Sunvox and Bluetooth Keyboard

I am wanting to get into tha Tracker workflow and hoping I can use my Logitech BT keyboard to flex with sunvox. Anyone having luck with this?

    Works here, but maybe not like you might hope. You can input notes with it, which is good for triggering samples and laying down basic notes in patterns, but not so much for recording any expressive playing.

    However, since iOS doesn’t have a separate sense of key-down and key-up as PC and Mac keyboards do, you can’t sustain notes. Holding down a key results in multiple repeated notes rather than a long note. This is because Sunvox has no way of knowing from the operating system how long you’re pressing a key, so it only re-triggers as the key press messages keep coming in from iOS.

    Also, I don’t think it will work in the AU version, only in the IAA/Standalone version.

    Sunvox has many keyboard shortcuts that are also useful beyond inputting notes, though. Many of them are F1, F2, type keys, which some keyboards handle better than others.
