Description

TouchDAW is a full-featured DAW controller plus some general purpose MIDI tools. It lets you remote control popular DAW software as known from standard hardware control surfaces.

This is a MIDI controller! The app does not itself play or record audio!
Try before buy! Free version available for testing.


Supports Cubase / Nuendo, Live, Logic, Pro Tools, Sonar, FL Studio, REAPER, Reason, Studio One, Samplitude, SAWStudio Digital Performer (7.2+), Vegas / Acid, Tracktion and Bitwig workstations. Standard functionality like mixer and transport operation will be accessible in other applications with basic control surface support as well. As of version 1.1 the app can also send MIDI Machine Control (MMC) in parallel with or alternatively to standard DAW control.

Besides control surface emulation, the app brings a number of general purpose MIDI controllers, such as a multitouch MIDI keyboard, multitouch launchpads, a MIDI mixer, configureable xy-controller pads and the possibility to link a phone's sensors to MIDI controllers.

TouchDAW works with RTP or multicast MIDI over WiFi and is directly compatible with Apple's Network MIDI implementation in Mac OS X, Tobias Erichsen's rtpMIDI driver for Windows and ipMIDI (resp. multimidicast or qmidinet on Linux). There is no computer side server or protocol conversion software other than the driver required.
Class compliant MIDI interfaces are supported on devices with Usb host mode. Direct device to PC Usb connectivity is available both via the Android 6 MIDI Api as well as over tethered USB connections or ADB. A free driver, available from our website, is required for some of the proprietary solutions.

Please note that with version 1.6.5 the app has been officially feature closed and put into maintenance mode. We will continue to support it - adapt to changes in future Android versions, fix bugs where necessary, answer support requests that reach us via email or the app's website, etc. - but there will not be any more features added. Please do not buy it in expectation of monthly updates or prompt implementation of all the great ideas you may have. TouchDAW is not going to become a DJ tool (it never was meant to be), no more DAW presets will be added (you can define your own profiles on tablets), it will not get more faders (the protocol only supports 8 per unit), etc. It's time to move on.

The apk contains both tablet and phone versions. You can safely ignore Google's "Designed for phones" tag.

Please try before buy! The free version is mostly identical and will let you check if things are useable with your network setup before spending money.

The app needs some initial PC-side configuration, please see website for help.

Problems, questions, suggestions? Please use website or email. The Play Store's comment section is not a support channel and help calls you leave here will not be answered.
