What iPad or Mac will I need?
The Sunday Keys App can be installed on any iPad device running iOS15 or newer and on both Intel and Apple Silicon Macs running OS Ventura or newer.
We’ve tested the App across a range of supported devices including the base iPad (as early as 6th generation), iPad mini, iPad Air, and iPad Pro and a variety of Macs from older Intel machines to the newest M2 MacBook Pros.
Experience will vary from device to device with more powerful devices capable of better, faster, and more reliable performance.
The App has been programmed to accommodate various iPad and Mac models and you can adjust relevant settings within the App for your device including adjustable Audio buffer size, adjustable Patch loading settings, and graphics optimizations all focused on optimizing CPU usage.
iPads featuring USB-C or Lightning ports can be used, just note that the hardware adaptors required will vary based on your iPad’s port-type. Mac connectivity is simple and can be expanded with a USB hub, if needed. More information on connecting gear is detailed in the Sunday Keys App User Manual.
What Gear will I need to connect to my iPad or Mac?
The gear connections required to use an iPad or Mac are straightforward and similar to traditional software keyboard setups.
An iPad capable of running iOS 15 or newer or a Mac capable of running MacOS Ventura or newer.
You can install the Sunday Keys App on the base iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air, and iPad Pro and on any Mac with MacOS Ventura or newer installed. Experience and necessary CPU optimizations will vary based on your device’s processing power.
For iPads with a USB-C port:
- A USB-C hub capable of power delivery (and a power supply capable of delivering a minimum of 30W of power to that hub, if not built-in).
Note that the charger that came with your iPad is not capable of delivering adequate power to your USB-C hub.
For iPads with a Lightning port:
- An official Apple Camera Connector Kit
Your iPad power supply will connect directly to the Lightning port on the Camera Connector Kit, supplying power directly to your iPad.
- A powered USB-A hub. This hub must be powered from a wall outlet and will connect to the USB-A port on the Camera Connector Kit.
- a charger to ensure your device maintains power during performance is recommended.
A driverless, class-compliant audio interface to connect to your soundboard is required for iPad, meaning it does not require any special drivers or software to operate.
Most interfaces from popular brands like Focusrite, iConnectivity, Behringer, M-Audio, Radial, etc are class-compliant and can be used. If your iPad features a built-in headphone jack, you can alternatively use a headphone adaptor to run the audio out to your soundboard.
The Mac format also includes support for audio interfaces that use a driver compatible with MacOS.
You’ll connect your audio interface to your USB hub and use its Audio Outputs to connect to your soundboard or headphones.
For iPad, a driverless, class-compliant MIDI controller .
The Mac format also supports midi controllers that use a driver compatible with MacOS.
You can connect up to two MIDI controllers at the same time.
You can connect your MIDI controller over a hardwired connection in a number of ways:
- Via a USB cable connected directly to your USB hub. This will supply power to most MIDI controllers directly.
- Via a MIDI cable connected to a compatible Audio Interface. This will require a separate power supply be used to power your MIDI controller.
- Via a MIDI to USB adaptor cable, connected directly to your USB hub. This will require a separate power supply be used to power your MIDI controller.
You can also connect to wireless MIDI devices over Bluetooth, assuming that those devices are compatible.
Touchscreen Control (iPad only)
You can control every element of the Sunday Keys App directly within the App itself by touch. This includes all faders, knobs, and buttons, the mod wheel and a toggle-able sustain button. The App also features an onscreen keyboard that can display 24 or 88 simultaneous keys and can be touched to directly trigger notes.
Can I use my existing Controller or Interface?
Both the iPad and Mac formats feature full support for all driverless and class-compliant Midi and Audio Hardware, and the Mac format includes additional support for hardware that requires a MacOS driver.
If your gear is driverless and class-compliant, then you should be able to use it with the Sunday Keys App.
Popular hardware from many manufacturers is class-compliant and should be plug-and-play. If you’re not sure if your hardware is class-compliant, consult the user manual for your hardware for more information.
For example, we know many worship keys players enjoy using the Korg nanoKontrol2. This device is class-compliant so it can be easily used within the Sunday Keys App.
