The free MIDI Shape Shifter for Windows was updated to version 1.0.7 Beta, addeding several bug fixes mostly to do with the mapping dialog.

MIDI Shape Shifter (MSS) is a VST MIDI plugin for mapping, generating and transforming MIDI data. This plugin’s simple and flexible interface is capable of satisfying a wide range of MIDI needs.

MIDI Shape Shifter features

  • Mapping—The mapping component allows users to map a given range of MIDI messages to any other range of MIDI messages. MIDI Shape Shifter also has some of its own message types that can be used in mappings. For example, a user could map a CC message to a “Generator Toggle” message which would cause a generator in the application to be toggled on or off when the CC message is received.
  • Generating—This component is essentially used to create highly customizable LFOs. These LFOs can be synced to the tempo of the host or set to repeat at a constant frequency. The shape of each LFO is then specified in the Transformation component.
  • Transforming—Each mapping and each generator will have a transformation associated with it. Transformations determine how messages will be modified. For example a transformation could apply a velocity curve to a mapping of note on messages. Transformations can either be manually input or created from one of the presets.

The MIDI Shape Shifter for Windows (VST) is available to download at no cost.
