AudioSwift 2.1 Adds MIDI Polyphonic Expression For Your Trackpad
AudioSwift, the app for macOS that turns a trackpad into a MIDI controller, has been updated to version 2.1. This update offers a new design of the Trigger Mode that now supports MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) for multidimensional control of many parameters per note, within MPE compatible software. The trackpad becomes an ultra compact MPE controller for music production and sound design.
Users in Trigger Mode can play quick melodies in a chosen key with polyphonic expression. Horizontal and vertical movements send pitch bend and control change messages per MIDI note. This version also adds a new type called Chords that lets trigger a pad and play a chord, helping the user generate chord progressions easily.
