Topic: New iRemote skin: Performance Pad (for iPad)
The first release of my new skin "Performance Pad" for iRemote (for iPads) is available for download: http://www.virtualdj.com/addons/16130/Performance_Pad_for_iRemote.html
Inspired by midi controllers such as the Novation Launchpad, this skin is designed to allow you to easily perform live remixing and quickly access your samples.
There's two modes of operation.
The "Hot Cue" page gives you 20 hot cues per deck using large buttons to encourage easy live remixing. Switch between up to 4 decks using the deck selection buttons. Delete hot cues on the fly by toggling the delete button.
"Sampler" page (toggle between pages using the bottom left button) makes 12 sampler slots available, each with individual controls to Loop, "Sync" (beat match), Stop, and Record. Lock accidental recording by engaging "Lock Rec" and pick between deck 1 or 2 for recording. A volume control sets the volume for the most recently played sample*.
(*in a future version I'd like the volume control to change volume for all sample slots simultaneously but iRemote seems to struggle with this)
I've been playing with it doing some live remixing and it works pretty well. The only caveat is that you have to press the buttons a fraction of a second earlier than you would on a hard-wired MIDI controller because of the lag of it going wirelessly, and iRemote sorely misses multi-touch support, but it has a lot of possibilities for use if you can't afford an extra MIDI controller with pads.
Hope some of you find it useful. Comments welcome...
