AU Midi Generator List

The following list gathers AU plugins that generate midi, there are several general types of midi generating plugins:

  • Keyboards or controller surfaces, mostly MPE but they can be put in non-mpe mode (KB-1, Velocity Keyboard)
  • Midi modifiers like Autony, Cality, Midi Echo, Mozaic, StreamByter
  • Pattern / Sequence generators (Rozeta, Atom, StepBud, Fugue, Photon)
  • Instruments that also output midi (if MPE they need to support non-mpe modes) (Pure Acid, Ruismaker Noir, Hammerhead, Geoshred, iFretless Bass)
  • Audio to midi generation like FAC Envolver

The column Output Channel lists the plugins ability to specify the midi output channel and the column State Save shows if the midi output channel is correctly recalled(*). Both features are essential for multi midi input processing plugin routing.
(*) Several plugins had problems saving their channel setting when this list was created

Table Legend

  • Plugins with bold name still have problems regarding midi output channel
  • Output Channel: ✔ ok , :?: no support yet , :!: problems , ➖ not available
  • State Save: ✔ ok , :!: problems , ➖ not available
  • Message Icons: 👾 BR bug report, ⛳️ FR feature request

Please add midi generating plugins that are not yet in the list, or update their state if they got an update and the problem is fixed.

Setup a session containing the test candidate, search for the output channel config, change channel to something other than its default and save the session. On session reload, open up the output settings and if it shows the previously set number, everything is fine.

For MPE generating plugins you first need to find out, if you can set it up in single channel poly or mono mode and then select the output channel.
