App Description

Welcome to MidiPads, the professional and fully configurable drumpad controller, now also for your iPhone! This is a Midi controller for Network MIDI, virtual MIDI and iPhone connector MIDI interfaces. With Network MIDI, you can take your iPhone on stage and trigger your music wirelessly! Or imagine to be a DJ who can dance with the crowd while tuning in and playing the next track...

IMPORTANT: This is MIDI a controller app. It controls other MIDI capable music apps and devices, it won't produce ANY sounds itself.
