ChordMapMIDI tends to get overlooked, but it is a neat way of quickly putting some chords together to write a song. I'm really excited about it. Here is an example of it being used to send VirtualMIDI to ThumbJam, in a finger-picked guitar style.
The details on the Magic Flute are kind of limited. It looks like this was released in 2007 and intended for musicians with disabilities. As the video shows, it can add an extra layer of control for anyone.
The iRig MIDI interface connects the Magic Flute to an iPad to control not only the included SampleTank FREE but also a world of MIDI-compatible apps such as GarageBand.
It is possible to assign breathcontoll in Sample tank but it is very limited and you need to use 2 extra apps to get the job done: MidiBridge and freewi. Maybe we get better control in the future , time will tell. So far I only could control the modulation wheel, any better results? let us know.
NotesFlash offers a way to practice reading sheet music on your phone, with Flashcards and an on-screen keyboard.
This app is for budding musicians still trying to fully memorize and internalize all the different notes, keys, clefs, sharps, and flats!
The goal is for you to eventually be able to see a note in ANY key and INSTANTLY play that note.
You determine the following:
• Treble clef, Bass clef, or Both
• Number of Ledger Lines to add
• The Key Signatures that you want to work on
... and then start practising!
Flashcards may seem a little childish, but it really is a good way to learn. And it's free!
This is a convenient way to control the Mini Moog VST without having to make a custom one in something like TouchOSC.
The Mini-V Controller is the latest 4LittleFonzies iPad controller. It controls the Arturia Mini-V virtual instrument like you're turning the knobs on real hardware. No fiddling on the screen with your mouse; just control the Mini V while your performing on the keyboard.
It uses the wireless MIDI possibilities of the IOS CoreAudio framework. On the VST side, the wireless MIDI is enabled with: OSX -> Build-in Wireless MIDI Windows -> rptMIDI (http://www.tobias-erichsen.de/rtpMIDI.html)
That's a nice deal for a dedicated controller app, at one-tenth the price of the competition. Here is an overview from the developer.
