Under the "Setup" tab, go to the MIDI options. What does the black bar say? If it says something other than "No MIDI Hardware Connected", then Music Studio is definitely recognizing it. If it does say that there isn't a connection, you might have a faulty USB-to-Lightning dongle.

Do other apps work with the A800 Pro?
I looked it up and Roland doesn’t seem to specify that it’s iOS (“CoreMIDI”) compatible.
There seem to be compatibility issues:

Music Studio automatically connects to all CoreMIDI devices. You can check if Music Studio sees your keyboard by tapping the black text box in the upper right of the MIDI setup screen:
(it says “Core MIDI (SampleWiz)” on this screenshot)

Also make sure that MIDI IN is enabled, the port is set to “all” and the channel to 1 in this window: ... nels_popup
