    The Montage deserves to have an app like this, just like the motif.
  • S90 not happening

    By Hk_mahopac
    Doesn't seem to be very effective and support is either non existent or too hard to figure out.

    Asked for help over a week ago ,got a number but no reply. Cannot use app on mox6, keep getting time out error. The mox is being used as a USB audio interface and tried using I midi and I dock interface , no action. Can usb and midi be used at the same time,will app only work with the yamaha midi interface? Looks like a useful tool but without tech support its useless. I

  • Much needed and appreciated app, but...

    Update: Can't believe there's no one else using/commenting on this "potentially" great app! Still can't use it with my S90ES. Out of hopeful excitement, I admit I misread the supported keyboards - I thought it said S90 ES, instead of XS. I don't know if this means that there will not be a version that supports the ES, but I have to believe that there's a bigger user ES user base. Yamaha, can we get this app for the S90 ES? Please?
