Spooky Zoo: Novation Circuit - One-Page Macro Editor

Long-time reader Spooky Zoo has released a set of free macros for controlling a Novation Circuit from MIDI Designer, with MidiFire. All of the parameters are presented on a single page!

Video Description:

All your Macro settings on one big screen! Twist, tweak and have fun!

These changes can be saved into a session on the Circuit but not overwrite a patch.

Hit the "Get Values" button to see what magic hides behind the Macros of your favourite patch.

Apologies for the wobbly & low quality vid. Best viewed in 720p and upwards if possible.

Layout files can be downloaded using this link http://bit.ly/MACROS1

In order to use this layout you will need....
* An iPad
* Novation Circuit Hardware
* USB lead (this layout will not work with Din Midi to USB as the Circuit does not output the required data via Din/Breakout)
* MidiFire iOS app (current version V1.15 as of 24/7/2018)
* MidiDesigner iOS app (current version v2.96 as of 24/7/2018)
* Apple CCK (Camera Connection Kit (dongle))

Massive thanks to Nic (MidiFire) & Dan (Midi Designer) for all the help and emails!! :)

Would love to hear back if you're having fun with this or see anything that needs fixing. You can contact me at the following email... spookyzoo@live.co.uk

Hey Tim,

Thanks for posting this.

It's been a super fun project to undertake. I already have other layouts for the Circuit almost complete. A Full Screen Matrix, and a larger scale Editor for all Circuit Synth controls.

This does require both MidiFire & Midi Designer apps but is a very easy setup.

A full screen Macro view was something I felt was missing in the Desktop & iOS Editors and is personally something I'm very happy to have created and am using a lot right now. Instant smiles! :)

Nice! Yeah, I dig the single page layout. All of the controls where you can see them has a big impact on my personal workflow.

Also you should make an account! Since you're a Patron you will get an Ad Free experience here and can see Let's Plays a day earlier.