Popular hardware MIDI controllers like the M-Audio Keystation and Hammer88 series, Arturia Keylab series, Studiologic SL series, and many more are all class-compliant.
Audio interfaces from popular brands like Focusrite, iConnectivity, Behringer, M-Audio, Radial, etc are class-compliant and can be used.
If you’re not sure about your hardware check the user manual or manufacturer’s website to confirm.
How often will the App be updated?
The Sunday Keys App is a ground-breaking solution built from the ground up for live keys players in a contemporary worship context with a multi-year roadmap of new features and improvements in the works.
The App itself will be updated with new and improved features as they are available. Some new features may require an active Sunday Keys license be maintained in order to utilize them.
The Sunday Keys Sound Libray is regularly updated w/ new Sounds, Patches, and Presets. You should expect to receve a Sound Library update at least once per month for as long as your license is active.
If you decide to turn off auto-renew for your Sunday Keys License, you'll stop receiving updates to the Sound Library after your license year ends. If you ever choose to renew that license at a later date you'll immediately receive everything you 'missed' in-between.
So this is a subscription? What if I don't renew?
You'll keep the Sounds you receive during your license year, even if you don't renew your license.
This is not like Netflix, you don't need to maintain a subscription to use what you've received.
Think of it like a magazine where you'd receive a new issue in the mail each month. If you chose to cancel that magazine delivery of course you'd get to keep all the issues you'd already received. That's true with Sunday Keys as well! You'll receive a new update to the Sunday Keys Sound Library each month, for as long as you keep your license active and that content will always be yours to access within the Sunday Keys App.
If you prefer a one time expense you can simply turn off auto-renew within your User Account. After your license year ends you'll no longer receive SK Sound Library updates or features exclusive to those with an active Sunday Keys License but will continue to be able to use the Sunday Keys App with all the Sound Library content you received up to that point.
Should you ever purchase another Sunday Keys license at a future date you'll immediately receive all previous content that has been released in the mean-time!
Is an iPad ot Mac actually powerful enough?
Short answer, with realistic user expectations and across most devices, absolutely yes!
Detailed answer: Modern iPads and Macs available for sale today are all incredibly powerful, even the lower-cost models.
We’ve worked hard to develop the Sunday Keys App with reliable live performance and resourceful programming techniques from the ground up to deliver an experience that is optimized for as many potential devices as possible.
The Sunday Keys App can be installed on any iPad device running iOS15 or newer and any Mac running OS Ventura or newer.
We’ve tested the App across a range of supported devices including the base iPad (as early as 6th generation), iPad mini, iPad Air, and iPad Pro and a variety of Macs from older Intel machines to the newest M2 MacBook Pro.
Experience will vary from device to device with more powerful devices capable of better, faster, and more reliable performance.
The App has been programmed to accommodate various iPad and Mac models and you’ll be able to adjust relevant settings within the App for your device including adjustable Audio buffer size, adjustable Patch loading settings, and graphics optimizations all focused on optimizing CPU usage.
iPads featuring USB-C or Lightning ports can all be used, just note that the hardware adaptors required will vary based on your iPad’s port-type. Mac connectivity is simple and can be expanded with a USB hub, if needed. More information on connecting gear is detailed in the Sunday Keys User Manual.
Users with less powerful devices may find that they need to optimize settings and/or the size of their setlists to get the best performance.
For example, a user on a 6th generation base iPad may need to utilize a higher audio buffer size, reduce the number of pre-loaded Patches, or include fewer Patches in a single Setlist than someone on an M1 iPad Pro or MacBook Pro.
If your device is struggling to keep up with the performance demands of the App you may notice audio crackles, slower/sluggish Patch changes, or choppier visuals. These are all indications that you should consider making adjustments to the App’s settings and/or reduce the size or complexity of your programmed Setlists to improve performance.
We are confident that all compatible iPad and Mac models will be able to dial-in a reliable Sunday Keys experience. If you end up having trouble, we're here to help. The App is also programmed to suggest setting optimizations intelligently based on your device's capabilities.
Will the App work on Mac, iPhone, or Android?
