Metagrid | Best Apps and Games 14 January,2019


Metagrid is a perfect companion for all creative Mac/Windows users who work with complex software like graphic suites, digital audio workstations or video-editing software. It enables you to streamline your workflow and control your favourite apps on Mac directly from your iPads (up to 4 devices at the same time) by sending:

– keyboard shortcuts
– text

iPhone 6

MIDI notes
MIDI Program Changes
– powerful macros

Metagrid is shipped with ready-to-use predefined view sets for popular creative apps like Illustrator, Photoshop, Protools, Logic X Pro, Digital Performer, Final Cut, Cubase, Studio One for Mac as well as Cubase, Digital Performer and Studio One for Windows. We will be adding more content for Windows soon.

Metagrid features deep integration with popular DAW applications like Logic Pro X, Cubase, Digital Performer and Studio One. You can choose from complete sets of commands available for these DAWs directly on your iPad and in no time assign them to your buttons.

Metagrid detects the application that is in focus on your computer and automatically displays the appropriate defined viewset. For custom views you can select several view sizes (from 6 up to 110 buttons).

Metagrid features hundreds of icons with dedicated sets for Illustrator, Photoshop, Protools, Final Cut, Digital Performer, Logic Pro X, Cubase and Studio One.

Metagrid can connect to your Mac/Windows computer through WiFi network and/or USB port.

IMPORTANT: The update may overwrite your database so remember to back up your data following the instructions in the manual. After the update you will be able to restore your backed-up custom viewsets following the instructions in the manual. For additional safety please back up your iPad to be able to revert to earlier Metagrid version.
