TouchDAW is a full-featured DAW control and general purpose MIDI control app for Android™ tablets and phones. It allows you to remote control popular digital audio workstation software as known from standard hardware control surfaces.

Version 1.7  [Release Notes]  has dedicated support for Cubase / Nuendo, Live, Logic, Pro Tools, Sonar, FL Studio, Reason, REAPER, Studio One, Samplitude, SAWStudio, Digital Performer, Acid Pro / Vegas, Tracktion and Bitwig workstations. Standard functionality in other DAWs with basic MCU support will be accessible alike.

TouchDAW is built upon nmj. If you are looking for standards compliant ways to do MIDI on Android, hop over and download the library.

Besides control surface emulation, the app brings a number of general purpose MIDI controllers, such as a multitouch keyboard, multitouch launchpads, a MIDI mixer, configureable xy-controller pads and the possibility to link a phone's sensors to MIDI controllers.

TouchDAW works with RTP or multicast MIDI over WIFI. Later versions added support for USB, wired LAN and - given the hardware supports USB host mode - class-compliant MIDI interfaces. It is directly compatible with Apple's Network MIDI implementation in Mac OS X, native RTP MIDI implementations for Windows and ipMIDI. For most connection methods there is no computer side server or protocol conversion software required.

Quickstart     Video


The app is available from the Play Store in a full featured paid and a limited free version. It will work on devices running Android version 2.2 or higher and supports screen sizes from 320*240 pixels up to 2560*1600 pixels. Whether you will be shown the tablet or the phone interface depends on device characteristics. Rule of thumb:

Screen >= 1024*600 mdpi - tablet layout
Otherwise - phone interface

Some small tablets and xhdpi phones can use either the tablet or phone layout. In case this is supported on your hardware you will find an extra option at Setup / Global (Requires restarting the app to take effect).

* Lower resolution tablets (800*480 and 800*600, normal density / mdpi) also default to the tablet interface upon user request.

Note to the wannabe gangstaz out there:

Running and spreading pirated versions is putting nails into this project's coffin.
