Kawai ES110 Bluetooth not working?

Hi all, ive just purchased a Kawai es110 and am very happy with the instrument, however whatever I try I can't seem to connect the piano to my MacBook Air 2020 or iPhone 11, the es110 does not appear in the bluetooth devices for either the phone or laptop.

Even stranger is that my android phone sees the es110 bluetooth device but has no software to record Bluetooth MIDI (I was going to use GarageBand on the iOS devices)

additionally even the audio midi setup on my MacBook doesn't see the es110.

is my instrument faulty, is there a kawai midi app available on iOS or android? The kawai website leads you to a virtual technician app from which I can tell no longer even exists?

Thanks for your time,

Hello unkownera,

Please note that on iOS, Bluetooth MIDI must be connected within the app itself, not via the main "Settings" app.

On macOS, the process is a little different.

Please refer to the following page for a step-by-step explanation:


I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
