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.

Works Great but I Need More

Let me start by saying that this is the best BY FAR of any midi app I've tried. It starts free and demos great which they ALL should, since I'm not buying until I know it works.
The Bluetooth actually works, you select midi and the knives click right in. HOWEVER, I need an XY pad, a keyboard and a grid controller plus transport. Add those in PLEASE. There are so many other clunkers out there.
