Absolutely! Although acoustic pianos can't be connected to your device like a MIDI keyboard could be, they can communicate with our note recognition software through your device's built-in microphone.
Most modern laptops and tablets are equipped with a perfectly good built-in microphone ready to listen to you and your piano. To minimize the margin of error, it is best to use a piano tuned to standard pitch (440 Hz) in a quieter room to limit the amount of background noise the microphone picks up on.
Our app is tuned to standard pitch (440 Hz). So you'll get the best results when your instrument is tuned likewise. On this page, you can check if your instrument is tuned to 440 Hz. To test your tuning, please allow the microphone access. Then, play the 4th A key counting from left. If the cursor is too far off 440 Hz, the instrument would need tuning.
Opening the lid can also help to improve the note detection via microphone.
