Hi all! First I want to thank everyone who downloaded and tried the app. I hope you’re finding a use for it.
I’m very interested in any feedback you might have regarding your own use cases. I’m developing new features based on my own use of the app and things I find could make my own experience making live electronic performances better, but I understand each person has different needs and I’m open to ideas.
So, don’t hesitate to send me an email (the address is on the info screen of the app itself) and tell me your thoughts.
For now there are some things I want to develop which are basically to make the sequencer and arpeggiator modules more useful when they are playing. Right now it’s hard to edit notes unless they’re stopped. I also want to add a way to edit not just the note, but other parameters such as length, velocity and offset from the main screen. And the arpeggiator needs a length setting. Right now notes are only as long as the duration of the step, which is very limited.
Those are my first priorities but I have a long list of features I’ll be tackling one at a time….
That’s all for now. If you post a jam/song you made using the app in any way I’d also appreciate a link.
There’s a new version of MIDI FX out on the App Store. It fixes a few bugs, especially one that made files using Vintage Piano unreadable.
It also adds a new module: The Switcher
It has one input and multiple outputs but it only sends the signal to the selected output (pointed by the knob). Tap on the knob to go to the next output.
With this module you can, for example, use a keyboard with different synths (one at a time) or create different processing chains and switch from one to the next on the fly.
You can also drag the control to select the output and on its settings menu select from 2 to 5 outputs.
And last but not least: Activate the “Capture PC Commands” option in the module settings and you can send a PC command to change the output. This way you can automate it depending on what pattern you’re playing on a sequencer, or use an external control such as a MIDI pedal. PC Command 0 goes to the next output while from 1 to 5 switches to that output.
Try it out on the Free version and buy the full app to be able to use multiple copies!
My latest app, MIDI FX, is out now. Here you can see it in action.
Process MIDI notes and data from and to all your synths live, sequence notes or PC commands, filter notes to send them to different destinations, add delays, loopers, and much more! An essential tool for live playing with MIDI Synths. And if you use Synth apps on your iOS device, control them from MIDI FX and viceversa…
Today I present my newest iOS/Mac creation: MIDI FX, an app to control all your MIDI devices and process MIDI notes to accomplish a great variety of effects such as creating harmonies, delays, etc… or filter notes to send to different synths or effect chains. It works with MIDI compatible external gear if you connect a MIDI interface but also internally with other apps that support virtual MIDI.
I plan on releasing MIDI FX soon, so if you’re a musician, especially using multiple synths to play live, keep an eye on this page!
