The description of TouchDAW
TouchDAW is a full-featured DAW controller plus some general purpose MIDI tools. It lets you remote control popular DAW software as known from standard hardware control surfaces.
This is a MIDI controller! The app does not itself play or record audio!
Try before buy! Free demo available for testing.
Supports Cubase / Nuendo, Live, Logic, Pro Tools, Sonar, FL Studio, REAPER, Reason, Studio One, Samplitude, SAWStudio Digital Performer (7.2+), Vegas / Acid, Tracktion, Bitwig, Ardour & Mixbus workstations. Standard functionality like mixer and transport operation will be accessible in other applications with basic control surface support as well. As of version 1.1 the app can also send MIDI Machine Control (MMC) in parallel with or alternatively to standard DAW control.
Besides control surface emulation, the app brings a number of general purpose MIDI controllers, such as a multitouch MIDI keyboard, multitouch launchpads, a MIDI mixer, configureable xy-controller pads and the possibility to link a phone's sensors to MIDI controllers.
TouchDAW works with RTP or multicast MIDI over WiFi and is directly compatible with Apple's Network MIDI implementation in Mac OS X, Tobias Erichsen's rtpMIDI driver for Windows and ipMIDI (resp. multimidicast or qmidinet on Linux). There is no computer side server or protocol conversion software other than the driver required.
Class compliant MIDI interfaces are supported on devices with Usb host mode. Direct device to PC Usb connectivity is available both via the Android 6 MIDI Api as well as over tethered USB connections or ADB. A free driver, available from our website, is required for some of the proprietary solutions.
The apk contains both tablet and phone versions. Most recent phones will let you alternatively use the tablet layout.
Please try before you buy! The free version is mostly identical and will let you check if things are useable with your network setup before spending money.
The app needs some initial PC-side configuration, please see website for help.
