Hi, I am new on Synthesia and I have a problem. When I import a midi file, for example Whiter shade of pale, I see a lot of instruments (see pic 1). When I play the song I see all the keys from the instruments (see pic 2). Can I change this, so that I only see the notes for my left and right hand, which I will play on my keyboard.
Who can help me with this. I would be very happy with a solution.
Greetz,
Hans

We have a guide for exactly this question.

Thank you Nicholas for your quick reply. I have already seen the guide, but it is still difficult for me. On pic 1 I set the rock organ to my left hand and the acoustic piano to the right hand. On pic 2 I see lines in 4 colours, where I hat expect 2 colours now: one for left hand and one for right hand. What am I doing wrong?

Now that you've assigned hands, just choose the "Auto Color" button at the lower-right corner of the part settings screen (shown in step #10) to hide all the other tracks.

Alternatively you could set each of their colors to the gray tile with a red X, like it shows in step #5 of the same guide.
