Expressively control any MIDI software or hardware just by moving your phone!

ControlRoom Mobile enables expressive and intuitive 3D gestural MIDI control. Simply touch the screen while moving your phone.

Connect to your favorite DAW or MIDI-enabled outboard gear like analog synths and drum machines, with our free ControlRoom Hub desktop app. The Hub is where you will quickly name and map any MIDI parameters you wish to control.

ControlRoom Mobile uses your device's position in space to effortlessly control music production software. By mapping different controls to the X, Y, and Z axes, you can control a different MIDI parameter for each direction you move your device, allowing you to fluidly automate three things at once to create never-before-possible sounds. For example, move up/down to control reverb level, left/right for a delay feedback, and front/back for distortion.

If your DAW supports MIDI-mapping, like Ableton Live or Logic, you can control any combination of third party plugins or DAW parameters that you like.

What’s New

Version 2.1.5

This update features a brand new 3D Trail Effect. Instead of a black background, you'll see a live camera view with a colorful 3D trail following behind as you move your phone around in space. If you prefer the original black background, this new feature can be toggled off in the Settings page.

We also made some GUI tweaks throughout to improve usability. If you don't already have the app, you can see this in action by watching the new app preview video we added with this update! Learn more at persp3ctive.com/controlroommobile

Finally! Intuitive and easy automation!

This app makes automating my tracks not only easier but more fun. It takes what can be a laborious task in mixing and makes it physical and intuitive. Aside from the uniqueness of control room mobile, it’s super functional and (to me) necessary. The interface is clear and the colors help make it obvious where to put your fingers and how to alter each individual effect. There is nothing overly complicated about each step setting your parameters. Truly, for someone who is overwhelmed easily by too many details, this is my ideal way to approach automation/mixing. It breaks it down into the most important factors and, of course, adds the fun of using your arm like a magic wand.

I highly recommend trying it!

Wave your phone around to send MIDI!

Takes a while to figure out how to set this up. It turns out you need to download a companion app called ControlRoom Hub from their website. Then your phone will talk to the Hub app and the Hub app running on your computer will talk to the daw. Then you can assign midi cc to phone movement Like moving your phone left and right can be a cc and moving up and down is another cc, front to back is another. So you can move 3 faders with one motion.

An Awesome Addition to my Music Production Toolkit!

This app is a solid supplement to my music production workflow. It makes it easy for me to quickly manipulate my MIDI inputs in Ableton and throw something together. I like the tactile interface and I am excited for future updates!
