Your options are:

  • MIDI via Cable

  • MIDI via Bluetooth

MIDI via Cable

You will need:

Your setup will look something like this:

Step 1: Connect the Camera Connection Kit to your iPad's lightning port (or 30-pin port for older models):

Please note: If you have an iPad Pro with USB C then you can skip step 1 and 2. You only need the USB B to USB C cable. Just plug it directly into the USB C port of your iPad.

Step 2: Plug the USB A end of the USB cable into the Camera Connection Kit: 

Step 3: If your piano has a USB B output (often labeled "TO HOST"), plug the USB B end of the cable into it. You need a USB 2.0 cable for this.

If your piano has a 5-pin MIDI output, plug the IN and OUT ends of the cable into it.

That's it! Open flowkey and play away with a flawless recognition of notes!

MIDI via Bluetooth

You will need:

  • iOS app

  • MIDI Bluetooth adapter

Your setup will look something like this:

Step 1: Connect your MIDI Bluetooth adapter to your keyboard. Depending on the outputs of your keyboard, you will require either a 5-pin MIDI adapter or a USB one.

Step 2: Turn on Bluetooth from your iPad's control center. (This can also be done under Settings > Bluetooth.)

Step 3: Open the flowkey app. In the player, tap on the "Settings" symbol (⚙) in the top right corner, select "MIDI / USB," and tap on "Configure Bluetooth MIDI" to select your MIDI device.

That's it! Your device will connect and start communicating with your instrument via MIDI. Enjoy a much smoother note recognition through a more convenient, wireless connection.
