Audiofile Engineering MIDI Surface

May 20, 2010

Designed for use with Line 6's MIDI Mobilizer hardware accessory, MIDI Surface gives iPhone and iPod touch owners the ability to quickly and easily build their own fully customized MIDI control surfaces. Seamless touchscreen control of MIDI-enabled instruments such as keyboards, drum machines, software synths and more is now available in the palm of users' hands.

Suitable for use onstage, at home or in studio settings, MIDI Surface offers four interface styles, each with its own set of changeable parameters. The Keyboard interface features channel and velocity controls. The Sliders interface includes channel, controller (mod wheel, expression, etc.), low-value and high-value controls. The Drum Pads interface includes channel, category (note-on, controller, program change), note, note-off (immediate or touch up) and velocity controls. The X-Y interface supports up to four touches and includes channel, controller, left value and right value controls.

Users can create and save as many MIDI Surface interfaces as they like. Each customized control surface can be configured in detail and adjusted on the fly. Users can store their own presets for quick recall.

MIDI Surface is now available for download via the Apple App Store for $5.99. Installation on iPhone or iPod touch requires iPhone OS 3.1 or higher. The required Line 6 MIDI Mobilizer accessory is sold separately .
