on many features, some of which I'm sure will take weeks (or even months) worth of full time coding. As I understand it, this is still ...

Re: Autosplitting of longer songs internally

When I first saw the voting section (right after I bought Synthesia back in late December) I thought "it sure would be easy to get the options a person wanted by registering multiple user names." Heck, even if the voting registration took your IP address into account, you could just use a proxy serv...

Re: Autosplitting of longer songs internally

...it seems like bookmarks could get almost everything you were looking for, without any extra (development) effort on top of vanilla bookmarks. Finding gaps (or the analysis for "interesting" points) would be cool, but manually-placed bookmarks aren't a bad fall-back... At the risk of being a pest...

Re: Proper Teaching

ZoedVega, I'm sure Nicholas appreciates your input, as I have learned from this board that he's a far more patient person than I am. Giftlady hit the nail on the head, though. You're terribly crass for someone who has obviously not paid the extremely humble asking price of $16 for the game, and even...

Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

Never apologize for spending time with your family. Nothing is more important... and certainly not some software package you work on as a hobby. You'll get no guilt trip from me.

Good to have you back, and glad you enjoyed yourself.

Max.

Re: Practicing certain sections in practice mode

Brand new here. I just bought version 0.6.5 yesterday. First, let me say this is a fine piece of work you've created here. It's very intuitive, well thought out and has an extremely polished GUI. There's no doubt you've shunned countless hours with your family and friends to produce this. It's worth...
