Audio setup: → Advanced settings
- Driver: Enables you to select between drivers, such as an ASIO driver when used. Yousician on Android has the option to select between Android Audio and Android OpenSL drivers. If you encounter latency issues on Android, try switching to a different driver.
Input device: The inbuilt microphone in your device is the default option. If you use an audio interface, you can select it as the default input device instead.
Input channel: The default input channel is set to the first available one. If you are using an external audio interface with many channels, you can select the channel in Yousician that matches the one on your interface.
Buffer size: This setting is available on iOS and Android versions. Smaller buffer decreases audio latency, but it may cause performance issues. Larger buffer has longer audio latency, but better performance.
MIDI sensitivity: Some keyboards have the ability to perceive when a key is played soft vs hard. The more strength used, the louder the sound produced. When you select higher sensitivity, Yousician produces the MIDI sound accordingly. If you use a mobile device and the piano sound is delayed, set the buffer size to 256 or lower. This setting is available if you connect your keyboard to your device.
Song data cache: If you have trouble opening songs in-app, try clearing the cache with this option.
Built-in keyboard: (mobile and touch screen enabled devices only): When toggled on, it adds a touch key piano to your screen. If you have a piano/keyboard instrument, make sure that the toggle is off (gray). The option is available for beginner level exercises only.
Fullscreen (desktop only): You can adjust the screen size by dragging it with your mouse. You can also switch to full screen mode by toggling the option on.
Pre-song chord trainers (guitar & ukulele): Toggle on to practice chords before you play a song.
Left-handed mode: Toggle on if you play left handed.
Colorblind mode (guitar, ukulele & bass): Change the game play colors. The available themes are Protanopia, Deuteranopia and Tritanopia.
Today's goal achievement screen: Toggle off (gray) to stop Daily goal updates.
