What MIDI keyboards and devices work with Soundtrap?




  • Christopher Bueker

    Hi Stefan, thanks for posting the information. I am working with a Chromebook to produce music and I really like SoundTrap. What kind of MIDI usb cable do I need for my Chromebook and SoundTrap to recognize my MIDI keyboard? I am looking at Roland UM-ONE MK2 USB MIDI Interface. Will this connector work with my Chromebook and SoundTrap? I appreciate any assistance. Thank you.

    Hi Christopher,
    Yes that will work great if your MIDI keyboard only has those old school MIDI outputs. If it's a newer model, you can probably use a a cheaper USB to micro-USB or just a normal USB cable depending on what ports you have on your keyboard. Have a peek around the back and see what you can find, or if you're unsure, check your manual or Google the keyboard model and check which ports it has.
    Good Luck! :)

    HI Stefan, great. Thank you. Yes, my MIDI keyboard is the old school kind. Thank you.

    I'm pretty new to MIDI, but noticed when I import a drum midi file the drum pieces change. Can I see a mapping of what channels are what instruments in SoundTrap, if this makes sense. I have a software that can change the channels on the export file so they can work in SoundTrap, I just don't know the channels that SoundTrap uses for each drum piece. Thanks.

    Stefan, I received my Roland UM-ONE MK2 USB MIDI Interface in the mail. It was super easy to hook up and I am now recording with it. My first track is now produced and friends on my social media page loved my track. Thank you for the support.
    Alex, I am not sure.

    Does it work with the launchkey mini

    Thinking of getting it but only have a chromebook wondering if it would work on it or not any information helps.

    The piano keys works with Soundtrap, but not the pads. The LaunchKey Mini does not work with Chromebook unfortunately.

    Best regards,

    'MIDI settings' option does not open on my Chromebook. I get a 'upgrade your browser' message. Chromebook is 100% updated. Using a LPK25 (or trying to!).

    Does soundtrap work with the Akai Professional MPK Mini MKII

    Hi, is a Soundtrap premium account needed to use a USB MIDI keyboard?

  • Richardstuartgregory

    Are there plans to enable midi controllers in the mobile app...possibly via bluetooth (e.g. Roli Seaboard) like Groovebox?

  • Evan Witt

    Like commenter Alan Maddrell above me, I have a new (and updated) chromebook, but SoundTrap keeps telling me that I can't access MIDI settings without getting my browser updated (which it already is).

    Will Maschine MK2's work on Chromebooks and Soundtrap in the future?
