A HUGE Update For KeyStage And It’s On Offer

KeyStage by Ali Gokturk has received a huge update and is currently on offer for a limited time. There’s 30% off, now $14.99, (usually $19.99). The offer includes the in-app purchases too.

KeyStage is a master controller, AUv3 host, and audio mixer app designed mainly for keyboard players. With KeyStage, you can simultaneously control any number of hardware and software instruments using any number of MIDI controllers in an organized way.

Each project consists of sections (which corresponds to sections of a song). In each section you can change sounds and sound parameters of connected instruments, create complex splits and layers of your keyboard(s), change the functionalities of sliders/knobs/pedals of your MIDI controllers by creating advanced MIDI mappings, view PDF and JPG files (e.g. sheet music) and lyrics, and much more.

Try the FREE Litre version (link below).
