FeelYourSound has released version 2.8.0 of the XotoPad MIDI multi-touch software for Windows.

FeelYourSound XotoPad 2.8

XotoPad works with any MIDI enabled DAW and also includes a built-in audio engine with its own soundset.

XotoPad turns any Windows tablet into a flexible MIDI instrument controller. It can be used to replace a MIDI keyboard during travel. XotoPad is especially useful for sketching chord progressions, writing melodies, or to control the mixing section of a DAW. Over 300 scales are included to build own scale keyboards and chord pages within seconds.

Other features: GM drum maps, isomorphic layouts, MIDI sliders, faders, XY-controllers, CC switches, full screen mode, “always on top” mode,…

The update ships with over 200 of the most popular Major scale chord progressions, included as separate pages. Click on “Load/Save -> Load page”, open the “progressions” folder and pick a scale.

Each page is also available as a “minimal movement” version. In this version the chords are inverted up or down in such a way that the bass note moves as little as possible.

The update is free for existing customers. New users can purchase the software for 39 EUR/$45 USD.
