ActionPad - iOS Custom Control Panels for Desktop

I started using this app for building custom keyboard layouts for controlling PC/mac programs over wifi. I am loving it with Samplitude.

Very very cool and only $1

  • It takes deliberate planning to maximize a lazy day! Nice.

  • This actually looks really useful to me and my endeavors. How is the connection, given a reliable WiFi network is available. Any lag or delay business going on?

  • Tempted but was waiting to see if Metagrid goes on sale, which is similar but also does midi.

    While using it I don't experience lag. The intial connection / pairing can be delayed by a little but once it connects all is well.

    If I had one of the directly supported DAWs I would consider getting it. I am just not sure what I get for 15$ aside from maybe nicer icons. For a buck, I am quite happy.

  • Setup for entering chords in Band in a box.

  • Not a fan of the fact that ActionPad uses Java :( Metagrid looks amazing, will have to give that a shot. Thank for the heads-up @Carnbot.

    Hmm, that sounds like a good reason to pony up for metagrid.

    Are they know to be hacked?

  • Woah, just making an interface for Renoise and the latency on Metagrid (USB or wifi) is surprisingly really poor compared to ActionPad. Me smells refundo.
