midipad for iPad

midiPad in action from kai on Vimeo.

What musician didn’t want a Jazzmutant Lemur? What musician could actually afford one? Luckily technology marches forward and brings goodness to the masses and the midipad for iPad is a good example. There will be different views to start you off such as studioView, djView, launchView, fxView and keysView. The concept is futuristic fun but will I really want to use it in my studio? I like to move as fast as possible between brain and sound. How about live then? I can manage to use my iPhone while on my elliptical trainer so sweaty fingers won’t be a problem. I do know I’m definitely going to try it out!

“The striking feature of midipad is its ability to directly communicate via network-MIDI-protocol. So there is no need to install any communication-peer-software on the Mac! Simply plug-and-play via Apple Bonjour – wireless. This multitouch-capable midi-controller-application communicates with your Apple Mac your Windows-based PC and even standalone hardware-synths via Wifi.” – midipad.de

  1. How do you find TouchOSC as as a controller? I don’t have an iPhone so haven’t used it. The new black background on the midipad is great. Start saving!


  2. I couldn’t have said it better myself
