Midi controller and FMOD


Im thinking about using FMOD for a live show, where I need to use the parameters and music system of FMOD. Is there any way to connect a standard midi controller/keyboard to FMOD?

Would be wonderful … also just for quickly testing parameter changes for a game system.


Hi Niels,

There isn’t a native way of connecting a MIDI keyboard with FMOD Studio. It is possible to use a control surface such as a Mackie Control to control faders and parameters, etc.

You would need to fetch the inputs from the MIDI device and program how FMOD should use those inputs in your live action setup. There’s some third party libraries available for working with MIDI that you can use.



Hi Richard,
Thanks a lot for the answer. I was hoping there was an easier way, but I will definitely look into the third party libraries.
