I downloaded the beta version to my Galaxy Tab A, but the program isnt recognizing my Casio CTK-3200. Any advice? And any suggestions for which USB cable I should use to connect? I ordered a micro-USB to B type cable from Amazon, but that might be the issue. Thanks for any suggestions!

You'll need to be sure the cable you use is specifically an On-The-Go (OTG) cable. I've used my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 with an OTG cable to connect to my small Yamaha PSR-E343.

The USB-To-Host port on your keyboard also needs to be "USB MIDI Class Compliant." Many Yamaha keyboards are not, including the digital piano I use with Playground Sessions (with which I'm using a Windows 7 computer). I'm not as familiar with the Casio keyboards, but the web page for your CTK-3200 indicates that it is, so you're in luck there.

My bet is on the OTG cable.

Connected Android App with Privia PX-750 using USB OTG Cable on Samsung Galaxy Tab A running Marshmallow 6.0.1. When I play the keys on the piano with the app, the audio is played on the Tablet instead. Anyway to get the audio to remain played on the Piano?

Any update on when older versions of android will be supported? I have a Galaxy View and marshmellow is not supported on it.

Is the android app going to be placed on the play store when the bugs get worked out?

There will be no updates to the Android beta for a while. I will post the same response as I posted elsewhere in the forum.


On Memorial Day, our head of technology tragically passed away trying to save a young girl from drowning in a river in Utah. We are working to hire a new developer to fill in for him. It is an important role so it's going to take some time to find the right replacement. Our expectation is it's also going to take the new developer (or team of developers) to get familiar enough with the entire program before we start to push new builds to fix bugs and add new features.

Does anyone know if this works with Amazon Fire tablets? I am looking into a budget tablet to use with playground sessions. I currently prop my laptop up on my sheet music holder, which puts the screen at a weird angle for reading the sheet music.

I'd also be curious if anyone knows if there are vast differences between the ipad version and android version? I don't really want to spend as much as ipads are, but if the experience is superior, I'd at least consider it.

I don't know how powerful the Amazon Fire tablets are. I know the app takes a bit of power to run without latency. Hopefully someone with a Fire Tablet can chime in and say. I have a Samsung Tab S2 that works OK, but doesn't work with my specific digital piano (I had to use a newer 61 key PSR-E353 budget synth that does work to test the Android App). I can say that the Samsung Tab S2 8 inch, aside from not recognizing my older digital piano, works reasonably well, with the limitations of the current app on tablets isn't up to the full power of the Desktop / Laptop app.
