I use iOS apps almost exclusively at this point with my Seaboard Blocks and Lightpad Blocks. A Dashboard for iOS would really help.
Adding another vote for this feature. I keep landing on the fence regarding sending my Block M back... I have so much fun playing it, I just want to stop having to fight with the software to do it...
The block has this nice light interface, why can't we change settings on it directly? This just needs some thought on how the UI would work. Since we clearly write parameters to it from the desktop app, there's certainly something to change. Something like that would COMPLETELY change this device for me as my biggest struggle is inconsistent settings management across platforms.
Thanks for the feedback in this thread – it's much appreciated.
While Dashboard for iOS is not on the current roadmap, it is on our list of outstanding priorities. We'll be sure to update you with more details once we have further information to share.
Do you have an API for doing this? If so, we could write our own :)
Thanks for the advices
As much as I'd like a full ROLI Dashboard for iOS, the BIG thing I need to be able to do on mobile is switch between MPE and single channel MIDI.
Sometimes I want to use Noise with full 5D touch, but other sampling engines need the single channel MIDI (unless I can figure out a workaround).
I agree completely with the above. I use midi filtering on my iCM4+ interface to filter out the CC74 message and am a bit dissappointed it's such a hassle to switch from MPE to regular midi. I really like my Seaboard Block keyboard and would happily invest in a MkII if it had these features added.
I found this dashboard app by accident last night and have been trying it out. By god, it works! There is a good deal that you can do in the app. It’s not as feature rich as full dashboard on Mac, but the basics are covered and work well. Cheers!
Thanks to this forum I got the message about Tornieri´s 3rd Party-Dashboard.
First look at it yesterday: It seems to work (at last with my Blocks WLIN (M)). When I find the time I might write another commentary.
For the Pad Block to be able to switch thru different Block Modes (they go from 1 to 5 blocks grid) you first have to click on "Load Default Program". (Otherwise its in the mode you uploaded from PC/Mac and it wont switch Blocks via Tornieri´s App).
Of course you can not upload the Roli-Programs to the Blocks Pad as you can from PC-Dashboard, but there´s no need for them on IOS!
From first look:
Everything one needs! Midi Config, MPE/Multi/Single Channel switching, 5D Parameter Control, Performance-Control (Chords, Scale, Blocks, Glide) and more.
So: First look: Thanks a lot, it looks great!!
