Katapult for iPad

A new free iPad controller turns up called Katapult. Here's the app's description:

Katapult is an extremely flexible grid-based MIDI controller solution. Take your performance or production to a new level with fully customizable multitouch control grids.

Katapult lets you map multipage layouts to any number of iPad's and route the output to any MIDI compatible software or hardware.

Katapult supports bi-directional communication, meaning that your software can update the controls on the iPad surface. For example, twist a knob in Traktor, and the corresponding control on the iPad updates instantly.

Want one controller to update another? Katapult lets you chain controllers together. Endless cross-updating fun!

Want your controlers to stand out? Katapult let's you customize the colors of any controller.

Mappable controller types include:
  • Hold buttons
  • Toggle buttons
  • Horizontal/vertical faders
  • Horizontal/vertical sliders
  • Indicator LEDs
  • 2D Pads
  • Meters
  • Progress bars
  • Note output
  • CC output
  • Drumracks
  • Keyboard macros

Haven't been able to establish a connection with the desktop Katapult app. And now the iPad app keeps crashing on me.

One suggestion to the developer, I shouldn't have to enter a computer name. Instead the app should automatically list the available computer names that user can select from.

Was excited to read it can work with various midi hardware and software - then when it doesn't work with the line6 midi interface and you have to have a computer running alongside kinda makes it pointless - Epic fail.
