MIDI Sketch (formerly MIDI Editor) updated to v1.5.1

by Nikolozi Meladze

I rebranded the MIDI Editor app to MIDI Sketch. Mainly because MIDI editor means slightly different things to different people and they have certain expectations how it should function. My goal has always been the app to be a musical sketchpad. Therefore, I think, MIDI Sketch is a more apt name for it. As part of the rebranding process I updated the icon as well.

There will be another update or two coming next few months, but with this first update I wanted to add support for new iOS hardware. MIDI Sketch now supports bigger iPhone screens and iPad Pro. In addition, I’ve added home screen actions via 3D Touch that work on iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. You’ll be able to create a new clip or open a recent one.

Also, I fixed a few bugs that were bothering me a while now. This version requires iOS 9.2 or later. The reason I did this is because iOS 9.0 and 9.1 has a bug were MIDI sequencing API doesn’t work, rendering the app useless. I didn’t want customers on older iOS devices to experience this issue. So, I had to do it.

You can grab the app from the App Store. As usual, if you have any feedback don’t hesitate to contact me.
