Needs Video Recording


This app is great for recording audio, but it would be nice if video could be recorded too. That way a full performance could be shared. Yamaha’s My Recorder app has this functionality, but it doesn’t support Midi to Audio Playback; you can only hear audio playback if you are still connected to your keyboard. It would be great if they could combine these apps so that we can record video and keyboard input and replay them both without needing the keyboard.

Comically outdated app

Jim C. S.

This app hasn't been updated in over four years; it is apparently completely unsupported by Yamaha US. Ironically, there is a frequently updated version of this in the Japanese App Store that is unavailable in the US. That supports all of the new Yamaha hardware I recently purchased; this version does not.

Forced to log in via facebook or Twitter


There is no way to use this app without logging in thru social media. I should be able to create and save midi recordings without connecting to Facebook.
