Re: Any good lighted, weighted key digital pianos out there?

Oh wow! So you may be able to color code the hands in the future? That would be awesome! Talk about a win/win for everyone!

Thanks for the info. Going to head to guitar center soon.

Re: Any good lighted, weighted key digital pianos out there?

Oh cool! I wasn't aware of the KK S88. It looks like my local guitar center has them in stock. I'll have to check it out. I HAVE seen those lighted strips, but the lack of a full 88 Key version has prevented me from buying one. Oh, and most importantly, does Synthesia work with the KK S88? Thanks fo...

Any good lighted, weighted key digital pianos out there?

I've been searching for years for a digital piano with lighted AND weighted keys. The only ones I've found have been out of production for years. They're both made by Casio. The cheaper was the PX-500L and the higher end was the AL-150R. There was also an AL-100R but apparently it was quickly replac...

Re: Casio Celviano AL-150R

Of course! That makes perfect sense. I've established that my iPad MIDI converter works because I'm using it with my Casio Privia PX-320. It's an iRig MIDI. So, what i SHOULD have asked is if anyone has tried the iRig MIDI with the Celviano AL-150R, huh? It helps to ask the right questions if I want...

Casio Celviano AL-150R

Can anyone confirm if the Celviano AL-150R works with Synthesia on an iPad? I have the converter to convert the data from the iPad to MIDI, and the Celviano has MIDI in and out. I just don't know if that automatically means that it will work. Looking at a used one for sale and it's really nice. Just...

Re: Casio Privia PX-500L

Thanks Nicholas! I could have sworn 500L was one of the searches I did, but obviously not. Now on to find one of these illusive beasts!

Casio Privia PX-500L

I've read great reviews about this keyboard. Turns out Casio stopped making it for some reason and didn't replace it. I'd like to try to find a used one. If I do, can anyone tell me if Synthesia will support the lighted keys on it? It seems to me that a weighted, lighted key digital piano along with...

Re: Music staff position indicator line

Ok, I think I see what you're saying.... If not, I may have just realized the error of my overly simplistic thinking. Just because the falling notes GUI is 50% complete doesn't mean the staff will be exactly 50% complete. On the staff, a whole note takes up no more horizontal space than a quarter no...

Re: Can I record the song in Synthesia?

So, would the iRig MIDI recording app work for this? I initially opted not to mess with that software, but maybe that's the way to go. I've kind of dedicated my iPad to my digital piano. I'd rather not have to use a separate device for recording.

Re: Music staff position indicator line

I'm probably about to seriously show my ignorance here.... but what the heck. Would it be possible to calculate where the red line should be based on the completion percentage of the falling notes? If the falling notes start to finish were represented from 0.00% to 100.00%, could that be used in the...

Re: can we PLEEEEEASE have instant midi transpose function??

I'll second this request. The Entertainer is a great example. It's played in G#, but way easier for my beginner fingers to play in G. Those black keys scare me. :?

Music staff position indicator line

You're going to get sick of seeing me, Nicholas. I can tell already. :) I definitely want to use Synthesia to learn how to read music. It seems perfectly well suited for that. One (hopefully) small addition would help me out tremendously. How difficult would it be to put a small, vertical red line i...

Re: Can I record the song in Synthesia?

OK, I KNEW this feature had to have been requested before. Let me tell you how I'd like to use it. I just sat down to fiddle around with Synthesia and the old Legend of Zelda theme song popped in my head. It's very simple... just an alternating bass line and a one note melody (as were most of those ...

Re: App crash when trying to set loop

Man, talk about service! Found and fixed the bug in less than 45 minutes! Impressive, good sir. You're right, I was trying to start the loop at the first note. I'll just avoid that until you get the new release out. How did I manage to find that bug so quickly? Are others just not using the Loop fun...

App crash when trying to set loop

Loaded up the latest version on my iPad Mini from the App Store. Every time I tap the Loop button, when the Loop option buttons appear on the screen, no matter which button I touch, the app crashes and goes back to the home screen. I've tried touching every one of the Loop option buttons and they al...

Re: How do I connect an iPad mini?

Just wanted to report that I got my iRig MIDI and 30 pin to Lightning converter (with the cable in between the 2 ends) today. Hooked it up and BAM! Just like the magic I've come to expect from Apple. There was no software loading. No app to install (though it did prompt me to download the iRig app f...

Re: How do I connect an iPad mini?

"Class compliant MIDI" That's the phrase I needed for searching. Turns out my PX-320 isn't class compliant. Looks like its going to be MIDI ports and an iRig for me.

Many thanks!
