On an iPad Pro you have to go into Privacy Settings and set up the microphone so the jack can be used to receive data with a specific app.

What iOS are you on?

Do have anything like Settings => Privacy => Microphone => (here the app automatically shows up because it requests access to the microphone)

OK. I have not connected a keyboard through Bluetooth.

Typically there is a pairing stage.

At some point I believe you will need to tell the iPad to use the keyboard in some form of system preferences.

What software will you be using?

If Garageband, you will need to go into its preferences and choose the keyboard as well.

My iPad won't natively pair with my DP on bluetooth. I don't know why. I use the app 'midimittr' to pair via 'sources, clients'. In the music app I set the midi connection option on, and away it goes.

Try downloading Korg's "MIDI Bluetooth Connect" App from the App Store (it's free). See if you can see the keyboard from there.

Did the USB Bluetooth dongle come with a driver or utility software?

Some Bluetooth devices are not recognized unless their software is installed.

Another thing to try:
1. Update the iPad to the newest iOS.
2. In Settings - Reset Everything (option is at the bottom)

Quick research.... it appears that you have to have an app installed which supports Bluetooth MIDI.

It is not the typical pairing with Bluetooth devices.

Rather than use the operating system to set up Bluetooth with MIDI you do it through the Bluetooth MIDI software.

Watching these videos may lead you in the right direction:


This guy did it but how?




Do you or any friends speak Italian?




Your actual Bluetooth dongle may be different but the software requirement is the same (English):

I have an iPad 2. The max iOS version I could install (iOS 9) didn't have a bluetooth stack that correctly supported pairing with my ES110 (though I don't know if it's because the iOS version was the problem or the bluetooth firmware was the problem.) I was able to pair fine to my iPhone 6s which has iOS 10 and later bluetooth firmware. Obviously I don't know if this is the case for the iPad 3 but it's possible. I would make sure it's on iOS 10.

Hello Nigel,

I'm a little late to this thread, however if you have not done so already, please try following the Bluetooth MIDI connectivity guide at the following page:

http://www.kawai-global.com/support/bluetooth/

It's important to note that in iOS, the Bluetooth connection is made through the music app itself, not the main Settings app. This method is a little counter-intuitive, but it works.

Regarding OS versions, I believe Bluetooth MIDI (BLE) support was added in iOS 8, so iOS9 should also work.
I use 1st generation iPad Air which just updated itself to iOS 11, and I've never had any problems with Bluetooth MIDI - either using a Quiccosound mi.1, or the built-in Bluetooth on the ES110 or CN27/CN37.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
James
