Easy connect to Ableton Live, Logic PRO X, ProTools, GarageBand or any other DAW, for some serious music production capacities.
For the untrained musician, dj, "bedroom producer", singer or song-writer, it's a must have, allowing you to easily come-up with chord-progressions, and melodies, just by pressing and swiping the buttons - no need to learn how to play!
Create a beat, riff or loop in a few moments, or make fully produced songs directly from what you play. Control your favorite third-party plug-ins, from Native Instruments, reFX, Rob Papen, Spectasonics and others. Even score your Fingertip MIDI playing, when connected to Logic PRO X or GarageBand!
Play in-time by with quantization on, or play along to the metronome. Display the note names if you wish, or keep them turned-off, and play "by ear" - and for more options adjust the tempo, or change the octave of the notes.
For the serious musician or producer, it's great way to come-up with new riffs and ideas for songs, straight into your favorite DAW, or through other apps using Virtual MIDI. Fingertip MIDI is the new standard in MIDI!

Useful Alternate Playing Surface
This app is like others in the series, except that it does not make sound by itself; it is designed to control other music apps that support MIDI. This is handy if your preferred synth has a limited set of control options, or you need more space than a virtual keyboard supplies.
That said, this puts Fingertip MIDI in competition with some formidable apps such as Soundprism Pro, which have the same chord/grid-based interface, but with many more options. Also, there is a curious design decision to default to quantization, which forces notes to occur on regular beats, according to a tempo setting in the app. This might be better if it delayed note input, but if you play faster than the set tempo, the extra notes are just thrown out, which makes for an unpredictable and frustrating experience. Since this is easily fixed by switching off quantization in Settings, I'm not taking a star off for it, but wanted prospective purchasers to be aware of it.
So, in short, good option, but there are better ones out there.
Great addition to playing music
For playing/creating music on an iOS device, this MIDI app will provide another avenue of approach from playing keys in your synth app. I use Fingertip as well as SoundPrism. SP is great with chords, Fingertip for more specific melodies, in my opinion. Rarely came across a synth app that does not work with Fingertip.
I write songs and make beats in Ableton Live. I've been using Fingertip Midi to come-up with song ideas and I really like it. I love the way the notes are arranged - it's not what you would expect. It's so quick and easy. I love it!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
