    Hello everyone!

    A new Synapse update is here. Version number should be 3.4.711.71718 after update.

    Here's a summary of some of the most significant changes in this release.

    Improvements -
    • Option to disable/enable notification for DPI/Profile switch etc in the settings menu.
    • UI improvement - Key assignments now have a dropdown for better flexibility/options.
    • Macros can now be mapped to scroll up/down.
    • Macro recording now allows scroll up/down events.
    • Macro editor now allows half-actions (only key-up or key-down)
    • UI improvement - Standalone record button
    • UI improvements in Chroma Studio when selecting multiple LEDs with different properties.
    • Improvements to Ambient Awareness effect in Chroma Studio (lowered "minimum area" requirement).
    • Sync-conflict dialogue - for users on one account across multiple-PCs.
    • Updated to the latest version of Philips Hue EDK.
    Fixes -
    • Chroma Visualizer fixes for Chroma HDK and Tartarus V2.
    • Fix for a profile duplication bug (side-effect of an optimization in the last update).
    • Another speculative fix for Game Manager Service taking up CPU when idle.
    • Fix for Chroma Studio live-preview taking up CPU even when minimized.


    For the next major release, the team is now working hard on the new Alexa module (which we announced at CES).

    No update yet on bringing the Orbweaver to Synapse 3 :frown_:

    At least release an Orbweaver V2 or a new mechanical (or opto-mechanical) keypad that is compatible with Synapse 3. The Tartarus V2 (or mecha-membrane/non-mechanical keypads) just doesn't cut it for me. Keypads are an amazing pairing with the Razer Blade 15.

    Before implementing new features, you should finish all those things, missing in the Synapse3 software:
    - support for legacy devices
    - import of synapse2 profiles
    - offline mode
    - faultless install/deinstall process
    and so on.

    My Naga Trinity has been having issues the last couple of days, most notably after applying the update. It seems to forget the lighting profile it had when I resume from hibernate and just goes back to the default of spectrum cycling. I have to go to the Chroma Studio and change my effect set to a different one and then back. Another issue I have noticed is that now it also seems to be having an issue with double or triple right clicking, which I admit might not be a Synapse issue and may be a mechanical issue, but I only noticed it starting very recently.

    The Naga Tinity also seems to create a duplicate default profile that it automatically switches to every once in a while. It doesnt happen super often, but it happened a few days ago and then again this morning, but the last time before that was a few weeks ago. I try to delete the profile, but it just happens later. That had happened before the latest update, as well as happening this morning.

    Also I just want to put the obligatory message that I want Orbweaver supported on Synapse 3

    I understand the need to gear synapse 3 toward new peripherals, but not allowing the orbweaver to work with Synapse 3 but still selling the device, I feel, is a corrupt business move. Legacy devices should be ones that aren't sold anymore. I've only had my OrbWeaver for about 6 months, and I definitely will feel cheated if they never intend to integrate it with Synapse 3.

    Want the offline mode so badly!!!!!!!!!!!
    Many users are regretting their purchase because of the online nature of synapse........
  7. Seriously? I just bought an Orbweaver because your Tartarus V2 messes with my wrist!

    why is your more expensive version walking with a limp?

    I'm genuinely surprised that there are many people asking for Synapse 3 support for Orbweaver. I have always thought of it as a niche product that a lot of people didn't really care for aside from the select few MMO gamers and disabled gamers who need support for their wrist. I'm glad I'm not alone on this one though.

    I would buy love to buy a brand new Orbweaver if it ever gets supported by Synapse 3 but if it never does then I would be happy for a brand new mechanical keypad. I'm not too fond of the non-mechanical Tartarus V2 when I tried it in the Razer Store but I do love the feel of the Razer Huntsman so I hope they make a new keypad based on that one.

    This update muffled the audio on my Kraken Tournament Edition.

    I previously went months without working surround sound and an update a couple months back fixed that, without the typical BS fixes like, "Completely uninstall Synapse, delete reg keys, blah blah blah,' that everyone gets told to do.

    This latest update makes audio sound like it's underwater slightly, so i system restored to get it working again.

    Why is this always one step forward and two steps back?

    Also, why am I forced to use beta software for products that are not being sold as beta products?

    This is getting really dumb.

    Today I decided to update my gear. I bought a Naga Trinity, Huntsman Elite, and an Orbweaver Chroma. Only to discover that the Orbweaver Chroma, was not Syn3 compatible........ I understand the trials and difficulty of reprogramming. However please let me know if I need to try and return this Orbweaver or if support is coming.

    Same :slightly_sad:
  13. Wondering if this has happened for anyone else, but this latest version seems to break HUE connect when in games (Overwatch, Deadcells, etc.) Hue connect is working fine in chroma studio, but my hue devices just go static in any game. I have both Synapse and my Hue bridge updated to the latest. Any help??

    So on this update Mamba wirless when switch to standby mode and show after wakeup on synapse the only way to get back is turn off and on or close and open synapse again the same thing is with nommo pro sometimes speakers disapear and to show up must do the same things as with mamba. Synapse also streach to very large window when pc is first time boot after few houres of not using it, Some time synapse dont show as main window device window but global shorcut tab.

    When Nari Ultimate reciver is connected to Razer Basestation chroma and chroma lightning is turn on on headset is crackling when chroma lightning is turn off crackling is not present and audio is clear.Connected is just reciver and laptop take 58 to 61W from outlet so it's not a power issue.

    Seriously, where's the support for Orbweaver? It's your best keypad, it's still being sold and it's a badass product (glue issue aside). Let it actually shine like it should.
  17. FYI - follow up... Phillips released a Hue Bridge update a few days ago that appears to have to have resolved the aforementioned issue!

    As written: the Team (I assume 1 or 2) are working hard on such an important thing as "Alexa" integration.
    That's what we all are waiting for so heavily.
    No fixes. Sry !

    Regretting my Nommo purchase so hard because it is incompatible with synapse 2... how are you going to deprecate an applications previous version that has more functionality while the successor is still in beta without even the same fundamental functionality...

    Its like gmail said here is G mail 2 beta, and you can only receive emails while you are actively logged into a gmail client, otherwise your emails will just be discarded. But that doesnt matter because look at all the new fonts that you can use in the composition of your emails... btw we are forcing your accounts to only work with gmail 2 beta.

    And on top of that since Synapse 3 has been released about 2 years ago, there has been clear communication and backlash from customers not only on these forums, but in countless subreddits as well as other forums. instead of finding a pragmatic solution, we get irrational excuses, or locking/deleting our threads in response. Even if the engineers are really trying to keep the configuration memory management off of the devices hardware/embedded software you could atleast give us the option to toggle between having it go rainbow mode or just have all of the LEDs off when communication with the app is unavailable. Ideally yes I would like my custom profile, but I would rather almost anything then the outlandish rainbow road that has been imposed on me.
