Simple and effective way to get MCU remote capabilities
on September 21, 2016
Simple, cheap and very effective way to get MCU remote capabilities for virtually every DAW
For $5 you can't go wrong with this app. It's the most simple DAW remote I've ever setup and it works great for Studio One, Sonar Platinum, Bitwig and Ableton. TouchDAW is also one of the few apps I've used that has never crashed on me. I've tested the USB tethering feature and that works great but I mostly use it over Wifi. I have various MIDI controllers, mostly designed for Ableton (my DAW of choice) and trying to get them to function in other software has caused me migraines (with the exception of Bitwig- thanks to their community support). I was debating about purchasing a Behringer X-Touch, but it doesn't make sense anymore when TouchDAW has the same features, and doesn't cost $600 (not to mention that you can find more uses for a tablet). I've decided that buying anymore dedicated hardware interfaces for music software seems ridiculous now, since a new device comes out every week. With apps like this or Splashtop XDisplay, which can turn your tablet into an extended touch display to dock your faders, etc, and give you tactile-like control. To be honest though, if you are only planning to use this on a phone, I don't see much of a point. But if you are getting into music production and are sick of always using a mouse to mix your tracks, I suggest picking up a cheap tablet with a decent sized screen and make TouchDAW your first app purchase. Considering the time, money and effort you'll be saving yourself, you'll be glad you did.
