About this app

DAW IT provides 6 useful MIDI utilities:
FADERS - 3D PADS - BUTTONS - KEY SWITCHES - AFTERTOUCH - SUSTAIN and HOLD

You can fully control the expression of your software synthesizers by assigning MIDI controllers to any function depending on your soft synths capabilities.
Of course, you can do the same for your hardware synths if you connect them to your DAW.
Unlike other apps on the market, you can save any group of functions as Presets inside a file which is called Profile. Each Profile can hold multiple Presets, so it’s very easy to group them and recall them later or share them with your friends and partners.

MAIN FUNCTIONS

1) FADERS
Add up to 40 faders per preset, organize them into groups of your favorite instruments or effects and assign to them their corresponding MIDI controllers. Name each group with a text label.
Customize the look by selecting fader type, fader color, background color, number of rows and more.

2) 3D PADS
Usually the XY Pads let you control 2 MIDI Controllers with 1 finger on a square surface. With our app you can use a second finger to control a 3rd MIDI controller, that's why we call this function 3D Pads.
Imagine to control Dynamics, Expression and Vibrato Depth of a Cello section, all in real time!

3) BUTTONS
120 buttons per Preset, each button has two states (MIDI Controller and Program change), that you can swap on the fly one by one or all together.
As a result this gives you 240 buttons in total, 120 per panel of the same state or mixed up.
This is the right place to setup a Generic MIDI Remote Control for your DAW.

4) KEY SWITCHES
Have you noticed that many soft synths use the lower or upper octaves as switches for the user to change the sound state?
For example you can change your Violins section from Legato to Pizzicato or Spiccato with just a touch.
DAW IT provides you with all 10 1/2 octaves to use as Key Switches!

5+6) AFTERTOUCH - SUSTAIN
Do you own a small or cheap MIDI keyboard without Aftertouch or Sustain pedal?
Just tap the AT button on DAW IT and enjoy the use of one Aftertouch fader and two buttons, Sustain and Hold.

SPECIAL TOOL

AUXILIARY PANEL
Each of the four Main Functions (Faders, 3D Pads, Buttons, Key Switches) can be opened as an Auxiliary Panel which gives the user the opportunity to work with two different functions of DAW IT simultaneously.

REQUIREMENTS
DAW IT is compatible with Android 6 or later versions of Android.
It uses the USB port of your mobile device to send MIDI messages to your DAW. No extra drivers or hardware needed.

Beautiful and as far as I know works as promised. Was hoping it might support Bluetooth MIDI and/or internal virtual MIDI ports, which it does not (and doesn't advertise as doing) at the moment.

Don't give up on configuring on your computer, because sometimes it seems confusing. But once configuring done this app works seamlessly. Highly recommend. I'm using this to control Resolume Arena.

Thank you for your feedback and your recommendation. We are at the final stages of developing the second version which is an improvement in every aspect in comparison with the first version. Stay tuned and keep on creating!

Truth be told, I bought it under a mistaken assumption about what it was for, but I appreciated the mission from a technical perspective and can see this is a quality piece of work from a specialist development studio. I had to do a refund and wanted to avoid being some algorithm statistic counting against them, so I'm rating 5 with no regrets. It is not DAW, it's me. As barely even a hobbyist musician, I look forward to maybe having an opportunity to exploring midi devices and this app someday
