Five Controller Modes

Slider

Divide the trackpad into virtual sliders and send CC or Pitch Bend MIDI messages. Add expressiveness to virtual instruments or automate plugins parameters easily with a trackpad. Edit photos faster in Lightroom.

XY

Use your trackpad as an XY pad to control multiple parameters at the same time, using one, two and three fingers configurations. A great MIDI tool for mobile producers and sound designers.

Trigger

Make quick beats using your trackpad as trigger pads. Play melodies in a given key with MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE). Trigger chords with single taps. Up to three fingers can be used at the same time.

Mixer

Control one or two faders at the same time using simple gestures. Move pan, set the send's levels, use your trackpad as a jog wheel, and write automation in a quick and easy way. This mode is currently supported in Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Reaper, Cubase and Studio One.

Scale

Choose a tonic note and then select a scale. Slide your fingers from left to right to play notes in the selected key. Apply pressure to the trackpad and it will send aftertouch MIDI messages (aftertouch requires a trackpad with Force Touch).

“AudioSwift is incredibly well designed and, after an acclimatisation period, admirably easy to use.”

8/10 Computer Music Issue 255

“AudioSwift 2, with its ability to tailor CC messages for custom control over instrument parameters, makes it perfect for users seeking deep real-time control over their software instruments.”
