One of the biggest problem people encounter with Roland Digital Pianos is the unreliable Bluetooth connection to their software apps like Piano Designer 2. After encountering problems with errors and unreliable connections, I finally found a fix! It requires following a series of steps, which if you follow exactly, you can guaranteed a connection to Piano Designer 2 (from your Roland Digital Piano like the HP603 or HP series and LX series).

Follow EXACTLY all the steps in the video (you can skip the beginning steps if you are connecting for the first time):



NOTE: The key is to try to pair within the app from a fresh connection, which requires doing series of forgetting previous Bluetooth connections, turning off bluetooth from Settings and from within the Piano Designer Apps, and turning off and on the Roland Digital Piano. Video shows the exact steps to do so you are guaranteed a connection. Hurray! Solved the biggest problem with Roland bluetooth connection to their apps.

I agree regular Bluetooth can be really wonky.

But I swear by Korg's Bluetooth MIDI Connect app (Windows, MacOS and iOS). I have two Roland keyboard's and I never have problems connecting anymore. I just start it at the beginning of a session and everything works. It's much better and simpler than mucking around in the OS.

I don't seem to have this issue with the latest iPad. I do remember having to reset the bluetooth connection with a slightly older iPad a few times similar to this video, but now I can connect reliably to PD 2 every time without having to go through that procedure.
