Trying to play some keys but don't get any response from your device? :(
First thing to check is if Soundtrap has recognized your MIDI-keyboard. To do so,
go to SETTINGS in the studio, click MIDI Settings
Here you should select the keyboard you're connecting in the menu that pops up.
If it doesn't show up in the menu, check that the cable is properly connected and/or try another USB port.
NOTE: For best performance and compatibility we recommend using the latest Chrome browser.
Recently I bought a M-Audio Keystation 61. It didn't work no matter what solution was tried. whenever I opened the midi settings, it would only load forever. I found after opening Firefox that sound trap required chrome browser for the midi piano to be found. turns out I the only way for my midi piano to work was to open up sound trap through the chrome browser. It now works perfectly fine.
Vanja, I'm having a problem with my students chromebooks, every time I go to settings, midi, it says "upgrade browser...midi needs an itty bitty upgrade. Mind upgrading your browser". Now I've upgraded the version of chrome and it still isn't working, same issue. Weird thing is that MY chromebook, which has the same version of chrome, works with midi and midi keyboards. The only difference is my chromebook model is a model 11 g5 and my students are a model 11 g3. Also, when I use other keyboard apps on my chromebook they recognize the midi keyboard when I plug it in but again, on my student's chromebooks, on the same app that works on my computer, the midi keyboard is not detected.
Do midi keyboards work with soundtrap on android, I recently bought a otg cable to connect with my huawei p10 and I can't get it to work with soundtrap, but it works fine with other apps. I've tried to use the midi-settings button but it only says I need to upgrade my browser and then does nothing.
We have found that on Windows 10 Microsoft Edge will not recognise the midi keyboard, but it all works on Chrome.
