We have all the controls you need—from piano keys to real, DJ-style crossfaders; from XY pads to drumpads. Set relationships between controls and control groups with supercontrols. Create radio buttons and steppers, hold buttons, crossfade between any controls, and fine-tune relationships to get your rig working exactly how YOU want.
MIDI Designer controls are glowy, beautiful, and pixel perfect. Lay them out exactly where you want them. Size them as you like, from tiny to huge. Shape them as you need, from fat to skinny. Choose textures, backgrounds and LED colors—or let MIDI Designer choose them for you. Decorate with labels and panels, including Emoji. MIDI Designer is deep, but fast and easy.
We provide enough control for pros, and enough guidance for beginners. We’ve thought of everything MIDI—from ensuring unique channel-cc combinations to bidirectional MIDI, up to and including NRPNs and sysex.
