  1. Did you download that song from somewhere, where did you get it? If you can reproduce it perhaps I can as well. However it would be more fun to download Muse Starlight to test this. I find it's doing that for some notes randomly but I think it's happening more when I miss a key, and it may be a factor that I'm using songs downloaded that aren't yet formatted for Casio. I haven't had time to use the Casio software that you can use to format and create midi files but here's the link that may help you fix the missing lighted key http://music.casio.com/e/smf/
  2. Yes I'm saying that. And it stops for you to play the music or you can set it to keep going too. This information is readily available about how to use midi files and you can also find the instructions and video tutorials available on these companies websites. Yes you can add midi files for free on Synthesia, even in the trial, but it requires you to pay for license before you can play entire midi songs (trial version ends song early). It's only 29 bucks if you like it. Can't hurt to try it for free.
  3. I went with both! Got the LK-265 for my niece and the LK-280 for myself. Bought the Windows program http://www.synthesiagame.com/ and have already started adding midi files off the internet for free. The Chordana play app should allow you to add midi files as well. Casio if you're listening, I would have purchases the Chordana Play app from you had it been made for Windows too. Steps to use: 1. Download the contents in your computer and transfer to the memory of the smart device on which Chordana Play is downloaded. 2. Open Chordana Play > Midi Files. All the files should show up in Chordana Play App. 3. Start playing the songs via the app or transfer in your Keyboard (CTK-2500, CTK-3500)
  4. I am looking to pick up a new lighted keyboard to help my niece learn how to play keyboard, and figure I would purchase one for myself. I originally picked up an LK-135 for this Xmas as an impulse buy, but then started researching the higher end models and am just plain confused as to which to upgrade to. I would appreciate the ability to learn with the Chordana Play App, as the advertisement states, "Just download your favorite MIDI files, connect your device's headphone output to the LK-265's audio input, and explore an endless library of music." (I have 80GB of my own store bought music, woohoo!) But if the LK-280 is the flagship model in this lineup, how come it does not mention any integration with the Chordana Play app? Will it work at all with it? Is the app even necessary to port my own songs over to learn on the lighted keys? The Chordana Play app just makes it look easy to teach my niece with the plug and play functionality without having to explain to a 3 yr old (And my sister who isn't technical at all) how to hack a song into a Midi file on Windows 10 and insert an SD card. I also really like that the 280 records if I ever want to make an attempt at being the next Trent Reznor with my own completed songs which the 265 does not seem to support. Basically if the 280 works with the app it would make it well worth the upgrade but there is no resources on anyone doing this. If anyone has any experience with these combinations, please let us know your experience.
