Re: PlaygroundSessions on Linux

The program itself has not been updated in years. I would try closing PGS and try to download the lesson at a later time. Unless the PGS backend for retrieving songs, lessons, etc has been modified. I'm pretty sure the 2032 error is a generic connection related error to their servers. It was bad a c...

Re: Allow us to add Annotations to Sheet Music

If you want to manually edit the score to add your personal notes, read this post I made awhile back: https://forums.playgroundsessions.com/viewtopic.php?t=18695 It shows that words and finger numbers/letters can be added/subtracted and moved up and down by modifying the score's XML file. You can ev...

Re: Grading Question

Holds aren't graded. They are either hit, missed, or pressed late. There are 4 colors to adjust. I have mine set for: Correctly Played: Green Missed: Purple Wrong note: Red Played late but correct: Pink <-- This is the one I adjusted. I think by default it was Red which doesn't give very good feedba...

Re: new version 2020

Every once in a while an old song I have will have an update. I wish they'd at least hype those changes or release more information on what changed in the song.

Re: PS just to play songs?

I completed the rookie bootcamp and all the rookie courses months ago. I'm halfway through the intermediate bootcamp. Intermediate is tough because you're expected to read and play quickly and my sight reading/coordination can't keep up with the program. I'm quite stumped. I've been learning rookie...

Re: PS just to play songs?

I use it to play songs only. Learning the songs is quick because the score is numbered, the metronome is great, and song speed can be adjusted. If you are taking 3 plus months to learn a piece, I'd recommend learning easier songs to keep the progress flowing. Having a larger repertoire should make l...

Re: Is headphones practise possible ?

I use a mixer sometimes to combine the two sounds. My current piano has an AUX IN port that I plug a cable to connect my tablet to my piano so those sounds come through the piano. But if you don't have an AUX in, there are relatively inexpensive ways to join the two signals together to play in one ...

Re: Extremely disappointed with the Song Library interface

No QoL updates since 2016 is a shame. I'm waiting for someone to create a home brew Playground Sessions 2.0. Then we'd just import our purchased music and accompaniments from PGS. It'd be really simply, none of the scores or accompaniments are encrypted. This app needs a face lift with QoL improveme...
