Akai Synthstation app doesn't work on ios 9.3

After making an IOS 9.3 update on my iPad 3, the Synthstation app stopped working. I knew it will finally happen someday. It's sad you do not support this synth app. It's really great on the stage and also in the studio. I don't know as much about the programming for ios but is it so difficult to make it work on newer systems? It worked great on IOS 9.0.

    Hi,

    Sorry you are having trouble with that.

    The Synthstation app was fully support up to iOS 6.1.3, so i can't guarantee it will work on later versions of iOS. This is going to get more unlikely as the iOS versions progress.

    I'm not sure if there are any plans to update the app but I will be happy to submit a feature request for you!

    Let me know if you have any questions!
    • Corey, with all due respect, the Synthstation app. has not been updated in nearly 5 years. I think it is disingenuous to say that you would be submitting a feature request. That just gives end-users a false sense of hope. More sage advice would be to tell them that if they need to use the app. to use it on a dedicated IOS device that will not be upgraded to a newer version of IOS.

  • I've just experienced this as well. It's very frustrating to have purchased the keyboard and now, it won't work with the app.

    I've read that there is something with iOS9 that disallows the synth station to work with the app but the keyboard still works with Garageband and iMini.....why can't synth station be updated similarly?

    if akai's response is "well at least be happy you can still use it with garageband" or " well you can use the USB input w/a camera adaptor".....I'm very disappointed. The whole reason I bought the keyboard was so I wouldn't have to deal with the USB/Camera adaptor mickey mouse wiring mess.....

    every other app on my iPad gets regular updates......why can Synthstation follow?? Very disappointed with Akai right now!
