Composer Tools Pro Utility Controls

Composer Tools Pro comes with several additional useful tools for composers such as a MIDI Event Generator and MIDI Harp.

Utility Buttons

A grid of 168 buttons to control DAW key commands and macros. Each button can send up to 5 custom MIDI messages to build up complex macros.

To open the Utility Button window, tap the Util button at the bottom-right of the project window. By default, the window disappears when you release the button, but you can set it to latch by double-tapping.

For more information about your DAW’s ability to use MIDI to trigger key commands, consult the product guide. There are also MIDI compatible third-party tools such as Keyboard Maestro for macOS.
