MidiPads is a drum pad controller for the iPad and sports 64 drum pads, which can be resized in both size and area. The bottom part is fully configurable by the user with resizable touchpads, sliders and buttons. Both sliders and touchpads support snapping to a value, fading to the touch position (duration user-configurable) and bouncing. One very unique feature is the drumpad-integrated X/Y-controller: Change your instruments’ or your effects’ sound just by moving your finger while still triggering – very useful also for DJ software like Traktor Pro.

All elements can be edited by the user: Color, label, details can be changed for each element individually, Midi channel and Midi CC/Key can even be set per sender – and each element supports multiple of them per event. Sliders, drumpads and buttons can receive incoming Midi values:

Sliders act as VU meters, drumpads/buttons glow depending on the incoming value.
