Eyosido Software has updated eyoControl, a multi-MIDI controller app for iOS.

Eyosido eyoControl

As promised, a new revision of eyoControl is out and this is a rather big update: all new graphics (the website got some too!), local MIDI connectivity, VoiceOver support and more. These items plus others as detailed below respond to feedbacks we received from users since the 1.0 release, even though we could not cover them all in this update. So many thanks to those of you who took the time to send us their remarks, and we hope to receive even more so eyoControl can better respond to your needs. Also, you can watch a new demo video on the EyosidoSoft Youtube channel.

Changes in eyoControl v1.5

  • New graphics to the app and most of its controllers.
  • Local MIDI interface connectivity support: connecting your iPad to your synthesizer through an iPad MIDI interface or a USB to MIDI cable, you can then use mXY, Pad or Keys to control your MIDI instrument.
  • Accessibility support through VoiceOver in the app and all its controllers so eyoControl can be used by the vision-impaired.
  • New in Surface controller:
    • New visual design.
    • VoiceOver support: user interface elements report their name and function where applicable. Faders, knobs and sliders provide their current position, and context sensitive buttons such as track buttons report their current state. On the Panel page, banks report their number and content once enabled.
    • Larger Timecode display and scrub wheel.
    • Timecode display can now be switched between SMPTE and Bar/Beats.
    • Auto-init at startup (same as the INIT button but automatically called when launching the controller).
    • Next/Previous bank buttons (alternative to swipe on the fader area).
    • Track meters display can be toggled on/off.
  • New in Pad controller:
    • New visual design.
    • New input implementation, more reactive and latency effective.
    • VoiceOver support: each pad reports its currently assigned note, velocity slider reports its current position.
    • Support for multi-taps on a single pad.
    • Optional Fast Input Mode to prevent misses on very fast touches.
    • Pads are now colored by default.
  • New in Keys controller:
    • New visual design.
    • New input implementation, more reactive and latency effective.
    • VoiceOver support: the octave selector reports which octave is currently being touched, each keyboard key reports its assigned note, velocity sliders report their current position.
  • New in Transport controller:
    • Undo button for Marker operations (support is DAW dependent).
    • New button to toggle timecode display between SMPTE and Bar/Beats.
    • New scrub wheel visual design.
    • VoiceOver support.
  • New in mXY controller:
    • Default settings have been updated with different MIDI Continuous Controllers for each X/Y controller. Also the four X/Y controllers are now presented by default.
    • VoiceOver support.
    • Minor visual update.
  • Top-right connection icon on controllers is now visible only when connecting to eyoControl Server.
  • Fixed display glitches when starting a controller in landscape orientation.
