MIDI Rerouter is a simple tool designed to transform and remap MIDI signals in realtime. With an intuitive user interface, this will be an easy program to add to your collection.
Here are a few of the exciting applications of MIDI Rerouter:
- Use a sustain pedal to trigger a kick drum
- Use the pitch wheel to change a different MIDI Control
- Duplicate MIDI Note signals, transposing one signal to create harmony
- Play specific notes when MIDI Program Change signals are sent
- Generate MIDI Control signals by pressing a piano key, using Note Velocity to specify the Control value
In order to get the data flowing all the right directions, only three steps are necessary:
- Set up your MIDI devices*
- Select a MIDI input device and a MIDI output device from the list
- Create your Routes
- If a MIDI signal does not match a Route you add, that signal will be passed on unaltered.
- If a MIDI signal is taken in by two or more Routes, it will be sent along all of those Routes.
- MIDI Rerouter requires two MIDI devices: one for input, and one for output. If you want to send your MIDI signals directly on to a editing program (e.g. Pro Tools), you will need a Virtual MIDI Port. I recommend Tobias Erichsen's free LoopMIDI program, available here: http://www.tobias-erichsen.de/software/loopmidi.html
- If you have more than one Virtual MIDI Ports available, you can string together multiple instances of MIDI Rerouter!
