Lag between pressing a key and Synthesia reaction

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.

One of the users of my program, Miditzer, discovered that their Casio keyboard sent MIDI messages more quickly when they selected a non-velocity sensitive instrument like drawbar organ rather than a velocity sensitive instrument like piano. Worth looking at if you experience a lag between pressing a key a getting a reaction from Synthesia.
