Wow! Thanks for that explanation.

It is such a fight to even understand what the idea is with these things.

Hi Nicholas!
I can't seem to find the +/- buttons for the sheet music.

To have the sheet music button appear (to the left of the metronome button), you have to assign at least one hand (step #4 in this guide).

After that, the +/- size buttons will appear right in the sheet area (at the right) when the song is paused.

Missed that detail.
Thanks! Will give it a try now. I won't be able to go to bed until I do! :)

-edit
Cool!
This should make it easier to go into full sheet music mode? "blush"

I still have a problem! I did what you suggested and turned off V-Sync in both the Synthesia settings and my GPU's settings. Then Synthesia runs at about 200 frames and the notes get very blurry.
When I turn back the GPU setting, Synthesia runs at 120 frames but it stutters every few seconds. And the notes still appear with a blurry outline.

Do you think we will see multiple lines of notation before next year? Just curious.

Hmm, I'm curious what you mean. Synthesia is kind of a best-case for v-sync being disabled because there is no horizontal movement (so tearing is essentially invisible). And usually a higher frame rate appears smoother. What sort of display hardware are you using? What is your monitor's refresh rate?

I try not to give (always wrong) release dates, but seeing as the very next preview is adding multiple lines and that I'm rather deep into the development of that preview... it's probably safe to report it will happen before the end of the year. :D

I really hope I don't end up being wrong about that. For both my sake and all of yours! :lol:

(That said, there are rumblings that my wife and I might be moving before the end of the year. My Synthesia "office" lives in my house, so moving has a tendency to disrupt development a bit. Our current home tapers down in the back at a 45° slope into a sort of wooded gulch so there isn't any backyard to speak of. And as it turns out, 1½ year old toddlers need a little more than zero space to run around.)

Nothing like a fenced in space for the kiddies :D

Is there a way to subscribe to be notified when the next preview is posted?

If you've got a news/RSS reader of any kind, the Development Updates - New Topics feed is probably the best way to zero-in on just this kind of news. It only updates when a new topic is started in this sub-forum and I'm the only one allowed to post new topics in this section. And for just over 10 years now, I haven't missed reporting a major preview as a new topic here. :D

For examples of what you might be able to expect in your feed, the Previous Updates section shows everything going all the way back to 2007. If you don't have a news reader, there are plenty of free services out there that will turn an RSS update into an email for you. I know that IFTTT can do it but there are probably hundreds of others.

Otherwise, following @SynthesiaDev (and optionally @Synthesia) at Twitter is a close second. That place still isn't 100% habit for me though, so things slip the cracks every once in a while.
