MidiPad – The ultimate MIDI pad controller v2 arrives and its name is still quite a big claim

It’s a big claim to put in the title of any app and v2, whilst adding in some new functionality doesn’t do too much more. I’ve never tried out this app, but I do like that it is at least velocity sensing. Here’s the app description and the details of v2.

MidiPad is the most customizable Midi Pad Controller you will ever find! Using MidiPad you can send notes, program changes or controller events to Midi capable devices. The pads are velocity sensitive and you can add as many of them as you wish.


  • Very fast pad response with low latency
  • Multiple actions per pad
  • Pads can be push buttons or on/off switches
  • Group your pads with matching colors
  • Support for wireless Midi and Core Midi capable apps/devices

What’s New

Welcome to MidiPad 2.0! This version adds much requested support for multiple pages. It also includes many bug fixes, visual improvements and better performance.

MidiPad – The ultimate MIDI pad controller costs $2.99 on the app store now:

  1. This app should be great for practising one handed drumming chops keyboard drummer style. It will be good preparation for launchpad style controllers (when the next version of launchpad with useable velocity comes out) for those people who like to drum with their individual fingers rather than with one point per hand like a real drummer, or at least the top half of a real drumkit, without the pedals, MPC style that is.. In that case it is good to use layered sounds (kick+hihat etc.). One thing that strikes me immediately from the screenshots is that it should have been made in landscape mode. Portrait mode will be too narrow for four-fingered drumpad practise. The pads will be too narrow for single-stroke rolls, whether two handed or two fingered in general. All the same, not bad for practising the keyboard finger drummer style as i said earlier.. I am dubious about the claim to velocity sensitivity to say the least. Probably those yuppy apple execs (whose aim is to limit intelligence and creativity and simplify everything to one touch, brainwashing the youth) will insist that their must be some stupid limitation in one way or another which can annoy everyone. Both developers and app users.
