Yousician works with acoustic and electric pianos, as well as MIDI keyboards, without a built in sound modules. We recommend a piano with at least 61 keys to make the most out of Yousician.
If you are having problems with recognition, please go through the following steps to troubleshoot:
- Make sure the keys are recognized on the calibration screen. If your piano is tuned to a different tuning, unfortunately Yousician might not recognize you play.
- Check that the app volume or background noise is not too loud. Try connecting wired headphones, without a built in microphone, to your device.
- Make sure you have allowed Yousician to access your device microphone:
- Double check your piano set up.
- Check Advanced audio settings option under Game settings tab. Ensure your device microphone is highlighted green under Input device.
- For Android devices, try re-calibrating audio. You can also lower the buffer size and change audio engines to Android Audio. The options are available under Advanced settings in Game settings tab.
- If you are using a MIDI connection, check that it is chosen as Input device. You can do so from the Advanced audio settings option in the Game settings tab.
- Try turning off effects on your keyboard as these can affect the recognition; please use as clear sound as you can to get the best recognition.
- Check your PC/Mac microphone input as it could be too low.
