Korg TR

Hello everyone. I hope someone out there can help me, otherwuse my purchase is useless. It's a shame because I love this app. I am trying to connect my Korg tr88 to Caustic installed in my Galaxy tab note10.1. Unfortunately, it does not get any input. I tried connecting to my laptop and all is fine. but nothing happens on the tablet. Any thoughts on that? Thank you guys!!!

Did you use the same USB jack

Did you use the same USB jack of the keyboard for the tablet as for the computer? Many keyboards have a USB host jack, where you can plug an USB stick for recording or saving/loading songs/presets, there you also can plug a phone/tablet (as a file storage) but this is the wrong data direction. You must use the other USB jack and have an USB OTG adapter for the tablet.

Midi connections on Android

Midi connections on Android devices are very subjective, due to the diversity of hardware- that being the issue behind Caustic's trial app, since they can't guarantee the audio will work on whatever given Android tablet/smartphone. You may want to research another app for midi connections, I'm sorry to say. There might also be an issue with Korg TR-88's midi capacity, but then, all my Caustic midi stuff has been strictly between iOS and a Samson Carbon 61.

For a MIDI controller to be

For a MIDI controller to be recognized by Android it needs to be "USB class-compliant", in other words it doesn't require a driver. If you can connect to software with your keyboard on a Windows or Mac machine WITHOUT first loading a driver, then it will be usable as a MIDI controller on an Android device. If you must load a driver for MIDI functionality in WIndows or Max there is no chance that device will work under Android unless driver-like code for your specific keyboard is included in the app (unlikely). 

If your keyboard IS USB class-compliant, then all you should need is an OTG adapter.
