    Hello everyone!

    Today's update is mostly a bug-fix update, but it also has minor tweaks to some features based on community feedback. I'm listing down some of the more obvious items... others are extremely specific and wouldn't be practical to list them all out.

    Fixes/Improvements -

    • Automatic profile switching is faster and more reliable when auto-switching (using game linking).
    • No more desktop shortcut after update (ed : please work this time).
    • Chroma Studio - devices can share borders (and hence can be placed closer together now)
    • Ripple/Wave/Wheel have an "on selected keys" stop option (for people who like to use them as caps/num indicator using custom configuration)
    • Small fixes for the 3 new effects (ambient, audio meter, wheel).
    • Chroma Visualizer - Visualizer bars are now 2.5x higher to make the whole range (1-10) more usable, and allow reasonable use with low application volume.
    • Fix for macro playback duration being much longer than recorded duration when using mouse movement macros
    • Fix for windows scaling messing up size of mouse movement macros during playback (and similar related bugs).


    There will be a another update (in the next few days) which unlocks probably the most requested feature for Synapse 2 and 3. Feel free to look at our CEO's recent reddit posts if you want a hint. ;)

    Hue module on this update dont give me error any more but still when i select light in my case lightstrip and two hue play bars and change tab to let's main or studio light source unselect and the only light selected is first on list also synapse dont start after windows boot i must open it myself from razer central tray app.

    When i change connection from wirless to wired to charge my mamba wirless 2018 synapse frezze battery status the only thing to fix this i unplug mouse from wire and connect it back. This issue was on previous synapse build and it's still in new.

    Edit 2:
    Issue with synapse auto start fixed. So when synapse is load or perform to load settings when it start take pretty high ammount of resources and antivus in my case Norton internet security 2018 see synapse as danger/virus that can demage pc. To make sure synapse dont demage antivus change windows system settings and prevent synapse to autostart.

    Edit 4:
    When i enter Nommo Pro settings window profile window change is missing but when i change tab to profiles module there i can select Nommo Pro and menage profile add/delete.

    Please. FFS. Let us save a DEFAULT static color profile to the huntsman elite's onboard memory! That rainbow wave thing is disgusting

    Chroma Visualiser even on scale 10 has very little effect if you use a 5.1 setup to play music. Seems fine on stereo. Not sure if there's room for feedback here but there it is.

    EDIT: Almost forgot, this is when upmixing so all channels are in fact playing, not just L and R. However, after reading up on how this feature works, it seems upmixing would have to happen from within the application for this to show up. So I guess it's "working as intended".

    Please,add Razer Orbweaver support to Synapse 3

    The most requested feature I see around here is adding the Razer Orbweaver into Synapse 3. At the very least, it would be nice to get an Orbweaver V2 or a new mechanical or opto-mechanical keypad if the original Orbweaver isn't going to be added into Synapse 3.

    Tartarus V2 just isn't going to cut it for those who want a true mechanical keypad.

    Cause an accident i dont have left wrist and with the adjustable modules its perfect for me so i bought a pack of Razer Huntsman Elite and Razer Orbweaver (more expensive than the tartarus) and when im installing the software i check that are not supported by same software but the fking Tartarus,a way cheaper,its totally supported.

    That's totally understandable and I hope Razer gets this. There just isn't any products out there that's as good as the Razer Orbweaver and its ergonomics helped a lot of gamers ranging from disabled gamers to competitive gamers and even workers who work in front of the computer and use macros keys to make their work easier. For me, it's a great travel companion with the Razer Blade 15 since it's small and compact compared to a keyboard.

    I only need a programmable keyboard to play games and not an entire keyboard since my Razer Blade comes with a keyboard for me to type with. It really is great to have since the laptop does get too hot and that's where the keypad comes in handy.

    It's too bad Razer hasn't paid any attention to this product but I really hope that it eventually gets added into Synapse 3 or get a product update (preferably with opto-mechanical keys like the Huntsman). Although mechanical keypads appears to be a niche product, it's a massive game changer for consumers who gave it a shot and actually used it.

    thats a negative, bugging the hell out on me, 90% refusal to switch over to a different game profile when that game is launched and linked.

    my workaround is to dupe the keybinds and it will switch to that dupe of them, but the fist copy of the binds nope.

    and yes I did report this already via the built in feedback.

    ive found that Tartarus V2 to be a good change over from my old Nostromo that was starting to die.
  12. RocketSkates93

    RocketSkates93 Well-Known Member

    That's fine too but the old Nostromo is a membrane keypad and you are definitely upgrading by switching over to the mecha-membrane Tartarus V2 supported by Synpase 3.

    Many of us, however, would rather use mechanical keys than membrane or mecha-membrane keys and the only mechanical keypad available is the Orbweaver which isn't supported by Synapse 3.

    on the orbweaver, that small bit on the side that looks like a thumb rest, is it a key/toggle or just a rest?

    the only reason I got the Tartarus is cause its the Nostromo but with 5 more keys, same layout and everything.
  14. RocketSkates93

    RocketSkates93 Well-Known Member

    It's a thumbstick which is similar to a d-pad or those you would see in a controller. Although I love the Orbweaver, I actually think a d-pad like in the Tartarus is better than the thumbstick. I'm willing to overlook that though since it's negligible to me compared to having mechanical keys instead of a membrane or mecha-membrane keys.

    First of all thank you for finally implementing this! Secondly if i try this it doesn't seem to be working correctly if i start "on selected keys" and stop it will just do my Wave one time and then stop. Im guessing this is because it starts and ends with the same button press? Anyhow it should start with the keypress and then stop when those keys get pressed again.

    Please let us use Synapse 2 Chroma profiles in Synapse 3. Would make everything much easier for us who have Razer products that work on both Synapse 2 and 3.

    Not sure how this bug slipped through, but you are right. We've identified the underlying issue and will address this in the next major update.

    I'm going to buy whatever I need so I'm going to get one one way or the other I just want to know if they're going to eventually support the orb-weaver are they going to support the orbweaver chroma
