Description

BEATSURFING - THE 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 through Virtual MIDI), 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.

It’s been developed by Herrmutt Lobby & Yaniv De Ridder.

It’s based on concepts Herrmutt Lobby developed for Hardware MIDI controllers (like the Beatfader and the MIDI scratch devices).

Released by VLEK.
PR & Communication coordination by Julien Fournier.

---------------------------------------------

→ Draw your own controller
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 location are all yours to choose.

→ Surf!
Use the full potential of the iPad touchscreen: You can tap on the screen, but you better add the Surfing to your production and performance skills to integrate more of that human feel in your music.

→ Link any MIDI device
Dj, VJ, Production softwares, Hardware devices, and even selected iPad apps: you can route BEATSURFING to anything that allows for MIDI.

→ Objects Behaviours
Each object of your controller can be set to control the others. It creates a system of objects that allow you to add much more to a controller than what meets the eye.

→ Intuitive In-App editing
Forget about separated editing software, lenghty changes and whatnot. You can swap between the EDIT and PLAY modes at the tap of a finger. All your objects even remain playable when they’re be re-arranged!

From a hater to a fan

I started off very mad with this app, however, after getting to know it, I can say its quite cool. You should know that on its own its useless. It's a MIDI controller, so you have to have something to control. I've been using Sunriser and NLog Pro. You can assign each to a MIDI channel and use them simultaneously.

After figuring this thing out, I like it even more than Audiobus.
