Version History

Update history:

  • May 2020: Get HYPED! Years of development has come into fruition and MIDIGrade 3 is finally here!!! It comes in four different flavors: MIDIGrade for macOS, MIDIGrade for Windows, MIDIGrade Lite for macOS and MIDIGrade Lite for Windows.
  • March 2020: I’m saddened to concede that MIDIGrade 2.0 is not and most likely will not become available on macOS Catalina. It works as intended if you are running macOS Mojave or High Sierra. As the developer of MIDIGrade though, I have decided it is time to move forward ... MIDIGrade 3 is in works full steam, and with new platform and new collaborators aboard, it will be better than ever! This time around Windows users are in for a treat, too. ;) Early access coming available in Q2 2020.
  • January 2020: Happy New Year 2020! Compatibility for MacBook Pro 16" added. Please note ControllerMate isn't working on Catalina yet and so upgrading your macOS to that isn't recommended. Catalina update for ControllerMate is in development.
  • May 2019: Resolve 16 Public Beta has been tested and appears to be working with the current MIDIGrade version without issues!
  • February 2019: MIDIGrade's Primaries Bars function has received a significant performance update and work more reliably now.

  • December 2018: Improved keyboard functionality and keyboard calibration. Added support for new ultra wide monitor.
  • July 2018: General bug fixes.
  • June 2018: Added compatibility for several different keyboard models.
  • May 2018: MIDIGrade version 2.0 is finally out! This major update has been in works for more than six months and brings huge performance improvements, cool new features and a brand new keyboard functionality with it. Now you don’t even need to have the controller anymore to use MIDIGrade! Learn more about this update here:

  • October 2016: The new macOS Sierra has major issues with ControllerMate at the moment. Starting from today I'm gradually rolling out MIDIGrade updates with temporary fix to each screen resolution.

  • September 2016: Improved compatibility with Resolve's newest 12.5.2 version. Support for 3840 x 1200 single monitor resolution has been added. Also various performance improvements.
  • August 2016: Honored to have MIDIGrade featured on No Film School, the resource for my filmmaking news and knowledge since 2014:
  • July 2016: MIDIGrade version 1.2 full release now available! It is fully compatible with DaVinci Resolve 12.5.

  • Feb 2016: MIDIGrade version 1.1 is now online! See the new features demonstrated here: Added support for 6400 x 3600 single screen resolution and 1920 x 1200 dual screen resolution.
  • Feb 2016: I am currently working on an update which brings not only Primaries Bars into MIDIGrade but also has huge performance improvements based on the feedback I got from early adopters! This and future updates are free for those who have already purchased MIDIGrade. ETA for this update is next week. A video will be posted alongside the update when it's ready.
  • Jan 2016: I have received requests for implementing Primaries Bars' Lift/Gamma/Gain/Offset controls for each channel Y/R/G/B. Adding this is totally plausible since there's still a 4th Bank unused and 6 side buttons in total so one of them can easily be programmed for getting into that Bank 4. I will add this feature in an update which will be ready later in February 2016!
