Using MIDI keyboard with Samsung Galaxy Note 3
I'd like to use a MIDI keyboard with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The keyboard is an iRigKey Pro. The keyboard is supposed to get powered from the USB port connecting it to the phone. I got the required micro-USB to micro-USB cable but when I plug in the keyboard it doesn't get powered by the phone.
I am afraid that the micro-USB to micro-USB can only by used to charge the phone but not to power an external device, e.g. the keyboard, from the phone.
PS: The MIDI keyboard works fine from the computer so the issue somehow is phone specific...

Re: Using MIDI keyboard with Samsung Galaxy Note 3
I have an E-MU Xboard 25 Midi keyboard.
Up until reading this thread I never thought to try it on the Note 3.
I downloaded some free music APP, plugged in the keyboard and it worked straight off no problem.
There is a 200ms delay between pressing the key and hearing the note which renders it useless, but that may just be the app.
You can power the keyboard separately but I was using it purely from the phone.
EDIT: I am on JB 4.3
