ipad and midipad make prefect sense

Posted by Mikers On April - 1 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

This exciting new take on MIDI controllers for the iPad comes from Tobias Erichsen and Thomas Tautz.

midipad is an exciting new app for the iPad/iPhone for music creation and live-performance.

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.

Pianist Pro heading to iPad

Posted by Mikers On March - 30 - 2010 3 COMMENTS

From the makers of the original iPhone Piano app, comes the iPad’s very first piano app.

Due to go live on the App Store this Saturday, the day the iPad launches as well (in case you’ve been hibernating in a cave somewhere), is Pianist Pro from MooCowMusic. Not much is known about the full and final features of this app, but it’s fair to assume the core features will include everything available in the existing Pianist app, which offers a slick, easy to use interface, a metronome, multi-track recording, and more.

Here’s some screenshots to wet your appetite. (CLICK each images to see a full size version)

AC-7 Pro coming for iPad

Posted by Mikers On March - 28 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

Saitara Software has just released an update for it DAW wireless control software with, AC-7 DAW CONTROLLER V2.0.

However, we’re even more excited to see the developer is working on a ‘Pro’ version specially for the iPad. Aside from the obvious benefits of the larger display offering more room for additional controls, we’re not sure at this stage what other features this new Pro version of the app will include.  If the look of the user interface is anything to go by, its shaping up very nicely indeed.

Head to the developers website for the latest on this app – http://www.saitarasoftware.com/Site/AC-7_Pro.html

bleep!BOX heading to iPad

Posted by Mikers On March - 28 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

It’s exciting stuff to see developers of music apps already focusing on new releases for the iPad before it’s even released!  The team behind bleep!BOX claims ver 1.2.0 has been submitted to Apple and hopefully it will be amongst the list of iPad launch titles.

There have also been some new features added in addition to the new interface that takes advantage of the bigger display real estate.

Most pleasing to learn is, that existing owners of the app won’t need to pay again for this ‘iPad-friendly’ update, and in fact can run it on both an iPhone/Touch as well as an iPad
