Here’s what the developers have to say about MIDIPad:
The striking feature of midipad is its ability to directly communicate via network-MIDI-protocol. So there is no need to install any communication-peer-software on the Mac! Simply plug-and-play via Apple Bonjour – wireless. This kind of connectivity has not been used in any similar iphone-software.
This multitouch-capable midi-controller-application communicates with your Apple Mac your Windows-based PC and even standalone hardware-synths via Wifi.
So you can control all of your music-applications with just a few finger-gestures without having to sit at your desk and no annoying cable.
In the production-environment midipad can control host-applications like Apple Logic, Steinberg Cubase/Nuendo, Ableton Live etc.
It can also be used to control stand-alone applications from companies like Native-Instruments, Spectrasonics and many more.
As a live-musician you can control sub-mixes of your virtual keyboard-rig, activate setups and change parameters of the virtual instruments or even hardware-instruments – all in realtime on stage.
If you are a DJ, you can control your favorite application wireless as well. So you just might take a stroll through your ecstatic audience.
midipad incorporates various commonly used controller-types like buttons, trigger-pads, sliders, ribbon-control in one & two dimensions, rotary-knobs, or complete functionality blocks like transport-control.
midipad also reacts to midi-data from the connected remote computer, to provide instantaneous feedback for your performance.
Preconfigured setups, divided in seperate views can be activated concurrently. Using multi-touch various functionality of the remote-software can be controlled. The features to be controlled can be configured by the user in the setup.
