I’ve recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S23 as my aging OnePlus 7 is starting to fail me .
Seeing as there were multiple reports of USB MIDI connection issues with Android, i obviously went ahead and tested the Galaxy S23 as well and i have some findings to report . First off, some details.
Running Android 12
USB MIDI works fine with a USB 3.2 Typ-C (Gen 2, 10 Gbps) C to C cable
@Sandroid Sorry that you’re having issues with your phone and Mini. I believe this feature is not officially documented and we do not test it internally. There are just too many mobile phone configurations out there to support all cases. Therefore, I will close the bug report as we will not invest in fixing it, sorry about this one. On the bright side, we are looking of ways to improve the Note input functionality for Mini.
No worries, for me personally it’s not a big deal, since i use actual midi gear instead of phones. But i figured i’d open a bug report since this has come up a couple times in various discussions here on the forum as well as on the discord.
So it’s more about having a detailed post that we can refer to in the future.
I totally understand that. The Android ecosystem is way too fragemented to support it consistently .
If this comes up more in the future, i might start a post with a list of devices that work and the ones we know do not.
