yMIDI is a MIDI control surface that enables you to control any DAW software or hardware that implements the RTP MIDI protocol. This includes any DAW software running under OSX or software on a PC which has the rtpMIDI network stack installed. If you need to install rtpMIDI, you can download it from from here. yMIDI runs on Windows 8.1 on x86 and ARM hardware.


The yMIDI interface consists of two pages: A primary page with Pitch, Mod Wheel, Volume sliders, five custom sliders, an X/Y control and a three octave keyboard

The second page is filled with a 4 by 4 grid of note triggers. These touch pads can be configured to any CC# and channel

Connecting yMIDI to DAW host

Bring up the yMIDI app bar by either swiping down from the top or right clicking in the application.

If your network has systems connected to it that support RTP MIDI then they will automatically show up in the Systems drop down list. Select the system you want to connect to and click the connect button

Manually connecting yMIDI to DAW host

If for some reason a system does not show up automatically in the system list you can configure a manual connection.
To setup a manual connection go to the Configure Manual Connection section, enter in a name and IP address for the system.

Click the save button and the system will now show up in the system list. Press the connect button to link to the system.

Configuring controllers

Click the controller configuration button on the top of the page. This will set any configurable control to Configuration mode. While in configuration mode a controller will be surrounded by a red border. Clicking or touching in a control in configuration mode will bring up the configuration interface for the control. After making the desired changes for the settings for the control, click or touch anywhere outside of the control to dismiss the configuration interface. Click the controller configuration button to take the controllers out of configuration mode.
