MIJOY PRO is a VSTi MIDI plug-in that allows you to use a joystick or gamepad as a MIDI controller. It can be used to control other VSTi instruments, FX plug-ins and even MIDI hardware in real-time.

Nowadays synthesizers, samplers and effects offer an incredible range of possibilities. So much power and flexibility also means many parameters to be managed. Programming the automation by hand is a possible approach to this issue, but certainly more suitable for refining a track than for creating it from scratch.

MIJOY PRO is a premium application designed to let you control virtual instruments, hardware synthesizers, samplers and effects processors in a more friendly and effective way, as well as opening up new possibilities of approaching them. It can be used alone, but it's also a perfect complement to a masterkeyboard or other MIDI controllers. For instance, it can be configured for key-switching, as well as for controlling filters and other parameters.

MIJOY PRO 4 represents a step forward in the way joystick axis data is handled. This version introduces some key features that greatly improve the flexibility of the plug-in:
– eight slots assignable to every joystick axis of your choice between X, Y, Z, Slider1, Slider 2, X-rotation, Y-rotation, Z-rotation and their inversions.
– now the same axis can be assigned to more than one MIDI command at the same with independent MIDI settings (Ch, min/max, etc.).
– axis inversion.
– new axis display with four switchable pointers, one for each couple of axes.
– improved MIDI monitor.
– new navigation menu with buttons.
