expressionPad is a flexible, multi-touch, continuous-pitch MIDI controller with a built-in synth and sampler. expressionPad’s continuous pitch control means you can smoothly slide from one pitch to the next as you drag from one note to the next — and this control extends to every individual touch on the surface — up to ten on an iPad.
Moreover, the actual key arrangement of the controller is highly configurable, including guitar tunings, piano keyboards, and a large selection of modes and scales. expressionPad offers musicians a way to leverage their natural dexterity — consider texting on your phone, or a Nintendo controller — and apply that to musical expression. With dozens of options, a flexible synthesizer, and CoreMIDI support, expressionPad is both a great way to find new musical ideas or control your external rigs.
“AudioKit made building expressionPad easy. AudioKit streamlined the development of expressionPad’s audio engine so that I could focus on innovating and refining expressionPad’s interface. I didn’t have to compromise on complexity or performance. Whether it was AudioBus support, writing custom SysEX messages or expressionPad’s flexible, effects-laden additive synthesizer, AudioKit had me covered.”
