  1. Thanks so much! I'll give it a go on Win 7 64bit.
  2. Sounds like exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for! I'd love to get a copy and see if I can get it working.
  3. Wonderful! I'll give it a go and see if it makes my transposing for Synthesia work properly now. I gave it a try with Tom Petty's song Good Enough. The midi generated by EOF wroked fine in Synthesia, as before, and as before some of the notes were below the range of my 61 key keyboard, so I opened it up in MuseScore and transposed everything up by two octaves. That worked, but now some of the notes from the Lead arrangement were above the range of my keyboard, so I tried to transpose just that arrangement back down to the original pitch and leave the rest up. When I did that, I started getti
  4. There's another product called Songs2See http://www.songs2see.com/index.php/en/ It supports digital piano and a few other instruments as well. Both Synthesia and Songs2See have free demo versions available, so you can easily test them out and see what you like. There are probably some other ones too that I haven't heard of. Songs to see is not as good you need a microphone to use it where as synthesia can use a usb cable for midi. Couldn't you use the realtone cable and connect it on the headphone output or the lineout or something of the piano? yea the reatone cable works for the gu

  6. Yeah, that's probably the better solution. I'll be sure to let you know!
  7. It does sound like a MIDI editor issue, which one are you using? If it helps, I could probably add an eof.cfg entry so that you can define how many octaves up to transpose the bass track for the musical MIDI file. It would default to 0, but you would then be able to manually edit the file while EOF is closed (it's text format) to indicate 2 octaves. Let me know if that works for you. Yeah, that would work, but I'd need it to work on both guitar and bass. I've been using a program called MuseScore to do my transposing, and when I asked for some help over on the Synthesia forum Nicholas suggest
  8. It works beautifully! I processed Rise Against - Swing Life Away once again, with Bass, Lead and Rhythm and the resulting MIDI had three parts visible in Synthesia, one being the bass arrangement and the other two being the lead and rhythm arrangements. Well done! The only problem I have now is that when I try to transpose the MIDI up by two octaves so that it fits into the range of my 61 key keyboard I end up with the individual notes all getting smeared together into infinitely long sustains, but I think that's my own failure in figuring out how to work the MIDI editor I'm using...
  9. Thanks for pursuing this! Being a raw beginner when it comes to midi files I think I've mistakenly assumed that Track and Channel both mean the same thing and it has caused some confusion when I try to get my point across. Like you said over there, I'd like to be able to have the whole bass arrangement show up as one hand-part in Synthesia, and then have the Rhythm or Lead show up as another hand-part, or maybe two hand-parts for each guitar arrangement. Having all those parts inside the same midi file would allow me to select which ones I wanted to play with my own hands, and Synthesia
  10. Yep, that sounds reasonable. Thanks again for all your efforts!
  11. Synthesia doesn't really mind. It can handle large numbers of channels, but it only lets you actually play two of them with your own hands, it just automates all the rest. I've continued working with Swing Life Away, tackling the lead arrangement now, and having some trouble when I try to combine the channels in MuseScore. I end up with stupidly long sustains and way more than 6 notes being played at once. While having each string on its own channel would possibly be useful for splitting the arrangement into 2 hands, the trouble I've been having when trying to combine them makes me think i
  12. Thanks so much for adding this feature! I finally got time to try it out, and yes, it works! I used Rise Against - Swing Life Away as a simple test case and tried converting just the Bass arrangement first to avoid over-complicating things. The midi file created by EOF was immediately readable by Synthesia, although being a bass arrangement, all the notes were way down past the left end of my 61 key keyboard. I used a free program called MuseScore to tweak the midi file into a more useful form for my setup. The first step was to transpose the whole thing up by two octaves to bring it int

  14. Thanks! I'm not too concerned about special techniques like bends, slides, vibrato, etc. As long as it can give me the basic notes and the correct timing I'll be happy enough.
