No control over metronome

The only thing I want to use this app for does not work: controlling the metronome so I can see the BPM. I have a Kawai KDP120 and the only way to hear the metronome through the headphones when playing is to manually adjust to the speed you want without knowing the BPM. I would like to be able to control this with the app. Seems like a basic functionality. But no, when you enable the metronome on the app it plays out of your device and only your device. How stupid is that? You can control everything else on your piano with this app except for the metronome. The only reason I give this two stars is that the app seems well designed otherwise.

CA501 User

Works ok. I use it with a CA501. Annoying it doesn’t remember the previous connection so is always slow to open. The metronome control is odd in that it will sound through your device and not the piano *unless* you also have the BT audio connection active.

Had to give this 1 star

Was excited to get this app, but i am disappointed with it for two reasons.

1) Even though iOS devices have silky smooth panning and dragging. The drag behavior on the app for selecting a keyboard is just broken. It is not smooth and worst stops before you actually lift your finger or doesn’t pan at all. It is completely inconsistent. I basically had to just go back to using the screen on my piano.

2) It breaks the controls of the piano. That is, once you make certain changes on the app(like the voice), changes you make on the piano screen seem to have no effect. That is especially bad give how the app gets into modes where I can’t use it to select which piano anymore. My only option is to restart the piano. This is very broken behavior given that it is a “remote”. It should only make changes as if you changed it directly on the piano, and if you change it to something else, it should only reflect the most recent change.

Also, neither app or the piano screen reflect the changes on the other.
