iPad Screenshots


Use the Apple iPad to display and edit the real-time performance parameters of your Roland BK-9 Backing Keyboard.
With the BK-9 Performance Editor, you can use your iPad to directly access the BK-9’s real-time performance parameters as you play the keyboard. Via the iPad’s graphic display and large touchscreen, you have quick and convenient control of a wide selection of parameters, including tone editing, part mixing, effects, and much more. Designed for use alongside the keyboard’s own dual display system and extensive onboard controls, the BK-9 Performance Editor gives you a powerful tool for enhancing your BK-9 experience while performing, practicing, and composing.
Communication between the BK-9 and iPad requires either of the following:
- Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (made by Apple Inc.) and a standard USB cable (Type-A male to Type-B male, readily available at retailers that sell computer accessories)
- Roland WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter (connected to the BK-9) and a wireless LAN access point with an Internet connection.
- BK-9 Version 1.06 or later (available as a free download from the Roland website) is required in order to use this app with the BK-9.

BlueTooth LE

I think this app should do away with the camera kit and go With Bluetooth LE for wireless control. It does not seem to list it under MIDI devices.

How about any BK?

How hard would it be to alter your app to include BK 5s, BK-7m? Thank u

Needs Lyrics Viewer app...

This program needs the Lyrics Viewer app rolled into it. Currently there is no way to display embedded lyrics on an iPad when the Lyrics Viewer was removed from the App Store. It still works fine BTW, it’s only discontinued.

It seems strange that the ONLY way to display lyrics on the BK series was discontinued while the editor for the discontinued BK-9’s editor is still available. PLEASE either re-release the Lyrics Viewer or add it’s code to the BK Partner and BK-9 Editor apps.