The Sunday Keys App is now available on both iPad and Mac. It is not available for iPhone or Android and there are no plans to expand to those formats anytime soon.
Can I run my charts/tracks App on the same device?
While it may be possible to operate the Sunday Keys App at the same time as other popular apps focused on live worship music, caution should be used to ensure reliable live performance.
Your experience when multitasking is likely to be influenced by a number of factors, including the specific Apps involved, your iPad or Mac's capabilities, and the specifics of your use case and hardware.
We always recommend stress-testing any possible combination of software in a non-performance context before taking it to the stage.
How do I download the App?
It's simple and only takes a minute!
1) Purchase your Sunday Keys License from this page
2) Download the Sunday Keys App from the App Store on your iPad or Mac
3) Open the App and login with your SundaySounds.com account email to register your device
That's it! With an active Sunday Keys License you'll unlock the full Sunday Keys Sound Library within the App and also receive regular updates and additions to the Sound Library while your Sunday Keys License is active.
Each Sunday Keys License includes one year of Sound Library updates and auto-renews by default. Turn off auto renew anytime after you purchase from within your User Account.
You'll never lose access to Sounds you receive during your license year, even if you don't renew your license and will continue to be able to use the content you received within the App, but will no longer receive additional Sound Library updates after your license period ends. Some new features may require an active Sunday Keys license be maintained.
Why don’t I have access to the App?
You'll need to purchase a Sunday Keys License from SundaySounds.com to make full use of the Sunday Keys App.
If you download the App from the App Store but do not have an active Sunday Keys License, you'll be able to try out the App in Demo Mode with a limited selection of Sounds and features.
After you decide to purchase a Sunday Keys License open the "Sound Downloads Manager" to download the fully library and unlock the full Sunday Keys App experience!
If you purchased an earlier version of the Sunday Keys Template for MainStage or Ableton Live (before October 27, 2021) you can upgrade to a new Sunday Keys License at a discount! Contact us to let us know you'd like to see your upgrade options.
Where do I check for updates?
Updates to the Sound Library are available in the "Sound Downloads Manager" within the App. Updates to the Sound Library will be released regularly, so check often.
Download updates to the App itself from within the iPad and Mac App Store. We recommend that you always manually update your Apps, don't use 'auto updates'.
How does this compare to other SK formats?
We believe the Sunday Keys App stands alongside and complements Sunday Keys’ other formats. One of the greatest strengths of the App is its emphasis on simplicity and a feature set conceived for live worship keys from the ground up.
All of the familiar features Sunday Keys users count on are present in the App including an incredible sound library, easy Patch creation, fast and intuitive workflows, the Tonic Pad Player, simple transposition, tap tempo, seamless transitions from Patch to Patch, and much more.
Users who enjoy using Sunday Keys in one of its other formats may very well be content to continue utilizing that format while others may find the App even better suited to their needs and desired outcomes.
Can I transfer my Patches from another SK format?
We know many Sunday Keys users have go-to Sounds and Patches they’ve found or designed in Sunday Keys for MainStage or Live.
While you can't automatically transfer Patches from MainStage or Live formats, we believe you'll be able to recreate them in the App in a fraction of the time using the same custom-sampled Sounds and instruments found in Sunday Keys' other formats.
Are there Song Specific Patches or expansion sound libraries for the App?
As of Version 1.4, the Sunday Keys App now supports a growing number of our Song Specific Patch catalogue, with more to be added regularly.
Click here to see which Song Specific Patches are already supported.
At this time, no expansion Sound Libraries are available in the Sunday Keys App, but stay tuned!
Does the App replace Sunday Keys for MainStage or Ableton Live?
The Sunday Keys App is a great option availaable to all Sunday Keys users alongside the MainStage and Ableton Live formats.
Those who enjoy their experience in the MainStage or Ableton Live formats continue to be supported by our team and receive an update to the Sunday Keys Sound Library every month with new Sounds.
If in the future we foresee any changes that will have an impact on Sunday Keys in any format, whether it be MainStage, Live or the App, we will endeavor to provide notice of such changes to all users far in advance. As there is justifiable demand for these formats long-term, we plan to continue to support them.
