Blokas Midihub 1.15 Update: Practical MIDI Workflow Enhancements

Press release follows:

Lithuanian music technology company Blokas has recently released a significant update for their standalone MIDI router and processor, the Midihub.

At the heart of Midihub lies the concept of "pipes", sort of MIDI effects. These pipes can be seamlessly utilized using Midihub’s dedicated software editor, which boasts a versatile drag-and-drop interface for input/output configurations.

Version 1.15 introduces a suite of pipe enhancements and new features aimed at refining the MIDI processing experience. This update focuses on practical improvements that expand the device's utility and ease of use for producers and live performers, with each new feature aimed at solving common MIDI challenges.

Key Features of the Midihub 1.15 Update

Enhanced MIDI Mapping Capabilities

In this update, users gain the capability to control pipe parameters using MIDI messages generated within the Midihub itself, eliminating the necessity for physical loopbacks. This opens up a realm of intriguing possibilities for internal modifiers and self-modulation techniques. Moreover, the update allows for more detailed and precise manual MIDI mapping, enhancing control and customization.

Revamped Clock Pipe

The clock pipe, essential for tempo management, has been improved to offer more flexibility in its placement within the signal chain. New features like mappable tap-tempo and tempo nudge buttons have been added to simplify syncing with external equipment.

Precision Modulation with 14-bit LFO

A 14-bit LFO mode has been introduced, allowing for finer MIDI modulation depth and control. The addition of a Sample & Hold waveform for LFOs enables more complex and textured sound design possibilities.

New Dispatcher and Arpeggiator Algorithms

The update brings 7 fresh algorithms to the Dispatcher and Arpeggiator pipes, including "Entirely Up Then Down" and "Entirely Down Then Up" patterns. These additions provide users with more creative options for note sequencing and pattern generation.

By valuing community feedback and prioritizing the practical aspects of music creation, with the 1.15 update, Blokas ensures the Midihub remains an integral part of the creative process, simplifying MIDI workflows and sparking new creative possibilities.
