Metagrid is a perfect companion for all creative Mac/Windows users who work with complex software like graphic suites, digital audio workstations or video-editing software. It enables you to streamline your workflow and control your favourite apps on Mac/Windows directly from your iPads (up to 4 devices at the same time) by sending:
- keyboard shortcuts
- MIDI notes
- MIDI CCs
- MIDI Program Changes
- powerful macros
Metagrid is shipped with ready-to-use predefined view sets for popular creative apps like Illustrator, Photoshop, Protools, Logic X Pro, Digital Performer, Final Cut, Cubase, Studio One for Mac as well as Cubase, Digital Performer and Studio One for Windows. We will be adding more content for Windows soon.
Metagrid features deep integration with popular DAW applications including Logic Pro X, Cubase, Digital Performer, Studio One, Ableton Live, Reaper and Dorico. You can choose from complete sets of commands available for these applications directly on your iPad and in no time assign them to your buttons.
Metagrid detects the application that is in focus on your computer and automatically displays the appropriate defined viewset. For custom views you can select several view sizes (from 6 up to 110 buttons).

Ratings and Reviews
Great for streamlining operation commands. It’s quite a bit tricky setting up Cubase on Windows, but Cubase is fussy anyway. Studio One integration worked very well, and I’ve started setting up screens for Bitwig by assigning key commands to buttons, as they do not have macros set up yet. Once you wrap your head around it, it’s logical and not difficult to customize layouts for whatever you need.
Amazing app! Just a couple of things...
This app has changed my life. Speeding up my workflow tremendously, with easy use and great functionality. My only two constructive comments are: that I wish I could use the app offline (to continue to work on my templates even while away from my computer), and that with this recent update I’ve noticed my buttons will all simultaneously switch to the MIDI channel next to the one that was assigned, unprovoked. If I’m doing something to make this happen I’m completely unaware of what it is, but it’s quite frustrating to have to go through so many buttons, switching the MIDI channel over which they send their command message, over and over again. Please fix! Otherwise, please keep up the good work and thank you for this app!
Streamlining My Workflows in the Office
My productivity speed has jumped into light speed using Metagrid on my iPad and Macro Express 6 on my work PC. I have set up macros for opening files and folders, retrieving data from online forms depositories, controlling my automations, and starting frequently accessed programs. The best part is I can name the button, and not have to remember a key stroke combination for all my processes I created. Thank you for a game changer for me!
