Developer Nigel Rios has updated AudioSwift, the macOS trackpad MIDI controller app, adding velocity sensitivity.
Now the Trigger and Scale Modes are velocity sensitive. Tapping the trackpad harder or softer will change the levels of the MIDI notes. The user can also choose to use fixed velocity in the Preferences window.
“This new feature, with the MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) support, makes AudioSwift the perfect compact MIDI controller for mobile and desktop music producers,” says Rios.
AudioSwift version 2.2 is a free update for existing users.
Here’s what’s new in AudioSwift v2.2:
- Adds velocity sensitivity to the Trigger and Scale Mode.
- Adds option to choose fixed velocity.
- Fixes an issue with random false hits Trigger Mode.
- Fixes an issue with “swooping” sounds when using the MPE controller and certain plugins.
- Fixes an issue that caused to not trigger Note Off messages in Trigger Mode.
- Fixes wrong tip messages.
- Minor bug fixes.
