iPhone app to control ND2

Postby dortola » 10 May 2016, 21:12

Hi! I'm looking for the best midi app for iPhone to sequence the ND2.
It has to be compatible with iPhone (not just the iPad), and Line6 Midi Mobilizer II.
I need to record 6 tracks at least (one per midi ch). More functions would be nice to have, but 6 midi tracks are OK and enough for me.
Any suggestions? I've been looking and searching the web, but the information you get before buy an app is always incomplete, or at least that was my perception after several weeks of searching.
Thanks in advance!
Daniel.

Little Midi Machine is free, iPhone compatible, fully configurable. I'm not fully certain if it's available anymore tho.

Elastic Drums is compatible with the iPhone (iOS 8+), can send MIDI notes out. Looks like it outputs starting at C1 (36) and uses the chromatic scale. I haven't found a configuration for notes out yet, so you might need to configure the MIDI on your ND2. It's pricey but I still recommend it because it's an excellent drum machine besides its MIDI capability.

Here's another one, Fingerlab DM1. Can send MIDI notes out but doesn't look configurable, sends on CH 1, Note 36 and up, chromatic scale. Def need to configure the ND2 MIDI settings. However, it's cheap at $2.

All that said, yeah the best ones are iPad only. Of course there's Nord Beat 2 but my favorite is Patterning because it has probability per step. I bought a refurbished iPad Air 1 direct from Apple recently, they're down to $279 at this point.

Hi rhombus! Thank you for your help! I'm looking for those apps already!.
By the way, a friend told me about BeatMaker 2, which I will also check.

Best regards!
Daniel.
