I am really enjoying my new Multi-12 and have already used it live several times. I can see it being even more useful and flexible with the capabilities demonstrated in the Touch App videos. Problem is, I don't own an iPad -- I'm an Android guy, and all of my devices are Android. I don't see myself spending $300-500 for an iPad (with iOS 8, which rules out most used iPads) to get one app for one instrument I own.

Are there any plans whatsoever to port Touch App to Android? And if not, why not?

Hey, Aaron!

Apologies for the long delay in response, my friend.

We'd of course love to offer our Apps to users of all smart-devices. Besides it likely boosting instrument sales for non-iOS users, it'd more importantly let our customers enjoy their instruments more fully, as you describe above. iOS is one platform for all devices, and easy enough to update when new OS versions pop up, which is not the case with Android currently. That said, we are definitely looking into porting as many Apps as possible over to Android, but don't have a definitive ETA as of yet. There's rumor of a unified OS Google's been working on for Android, which will make creating Apps much easier for developers across all their compatible devices. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for your support as a musician and forum participant, and please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with on this end!

We're in 2017, and seemingly, only the DTX400 module is supported by Android!?

What is that excuse to wait for a unified Android OS? The guys with the bitten apple can't share apps between mobile and desktop anyway. You made a great little Android app for the 400 controller... why not let the majority of mobile users (android user base) control the 502 and other Yamaha devices, too?

Yamaha has the resources to make motorcycles, electronics, and many other things... but don't have the resources to make an app?! Hmmm... You're loosing customers on this.

I am about to order the DTX400k, as an easy and cheapest way to see if E-drums are for me... but I can't see myself spending more than that on Yamaha when it requires a bitten fruit to be used with a decent interface. If drums are for me, then I'll go Roland TD11 or up, I guess.

It does seem crazy when Samsung Tablets are so common, to not at least port it to them as a minimum.

I use my Tab S for everything including controlling Cubase and my Behringer XAIR, and the fiddly user interface and lack of a computer base GUI/editing suite made me not go back to it when I returned it with a USB port malfunction. It's almost like Yamaha released something then forgot they needed to support it afterwards, or decided not to.

The DTX Multi 12 has been out for nearly a decade and there is only just an app to make it faster to use, it just seems dismissive of half of the potential users to not have something on Android.

Super powerful piece of kit, so very versatile, but there are balls being dropped all over the place with support for it.

It's now 2018 - is there any update on this issue? You know, whether or not Yamaha is going to serve the other 86% of mobile / tablet users???

Ufff...bad bad Yamaha...Android have many devices...but many users too...and even when the incompatibility of the apps varies from a device to another...this problems are less day by day...this can´t be the excuse. Why not think as another alternative to a Windows App? it´s so difficult to many of us to program a perfect kit with the small screen of the module...I wish to have the features and addons of the TOuch App in my Android mobile or my PC...Please think in a solution!!!!!!!!

It is October of 2018. I've been waiting so patiently for Yamaha to come out with an Android app for the DTX Multi 12. Android has 70+% market share. This is a joke. I will be purchasing a Roland SPD-SX next week, and will tell all my students and fellow drummers to do the same. C'mon Yamaha :( .

87% more like :)

I note from this forum that most Apple users can't even get their iPads to work due to cabling or iOS version issues, and Yamaha - the world's largest musical instrument company - is incapable of hacking an Android app. I would suggest the reason is more internal company political than technical. (Let's face it the Mutli12 is brilliant - just needs a bit more internal memory - again Yamaha have let it rot....)

Does anybody from Yamaha read these posts?
