  • Filter outgoing MIDI data on each output
  • Merge incoming inputs to one or more outputs
  • Split incoming MIDI data (using filters) across any set of outputs

Other features:

  • Events can be filtered by type (Note/Program/Controller/Sysex/Aftertouch/TimeSong) and MIDI channel
  • MIDI interface ports can be given a user friendly name
  • Initiates CoreMIDI network connections from your iOS device
  • Visual indication of what is connected to where at all times
  • Visual indication of MIDI events received, sent and blocked
