Pure Chords Android Controller - first complete solution!

Grab Pure Chords for Android phones here:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... PureChords

Pure Chords is the smoothest and easiest ever OSC keyboard and controller.

- NO hassle fiddling with OSC messages!
- NO hassle fiddling with dodgy setting up!
- WORKS straight out-of-the-box-plug-n-play!

For the first time a complete solution for controlling ANY soft or hardware synths from your phone!

All it takes is for you to enter your IP address and point port 9000 to your music PC!

Once you download and install the app also download our companion PC program that listens to the app. You open the Pure Chords app, you open the tiny pc-side Pure Chords Server, you chose the midi driver you want to use on your pc and that's it!

* You must have available MIDI drivers for both your DAW and Pure Chords if you would like to use your phone to control DAW plugins. If that is not available with your setup look into a virtual midi driver like loopMIDI, LoopBe1 or Hubi's Loopback MIDI Driver to add some virtual drivers.

looks really cool Faxi.
i might be interested in using my previous phone with this.
Not really interested in tiny keyboards but maybe just a screen with expression controllers, ribbon sliders and/or switches?

in depth setup explanation! this works on ANY computer and the daw does not matter - all you need is to set it up one time with the network and virtual midi as explained and you are always good to go! in this video i am showing an aging mid-range laptop without any special soundcard or midi devices sets everything up in 2-3 minutes and runs smoothly :)

Can you make it touch sizable so it fits on a tablet nicely? May be more controllers like faders and knobs?

right now it loads on tablets but doesn't make use of the extra space and constrains to the tablet center. work on updates to make it make use of 7" and 10" tablets already in progress and it should be out within the next days :) of course, you buy one time for all your devices.

about more controllers - that would be a separate future device, this one is meant to be bread n butter :)

Hi Faxi, will you be making a client for iOS? I don't have an android device any more.

Also can you check your PM, as I sent you a message a few days ago. Thanks.

Cheers

my other apps are back up too! they are "normal" OSC apps that can be used with any OSC capable software

OSC.One
One scalable, resizable, randomizable, clean and easy to use OSC slider, knob, xy or trigger. Customize the type, behavior, color, size, curve, data type and range. Random features allow Randomizing the control value manually or with a tempo based LFO.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... rds.OSCone

OSC.Aeolian
OSC.Aeolian provides 16 sliders for control over OSC protocol.
Each slider can be either controlled directly by touch or triggered to generate a random value.

in the next day or two scope osc server will be released

it is going to be free but an insane amount of work goes on inside, it is a super clever device ;) <3

please consider it "supportware", support my apps if you think you will be using the scope osc server :)

Find delay times, LFO frequencies and sample lengths from BPM and division.

Enter your song's BPM and the time division you would like to see values for, press calculate and get results for time in milliseconds, frequency in hertz and sample counts for various sample rates.
