Hi - thanks for helping out!
I didn’t actually think to try the Emulator - I’ll try that in a bit - great idea.
For the record, I can confirm that my second-hand Nexus 5X by LG reports the MIDI service! Unfortunately, the device has a USB-C port, so I need to get an adaptor before I can test it with external MIDI hardware
It seems that not all Marshmallow devices are equal; I suspect that for many of the cheaper ones, the USB connector might not be capable of acting as a host, and therefore the MIDI service won’t be enabled. This is a bit of a minefield for Android developers and users wanting to work with MIDI!
Anyhow, I think it’d be useful if other Juce Android developers could add their devices to this thread, on which they’ve found Juce MIDi to work. Might be a useful resource.
I’d be really interested to know if Chromebooks (with Android capability) support MIDI devices, for example…
Best to all,
