Hi! Friendz... call me an 'Illiterate' for not understanding the Programmer's Language coz i ddnt understand a lot of what u guys were saying... Wud like to share some ideas with u guyz to enhance Synthesia (if u guyz think it'll)... Please read the whole thing and lemme know any part u guyz ddnt understand... just sharing my idea coz i'm really impressed with Synthesia. One day i hope to learn to read notes.
its gonna be hard for me to really explain it, but i'll try... (I'll use myself as the player)
# Game Mode
: I play one time from start to finish and the score I get is the one displayed on the Score Board. Which wud be the real 'Hall of Fame'...
: In this mode we can select Beginner's/Intermediate's/and-whoever-comes-next's Lessons.
This mode has 'Settings
' option... and in it...
: In this I can divide a song into 2 or 3 or 4 parts depending how I wanna learn it...
I choose the song 'Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do' and for me to learn it, I create loops in the beginning itself...
: Loop 1
: frm Do to Re / Loop 2
: frm Mi to Fa / Loop 3
: frm So to La / Loop 4
: frm Ti to Do... (Loops dont overlap...)
: Loop 1
: frm Do to Re / Loop 2
: frm Re to Fa / Loop 3
: frm Fa to La / Loop 4
: frm So to Do... (Loops r overlapping each other...)
: For example, D C B B+ A A+
... I'll b choosing the Threshold Grade of a Loop so as to enter the next loop. If i'm choosing 'B' as the Threshold Grade, i'll skip to the next loop as soon as the score related to tht Grade is reached. If i chose A+, unless and until i play the first loop perfect, it wont go into the next loop. The Training ends as soon as the score related to the Threshold Grade of the last Loop is reached. The Final Score wud b the average of the scores that i got by playing the loops. As the number of Loops and Replays increase, ofcourse the Average Score wud b low. The score wud b way down compared to the 'Game Mode' score but this Mode shud help me to perform well in the 'Game Mode'. (Training Mode and Game Mode shud hav diff Score Boards)(The only way to really get the highest score in Training Mode is to play it again in the Threshold Score of A+ and finish it in one shot...)
. If 'ON' it will show the Notations and according to the performance the Notes will turn Blue
. It's to help the me learn Notations and to perform better by seeing what mistakes I am doing while playing the song.
The whole notation starts in Black...
- If I don't hold down the key enough amount of time, tht note will turn BLUE
(think of someone who is not getting enough Oxygen)...
- If the key was held for the right amount of time showing GREEN
(Ecofriendly... everybody's happy)...
- If the key is held down for more time than it was needed, it'll turn RED
(like someone turning Red with anger)...
After checking the notes and the colors on it, I know how much amount of time is needed for a key and will hav a knowledge about the Notes... (Which i'm hoping to see coz i dont know anything abt reading notes... and i wanna learn it using Synthesia)
if ON... a) Numbering
: The finger numbers would b written on the tip of the Falling Notes.
: I choose what colour I want, from a palette, for each finger, and that specific color would be solid at the tip of the Falling Notes and fades into the color the I chose for the Falling Notes.
I feel like if we hav all these options, a lot of people wud b buying Synthesia to learn Piano frm the very basic. All these ideas came to me whn i tried playing a song and i was not able to play Left Hand at all. I definitely need basic training and i wanna learn it in the right way with the right fingering. Fingering is 'ON or Off' option coz some people dont care what finger they use and for them their aim is to play the song whichever finger they use. But i think if we know the which finger is supposed to go on a given Note, it'll help us to play piano without looking at the keyz... (same like typing on the keyboard...i've to look whn i type...
Sorry for the loooooooooooooooooooooong posting... I know tht "Rome cannot b built in a day"... Hope u guys will respond... take care my friendz...
