Software Description

MidiPads is a fully configurable MIDI Controller for iPad to control software on your Mac or PC.

MidiPads does not require 3rd party software or proprietary hardware to make a MIDI connection.

  • Bottom part fully customizable with resizable touch pads and sliders
  • Four pages with 16 touch sensitive drum pads each
  • Several modes to influence velocity: Two-finger-tap, vertical pad position, random velocity, and min and max velocity always definable
  • Touch pads and sliders support snapping and fading
  • Use drum pads as tap or toggle buttons, either in key or CC mode
  • Drum pads can act as X/Y controller and pad at the same time

  • Drum pads can show incoming values (e.g. that a sample is on that pad)
  • Gravity controller (use iPad's rotation axis as controller)
  • Easy Midi learn for each controller, as a learn CC value is sent on CC selection
  • Lock mode hides all elements that would hinder your performance
  • Supports all 16 midi channels (for each element separately!)
  • Drum pads can blink on incoming midi sync and hence support you with the beat
