Re: How to use higher quality sounds

I'm curious how you route the MIDI from your Digital Piano to the DAW and Playground Sessions at the same time. It's automatic. Meaning that my computer is recieving the MIDI from the Digital Piano. So each program is receiving the midi simultaneously. If I don't turn the piano volume down in Playg...

How to use higher quality sounds

I'm going to share with you a method I use to practice with higher quality piano sounds. This won't work for everyone as it requires additional software. One of the main gripes I've had with the app is that the piano sound is horrific. There are very little dynamics and it's difficult to get a good,...

Re: Simple, cheap and effective mounting solution for laptop on Yamaha P-115

That looks pretty slick. And If I didn't already have a solution I would definitely give that a try. I was fortunate enough to have another stand gifted to me. It's an Apex AX-48 Pro by Ultimate Support. It's meant for 2 keyboards but I use the top layer for my laptop. It's a little high because I h...

Re: Sound problems w iPad

I'm having a lot of trouble with the iPad sound as well. I'm using a Yamaha P-115 and an iPad Air 2. It's frustrating because I want to incorporate it into my daily practice routine, but sometimes the sound will work and sometimes it won't. Before it cuts out, I'll hear a loud click and pop and then...

Sort by artist in song store isn't working

Is anyone else having the issue with the store not being able to sort alphabetically by artist? When I click on the artist bar at the top, the arrow will toggle but the list doesn't change. Every other category sorts just fine. Bug maybe? Also, I don't see a way to search... Am I missing something? ...

Re: Practice exercises

This may only be partially relevant, but... I recently discoverd some software called Sight Reading Factory that compliments Playground sessions nicely. It's only about 35 dollars per year.

Check it out!

Re: Music output crasches

The audio crashes for me within just a second or two of opening the app. Nothing I do seems to work.

Re: Update blues...

I'm in a similar boat to ya'll. My laptop stays at my desk most the time. My digital piano (Yamaha P115) is in the living room and there isn't a convenient place to nearby set my laptop. That's the appeal of the iPad: having it right in front of me. The bug I've noticed is that when I plug in I'll h...

Re: Use IPad rather than Computer

I'm also using the Yamaha p115. It would be great to be able to hear app audio inside my headphones or played back on the piano speakers rather than the iPad itself. Is this an option?
