Re: The ONE Piano Hi-Lite and Synthesia

Yup! The Hi-Lite bar has red and blue colors for left and right hand !!

In Synthesia, the bar shows under Bluetooth connections, but when you tap to connect, the wheel just spins round and round until an error message comes up. Hope they send you a bar so you can work out all the issues. Thx.

Re: The ONE Piano Hi-Lite and Synthesia

Replying to myself. The device does seem to work via USB cable to Apple camera connection kit. But the left and right hand colors are not showing on the bar like they do in the native app. Selected The One Proprietary under key light settings.

Still would like to use Bluetooth if possible.

The ONE Piano Hi-Lite and Synthesia

Anyone with experience using the Hi-lite bar? I just opened mine, and I've updated to the latest version of Synethesia on iOS 10.3.1 Unfortunately, even thought the hi-lite device is seen under "Bluetooth Settings", Synetheia refuses to connect to it. The native iPad software by The One music group ...

Re: 10.4 preview r4376 - Feature round-up

That stinks about The ONE Pianos and PC versions. But It's a good thing I own both PC and iOS versions. ;) Regarding the iOS update, I haven't installed iOS 11 yet, but I understand there is a file manager. Does it allow you to more easily manage your MIDI files and import them into Synthesia? Can y...

Regarding the ONE smart piano support, does that also include their piano HiLite 88 key bar?

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

Yes, it does appear to have "special sensors". They have an indiegogo now with many more details and a video. Again it mentions being open to third party midi apps. Yousician and garageband are shown as examples. The first 100 people get in at 40% off (by invite only) so I took the plunge to be one ...

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

Piano Hi-Lite is coming out this month. They've started to ramp up with social media and email promotions. The interesting thing is that it seems to work with digital or acoustic pianos. I guess by physically sensing if the key is depressed. Not "midi data" for the notification if the key was presse...

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

CSP looks so cool. But $3,500 for the base model has me reeling. Did you get more info on The ONE piano strip? Will that also be compatible? Will it work with standard 88 key midi pianos? That device is a lot easier to swallow price wise. ;)

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

That would be nice. I also just discovered Yamaha's new CSP line of digital pianos. You can find it on YouTube or kraftmusic. They've implemented "falling guide lights" directly on the piano now. Pretty crazy to see the concept in hardware. But I wonder how practical it will be given the resolution ...

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

Well if it is indeed compatible with any/most 88 key digital pianos, then I'd like to think that the lights would respond to regular midi messages. The website also mentions third party software applications.

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

I've not heard of "One Piano Hi-Lite".
This is called "The One Smart Piano Strip".
I'll attach a photo.

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

Any update on this? It seems the "NKS standard" has been opened to third party developers.

Also the makers of "The One Piano" are coming out with an 88 key LED strip this fall.

Re: iOS: MIDI File directories?

Hmm, I don't have a great answer. Every other platform except the iPad version has an extra option at the top level called "All Songs (grouped by folder)" which would do exactly what you're looking for. But on iPad, Apple frowns on the mention of the file system. In their UI guidelines they mention...

Re: iOS: MIDI File directories?

Actually, I'm pretty sure it is allowed. It's no problem showing the directories in Home Concert Xtreme (see attached pic). And the entire file tree remains intact including multiple nested subfolders. AudioShare allows me to do all sorts of directory management from within the program (add, copy, p...

iOS: MIDI File directories?

Hello, I've uploaded all my various MIDI files to iPad Synthesia file sandbox via iTunes (iFunbox). However, even though they are organized in proper directories as shown in the sandbox, when I go to my iPad, they show up as one LONG list of MIDI files. This is quite bothersome since I've got 1000+ ...

Re: Synthesia for Android Beta

Sorry if this is a silly question, but why did you decide to make Synthesia cheaper on Android platforms?
And on a side note, do you ever put the app on sale for a super-low price to attract impulse buyers?

Re: Synthesia for Android Beta

The sound delay is an unfortunate property of Android. There are very, very few tablets (like 7 models) that take advantage of the new "low latency audio" features added in Android 4. On all the rest, you end up with something like 1/4 second minimum. I understand. So how about the ability to "offs...

Re: Synthesia for Android Beta

Works great on my Nook HD+ (with Android 4.1+ loaded on it). There is quite a delay on the internal sound source. With the mio MIDI adapter it works in perfect time, but of course my digital piano (CDP-100) doesn't have any drum sounds so the metronome is just loud piano notes. An option to offset t...
