Geert Bevin, Software Engineering Lead at Moog Music, Principal Software Engineer at Roger Linn Design, and cat owner, miraculously has some free time. He made a new MIDI controller app for WatchOS. MidiWrist uses the Apple Watch's crown (the thing on the side) as a tactile MIDI knob. You can tap between 4 different knobs to determine which is being controlled by the crown. It looks to offer a remarkable amount of customization, with a visualization of where all of your parameters are presently at.
MidiWrist will be launching next week, but you can pre-order it today for $5. There's a demo of it tweaking knobs in Model D on an iPhone. In the video embedded here Geert plays guitar and controls an Eventide H9.
My upcoming app MidiWrist is not just for synths, it works amazingly well with the Eventide H9, controlling it remotely over Bluetooth and giving you access to all parameters and controls immediately on your wrist while playing guitar!
