Metasystem has announced the release of Metagrid 1.5, an update to the elegant and intuitive solution for iPad that enables you to control any application on your Mac/PC through Wifi or USB connection.

Metagrid 1.5

Each button can be assigned with powerful macros consisting of keyboard shortcuts and MIDI messages. Metagrid is deeply integrated with popular DAW applications like Cubase, Logic Pro X and Ableton Live giving you access to thousands of DAW-related commands right on your iPad.

Unlike many controller applications, Metagrid can be fully customised to meet the needs of any PC/Mac user. It has become the controller of choice for many composers, musicians and video editors, making their work more efficient, faster and more enjoyable. With Metagrid, selecting the solo violin track in your large orchestral project or adding a frequently used phrase to your email is just a finger tap away.

Metagrid 1.5 comes with new features and enhancements that take the popular controller app to the next level. The new additions include:

  • Deep integration with Dorico and Ableton Live.
  • Import and export buttons, views and viewsets through your Dropbox account.
  • Entire database backup through your Dropbox account.
  • OmniSpace – the dedicated workspace that doesn’t respond to changing applications in focus on your computer.
  • Manual connection setup option through QR code scanning

Metagrid 1.5 features new streamlined view/button/action editors that greatly enhance creating custom workspaces. And thanks to over 1,500 new beautiful icons including over 400 music notation icons based on the Bravura font, Metagrid will perfectly blend in any creative environment.

Metagrid is available from the App Store for $29.99 USD. The version 1.5 update is free for the existing users.
