Skoog Bluetooth MIDI allows you to easily connect your Skoog 2.0 wirelessly with your Mac. To use Skoog with a Mac or PC you will need to download the Skoogmusic software. The app and software are free to download. You can access them  via the downloads section.

Set up for Mac.

1. Switch Skoog on by clicking the power button and then click again to activate Bluetooth.
2. Select the Skoog Bluetooth MIDI app icon from the menu bar located at the top of the screen and select settings.
3. Select Bluetooth MIDI devices from the settings menu.

5. When prompted input 000000 and then you’re good to go!


You can use your Skoog on a flat surface or on a compatible mount (here is some further info on compatible mounting options).  Either way you will need to calibrate your Skoog to get the best out of it.

  1. Place your Skoog on a flat surface like a table or your lap, or fix it in the required playing position with your mount kit.  It’s important not to move your Skoog during the next stage of the set-up process.
  2. Now that you have got your Skoog in the preferred position, it needs to be calibrated to make sure it plays correctly.  It’s important that you do not touch or move your Skoog during calibration. When you are ready tap the ‘Calibrate’ button from the settings menu. It will take around 5 seconds to calibrate.

How to play your Skoog.

There are 5 sides on your Skoog- red, blue, yellow, green and orange. Each side plays a different note. As well as pressing within the coloured circles, you can also squeeze Skoog anywhere on its sides, edges and corners.

Skoog works great when played with your hands but it can be played with any part of your body.
