This only took about six lines of code across three files just now. It's inexcusable that color and instrument aren't saved between sessions. That fix will show up in the next 10.7 development preview.
Thanks a lot for that. The default green is nice but didn't fit the rest of my palette too well
That would complicate the UI a bit, to be sure. Two keyboards connected at once seems like a niche case... but allowing Synthesia to facilitate this kind of teaching sounds like the sort of thing that should be one of our aspirational goals.
Again, thanks for looking into it. I understand the concern about UI/UX, and I guess your "conservatism" is to thank for the clean UI we have after so many versions.
Hacking it in would be nice, but might create more problems: it might confuse users as to why the app behaves that way when it's not explicit.
I don't mind only choosing the main colour, as long as there is consistency throughout sessions (new channel colours are not randomized).
While searching for a fix to my colour-related issues, I've seen people who wanted to get rid of that color menu, not add more to it. (If you screen grab the notes/grey area it does stand out a bit and can hide information depending on resolution).
Have you thought about moving the colour option to the top-right menu containing key and note labels? This one could host more content. I'm counting 8 items in the other menus. If we could fully customize the colour of 8 different channels it would almost be too much already: there are not enough colour offers to have 8 different options (which is not a criticism).
I understand that these are design choices and that I'm not the main target audience! So no hard feelings whatever you choose to do or not do!
Thanks again for the software and the time you put into looking at these requests!
