MobileSheets with Roland FP-90
#21
Hi Mike,

I pull up this topic, because I face(d) similar problems. I own a Roland FP-60 (very similar to the FP-90). While I'm currently looking for the best tool to digitze and archive all my sheets, I've come to MobileSheets(free). I'm currently testing (and probably going to buy). Also as a help for other people trying to connect and finding this thread over Google (like me).

Trying to use MobileSheets on an Samsung Tab A10 Android device and the Roland FP-60, I've figured out two ways to connect both and have MobileSheets recieving MIDI commands.

- Connecting via USB - using an OTG Adapter - works rather smooth. Connect the Android - make sure, that no device is connected over bluetooth to the Roland at the same time - and select USB within the settings. Trying to configure MIDI actions, I see a lot of commands arriving, when pressing keys or pedals. MobileSheets re-connect automatically, when I plug in the cable again.
Disadvantage: Using an OTG Adapter is not providing power to the tablet. So it is only a matter of time until the battery is empty.

- Connecting via Bluetooth is a little bit more tricky. It is not working with MS, when the android is already connected via bluetooth to the FP-60, before MobileSheets startet. But it seems to be a general problem with Android (at least with this device). So it works 90% of the time, when I close all software on the android, unpouble any exiting connection to the FP-60. Then start MobileSheets, go into MIDI settings and select bluetooth. Even when not coupled, MobileSheets automatically detect the Roland and couples it.
Then I can see MobileSheets is receiving MIDI commands to which I can assign actions...
To be honest, this is a bit annoying, while requiring a lot of clicks. While it seems to be more of an android problem there would be some features (yes, this is a feature request) really simplifying this. When I could see directly on the start page the connected bluetooth device (when there is any) with ideally a green light, when MIDI commands are recieved. So I could just look if it's working automatically - after starting MobileSheets - or if I need to decouple the bluetooth device first in Android settings. I assume others face the same problem. Maybe there are also better solutions *sigh*

But even more annoying, to get the 'go to next page function' running is, that the roland is sending a lot of MIDI commands when pressing the middle pedal. Typical:
66, 127
66, 127
66, 127
66, 127
66, 0
66, 0
66, 0

but it can differ. So, when I configure just 66,127 as trigger for the page action, it always flips several pages instantly. If I configure 66, 127 followed by 66,0 (as hinted by you) it works better, but very often I have to tip the pedal twice or also accidentially two pages are flipped. In this way it is not usable *sigh*
Maybe you can give me another hint about what to do? Ideally would be a configuration with a waiting time, before an action is triggered again. So that I can configure for example an action with 66,127 and that after a page flip for about 2 seconds no second page flip can be done.

I really hope, you can help me with this problem. I really would like to have it solved, before finally deciding for MobileSheets to store all of my 1000 sheets...

Thanks,
Kai
