MIDI Keyboard Macros can also work with MIDI rotation and slider controls using its powerful Scripting Language. You can for example use just a single MIDI slider to cycle between tools in Photoshop, change brush transparency or create a multiple text clipboard and select which clipboard to use with a knob.Pads and keys can also transmit velocity so you may create macro where pressing a pad will trigger one action (for example moving to next word in text processor) but hitting it harder will trigger a different action (for example selecting the next word)

MIDI Keyboard Macros is a sister application to our Multi-Keyboard Macros.Instead of using computer keyboards, it allows you to use various MIDI devices to act as a Macro triggers.You can now use your MIDI pads, keyboards or controllers to create short-keys and macros for graphics apps, video editing, 3D software, text editors … yes even music apps in a way that it wasn’t possible before.
Turn your MIDI pads, keyboards or controllers into the most sophisticated Macro triggers, app launchers, clipboard processor and more
Fire a simple shortcut such as CTRL+C with a single pad/key.
An infinite combination of Shortcuts, Keys, Text typing, Pauses…You can even add a Mouse click for apps that have only buttons.

Yes to Multiple MIDI devices
Version 2.10 (06/05/2020)- ability to move sliders on screen using script (see chapter in manual 3.12 Slider Function)- added implicit array initialization in script- toolbar in script windowVersion 2.05 (01/05/2020)- addition of KEY_OFF macro block for triggering key release (see manual chapter 3.26 Note OFF)Version 2.04 (24/04/2020)- Script fix. Somehow SendKeyStroke command omitted Escape key. Both ESC and ESCAPE now works, example: SendKeyStroke(“ESC”)Version 2.03- Support for High DPI devices such as Microsoft SurfaceVersion 2.02- Added SendMIDI message to script- added NOTE OFF triggerVersion 2.0 (10/03/2020)- First public version. Starts from version 2, in order to be in sync with Multi-Keyboard Macros.
Macros are assigned to the device for which they were defined. This allows you to add multiple MIDI devices that can do their own separate
things. For example pressing note A2 on one MIDI device can trigger a different macro than pressing the same key on a second MIDI device.
The only limitation is that these device should be different models (or even just versions) in order for the application to clearly recognize them as
separate devices because.
No need to take your eyes from the screen! Find the correct macro easily by lightly touching your finger across the velocity sensitive pads - it will display the Macro Name on the screen without triggering the Macro.
Setup and Basic Operation
You can directly set pad colors from the interface for the “matrix” launch type devices such as APC mini. Furthermore you can control the lights from the script as well for some customized functionality.
Control On-Screen Elements
Control application sliders with MIDI slider or knob on your controller. Even if your application doesn’t have shortcuts for all the functions, you can now click on buttons or move its sliders from within the script.
