Miditure for iPhone arrives

Miditure is a MIDI controller app for the iPhone, it can be used to control any instruments, apps, software and hardware that accept MIDI input.

Miditure has been designed to exploit the expressive potential offered by 3D Touch capable devices (iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus), but is compatible with older devices as well.

Miditure includes a pad controller for sending MIDI note messages and an XY pad (XYZ pad if used with a 3D Touch capable device) for sending MIDI control change messages.

Each of the nine configurable pads can send from 1-4 notes with velocity, and on 3D Touch capable devices, polyphonic aftertouch.
Velocity can be set to use the devices accelerometer or can be determined from the location of the touch that triggered the pad.

The XY (XYZ) pad can be configured to send control change messages for up to 3 controls per axis.


  • Independent polyphonic aftertouch on 3D Touch capable devices (6s and 6s Plus)
  • Nine fully configurable pads for sending notes and chords
  • Each pad can play from 1-4 notes
  • 3 velocity modes: impact (using the accelerometer), position (vertical), and fixed
  • 7 velocity curves
  • The impact velocity sensitivity can be adjusted


  • z input (touch pressure) on 3D Touch capable devices (6s and 6s Plus)
  • 3 assignable Control Change outputs per axis; control up to 9 parameters at a time with one finger.
  • Adjustable range for each Control Change output.


  • Controls apps locally using coreMIDI, or control external software and hardware over Wi-Fi, or by using a compatible interface.
  • Save and load configurations


  • This is a MIDI controller, not an instrument, it does not make any sound itself.
  • The app can use bluetooth MIDI on compatible devices if the connect is established by another app, it does not have the capability to establish the connect itself.

Miditure costs $2.99 on the app store:

SoundLab Play Space Shout Out: Coding Cod

Many of you will already know the excellent LoopTree from Coding Cod, but what you won’t know is that Coding Cod will be joining me at the SoundLab Play Space this Wednesday to show off their app to a wide and diverse audience of musicians and educators.

It’s great to have people like these guys who are happy to help out at important events like the play space. I’m really looking forward to it and to meeting them for the first time too.
