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 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 like Logic Pro X, Cubase, Digital Performer and Studio One. You can choose from complete sets of commands available for these DAWs 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
Excellent app. As a film composer it's a huge time saver and workflow booster. I would like to see updates and new features more often. Besides that it's awesome.
Awesome Logic Integration
I wish lemur was integrated this well w/ standard Logic commands
Great value - great functionality
I'm using Metagrid with Cubase, and it works great. Useful functionality out-of-the-box, with many straightforward options to customize. Setup went fine after watching the videos on the Metasystem web site. Very happy with the purchase and would highly recommend it if you are interested in remote Cubase functionality (or another supported app).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
