AudioSwift has announced an update to its macOS app that lets you use a trackpad as a MIDI controller.
Version 2.1 introduces a new design of the Trigger Mode with MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) support for multidimensional control of many parameters, 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 adds a new type called Chords that lets trigger a pad and play a chord, helping the user generate chord progressions easily.
