AC Sabre MIDI Controller App For iPhone

AC Sabre is a revolutionary wireless MIDI instrument and motion controller for iPhone. It brings the dynamic richness and performance energy of traditional instruments to your digital music library, in a way that is not possible with the existing studio and stage tools.

AC Sabre reads your movements with the built in gyroscope and accelerometer and translates them into musical actions. It lets you pluck invisible strings in the air while controlling up to 7 additional parameters, intuitively with your movements, via MIDI CC messages.

PLEASE NOTE: AC Sabre contains no sounds of its own. You’ll need a computer with MIDI compatible music software (Ableton, Logic, Cubase, FLStudio, Reason, Garage Band, Massive, Kontakt, Sylenth…), or other apps which support MIDI input (Animoog, Nave).

iOS MIDI clock sync generator and monitor

Midibus iOS MIDI clock sync generator and monitor

MidiBus is a MIDI clock sync generator and monitor. Now it may not be much to look at really but hey it is a utility and is does exactly what it is supposed to do and that is to function as a MIDI clock sync master device.

Choose your bpm, time signature and MIDI destinations. Press the play button and all selected apps and devices will receive a synchronised, rock-solid MIDI sync clock source.

On the flipside, monitor the MIDI clock signals of apps and devices (including MidiBus itself) and measure how accurate and stable they really are. You might be very surprised at the results.

Midibus Screen Shot

What’s New in Version 1.5
– MIDI controlled Tap Tempo (via MIDI learn)

“A new feature that allows you to use an external MIDI controller to ‘tap’ the tempo even while the clock is running.
It works by ‘learning’ the event you wish to use to set the tempo. Here’s how to do it:
1. Make sure that the controller you want to use is being monitored. On the Monitor panel in the app check that the connected controller (can be another app, hardware or wifi/bluetooth port) has a blue arrow/clock icon (not red X).
2. Flip to the Transport panel and press the ‘bpm’ field to expand the Tap Tempo controls.
3. Slide the ‘learn’ switch to ‘On’ and generate your external MIDI event that you wish to use to control the tempo. The event must be either a note, controller (value > 0) or a program change. Once the learn function has seen one of these events it remembers that event as the tap tempo trigger (hex value of learnt event shown in the textfield) and automatically switches out of learn mode.
Subsequent taps of the learn event will set the tempo of the clock signal. You can do this while the clock is running (this applies to the ‘Tap Tempo’ button in the app too in this release. The learnt event is channelised in that subsequent events must be on the same channel as the learnt event to trigger the tempo adjustment. Regards, Nic.”

– Tap Tempo now also adjusts BPM while clock is running
– Support for forthcoming companion app
– Minor fixes, MidiBus library 1.35 update

Stompwatch MIDI Remote For iPhone and Apple Watch
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Stompwatch

Stompwatch is a virtual MIDI pedal board, designed to control both apps and MIDI hardware, using the screen, a Bluetooth keyboard, the Audiobus Remote app, or the Apple Watch. It is easy to configure and versatile.

The app features ten pages, each with ten pads. Each page can be configured to send MIDI to any number of destinations, while each pad can be configured to send a MIDI note, a chord, or either program change or control change messages. Toggle swiftly from one page to another, to control and configure all of your MIDI gear.

With MIDI over Bluetooth, you can use your iPhone to control an iPad. Use your Apple Watch to select different presets on a guitar effects app. With Audiobus Remote, you can control both MIDI gear and Audiobus controls in one location. Use the pads to trigger drum samples or play synthesizers. With MIDI, you can do almost anything.

Stompwatch supports conventional Bluetooth keyboards — if the app is in the foreground, you can trigger pads by typing on the keyboard.

Get Stompwatch for $4.99
