TouchDAW free


TouchDAW is a full-featured DAW controller plus some general purpose MIDI tools. It lets you remote control popular digital audio workstation 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 and Bitwig workstations. Standard functionality like mixer and transport operation will be accessible in other applications 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, native RTP MIDI implementations for Windows and ipMIDI. There is no computer side server or protocol conversion software required.
Later versions add support for MIDI over tethered USB connections, ADB and WebSockets. A free driver, available from our website, is required for those.
As of version 1.4 the app can also work with class-compliant USB MIDI interfaces on devices supporting USB host mode.

The apk contains both tablet and phone versions. You can safely ignore Google's "Designed for phones" tag.

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:

DAW controller:
- randomly disables 3 channels on tablet interface
- recording, automation, saving, marker setting disabled
- no plugin, instrument and routing editors
- no channel flipping on mixer

MIDI controllers:
- 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

Anything not iOS neglected Poor implementation on android and windows devices, relies on third party software that's pretty dam confusing to set up and requires a decent knowledge of network infrastructure. This shouldn't be an issue as I've dealt with other wifi based protocals that work well with a sever installed on the machine that communicates with programs via midi.

Excellent, I've been looking for this for quité a long time. Now I can remotely control my DAW (Reaper) with my Samsung tablet. I would like to upgrade to the paid one but I don't want to use my credit card number. It'll be great if the developer put PayPal as a payment option.

Android useless for anything audio or MIDI as usual Firstly, hooking through a network is no good because of latencies. That is the same with ipad. Secondly, you can't do add hoc connection on Android which is how you can get great results on the ipad. Thirdly, I have tried to hook this up to class compliant usb devices and it does partially communicate but it's screwed up. The app is also very confusing in set up. Not all the developers fault but forget Android compared to anything on ipad for this stuff. Android is an audio junk area. I give this three stars because the developers are trying but until Android has proper support for these things you can't expect to sell the apps.

Struggled with USB TouchDAW Thru Mode... but got it all working!! Hopefully this doesn't happen to anyone else (Windows 7 + Google Nexus 7), and this may have been my machine as much as anything but, for some reason, I got a duplicate ADB 2 entry in the Registry (which showed up in the TouchDAW Thru From Android Network Dropdown twice... and this somehow corrupted the MIDI Connection! Took me a few hours to figure out that these corrupt registry entries were causing the problem and to delete them, and reinstall the program (again, for some reason, uninstalling wasn't enough). In case anyone else has to do it: 1) Uninstall the software. 2) Run regedit and verify that the following entry is gone and, if it's not, delete it: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\tdaw_thru 3) Reinstall TouchDAW Thru and, assuming you have the Android App configured for USB in both DAW and MIDI Connections, click the little Android logo in the top banner menu to detect the ADB entries. Now I have VERY LOW LATENCY when using the piano and X-Y Pad and buttons. Oh, I used LoopMIDI to create the four MIDI Loopbacks necessary to do this and it worked GREAT! Oh, I should mention that I tested WiFi Multi-Cast and it worked VERY WELL!
