Mapping—The mapping component allows users
to map a given range of MIDI messages to any
other range of MIDI messages. MIDI Shape Shifter
also has some of its own message types that can
be used in mappings. For example, a user could
map a CC message to a “Generator Toggle” message
which would cause a generator in the application
to be toggled on or off when the CC message is
Generating—This component is essentially
used to create highly customizable LFOs. These
LFOs can be synced to the tempo of the host or
set to repeat at a constant frequency. The shape
of each LFO is then specified in the
Transforming—Each mapping and each generator
will have a transformation associated with it.
Transformations determine how messages will be
modified. For example a transformation could
apply a velocity curve to a mapping of note on
messages. Transformations can either be manually
input or created from one of the presets.
The MIDI Shape Shifter for Windows (VST)
is available to download at no cost.
