Stompwatch Turns iPhone, iPad + Apple Watch Into MIDI Controllers

Secret Base Design has released Stompwatch – a new app for iOS that turns your mobile device into a virtual MIDI pedal board.

You won’t want to step on it – but you can use it to control both apps and MIDI hardware, using the screen, a Bluetooth keyboard, the Audiobus Remote app, or the Apple Watch. It is easy to configure and versatile.

Here’s the official video intro:

The app features ten pages, each with ten pads. Each page can be configured to send MIDI to any number of destinations, while each pad can be configured to send a MIDI note, a chord, or either program change or control change messages. You can move swiftly from one page to another, and use it to control and configure any MIDI gear.

Other features:

Stompwatch is available for US $4.99 in the App Store.
