Broken functionality for years

Yamaha has been aware of the issue where iOS users can’t login to the app for 3 years now. Still no fix. This is unacceptable as it ruins the functionality of the device for mobile users on a portable keyboard. The rest of the app is okay. Scrolling through local presets is kind of annoying in the tile format. It would be nice to see/adjust the parameter values in the app for each preset as well. I would love the ability to share presets if they ever fix the login issue but after 3 years I don’t think it’s going to happen.

Useless. Signup impossible.

What everyone else is saying is true. Current iPad, current OS as of 22 August 2021. It’s impossible to create an account, either through the Soundmodo app, or through mobile Safari. I keep getting an “invalid username/password” error when I try to sign up. When I try to sign in using the same credentials I entered to register my Yamaha devices, the app and website both kick me back out to the “create new account” screen.

I’d be interested to know exactly how Yamaha has made this work on any of their test iOS devices. Or if they ever have. I don’t see how they could’ve.

I’d be interested to know how other users have managed to connect. Many seem to be able to.

I’d be interested to know how a company that manufactures some high-end synths and keyboards manages to release such an appallingly infuriating app, without any sense of shame at their abject failure to make it even slightly functional on the VERY FIRST STEP.

This is a useless app. Don’t bother.

A terrible idea executed poorly

This app is the worst.

Nearly every other digital synth company allows users to privately store patches on their local computer. Why Yamaha requires users to sign up for some poorly attempted social network I do not understand. Why it is so hard to find MY patches, when I am constantly spammed by some featured user ‘Nicholas’? Getting the keyboard to connect requires luck. The desktop version of the application requires Google chrome. This is all bad.

The keyboards are pretty good though. I just want a normal patch management tool like Korg, Arturia, Behringer and Elektron have all managed to create.
