36-key keyboard 

MIDI Cable: You can also connect your phone to a MIDI-enabled keyboard for advanced songs and a wider range of notes. 

With a direct MIDI connection, you will be able to play on your MIDI keyboard and get accurate scoring and feedback from Piano Marvel. There are a few different connection options here that we will cover. The best connection option will depend on the connection options that your digital piano/keyboard provides. 

If your piano has a “Host” connection you can connect an iPhone or iPad to your piano using one of these methods.

Use a dedicated USB Host to lightning cable

This option is simple and cost-effective. However, you will not be able to charge your iPhone or iPad while you are using this connection.

Use a USB A/B cable (also known as a printer cable) with an adaptor for your phone’s lightning connection port. 

This option requires a cable and an adaptor and does cost more. The advantage to this connection method is that you will be able to charge your iPhone or iPad while you are using this configuration. 

If your piano has a MIDI out connection, you can use a MIDI Interface Cable with an adaptor for your phone’s lightning connection port.
