Demo version of TouchDAW, a full-featured DAW controller with some general purpose MIDI tools. 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!
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.
The app needs some initial PC-side configuration. Please see website for help.
This is the feature-limited free version. Differences compared to paid version:
- randomly disables 3 channels on tablet interface
- recording, automation, saving, marker setting
- plugin, instrument and routing editors
- channel flipping on mixer
- multitouch operation time-limited
- no floating transport controls
- sensors, MIDI mode and MMC time-limited
- limited octave range on keyboard
- only one standing note on launchpads
Apart from these limitations the full version is identical. If you have issues with the demo, buying the full version is NOT going to fix them! (Reading the manual or contacting me via the developer email address given below eventually will)
Why doesn't this come as an unlockable freemium model? When the app was first released Android did not support in-app-purchases. Unfortunately it is not possible to change that in retrospect so the somewhat inconvenient demo / full version split will have to stay in place.
