MIDI Designer got a nice big update, along with a helpful video demonstrating the new features.
What's new in MIDI Designer v1.5.1:
MIDI Designer 1.5.0 just grew up, and its new name is 1.5.1. New advanced features:
And beyond that, it's just a normal release with tons of new features and enhancements:
- NAMED TICKS allow you to specify and name each value on a slider, knob, crossfader or XY.
- CONTROL COPIES: put the same control on various pages, in the size you need.
- NEW BUTTON SHAPES: piano keys and hex buttons give you some options. More will be coming soon.
- HIDDEN CONTROLS: as you use supercontrols and subcontrols in MIDI Designer, you'll want to hide some in performance mode. When you get there, you'll know.
Changes to Design Mode
- Use normal buttons to toggle the accelerometer or send all values from the current page.
- Rotation of touch axis for knobs/sliders/crossfaders allows for more placement possibilites.
- Channel changers have been reworked to acommodate button groups and values-per-channel.
- "Relative" dynamic MIDI messages (control sends MAX for up, MIN for down, usually 65 and 63).
- White LED color
- Sysex learn. We now support learn for Control Change, Note On, NRPN [14- and 7-bit], Program Change and Bank Select
- Mail a list of unused channel-cc combinations
- Reworked the entire Design/Config UI: more consistent, flexible, and comprehensible
- Long Throw has been reworked to allow hitting all control values
This update also applies to the free Lite version, which also includes the additional notes:
What's new in MIDI Designer Lite v1.5.1:

[NOTE: we are aware that Lite for iPhone/iPod touch is asking for you to unlock for iPad. This is a bug that will be corrected ASAP. Sorry for the inconvenience.]
