Hello,

As some people may have success, the keystation was not tested on Android systems. Windows/IOS tablets and phones should be compatible. When you say you can't connect, what do you mean? Physically or the Galaxy does not recognize the controller? Thank you.

Sorry, I was away for a few days and couldn't answer.
Android does not recognize the keyboard as an input device, i.e. it does not propose any apps to be connected to the keyboard. However at least the keyboard buttons light up. This is different from my old Android 2.3 phone, where nothing happens at all.

I also face the problem. 2 days ago, i bought the keystation mini 32, trying to connect to my LG G2 android phone. Surprisingly , it works well on the salesperson's Samsung NOTE 1, but it can't be recognized by LG G2.
I also tried other brand's external USB midi controller by OTG on LG G2, and they could be recognized.

i am looking for the solution....

Strange that things should work on Note 1 but not on Note 3 ...
Can you ask the salesperson whether any additional software is installed?

Someone has switched this thread to "answered" state, but actually it is *not* answered from my perspective. How can it be that Galaxy Note 1 works but Note 3 does not?

My LG G2 also doesn't work with Keystation Mini 32. The device is not recognized by system.
While Alesis keyboard does.
Please help to find a solution.

...Same here. M-Audio Keystation Mini32 worked great with my Samsung Galaxy S3. Just switched to S5. I can see the Keystation Power Up, but no MIDI generated using an OTG and a standard USB cable. Not sure what's happening, but I'm pretty sure that Android may have dropped USB support for MIDI devices. Bummer.

As I reported, another manufacturer's MIDI USB keyboard works well with the same phone. So the problem is in M-Audio, not Android.
Looking forward for a solution from M-Audio.

Not working with Android and Caustic3. The android system never asks for USB permssion to connect and no midi signal is shown on caustic.

Sending the keystation back and getting a different keyboard seem to be the best answer!

Does the updated version (MkII, black) work with Android 4.4, anyone?

I'm currently running Android 4.4.4 on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Was able to get both my Akai LPK25 and LPD8 recognized by the smartphone. But not the M-Audio Keystation Mini 32 (2014). It lights up but when connected, there's no popup dialog asking what app to use. "USB Device Data" and "USB MIDI Monitor" apps return no information.

I have no such problems with my Note 3 running on A4.4.2, connecting with M-Audio Axiom 25. Both, Grand Piano Pro and Caustic work fine (but for latency, of course).

My Keystation Mini 32 arrived yesterday and I was hoping to use it with Caustic on a Samsung Galaxy tablet - no joy. The Mini powers up OK but is not recognised by the tablet as a Midi input device. I tried it on a Galaxy S5 phone too - same result.

It works fine with Caustic running on a PC, but that wasn't what I wanted.

This must simply be a driver issue - can't you provide an Android interface, M-Studio?

I have just bought this keyboard and tested it with official OS on Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note Edge, and it doesn't work. But it works on unofficial Android (Nameless Rom) on Galxy S3, therefore the probem is Samsung version of Android, not generally Android. We should ask for support from Samsung.

With Aquaris bq x2 pro It hangs the whole phone and it reboots. The keyboard lights up.
