  1. I see this is available for iphone as well, but there are no ratings or comments on how this works. Anyone here tried it yet?

  2. seems pretty clear cut what this is, am intrigued by how controllable the velocity sensitivity is. There is a lot of noise on that iPad accelerometer so will be curious to see how well they have dealt with it

  3. I’m unclear on how it will sense velocity if it’s sitting on a table, but it’s an interesting idea. I like the Orphion does it, basing velocity on surface area of the touch.

  4. Just given this a test, funnily enough it will sense the vibration on a table better than in your hand. On the table I was able to roughly get about 6 intervals between 36-127, in the hand I was only able to get 3-4 intervals in the same region. Now I’ve played with it for 5 minutes I think I can get the velocity to around +/- 15 of what I am looking for. That’s not bad considering a keyboard isn’t accurate and there is a whole lot of noise on accelerometer readings as well.

    The app itself looks pretty, is zero config MIDI, I kept trying to find where to turn midi on for a while and then realised you didn’t have to, duh! Anyway, like in the screenshots I have a nicely feature keyboard view, a 6 XY pad view, a 6×4 drum grid, and sliders/dial interface. The keyboard seems the most fully featured and you can get it to make custom keyboards for playing scales, and there’s some kind of arpeggiator in there as well.

    Anyway, thats what it’s like after 5 minutes

  5. @ mojofunk what you mean for example?, I use it with Ableton Live, and see how knobs and fader automatically synchronized when I change position of some parameter in Ableton Live (if sync mode in Ableton live enabled…). Incoming midi clock also works with Arpeggiator.

  6. Few promo Codes for Midi Studio 1.0 ver:

    Please, if someone download Midi Studio, evaluate the application in the AppStore and leave a comment, thanks!
