Hello! :D I am a simple pianist and midi piano creator. When or how they can put a button to activate deactivate "Pedal Sustein" or the 3 pedals of a Piano and if a quick access automation could be created. And does anyone know how to remove or if they will place activate or remove the lines that divide the background notes, it would be useful when you want to put some background or background video when recording synthesia and thus you would only see the notes fall and not the lines, just for that.

Do you want to prevent Synthesia from sending Pedal messages? In Synthesia, go to Settings, then Advanced. Scroll down to the section called MIDI Data and turn off the switch for "Pedal Messages".

To turn off the horizontal measure lines: On the falling notes screen, click on the gear icon and turn off the switch for "Measure Lines".

To remove the vertical lines, you can create a customized colors.xml. Take a look at the following post to get started: Getting Started with Modding Synthesia. Once you have put a copy of colors.xml in the Synthesia data folder, open colors.xml in a text editor, find the following items:

Code: Select all

<color id="fallingNoteGuide" rgb="90, 90, 90" />
<color id="fallingNoteGuideAlt" rgb="60, 60, 60" />
and change them to the following:

Code: Select all

<color id="fallingNoteGuide" rgb="0, 0, 0, 0" />
<color id="fallingNoteGuideAlt" rgb="0, 0, 0, 0" />
As explained in the post, the exact items in colors.xml might change when a new version of Synthesia is released. Each time you update Synthesia, you will need to get a fresh version of the default colors.xml that matches the version of Synthesia, then modify it again to make your desired changes. (If you don't, Synthesia might show error messages about items names that are missing.)

I didn't mean to prevent synthesia from sending messages from the pedal!
I mean that there are midi files that have a sustein pedal activated and each note its length is short and despite this a sound of the note of a sustein pedal is maintained without the need to lengthen the notes when editing the midi.. But I would like you to Synthesia could implement the 3 pedals or just the activated sustein pedal to be able to equally enjoy those midis where you only put little dots of notes and prevent the notes that are not lengthened from being heard cut off.
It would also be great if they could put some kind of automation on the colors of the notes in each hand in the case of midi file sequences where they have only 1 channel since in general, to make it look blue and green, these are separated by 2 channels and when there is only 1 channel, all the notes are all green. They should put in synthesis a button that activates the view for 1-channel midis for midi files with a single channel and it reflects blue and green despite the midi file being played having only 1 channel. It would be great to put on my channel a preview of what I will upload without having to upload only a preview in 1 video with the preview of a song in fl studio.

Sorry I misunderstood before. I think I understand now: You sometimes play MIDI files with very short notes in Synthesia's "Watch and Listen" mode. You would like Synthesia to have an on-screen button you can click or a keyboard shortcut key you can press to send a sustain pedal message on all 16 channels so the short notes will sound longer.

Take a look at Support > Splitting the piano part. Does that do what you want?

Si! :D Exactamente eso mismo. Que haya 3 pedales en synthesia o opción donde permita sustein apesar de la logitud de las n otas sea corta. Eso me permitirá en cada edición tener cierta tipo de perspectiva de la canción y yo hago arreglos de canciones que durán 2, 3, 4 minutos y necesito escuchar con su envolvencia
