[Update] 2.4 New Timeline Feature + Bug Fixes

Todays update brings a feature I’ve been wanting to implement for a while but have had some problems with so it kept getting placed on the sidelines. Today that feature is finally going to be released. I’m calling it the Metronome Timeline.

New Features



The Metronome Timeline is feature that will help Kina-Musicians keep better control of their rhythm. The way it works is when you set the (BPM) Beats Per Minute to anything besides 0 (in the settings menu) it will create the Metronome Timeline in the bottom right corner (above the Clock Controls). Lets say for instance you set the BPM to 60. That means every minute there will be 60 beats so one beat every second. The Metronome Timeline in the bottom left will move one segment (node) every second and sync up with the Clock. By default there is 4 segments in a measure. You will be able to choose how many segments you want there to be in a measure. You will also be given the option to enable or disable the Metronome’s audio.

With the addition of the Metronome Timeline, I also added a mode called Beat-to-Beat mode. When holding Ctrl (Control) and pressing Play, the song will go until the next node and pause on it (within the closest frame). This will be used to better time collisions and further help with rhythm.

Bug Fixes

Tweaked Drop Collisions - This shouldn’t mess up any songs. But make it more consistent.

Fixed Solfege Animation Anomalies - Due to different framerates the Solfege (Do-Re-Mi-Fa-Sol-La-Ti) would fade out too fast or too slow. This should now not be a problem.

Fixed Solfege Sometimes Displaying Placeholder Text - Rarely when hitting a Rest Line the text “Hey” would appear.

[Update] 2.3.4 Bug Fixes + Small Tutorial Video

Todays update brings you some small fixes that should make accessing sound packs from the Steam Workshop easier.

Workshop SoundPack Fix - When doing the Workshop rework in v2.3.3. I overlooked adjusting loading the soundpack names. After updating to v2.3.3 if you tried loading a soundpack it would be called something like 79889282, rather then the actual name of the soundpack. This has now been fixed. However due to this fix soundpacks are handled a bit differently. Prior to todays updates soundpacks had an .jpg file inside them called "icon.jpg". Now the soundpack will be named after the picture used for the soundpack. For instance there's some new soundpacks up today one is called Acoustic Guitar. It has a file named "AcousticGuitar.jpg".

Fixed Space Bar Metronome Input - Accidentally left this feature in for several patches. I've now removed it.

I also made a new video explaining how to convert an entire song to a different instrument

Thanks for the continued support of Kinacoustic. As usual if you find any bugs please email us at: contactus@kinacoustic.com or create a post on the Report A Bug Forum Directory

About This Game

Kinacoustic is a music composition game and a new musical experience. You can control the elements of music by bouncing melodic Drops onto colored Note Lines that you place. In doing this, you can create basic or complex songs - your own composition or a cover.



Kinacoustic is full of features that help you create songs and enjoy the game:

  • Rhythm - Sometimes referred to as beat, the pace at which notes are being played. Control this with the Drop Emitters and the Clock.

So you can add other people's Sound Packs to your game, directly from the Steam Workshop. Or if you are tech savvy you can make your own and upload if you like.

  • Dynamics - The volume at which a particular note is being played. Control this by making the lines thinner and thicker.

  • Sustain - How long a note is being held. Control this by creating a Sustain Orb. Whatever passes through a Sustain Orb has it's Sustain changed to the value on the Sustain Orb.

  • Drag Box Tool - Use this to copy and paste chunks of a song and move it.
