Using a different piano output with keyboards

Trouble with Synthesia, your keyboard, or adapter? Think you found a bug?
When describing problems, always mention your OS and game version (shown at the bottom of the title screen).

  • If your keyboard has USB or MIDI ports, there is a tremendously high chance (>99%) it will work with Synthesia. See what you'll need on the keyboards page.
  • If you have a Logitech webcam and can't get your keyboard/adapter to work, see this post.

To be brief: When using Synthesia with my workstation keyboard (which naturally has hundreds of sounds), it doesn't output the piano sound that I necessarily want.

For example, it will play the sound assigned to "Acoustic Grand Piano" on my keyboard, but in fact, I want the sound "Studio Grand Piano" (which is the default anyway). This is mostly personal preference, but I've also noticed some weird distortion issues mostly when previewing songs. I have a Casio wk7600.

This option will let you control the instruments yourself: Settings --> Advanced --> Instrument Change Messages --> Filtered-out.

That way Synthesia won't interfere with anything you've set your keyboard to.

Hey, thanks. It's not perfect, but it gets the job done.
