Micro Key Player: As I have limited space in my house, I have bought a Korg Microkey 61 and practice playing piano with an android device. But all the piano apps available in Google Play are not optimized for everyday usb keyboard use. There is always the ask permission and connection problem. And the latency is too much for decent play. After using an existing app for a few weeks, I give up and decide to make my own. I have created a convenient app where I can turn on and practice instantly with 3 sampled piano sound from Korg, Yamaha and Roland and optional 128 instruments sound module and user download soundfont. I am sharing it for free and hope you have many hours having fun.

Features:
- play music with your android device and external keyboard with no latency lag. App is designed to be real time to key pressed. I am surprised existing apps could not match what i created.
- 3 piano sound sampled from my favorite Korg, Roland and Yamaha piano.
- designed for quick turn-on-and-use. Remember your usb connection and device permission.
- auto close after inactive for 3 min
- respond to sustain pedal input
- cost: free

System requirements:
- android 3.1 and up phone or tablet
- OTG cable. About $1 at Amazon
- usb midi keyboard or digital piano

For support, please post at Celestial Piano forum at http://celestialpiano.blogspot.sg/p/forum.html My other app includes volca midi player (good for beginner without music theory to play piano) and microvolcakeys (for sending midi note to synthesiser).

ps. Just added sound module 128 instruments to the app as a free add on. It is from a soundfont file.

How the add-on sound module work?
1. Tap sound module on upper right corner in the keyboard app
2. It will open sound module if already install, otherwise it directs you to sound module goggle play page
3. Select the instrument you like, a sample sound is play
4. Tap back button and start playing on your keyboard :)

Notice:
It is found that certain device auto activates the phone headset. If it happens to you, please post on the forum. Please attached a headset or external/BT speaker to listen to the sound. Known to happen to iRig Keys etc.

Whats new

    - sustain sound responds to physical sustain pedal
    - add sustain in menu for user without sustain pedal

Cool! Didn't really expect this to work but true enough you just plug the keyboard into the phone using a USB adaptor. Light on keyboard should come on and then it works as expected.

Nils Halvard Lunde

Very promising. As you said, this is the only app with decent response time. But the notes are just turned on, never off, when I play from m-audio axion 61, and my korg microkey does nothing. Galaxy s5 and Galaxy tab s 8.4. The app works with both headset and speakers, but the problem is it works as if the sustain pedal was depressed all the time.

Needs a record to midi function

Влад Працюк

lol what a mess on your table)))

Rose Rodent

Doesn't do anything Sorry, no go with my midi controller despite universal compatibility USB

A Google User

awesome really handy app for someone new to midi keyboards

Eeman Alipour

Thank you friend! Good job. I have a korg mickrokey 25 and now using you app very successfully.

Darren Josiah

Nicely done! I have a Korg MicroKEY too, and I'm rather impressed by the sound. How about adding in a sustain button via the use of MOD/PITCH wheel? :) Oh yes - And the preset for Yamaha is actually starting at A# and not C. You might want to hit that up..!

Deen Fredericks

Giving you props I haven't tried it yet. But you deserve stars none the less. The fact that iRig seems oblivious to android users and the ongoing concern for free after purchase software is pathetic. Well done buddy

Peter Fuchs

Simple but good.

Erin Colocado

It doesn't play I tried it but doesn't play at all. Please fix

Farah Hernandez

I love it FYI like to see you again

Triad Andrew

limited polyphony Seems like max of 6 simultaneous keys and no more

Martin Nali

It works I like it because it actually works. I don't have a sustain pedal so I cannot control the sustain of the notes and they cut off after a couple seconds. Given it's simplicity I wouldn't expect more. Keep up the good work! (Nexus 5 with M-Audio Keystation 49e)

John Macie

Thank you for your great MIDI keyboard, It works well!

Ember Leona

Doesn't work with cheap USB midi from ebay No sound. App crashes with sound module will uninstall and try it one more time.

Kalen Twedt

Awesome app! Worked instantly. PnP, baby! The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 was the way it handled the samples. No fading, just a definitive ON or OFF.

Chris Wilson

Input and sound decay issues Used on Xperia Z2, the sound wont decay when I release the keys (Maudio keystation 49e), also it crackles and plays random pitches when I press the same key sometimes!

Rahul Gawale

Not able to record... plz tell how to get midi file...

Simon Friis Vindum

I'm using an M-Audio Keystation 49e keyboard and the app does not detect key releases.

George Marshall

Couldn't get any response on my Samsung Tab S nor HTC - DNA cellphone. Very disappointed Reply: Yes I tried headphones. No sound

Allan Mitch

No sound from LG G2 Disappointed. When choosing a soundfont and program I get a squeek but when trying my Alesis QX25 w my LG G2, no sound. I tried a headset, no sound.

Gleb Lebedev

It's OK but annoying The app reacts on any USB device connected to the phone. Really annoying. I have to delete it because of it.

Pius-Shaun Warlimont

Cool Awesome

Steve Meiers

Ads, very sad. This might be a nice app if not for the ads. I could get it to play using my Wii keyboard and a generic MIDI adapter via OTG-USB. Thus 3, but latency and ads, constant web ads. Uninstalling.

arnol rebs

Much better if can use sustain pedal on my controller..ty

Ramin Jafari

Very Good !!!

Good apps my friend.I used YOGA 8 2 and Korg microkey 61. Please add some sustain function. THANK YOU^_^

Yory Howard

My phone crashed repeatedly Installed it, and my galaxy note 5 crashed three times...every time my phone restarted the app kept popping up like some kind of virus....had to Uninstall it so my phone could function ?

Sandra Demas

Daw midi Yoh can I use this as a midi for fl studio or is it just for keyboards

Nathan Livarchuk

Nice Loved it works perfectly

Jennifer Gayton

Ist is the tineyest thing ever

Luke Jagger

Like it Works to an extent on my EMU, but I can't get additional soundfont to work. Also, volume is too low, even when cranked right up on my Nexus 9.

johnny chui

Works well for my Roland A49 midi keyboard. But have to install Midi Commander App first, then set Cable Id from within, then go ahead with Midi Keyboard App. Otherwise, this App cannot detect my keyboard. Is it true?

Timothy T.

Works, but not enjoyable Hardly any sustain to the notes, clicking noise with each note, and headphone output disabled so it forces you to use your devices speaker. Doesn't use keyboard's MOD or Pitch wheels.
