Change MIDI channel/voice of metronome?

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 have Ringway MP8820 (almost generic, low budget digital piano) that has 16 voices available of all the midi instruments.

The problem is that I cannot play the Synthesia metronome through it, even though the piano has a built-in metronome, but I don't know if it's matched to the corresponding MIDI instrument. I guess Synthesia uses the MIDI drum kit for the metronome and this piano doesn't have one. Only the built-in metronome.

Is there a way to change and play with the values used by Synthesia to send the metronome to the output to see if I can find the ones that are used by the builtin metronome?

Hi, I also wanted to adjust my metronome - I had a read of this...viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7803&p=40619#p40619 and I set my metronome to use the same voice as my keyboard, but set to two of the higher keys that I don't use.

Hope this helps

Yeah, like miek mentioned, on the desktop versions of Synthesia you can use the configuration window (hold your Shift key while launching the app) to tinker with the metronome. You can change the channel it uses and which MIDI note values it sends.
