Modify MIDI messages in real-time.

Overview

MidiPipe is freeware and comes with no warranties. MidiPipe can be useful in a music studio or live on stage to route, map, filter, convert, display, input and output MIDI messages in real-time.

Right now it comes with the following tools:
  • Midi In - connects a MIDI input to the pipe
  • Midi Out - connects a MIDI output to the pipe
  • AList - outputs messages to the screen
  • Message Converter - converts messages from one type to an other
  • Delay - delays the time for when the message is scheduled
  • Transpose - transposes note to multiple keys, set velocity, delay and channel for each
  • Message Filter - filters by messages
  • Channel Filter - filters by channel
  • Channel Router - routes channels
  • Keyboard Split - moves note on/off messages above/below a split point to a different channel
  • Randomizer - randomly changes any parameter value(s) of any channel message(s)
  • Keyboard - play a on screen keyboard with your mouse or keys; will display arriving messages too
  • MicroTuner - apply different scales
  • Set - set any parameter value(s) of any channel message(s) to any value
  • Duration - add a delay between Note On and Note Off messages
  • Control Split - inverse, limit, scale, fade in/out, route and map MIDI controllers
  • Control Slider - simple slider for control message input
  • AppleScript Trigger - use the power of AppleScript to implement everything you want
  • (N)RPN Mapper - map (N)RPNs
  • Velocity Modifier - scale, shift, and clip the velocity of Note On and Note Off messages
  • SMF Player - plays up to 128 MIDI Files; handles Song Select, Start/Stop/Continue messages
  • Key Mapper - map keys
  • DLS Synth - user interface for Apple's DLS Synth
  • Message Factory - trigger your own messages with static and variable data bytes
  • Double Filter - filters identical messages
  • Monophonic - make monophonic

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

brilliant. the hercules dj console for mac has its buttons set as continous controllers for some unknown reason of utter stupidity. one hour from downloading midipipe, i've now got all the buttons on the controller giving note on/off messages. hallelujah. the gui could do with a little work, being able to duplicate pipe objects would have saved a lot of time.

PureData will certainly do this, though it is overkill as it does a million other things too…

So Good!. I could not do what I do without this program. My Pipes keep getting more and more complicated. Haha Just wondering, is there anyway to rout a virtual output back into one of the virtual inputs? could bore you with the details of why I need this, but it would be so friggen handy Cheers Jeremy

okay, I think I figured it out, but seems a dodgy way of doing it. I downloaded the program twice and renamed one "router" instead of MidiPipe. with two versions of the program open at once, I am able to select a virtual output as an input in the Midi In tool... haven't tested it yet though...

I was hoping for the Yamaha ez ag midi gtr velocity fix. It appeared to be set up correctly but wasn't filtering out the notes when fingering the frets. I'm using Sampletank in Pro Tools le.

Hi, this software is awesome! One feature request;) How about being able to make child pipes? Say I want to use the key mapper feature but then I want to make it change the keys depending on the incoming velocity. Example: I use this software mainly when I´m playing the Yamaha DTXplorer midi drum kit (there´s no way of changing the midi mapping in there), into EZdrummer running on Pro Tools. The problem is that none of those speak together correctly since EZdrummer doesn´t use the GM drum setup. Using midi pipe I am able to remap the incoming notes to the correct samples but I can´t make them change depending on the note velocity thus changing the sample (key) when Hit soft, med or hard. Anyway, your software rocks big time! Thank you so much.

There are very good MIDI tutorials out there: http://www.midi.org/about-midi/tutorial/tutor.shtml If you understand MIDI, understanding MidiPipe is quite simple.

ZERO DOCUMENTATION! It looks obvious, but after a couple hours of tinkering, I accomplished nothing. A tutorial of any sort would make this program accessible to people.

Please take a look at the "Use" section of the "ReadMe.rtf" for a quick introduction. Also look at the many examples in the Examples folder. If you have more questions you might find the answer in the MidiPipe forum: http://www.bigbluelounge.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=14379 or send me an Email: nicowald@mac.com Regards, Nico
