Another new controller app for the iPad:

eyoControl is a set of MIDI controllers enabling control of your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software from your iPad in various ways, such as a control surface or a virtual instrument.

Connect multiple iPads in parallel to your DAW through eyoControl Server (free download, see details below), each iPad running eyoControl is then assigned a dedicated MIDI port and can either control a virtual instrument or act as a control surface.

eyoControl includes the following controllers:

  • Pad: a 4/6/8/12-pads MIDI controller with tap-location sensitive (controls MIDI note velocity) pads suitable to play drum parts. Each pad has a configurable color/MIDI channel/note. A global velocity slider adds up to the velocity control of each pad.
  • Keys: a dual keyboard MIDI controller with separate MIDI channels assignable per keyboard. Choose among three key widths per keyboard, and customize key colors. A global velocity slider controls note velocity.
