Nikolozi Meladze has released Easy MIDI, an app that turns your Mac keyboard, trackpad and mouse into a powerful MIDI keyboard controller.
It sends MIDI notes and control messages to any soft synth or DAW such as GarageBand, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Cubase and Digital Performer.
This is very useful when you want to jot down some musical ideas quickly and easily whilst travelling, sitting in a coffee shop or even on your couch at home.
Easy MIDI even allows you to control iPad apps that support CoreMIDI or hardware synth via MIDI interface.
