Synthesia 10.4 does not recognize keyboard

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 just updated Synthesia from 10.3 to 10.4 and it stopped recognizing my USB keyboard. I deleted Synthesia, installed 10.3 and this version recognizes the keyboard just fine.

OS: Windows 10
Keyboard: Korg PA300

With 10.4, does it show up if you do the following:

1. Hold your Shift key while launching Synthesia (to open the configuration window).
2. Find the "Midi.UseWinRTMidi" entry in the Setting drop-down box.
3. Remove the check mark from the "Value" box.

(Then close the configuration window and start Synthesia 10.4 normally.)
