User thefuze from Germany has turned us on to this truly great bit of programming he’s done for the Venom for the iPad utilizing MIDI Designer Pro:
BUT, once you see everything this app can do (including thefuze’s layout), I think you’ll see if definitely worth it. I’ve been using it for years and have written one myself for my aging and battle-fatigued Roland MC-505. Plus they have hundreds of user-contributed layouts for other synths; it’s incredible!
Another option for MIDI Designer Pro is this: Say you’ve got some analog hardware that doesn’t accept MIDI CC (the Behringer Model D, Neutron, Korg MS-20 Mini all spring to mind…)
What I’ve done with MIDI Designer Pro is created layouts for these synths simply so that when I create a new patch I like, I set the values on screen to match and then capture it with screenshots to save the patch. (Also works well with XOX style drum beats; or, I even hook it up to my computer and launch shortcuts via QuickKeys to either BBEdit, PhotoShop, or InDesign).
Regardless, if you have it loaded on your iDevice AND have a Venom, I strongly suggest you check it out. Thanks, thefuze!
