étape 1

Go to one of the two following browsers: Google Chrome or Opéra (connecting your piano to the platform will not work on other browsers).

étape 2

When you arrive for the first time on the learning interface of La Touche Musicale, you must allow the browser to connect your midi devices so that your piano can be recognized by the platform.

étape 3

Make sure your digital piano is equipped with:

- a " MIDI " (circular) connection.

– or a "USB" connection (square).

Some models may have both connections. These connectors are often located on the back of your piano, as in the following example:

étape 4

Choose your cable according to the connection of your piano: "MIDI" or "USB", but also according to the connection of your smartphone or tablet (micro-USB, USB-C, ...). Let's start with those of the piano :

Also make sure you have a cable with the right connection for your smartphone / tablet (micro-USB, USB-C, ...).

Two choices are available to you: 

1) You choose a "classic" MIDI cable with a USB plug (like the ones mentioned above) + an adapter that will allow you to connect it to your device.

⚠️ Important: iOS systems (iPhone and iPad) automatically block the piano connection. To get around this problem, we will develop a mobile app that allows you to connect your piano to any device. While waiting for its development, we advise you to go to La Touche Musicale from an Android device or a computer (Windows, Mac or Linux). 

étape 5

Connect the " MIDI " connector of the cable to the " MIDI " jack of your piano (or " USB " depending on your piano model), taking care to connect the " IN " connector of the cable to the " OUT " jack of your piano, or conversely, the " OUT " connector of the cable to the " IN " jack of your piano:

étape 6

Finally, plug your cable into the port of your smartphone/tablet (via the adapter or the adapted cable).

étape 7

Go to the learning interface of the app: press a key on your piano, the same key lights up on the virtual piano on the screen, you are well connected to the application! You can now use the interactive game modes and learn at your own pace.
