Roland
A comprehensive and beautiful layout for the Roland FA06. "Roland’s new FA series completely reimagines the music workstation, streamlining it for effortless real-time power, ultra-fast workflow, and maximum versatility"... This layout provides four big pages with common functions are available at the top of each page. Well-designed and functional, this is one of our most popular layouts.

LAYOUT: Controller for EVERY ValhallaDSP Plug-in by deadbeatsynesthete

863 downloads
ValhallaDSP
As deadbeatsynesthete puts it: "A collection of amazing plug-ins that are some of the best effects out there, they also can be played as instruments in their own right. With mouse clicking, you can only get so far....but with Midi Designer, you'll take these plug-ins to places they've never been before!" ValhallaDSP is from the team that is "utterly and completely obsessed with digital signal processing algorithms for audio," and it shows. These plug-ins are loved by musicians and industry pundits alike, but... how can you control them? That's where this amazing layout comes in. Enjoy control over every parameter of every ValhallaDSP plug-in thanks to deadbeatsynesthete's hard work. [be sure to read the release notes for configuration hints]

LAYOUT: YAMAHA CS6X/R by ezb

Yamaha
The Yamaha CS6x (and the rack-mount version, the CS6R) was released in 1999. It's a wickedly powerful (64-channel polyphony!) 61-key keyboard with awesome sounds. It's been called the "best synth for EDM" and boasts all kinds of cool features (filters, plug-in system boards adding new types of synthesis, and more). And it's a sampler! But where this device falls down is in the UI: to say the least, it's "not very user friendly." And this is where EZB enters the picture with this insanely extensive, platinum-medaled layout for MDP2. This layout is HUGE, which shows his dedication and craftsmanship: it spans eight banks (four on each side) and uses almost the full six pages in each bank. It represents thousands of hours of work, so if you dig it, please give EZB some feedback on the Q&A site. Enjoy!

LAYOUT : SYLENTH1 by ezb

1028 downloads
Lennar Digital
Another COMPLETE controller by Master Layout Designer EZB to control "the most popular VST on the Planet." It's "a virtual analog VSTi synthesizer that takes the definitions of quality and performance to a higher level. Until now only very few software synthesizers have been able to stand up to the sound quality standards of hardware synths. Sylenth1 is one that does." This layout covers all the bases and reorganized the interface of the synth to make sense in an iPad MIDI controller. Big hats off to EZB for this amazing contribution!

Be sure to check out the notes for mapping the layout to the plug, and to understand the different versions and what goes where. Enjoy!

LAYOUT: Shruthi by Mutable Instruments (Synth, Mod Matrix, & Grids) by deadbeatsynesthete

771 downloads
Mutable Instruments
This layout is designed for the fantastic DIY hybrid monosynth that is the Shruthi.

The firmware that it caters to is v0.97, as that is the latest firmware as of July 19 2013, and also what is on my unit. I did not include the arpeggiator / sequencer functions on this layout, but I may add support for them in the future. Also, be aware that there were issues with the modulation matrix parameters when live routing via a Mac OS X Network Session. Using http://confusionists.com/software.mjdj.aspx or connecting the iPad directly to the Shruthi alleviates this problem.

Layout: Korg 707 (released V1.5) by ibo-kai

1738 downloads
Korg
The Korg 707, released in 1987, has been referred to as a "Multitimbral Yamaha DX27," but the unlike the DX27 the 707 is a keytar: guitar strap buttons, a 49-keyboard, and optional battery power bring FM synthesis to a new way of working. But like all of that 80s tech, the front panel is awkward. That's where Ibo Kai's layout comes in. It's the ridiculously high quality we've come to expect of this Master Layout Designer. He writes that it's "for sound programming. All SINGLE parameters are covered. Only the naming and write process has to be done on the synth itself." As usual, the layout looks great: amazing attention to aesthetics and workflow. And it's in Version 1.5. [As always, be sure to check the release notes on the QA site]

LAYOUT: POLY-ANA VSTi by ezb

795 downloads
Admiral Quality
The Poly-Ana VST by Admiral Quality is an "Analog Model Polyphonic Synthesizer" which first released in 2007 to critical acclaim. From there, it's improved to meet user critique. It produces classic analog sounds "inside the box," and EZB has does the amazing work of bringing this plugin to life with a real iPad UI. The controller has hundreds of controls to access all aspects of this plugin directly.

You'll need to check the Q&A entry to get the mapping file and instructions for install.

Enjoy!

This layout is designed for the fantastic sounding and surprisingly deep analog monosynth that is the DSI MoPho.

All parameters are controlled using NRPN commands instead of CC values, which allows for more precision and control of more parameters.

LAYOUT: Kawai K5000 Macro Control by ibo-kai

897 downloads
Kawai
Another tiny masterpiece from Ibo Kai! "This layout resembles the Kawai Macro Control Box, a piece of hardware, that adds certain sound control to a K5000W or K5000R, both of which lack those knobs (which were present in the K5000S only). This is purely MIDI CC and I added the Channel selector as well." The Macro Control is a Unicorn in music tech: it's very useful if you own a K5000 or a K5000R, but almost impossible to find. Enjoy this virtual version thanks to Ibo Kai!

LAYOUT: Xpressive Keys by ibo-kai

1020 downloads
Original, Generic
This is an original instrument from Master Layout Author Ibo Kai. Inspired by the Linnstrument and Eigenharp, Xpressive Keys allows the player to play a key and then modify the pitch (slightly) by moving off-axis in the X-dimension. Moving off-center in the Y-dimension allows the user to change the Modulation (usually to alter the sound character). The layout is made to be modified easily by other users in Design Mode: "when you go to Design mode, 2 further controls will pop up at the top left, below the name. Here you can change the function of vertical and horizontal movements on the keys. This will change the whole keyboard (because the keys are all supercontrols of these)"... it's a brilliant and original entry, and opens the door to further riffs on this layout.

Soundscaper Layout for iPhone by qid

864 downloads
iMusicAlbum
According to the author: "This is a master control layout for the iPad app, Soundscaper. This layout takes a "control differently" approach by mapping each of the main controls to the associated parameters for all 3 oscillators. So, for example, turning the Clock knob will simultaneously change the clock speed for all 3 oscillators. I think you'll find this adds a whole new dimension to the app."

LAYOUT: Clavia NORD LEAD 4 by stashhunter

2088 downloads
Clavia/Nord
The first version of the Nord Lead was released by Clavia in 1995. Gordon Reid from Sound on Sound called it, "a magic piece of electronics," and it demonstrated a new type of synthesis -- "Virtual Analog Synthesis" -- to an industry obsessed with PCM-based workstations and samplers. The Nord Lead 4 continues the evolution with "innovative new performance features, advanced layering and synchronization possibilities, new filter types and on-board effects." The problem, as usual, is how to control such a beast? The Lead 4 only has 29 knobs and some buttons. As layout author Stashhunter (Michael) puts it, tweaking on the knobs of the NL4 is "funny" (think "awkward"). So he created this layout, "to visualize the lots of parameters of the complex voices." It's got some limitations -- see the notes -- but overall it's a wonderful way to get some control over this monstrous and amazing synth. We're extremely grateful to our Community and pioneers like Stashhunter for their contributions.
