Software

The airpiano hardware doesn’t produce any sounds. It communicates with the custom airpiano software on your pc or mac. The software can send MIDI and Open Sound Control (OSC) messages to other software or hardware. When you trigger a key or a fader in the air, the software registers your actions and sends messages out accordingly. You can create numerous arrangement presets combining keys and faders, assigned with different properties and message types.

 

 

Here are the main software features:

* Create and save arrangement presets
* Assign keys and faders with MIDI messages (OSC messages are sent automatically)
* Assign keys with preset-load messages (allows loading presets directly from the device)
* Set momentary button functionality
* Set pedal / foot switch functionality (MIDI CC , Global Velocity or Preset Loader)
