Audeonic released StreamByter this weekend! Fans of Audeonic's MidiFire will recognize this MidiFire module as a discrete AUv3 app. I've personally lamented the lack of interesting MIDI Effects apps and this one solves that problem because it lets you make your own! You can actually write your own MIDI effects with it.
In fact some beta testers have already shared their MIDI inventions with StreamByter. Over on the Audiobus forum there is an excellent thread from SpookyZoo offering examples of the app in action. This thread is also a good reference for people who may not be familiar with MIDI messages.
StreamByter iTunes Description:StreamByter is a plugin for creating custom MIDI effects. It can be used as an Apple Audio Unit (AU) effect or as a standalone app connected via CoreMIDI virtual ports. StreamByter is ported from our acclaimed MidiFire MIDI processing environment.
An iOS device (minimum iOS 11) and a suitable AU host app such as AUM, apeMatrix, Cubasis or Sequencism is required to use the AU variant. To use with CoreMIDI, a routing app like MidiFire is recommended and an iOS device with at least iOS 8 is required.
Use StreamByter to:
- Extend the MIDI processing functionality of any AU host.
- Remap channels, notes, controllers (anything MIDI)
- Filter MIDI events coarsely or finely
- Clone or Delay any event
- Send any event automatically when plugin is loaded
- Create complex effects using programming concepts like conditionals, loops, variables (including array, timing and random), and math operators.
StreamByter is configured using a textual rules 'language' that defines how the effect should operate. Please see the support link to go to our website for full details.
StreamByter is built using the MidiBus library - http://midib.us
