Re: Piano-LED-Visualizer and Synthesia on android

As long as your Android device supports the "Android M MIDI" feature, you can connect to Bluetooth devices by following these instructions.

Re: Bug in a song

This will get much better as we approach Synthesia 11. Sorry for the trouble in the meantime. (Triplets aren't supported yet.)

Re: Missing cursor bar in score mode

Thanks for the detailed explanation! I was able to reproduce the problem and fix it. It'll be in the upcoming Synthesia 10.7 dev preview. (That should hit relatively soon. Sometime next week hopefully.)

Re: Free Play Metronome

You're right: adding a couple new "styles" to the list that are just simple metronome ticks is probably the most expedient solution. This is a bit of a coincidence: I've been working on a new, simple recording feature for the Free Play screen. When you press the new record button, most of the other ...

Re: One octave up or down

Not in Synthesia. We've got a few tools for hiding notes and splitting parts (if all the notes for both hands happen to belong to the same part), but for this kind of fix, you'll probably need to use a MIDI editor.

Re: .synthesia files on Android

It should, so long as the .synthesia files are in the same folder as the MIDI files.

How are you copying them over to your Android device?

Re: Bug with the "pace encrytion"

If the time signature is showing up incorrectly in the MIDI version of the song, it sounds like the song isn't being exported by the software correctly.

Re: Sustain Control Acting Strange

Hmm, strange. Did you happen to change/update your version of Synthesia during the switch-over? You may be able to work around the problem (if the songs you play are exclusively piano parts with no other instruments) by choosing your new CLP-675 from the Music Output list on the Settings screen and ...

Re: Missing cursor bar in score mode

There is a (slightly) newer version of 10.6 available. If you download it again, it should say 10.6.5425. Does the problem still happen there?

If so, does it always happen? Or only sometimes? (I wasn't able to spot the problem, but we did fix a couple sheet bugs between 5383 and 5425.) Thanks!

Re: Synthesia not accepting more than 2 keys at a time

That is very strange that it's sending both! There... isn't any reason for it to send an "All Notes Off" if it can track the regular "Note Off" messages. The good news is MIDI-OX is a great tool for this kind of filtering . Actually, the "MIDI Filter" window may be even easier than the "Data Filter"...

Re: Android crash - The 'scores' data file couldn't be loaded: Error parsing element attribute

Sorry for the trouble. Deleting the file is the only workaround for now. The 10.9 update is going to be focused on migrating over to something less prone to corruption. Files are fraught with peril . If you check the "What to do?" paragraph near the end of that article, I've decided on exactly that ...

Re: Synthesia not accepting more than 2 keys at a time

(The MIDI-OX image link didn't seem to make it through. That would be useful to see!) I'm guessing your PM694 is doing this as a way to work around very limited memory. After you release the third note, is there still a regular Note Off sent too? Or is the All Notes Off the only message sent? Intern...

Re: Yamaha Silent pianos

I couldn't quite confirm from the photos that those were actually MIDI cables. (It's strange that the pedal has its own MIDI cable. That isn't typical. I wonder if they just happen to be using MIDI's 5-pin DIN connector but have it wired in a different way. It could be worth an experiment with a MID...

Re: can Roland Sound Canvas VA be used

Usually it should be enough to enable IAC Driver on your Mac, choose that as an output device in Synthesia, and then choose it as an input device in whichever app is connected to your Sound Canvas. That should send all 16 channels automatically. As for how those channels get mapped to the correct in...

Re: MIDI note colours

For a MIDI song, sure, just change the colors based on the channels, like step #5 in this guide . In Free Play, only a single color can be picked for (usually) Channel 1. Otherwise, I'd like to hear more about your "incoming MIDI streams from external MIDI devices" scenario. Which types of devices? ...

Re: Yamaha Silent pianos

(Sorry for the wait; I've been recovering from the flu.)

If there isn't some digital output (MIDI or USB), I'm afraid Synthesia won't be able to use it. The best you'll be able to get is using the "Watch and Listen Only" mode in the app while you follow along separately on the keyboard. Sorry!

Re: Synthesia not accepting more than 2 keys at a time

Which keyboard are you using? Is the "All Notes Off" coming from the keyboard or from Synthesia?
