Pure Chords is the smoothest and easiest ever Android MIDI keyboard and controller
Pure Chords lets you control any MIDI capable software of hardware with your Android phone or tablet. The app includes a two octave keyboard, five sliders, five toggle switches, and two x/y grids. A randomizing LFO and a randomize button allow for unique experimentation, and the keyboard can be placed in a special drone mode.
Pure Chords works by communicating MIDI information over the network between the app and a server on the computer that listens to and manages incoming data from the app. You can choose from various servers depending on your workflow, the programs you use and your preference. At the moment the options include a dedicated Max4Live device for working in Ableton, a dedicated device device for the Sonic Core Scope system and a generic standalone server that is independent of any specific program.
