TouchDAW free

TouchDAW free


Demo version of TouchDAW, a full-featured DAW controller with some general purpose MIDI tools. 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 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, native RTP MIDI implementations for Windows and ipMIDI. There is no computer side server or protocol conversion software other than the driver 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 be used 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
time limited:
- recording, automation, saving, marker setting
- plugin, instrument and routing editors
- 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

Set up is stupid with Samplitude Pro X2 BUT... This is the most ridiculous things to set up. Wasted a day trying out all the different ways to make this work. None of them did, until I tried rtp using MIDIhub. There are a few bugs that cause sticky key press and sometimes sound doesn't play when using the keyboard or pads, then I hit play on the transport and all the presses play at once and then it works again... for the most part, after the headache of setting it up, this works quite well. Not better than hardware, but if you need a portable cheap mix

Does not function Tried with logic 9 and after finally finding out how to setup, it turned out it's not capable of recording or playing either. Can't seem to arm tracks either, totally pointless and not worth downloading.

Not very user friendly Instructions are too geared towards Cubase with limited resources for other programs... which means anything other than using the basic features is a waste of time.
