    Does anyone know how to get the program to actually work in the way it does in the video? My keyboard responds to the visualiser but just decides to have a spasm of lighting rather, than anything like it meant to

    It's based on volume, so turn up the amplitude if you're seeing a few keys light up. If you're keyboard didn't go black, you need to make sure you've enabled the correct SDK version (32-bit / 64-bit). You may also need to restart for the SDK to be installed correctly.

    Also to everyone, make sure you're using the latest version of synapse.

    Hey guys! Here are some answer to your queries.

    To those facing the "mfc140.dll is missing" issue
    Download the Visual Studio Redistributable version "vc_redist.x86.exe"
    Only should you still face an issue, you can try the 64bit version "vc_redist.x64.exe"

    As this is a very early build, it clashes with Advanced Configurator occasionally.

    Change your effects to the default ones e.g. Wave, Spectrum Cycling. You can then launch the application and your keyboard/mousemat/mice will show a blank slate until a sound is played.

    What products does it work with?
    It works with the Blackwidow Chroma, Blackwidow Chroma TE, Firefly, Mamba TE and the Deathadder Chroma.

    Kraken 7.1 Chroma is not supported.

    The visualizer bars are really low, anyway to fix that?
    You can bump the bar's height up by increasing the amplitude or your volume (not too much please).

    How do I get the colours like the ones in the video?
    Adjust "Foreground Mode" to the colour scheme that you like. In the video, I used "Rainbow Inverse". You can also add a "Background Mode" should you like.

    *Added all these points to the main post too*

    @Razer|Rfx forgot to mention that if you have used the Advanced Configurator, then the SDK currently does not work. Change your default effects to one of the standard effects for it to work (static etc.)

    Doesn't seem to be working for me. I ran all the steps with the x86 version. I have a BlackWidow Chroma. Ive tried with Synapse running and not running. Tried with multiple sound output settings, and from different sound players (online, and offline).

    Tried that. It didn't go blank. It's still on the default effect (static).

    Mine goes black but then doesn't react to any sound playing. Any advice on how to get it working from there?

    I can get it to work correctly inside of the Visualizer program, but nothing changes on my keyboard no matter what settings I use on Synapse. Blackwidow and Deathadder combo


    And now nothing on youtube wants to load or play.

    Hey @JoshBGaming , @ParkourEDM and @bluemoonman99

    Have you guys also followed through the 2nd to 4th steps too? Installing the SDK Core Files along with enabling the SDK Registry files are important steps.

    After changing your effects to the default lighting profiles, you can also exit Synapse to be doubly sure.


    This is still an very early build so fret not! Things will get easier in the future :)

    @CalcProgrammer1 will also be taking in your feedbacks into consideration for future versions.

    have you restarted your system?
     
  19. Just a quick question, I can't seem to download the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. Does anyone else have this problem or know a fix for it?

    Anything to do with a 140.dll is the Visual C++ Runtime, an essential component to use any programs built with Visual Studio 2015. The visualizer requires 32 bit version even if you are on a 64 bit OS.

    As for volume, some sysstems seem to be independent of system volume while others are dependent upon it. It is an issue with Windows beyond what it allows me to control. That's why I have the amplitude setting, so you can adjust to correct for your PCs volume.
