MIDI on Android? It only connects as a typing keyboard... (and doesn't work)

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 running Android 8.0.0. Morph pairs with the phone, but is only recognized as a keyboard (and doesn’t work). The recommended apps in your documentation, MIDI Device Scan and USB MIDI Monitor, do not recognize the Morph no matter how many times I pair and unpair the Morph with the system bluetooth. The Android OS only seems to see it as a keyboard…

Is there a special setting that needs to set in the Sensel app before MIDI pairing with Android can happen? Your documentation is very sparse and help is appreciated.


Hello, thank you for contacting us. Yes, some Android devices (like the Samsung devices) do not appear to support our class compliant MIDI. We are looking into possible work arounds and causes.
