MIDI Control From Computer Keystrokes

Buying Choices
Easy MIDI turns your Mac keyboard, trackpad and mouse into a powerful MIDI keyboard controller. It sends MIDI notes and control messages to any soft synth or DAW such as GarageBand, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Cubase and Digital Performer. The makers say that this is very useful when you want to jot down some musical ideas quickly and easily whilst travelling, sitting in a coffee shop or even on your couch at home. They tell us that Easy MIDI even allows you to control iPad apps that support CoreMIDI or hardware synth via MIDI interface.
  • Send MIDI notes and control messages to any DAW or MIDI driver
  • Notes can be triggered using alphanumeric keys
  • Over 3 octaves under your fingertips
  • Easily change keyboard octave with up/down arrows
  • Visual feedback eliminates the need to look down on your Mac keyboard
  • Sustain on/off can be triggered with a space bar
  • Vertical scroll changes note velocity
  • Pitch bender can be controlled with a pinch zoom gesture or a vertical mouse drag
  • Modulation can be controlled with a rotation gesture or a vertical mouse move
