Synthesia Midi File Improvements

September 27th, 2015


The creator of synthesia recently added a couple of cool features and combined with a few tools I made, you can make some great songs!

For the following you need a few things, you will need synthesia metadata editor and a midi file.

You can get:

Synthesia metadata editor here: https://github.com/Synthesia-LLC/metadata-editor/releases

And a sample midi file here: http://joeybabcock.me/music/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/ATHESPEEDOFLIGHT1.mid

1: Change song properties

Open metadata editor and click add song:

Choose your song and click on the file name in the top left corner:

Now you can change things such as:

Song name, this will make it display something other than the filename

Background, This will give the song a custom background when played! See below for an example.

Composer/Arranger will show at the beginning

Once you’re done, save the file as *.synthesia (Where * is your filename)

And open your song in synthesia, your changes will show!
