TransMIDIfier provides convenient
MIDI routing and virtual instrument patch switching and customization for the
working musician. TransMIDIfier works by functioning as a "middle man"
between the sequencer and the sample player. TransMIDIfier reinterprets the
incoming MIDI data in powerful ways before passing it along to the sample player.
- Switch among instrument patches
from a single MIDI track via keyswitches or program changes, regardless of
- Selectively combine multiple,
arbitrary instrument patches from different manufacturers to create powerful
- Apply transformations to MIDI
data to customize instrument behavior and performance.
TransMIDIfier Introduction Video
Version 2.0.1 - October 20, 2013:
New in Version 2.0.1:
- Fixed bug causing improper
saving & loading in Note Filter transform.
New in Version 2.0:
- Output activation method is now done on the input side.
- Outputs can be activated by controllers in addition to note on messages (keyswitches) and program changes.
- Outputs can be activated via value "ranges" instead of specific values.
- Patch delay can now be randomized up to a certain number of milliseconds. Click on the little "clock" icon to the left of the delay time entry box to toggle between constant and random delay time. When in random mode, the MIDI messages will be delayed randomly from 0 to the specified time in milliseconds. This feature can lend a great deal of "humanization" to quantized parts.
- Inputs and patches can now have their MIDI input/output set to "(none)", to effectively make the input/patch inactive.
- Previously a specific MIDI channel was required in all MIDI port/channel selectors. Now "Any" MIDI channel can be selected in inputs and patches.
- Ability to "merge" outputs. Patches from one input can be added to another according to output activation method or naming.
- Color coding! Inputs, outputs and patches can all have a "color label" specified via the right-click context menu. The chosen color appears along the left edge of the object's panel. The color values and their descriptive names can be customized in the preferences dialog. (Quick tip: the left edge of the input, output and patch panels have a special right-click context menu that's only for the color label)
- The lowest note on 88-key MIDI keyboard (MIDI note number 21) activates the input that receives it. This is very handy to be able to see the available outputs without having to look around for the input being fed by the record armed MIDI track. In the future this "special event that activates an input" will be customizable.
- Many new keyboard shortcuts and much more extensive support for modifier keys. Two examples: Shift+ usually means "for all" and Alt+ usually means "from here on."
- More extensive support for copying, duplicating and adding inputs/outputs/patches (via right-click context menu).
- More extensive "What's This?" support for UI elements. (press Ctrl+F1 or go to Help -> What's This? and then click on something to find out about it)
- New "Note" transforms: Velocity Variation, Ignore All Notes
- New "Control" transform: Ignore All Controllers
- New "Aftertouch" transforms: Channel Aftertouch To CC, Ignore Channel Aftertouch
- "Copy Output Descriptions" option in input right-click context menu places a textual description of that input's outputs (names, activation values/ranges) into the system clipboard. This can be used to easily notate the available outputs in a DAW track note area.
- Transpose transform now has an "octaves" entry.
- Multiple transform editors can now be open at once, and the locations of the editors are preserved. Close all transform editors at once by shift+clicking on one of the close buttons.
- New "Check For Updates..." menu item checks server to see if a TransMIDIfier update is available (Internet connection required).
- New progress dialog shows progress of file open and save operations.
- Fixed intermittent crash when opening setup files while MIDI is being processed.
- Fixed crash when attempting to reorder patches on Mac OS X.
- Fixed intermittent crash when renaming outputs or patches on Mac OS X.
- Lots of other little bug fixes.
