PianoDisc Remote App for iQ
We've tried to make the app as user-friendly and intuitive as possible. However you might still have some questions. Please send an email to email@example.com with questions or suggestions. Once you purchase the app, all updates will be free. We are constantly striving to perfect it. This app will not access music using Home Share and it NEVER will. It will only play music which is ON your device! This app DOESN'T work with PianoDisc's CD Player or PDS128 or PDS228. This app is for iQ ONLY.
Why This App?
Balance Control: Adjust the piano and audio separately.
Music Chest: Super simple PlayList. Add your music, repeat it. Create these PlayLists right on your device. No need for iTunes. Edit songs before they play. As in mute, sync, balance, and master volume. And of course playback order.
Schedule: Program the piano to play up to 3 times a day. Schedule from a drawer from the Music Chest, or schedule to have PD Radio turn on.
PianoDisc Radio: Stream free music to your piano. This is now better than ever. Very simple. Very fast.
Limits: Programmable upper/lower limits for piano/audio. Prevent piano from turning off when it gets turned down. Prevent piano from playing with to much force.
Mute: Turn off piano or audio during a performance.
Mute Recall: Program the audio of a song to turn off. Do this to songs which are piano only. Sometimes the audio track has unwanted fax like sounds on it. This feature fixes that problem.
Level Recall: Store your audio settings for each and every song. When the song plays again, those settings are recalled. As in master volume, piano/audio balance.
Sync: Adjust the audio to the piano. This is VERY powerful. Sometimes the audio and piano are not in sync with each other. With this the audio can be adjusted to the piano. This adjustment is saved and recalled the next time that particular song plays. Even if the song is in a drawer in the Music Chest.
Shuffle: Have the piano jump around iTunes music on your phone, or music in a drawer.
This app was designed so that you could hold your iPod/iPhone in your left hand and easily push the mechanical volume buttons on the side with your thumb. Quickly set the Master volume of the song that you're listening to so that while the balance faders are about in the middle of their tracks and the sound coming from the piano and the speaker is just right. If you want the Master volume and the balance for that particular song to be recalled, go into Settings by entering 0000 and turn on "Recall Levels". This is a very handy feature. The next time that particular song plays, it will play exactly how you had it before. No need to push a "save" button. It's done for you.
It's official!!! We have finally uploaded our latest version of this app to Apple!!! It should be available in about 7 days. The information below will soon be a thing of the past although most of it is still relative. We've just added some really powerful features to make your piano even better!
This app obviously controls your piano with software. If you wish to have mechanical control over the piano/audio volume you can by way of a "balance control box". It is not necessary to have this box while playing regular PianoDisc cds. But keep in mind, this app will NOT control YouTube content or PianoDisc movie content. However, the mechanical box will. It will control ANY audio signal which it receives. So if you'd like to have absolute control over your piano you might consider purchasing a balance control box which can serve as a very solid foundation for your iQ system. The app can then be used in conjunction with the box. To make the box as if it's not there, you simply turn up the piano and audio volume all the way. You may not want this type of setup because of the clutter factor, but once again the mechanical box gives control over YouTube and PianoDisc Videos. The app WILL NOT work with either of those. Keep in mind that the app will do all kinds of things that a mechanical device could only dream of. Anyway, this is why we recommend both the app and the box.
Here is the new interface
If you've already purchased PD Remote the upgrade will be free. If you buy the current version, the update will also be free. Notice the Optimize button. Notice the red little bar light on the Optimization button. That light indicates that the currently loaded song "Come Away With Me" has been optimized for the Master Volume Slider being in and out of Main.
YouTube takes you here...OH ya baby!! Oh so cool!!!!! PianoDisc will be adding more content soon.
Optimization mode for NO MASTER IN MAIN
Optimization mode for MASTER IN MAIN
PianoDisc Remote now has two Radio Stations. More will be added in the future. Right now we have a Christmas station and our regular PianoDisc Radio. Both stream 24/7 and are free of charge.
