BEATSURFING is an iPad Organic MIDI Controller Builder. It allows you to draw a 3-dimensional controller and use it in two different and complementary ways. You can tap it like you would with your regular MPC or any other beatmaking device, but the best and most innovative use you can make of it is definitely by surfing your fingers along routes, colliding with objects, triggering samples or effects. It’s all about movement, and bringing back this intuitive way to make music.
It can control any MIDI-enabled device (Software, Hardware, or even selected iPad apps), features a very intuitive in-app editing system and integrates seemlessly in any existing Studio or Live setup. Objects Behaviours can be set to link objects together and multiply the available commands on the surface of the iPad.
Work with the Controller you need, not the one you were given. Simply draw it on the screen with lines, polygons, circles and faders. Size, color, orientation and 3-Dimensional position are all yours to choose.
Surf with your fingers along custom routes, colliding with objects, triggering samples or effects. It’s all about movement, and letting you play a complete piece of music guided by your feelings and intuitions.
The power of MIDI: Control Production/DJ/VJ software, any enabled Hardware device or even selected iPad Apps through the Internal CoreMIDI routing!
