“Touchpad 2 Midi is a free VST plugin for Windows that allows you to use the touchpad on your laptop as a midi controller.

The touchpad can be configured as:

  • An XY pad
  • 4 sliders
  • 4 Buttons

At the moment only Synaptics touchpads are supported – we are working on adding support for USB touchpads as well, but have not yet heard from Cirque / Adesso regarding how to read raw data from their touchpads. Some laptops use Alps touchpads these are unfortunately not supported either – Apls have been contacted.” Click IMAGE to follow Download Link.
