Roland FP-10 bluetooth and Synthesia app

Trouble with Synthesia, your keyboard, or adapter? Think you found a bug?
When describing problems, always mention your OS and game version (shown at the bottom of the title screen).
  • If your keyboard has USB or MIDI ports, there is a tremendously high chance (>99%) it will work with Synthesia. See what you'll need on the keyboards page.
  • If you have a Logitech webcam and can't get your keyboard/adapter to work, see this post.

i just purchased a Roland FP-10 piano. (Also purchased the key for Synthesia ;) )

My problem is that i cant pair the FP-10 with the synthesia app, it doesnt show the FP-10 in the input device list under settings.

so far, i used Synthesia with my Ubuntu laptop via USB AB cable, and
with my android phone also via cable.

Now that my piano has Bluetooth, id like to use it that way.

Did anybody have the same issue? Or has anybody a how to for this?

My phone is Google Pixel 3 with android 10, if it matters.


ps: roland stock app works via bluetooth. also Pixel3 sees the FP10 as a bluetooth device, and can connect to it.

For the developers, is it useful? ... ng04_W.pdf

Try this:

1. In Synthesia, on the Settings screen: choose "Android M MIDI" from the list at the top.
2. Swipe the app completely closed.
3. Download this free utility app.
4. Pair with your FP-10 in the utility.
5. Launch Synthesia and hopefully the FP-10 will be in the list.
