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!

Step 3: Open the flowkey app. In the player, tap on "Learn Song" in the top right corner, then on the "Settings" symbol (⚙) in the top left corner, and select "MIDI / Bluetooth Setup" and click 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.
