I dunno, "Happy Pat drum" sounds pretty cool. :lol: None of my test keyboards have drum pads on them. Maybe I should grab that one. ;)

Progress Update!

September 2019:
  • Cared for an infant.
  • Released Synthesia 10.6 after an iOS update forced my hand a little early.
Simple recording and sheet music down stems(!) are coming next time.

"And he said there'd be down stems and there was much commotion in the streets and folk from near and far congregated in the market places."

From the book Nicholas, chapter 10.

Wow, has it really been a year since the last update here? :shock: :oops:

Progress Update!

In any event, down stems are (finally) starting to shape up:

For 10.7, their appearance is going to be just about as naive as you can imagine by using the "above/below the middle staff line" rule. Once the beam revamp comes along (allowing beams between more than two notes!) in a little while, that scheme will become a bit more nuanced. Behind Bars has a lot to say about stems and I'm hoping to incorporate as much of that actionable advice as possible.

Thanks for the update. Whenever I think this has become quiet for good, there's a sign of life. Keep it going, please! :)

Hi,
I noticed the moving notes "maybe reffered at the pop notes" on the changelog are finally gone with the 10,7 release!
in the changelog it stated since 10,5 but i have popped notes on 10,5.
Also i have noticed Synthesia load instantly even with the titanic soundfont (266mb) but with virtual midi synth it took 10 secondes so congrats again Nicholas!
Feature request: Drum notation support for sheet music :)

What's a "popped note"? Do you mean when they would suddenly appear (again) while rewinding the song? That should have been fixed in 10.6. (And yes, it was a relief when they finally were! They bothered me a lot.) :lol:

I am making no promises on that one! Synthesia is for piano! ;)

If you spend a few minutes looking at the things that are specific to drum notation, I think you will be able to promise that drum notation support for sheet music will not be added to Synthesia. ;)
