Key sensitivity and volume at ending of songs

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 am currently playing on a Yamaha DGX-660B connected through USB to a computer on a win10 laptop on the newest synthesia version.
The issue im struggling with is that the keys become less sensitive during playtime, especially at the end of the song. Its as if I need to push harder and more pronounced for it to register me playing a note.

Does anyone know what I have to do to fix this issue?

Best Regards

That... is very strange. I don't recall ever hearing any problem like this before. It sounds more like a hardware problem than anything else. Synthesia will register a note as being hit correctly no matter the incoming MIDI "velocity", so if it's getting worse over time, it sounds like something is happening with the keyboard.

Does the sensitivity reset when you restart the song? Or did you mean it gets worse during the entire play session?
