Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I needed!
Firstly, I’ll explain why I gave this app four stars and what can be done to turn it into five stars: Add support for aftertouch and program changes! I use both of those frequently in my setup, so I would love to see them added as controllable knobs.
Now for the main review.
My MIDI keyboard only has one wheel and one slider for CC control, so I was looking for a cheap method to control more CC parameters without using my PC mouse in my DAW (which is too tedious for my liking). Then I had the idea to try looking for an app that could do that! I browsed through several paid apps until I found this free one that seemed to do exactly what I needed. Sure enough, it does, and it works really well!
Please add pitch bends.
Cool, but no way to add pitch bends. Hesitant to purchase Sonic Labs.
HOLY S"&@T IT WORKS!!!!
OMG IT WORKS!! IT WORKS!!!!!!
I'm running Windows Vista on an AMD Dual core motherboard (ancient tech) and using Reason 5. I'm using this app over my wifi. There is virtually no midi lag, I had no issue at all getting it to work.
This is the app you are looking for if you're a Windows user like me. I can't believe how smoothly and sensitively it performs. It's stupid simple to get up and running. YOU WILL NEED TO INSTALL A PROGRAM CALLED rtpMIDI on your computer (but you've probably already done that if you've been trying to get an iOS midi controller to talk to your Windows based DAW software 😉).
I have installed countless crappy half working apps trying to find a controller exactly like this one and this is the only one that works!!!!! It is a steal for the price they ask to upgrade.
It works! I'm Using seriously outdated hardware and software and this app doesn't blink!! It just works.
