Why can I only play the highlighted keys?

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.

I can only play the white highlighted keys, the blacked out ones are played by synthesia. (see screenshot)
How can I change this?

Seems you have Synthesia keyboard as your input device. Go to Settings and choose your MIDI keyboard/digital piano as input device. If it's an 88 keys piano or keyboard, then you'll have all the 88 keys visible, if less, you'll have the number of keys your keyboard has.

If you want to play with pc keyboard you need to use the "schifting octave" buttons.
