Peter Vogel is best known in the IOS music world for his accurate emulation of the vintage Fairlight Synthesizer. Now he updated both apps with a new improved Midi engine. I can’t tell you anything about the app because I don’t have / use it. Main reason, the app is for me to expensive currently. If there is one day a massive sale, I will for sure jump on it. Here some informations about this significant update.
What’s new in CMI & CMI Pro 2.3
- A new MIDI engine allows connection via the most common Virtual MIDI protocol – OMAC/MidiBus
- Tapping the on-screen keyboard’s MIDI display brings up a MIDI control panel that allows you to turn on and off all the physical and virtual MIDI inputs, and allows you to connect to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE MIDI) devices.
- Now responds to a few MIDI continuous controllers:
- Modulation wheel input: controls vibrato (LFO)
- Controller 7: main amplifier gain
- Controller 10: pan
- Please let us know what other controllers you want, doing what.
- Now responds to MIDI MMC messages if a song has been loaded in Page R:
- START: starts playing the song from the beginning
- STOP: pauses song playback
- CONTINUE: continues playing from where it paused
- note that although MMC messages are processed, CLOCK IN is not used. The CMI app can not yet synch to an external clock source.
- Experimental – sends MIDI MMC messages if a song has been loaded in Page R:
- START: when the song starts playing from the beginning
- STOP: when the song pauses song playback
- CONTINUE: when the song continues playing from where it paused
- CLOCK: (yes, much requested) a standard MIDI 24-ticks-per-quarter-note clock is output while the song is playing. Please let us know how Clock Out works for you.
- Allows audio output via Bluetooth
- Fixes the Page R invisible music keyboard on smaller iPhones
- Fixes a bug where newly inserted notes in Page R sometimes did not play
- Fixes edited waveform not playing sometimes; displays warning if edited waveform is not saved
- Fixes the inability to connect as an IAA input for apps such as Auria
- Fixes the MIDI pitch wheel input, which was getting stuck at a semitone low.
- The CMI app is now once again visible in MidiBridge, so it can receive MIDI from non-Core-Midi devices not directly supported by the CMI app.
- Fixes the crunchy sound on the startup song.
