Enabling ASIO on Synthesia

Use case: Want to play Synthesia, but have a cheap/onboard sound card that doesn’t support ASIO. Non-ASIO MIDI input has significant delays.

Step 1: Install MIDI sequencer/synth. For example, Ableton Live or FL Studio.

Step 2: Install asio4all [www.asio4all.com]. Configure your sequencer to use it as an output. Verify that you actually hear some sounds.
NOTE: Asio4all may not work for you. In that case, shell out some $$$ for a decent sound card. The trick is not to use MS GS Wavetable Synth.[forums.majorgeeks.com]

Step 3: Download and install LoopBe1 virtual MIDI connector. Configure sequencer to use LoopBe1. (HOWTO: Configure LoopBe1 and FL Studio [synthesiagame.com]).

Step 4: Configure Synthesia to use LoopBe1 as an input.

Step 5: Profit!!! (ok no profit, but at least I can play)
