Mac Driver for Dream Cheeky USB Roll-Up piano

Driver that enables the Dream Cheeky USB Roll-up Piano to work on a Mac

  • neil_kell407 Nov 29, 2008

    Just bought one of these things. I use Protools, Logic, Garageband and a host of other packages. I dont see this thing as a serious tool at all but the fact that it can roll up and fit into a laptop bag makes it a very attractive tool for portable teaching and simple drum groove work. Its also, apparently touch sensitive which is nice. It does not, however, work on my powerbook. Its not even recognised. 


     Can anyone help??  I would really like to get this thing working and as you can buy them now for peanuts it would be something that may help others.


    Any thoughts??

I got one of the drum kits last Christmas, but I have a Mac. Finally, this Christmas, I got around to writing a driver for it. I mean, why not? It runs in Terminal and translates the drumkit hits to MIDI messages which you can use to control GarageBand or Logic or send out a MIDI interface to control MIDI hardware. Doesn't have any of the fancy learning modes or anything, though; just lets you play it. Email mail_ben_schmidt at yahoo com au if you're interested. I doubt it would take much modification to get it to work with the piano, which I expect works on exactly the same principles. But I don't have a piano, so I would need to collaborate with someone or have one lent or donated to me to do that.

    My drum kit driver has been updated to have a nicer interface and work for both the piano and the drum kit. It is available here:

I was looking to buy one myself as it's just priced right for me right now and it's all I really need as I'm a beginner in music, GarageBand and keyboard playing. I do have a good musical ear though and I bought some software to learn at my own speed called: eMedia Piano & Keyboard Method Volume 1. I'm curious if you tried or knew of the built in Audio MIDI Setup in OS X? If not give it a try. I'm not too sure but it started with 10.2 Jaguar so if you're there or later maybe that will sort things out for you. Post a reply if this helps although I might've took the plunge by now and got one!

4 keys do not work on Play and Roll Piano


There MAY be a break in the flexible conductors going to the keys... probably not repairable I am afraid.

I can't get d usb connection and i think the driver is corrupted


Make sure the driver is compatible with your operating system... often stuff will not work with Vista for example. Often SOME software REQUIRES it to be installed before USB cable is connected, and yet other requires it not be connected till software is installed... read the manual...

as for any usb device, the general rule is run/install first the driver program via the cd installation disk before plugging in the USB device. Try removing the Piano usb, restart the pc, install the cd driver, and plug in the piano.

Midi vs. Sound


Think of MIDI like the old time player pianos where you put a roll into it and the punches on the paper roll told the piano what notes to play. MIDI is a way for computers and musical instruments to communicate what is being played. When you plug your keyboard into your computer and enable it in Cakewalk, then Cakewalk records what notes you are playing on your keyboard (makes a piano roll file). Then when you tell Cakewalk to play this file back it communicates to your keyboard and says play these notes just like a person was sitting there playing these notes. The distinction here is you are recording and playing back your performance (which keys you pressed, how hard you struck the keys, how long you held the keys for sustain, etc...). No sound is actually being recorded, just the PERFORMANCE. When you play it back, the keyboard regenerates the sounds on the fly just as if you were actually sitting there performing the music again. Same thing applies to other MIDI enabled instruments (drums, guitar, saxaphone, etc...). This opens up all kinds of possibilities, you can redirect the recorded MIDI file to a completely different sound or instrument. Example... you record MIDI of you playing piano song, then you have Cakewalk play this MIDI back to your keyboard but you change the sound on your keyboard to guitar, it will play the same song, but now you will hear guitar instead of piano. Get it?

Hhow to save a pattern in fl studio and reuse the same in another


Open up the piano roll window for the sample you have selected. Use the highlight tool, which looks of a dashed square, to select the entire pattern by dragging your cursor from the top right corner of the piano roll diagonally to the left bottom corner of the piano roll. If you can't see all of the bars used, then try sizing the track in the piano roll closer together by placing your cursor on the square directly to the right of the horizontol scroll bar. Hold down the left click and move your mouse down to track the piano roll closer or move the mouse upwards to span it more. Select all of the bars used in the piano roll and click the down arrow in the very upright corner. Select Edit > Copy. This will copy all of the bars in the current piano roll. To paste the pattern simply click the down arrow again in the upright corner and select Edit > Paste in any piano roll.
