X/Y PAL is your handsome X/Y pad MIDI controller. Control up to 8 parameters per pad. Each parameter can be configured:

- set MIDI Channel and control change message,
- set the CC value range,
- set a color and a name
- pick the MIDI output device and
- inverse the CC value mapping.

On the iPad up to 4 pads can be visible in landscape mode and up to 2 in portrait mode. On the iPhone there can be 2 pads visible and controlled at once.

Pick CC value mappings from a list of predefined devices to help create your custom pads.

CC value change is visualized using bars on the side of each pad.


- configure the X/Y Pads in the settings section
- configure each of the 8 parameters by clicking on the sidebar in the settings section
- pick from a predefined list of devices to easily set the CC value and name or just set some custom name and CC value
- set the color of the parameter by clicking on the color button
- inverse the CC value mapping by selecting the inverse button for the parameter
- select the MIDI output for each parameter
- configure the CC value range for each parameter.

Both CC and XY pal

Both of Daniel’s apps are the bees knees. I witnessed a friend using them with gear last night and instabought when I woke up this morning.

Lol ,you know it’s good when it’s the first thing on a producers mind when he wakes up!

I've been looking for a straightforward x/y MIDI utility for ages and this is nearly perfect. The wealth of preset cc's is awesome as well. The one thing I'd like is if one could define the bounce back value. Using this for VSTs that have x/y pads, the "center" or no-modulation position is often 64 instead of 0. Still fantastic!

Thanks for developing

Just what I need and more. X/Y pad functionality for a device I already own. Looking forward to some modulation and UI magic, but very grateful for what it is.
