      The Android platform has some limitations when it comes to real-time MIDI, which is why you don’t see many music applications on that platform compared to the iPad.

        In other words, you’re not going to do it, or you’re not sure yet?

        Regardless, laptops do not have such limitations…and not everybody is going to go get an iOS tablet simply for this functionality.

    Wilson, unless there is some dramatic change in the Android platform and based on my knowledge of the issues, I would not expect it. Also understand that this app is not made by Casio, we are utilizing the MIDI Designer Platform to create something specific for our products. If MIDI Designer is expanded to other platforms we’d love it.

    We have a Data Editor for Mac and PC already. This data editor does provide access to every parameter that the iPad offers and more. However the iPad application due to its touch screen is more than just an editor. It is a Performance tool that would be difficult to reproduce using a traditional computer and mouse.

      Yes, I understand, and that’s why I think it’d be great if you made the same tool at least for laptops. Clearly, Windows, MacOS, and Linux are all capable of supporting touch screens and supporting MIDI response times adequately.

      Don’t get me wrong, I realize it’s just up to you as a private endeavor. I’m not suggesting you owe me, or anyone, anything whatsoever. It’s great you’ve done this; it just doesn’t, by itself, justify me buying an iOS tablet, so I’ll unlikely be a customer.
