MIDI FX 1.3 OUT NOW! AUv3 Support

I’ve just released the new update. It should be live in the next hours.

The main change is I’ve added support for hosting AUv3 plugins (payed version only), both Audio Instruments and Audio Effects. So you can use the app to create whole songs, or play around with MIDI music generation using just your iPad. See it in action here, and if anything stops producing sound, there’s a “Reset Audio” button on the settings menu.

Other updates include a new type of MIDI input for modules called “Trigger Input”. You can see it in action on the Sequencer module. Just go to the module settings and select the Trigger option. The “play” button will stop working and instead each note will be played when any MIDI command is received on the trigger input. This way you can fire notes up at specific points in time.

Another new module is the “On/Off” module. It separates Note On and Note Off commands. This way you can use any one type to trigger events without the other interfering. Used in combination with the Converter modules it is very powerful. You can both here:

AUv3 support is kind of experimental, so any feedback is welcomed. I couldn’t test it with many plugins as I don’t really use them for my own music production, so any specific problems you find, please report them using the link in the Info screen of the app.

Especially Mac support for AUv3 is quite shakey… I’ve used a couple of plugins that have Mac versions and they mostly work, but they’re not very reliable…

Remember to use the “Reset Audio” button on the Settings menu if anything stops producing sound…

Thanks for the support, and hope you enjoy the newest features. This is a one man operation and a “labour of love” kind of project, so please, be kind and I’d appreciate any support especially positive reviews. Please, write me an email if you find any problem before just leaving a negative review: I’ll try to solve it as soon as I can.
