Unlock a comprehensive view of your configured macros with the Gesture Pad's Overview feature.

One Gesture, Multiple Commands: The Snapshot Revolution.

Imagine using a single, simple gesture—like a one-finger pan left/right—not just for a single action but for an array of commands depending on the active Snapshot. This means the same gesture could nudge your cursor by a frame, a bar, or a beat in one scenario, and adjust the volume or fade-in/out values of a clip in another. The key here is fluidity; you maintain a smooth workflow without needing to memorize a complex array of gestures.
Snapshot functionality allows for deep customization of your workflow. You can create different Snapshots tailored to specific phases of your project or tasks at hand. By simply switching between Snapshots, you adapt your Gesture Pad to the current focus of your work, whether it's editing, mixing, or composing, all without altering your physical interaction with the pad.


Elevate your MIDI control to new heights with the Gesture Pad, seamlessly integrated with MetaGrid Pro's MIDI Step action. This powerful combination allows for precise manipulation of MIDI Continuous Controller (CC) parameters directly through intuitive gestures. Swipe, pan, or tap to effortlessly increment or decrement MIDI CC values, tailoring your sound with granular precision. Customize your control further by specifying step values, such as +1/-1, or defining value sets like (0, 50, 100, 127), enabling quick adjustments across predefined steps. The Gesture Pad makes MIDI control more intuitive and responsive, ensuring your creative expression is unhindered.

Alongside its advanced MIDI control capabilities, the Gesture Pad introduces an innovative feature for displaying time code directly from the Mackie Control device configured in your DAW. Time codes are shown in a detailed bar/beats/subdivision format, making transport operations within your DAW not only more precise but also deeply engaging and contextually relevant. This addition ensures that every playback, pause, or recording action is informed by exact musical timing, enhancing your production process with unmatched accuracy and involvement.
