The VPC-1 has no built in sounds. It is strictly a controller.

Not sure why you expect this app that "allows Kawai digital piano owners to explore the musical instrument sounds available within their piano" to work on an instrument without musical instrument sounds within it.

Because a) I'm always looking for new apps to play with (hence the frowny face), and b) from the name (Sound Museum) my first thought was that it perhaps was something like Sampletank - that is something that provides sounds.

Also, the OP said that it works with all Kawai digital pianos. Not true, as it turns out. One only finds that out after clicking on the link. I just thought that I'd clarify that by posting. <shrug>

Bert, as Jay notes, this app was developed for Kawai DPs with built-in sounds, and does not therefore support the VPC1, I'm afraid.

I'm curious though, what kind of functionality would you like to see in an app geared towards the VPC1?

Kind regards,
James

James - I could see a lot of utility in an iOS VPC Editor app which connects to a VPC2 via Bluetooth. The VPC2 would of course have Bluetooth MIDI and a music stand well-suited to hold an iPad Pro 12.9...

Hello James,

I see the Kawai link refers to an itunes link for downloading the appl and while such apps are often pNp, since it says Kawai has released this new appl, is there or will there be any Kawai doc - even just a basic couple 1 or 2 pages of overview & use guide - that allows a potential user to see the parameters / options for making it work before actually trying to make it work.

As a happy new MP7 owner, an appl that provides visual handling of the plethora of sounds available may well be very useful but, for instance, if the bluetooth interface between DP and appl is required rather than optional, is not something I would need or use...... yeah, I know, I am an old school old guy who generally likes to look before leaping.

Regards,

-drew

Huh, this is interesting. Not to hijack the thread, but this doesn't happen to be an Android offering as well? I'm not a member of the Apple walled garden...

JoeT, my mistake - the app does actually support the ES100, it's just not listed as a compatible device in the AppStore description text. I'll correct this shortly.

Thank you Mistaya. I'll raise this topic with the app development team and ask them to check that the region availability. It's a free app, so there's no reason why it shouldn't be available in all markets.

One thing you may wish to try is changing 'iPad Only' to 'iPhone Only' in the AppStore. Again, we will double check this point to ensure that the app appears regardless of the iOS device.

Kind regards,
James

Just received the Quicco mi.1 today from Thomann - looking forward to trying out this app (and many others!).

Nice! wink

I believe the mi.1 should ship with the latest firmware, but it maybe worth double-checking just in case:

I emailed Kawai a few months ago about the Virtual Technician app and whether it would be available on Android. They said it wouldn't be, so I would assume it would be the same with this one.

Hi Maartin

Please do let us know how you get on with the Quicco mi.1.it would be most helpful to know If there are any bugs or errors when connecting the device or delays in communication etc?. I understand Thomann seem to be the only dealer selling the Quicco mi.1 as I can't find anyone in the UK who has it.

Regards
:-)

Stephen,

Its working really well so far. No trouble setting it up, just followed the instructions and updated the FW as per James post above. Tried in both directions and seemed to work perfectly. Latency seemed ok but I've nothing to compare it with as this is the first time I've tried midi with my ca97.

James,

It brought a huge smile to my face when I heard the demo song for the SK-Concert Grand. Sounds much better than on the you know what wink
