Midi channel to control from a DAW ?

Hello, Beautiful sound for this synth. I understand there's no midi control in Eera, but what about playing Eera from a midi sequence from a DAW ? Also, what about automation of parameters and loading a preset thru a program change ? Is there a documentation online ? Thanks.

Hi, Sorry for the delay, I didn't see your message. Unfortunately, Eera doesn't support MIDI in any way. But which of iOS DAWs provide such a feature (the automation of external instruments)? I could expose parameters as MIDI controllers in the future release. As for the playing from a DAW—I'm looking for a way to control continuous pitch and envelope of Eera with traditional ("separate") ways. Currently it seems that it would not be possible in a usual piano roll without drawing additional automations. There is no additional documentation. All the features are described in the internal help system.

Thanks for your answers ! Modstep or Cubasis may provide automation for parameters(but there's others like Auria) while playing midi parts. I understand also that the continuous pitch it's complicated as there might be more than 1/2 tones between intervals. Maybe glide between intervals ? I also might consider Eera more as a live intrument... Anyway, thanks for your app, hope you'll produce more in the futur.

Thanks. I added the MIDI feature in the roadmap. Currently I can't say, when I'll release a new version. Eera is only few weeks old and there is another big project in development. But I think an update will be not later than the end of August.
