CMI App for iPad and iPhone

Developed in Australia during the ’70s and ’80s, the Fairlight CMI (Computer Musical Instrument) was the first commercial sampler and screen-based rhythm sequencer. Today every sampler, digital synthesizer, sequencer and audio workstation can trace its lineage back to this legendary machine. Now you can have, in your pocket or on your iPad, a piece of history developed by Fairlight staff who worked on the CMI in the ’80s.

You can Buy and download the Pro App from the App Store, or if you are not sure you want the Pro features, you can get the Player App and play original Fairlight CMI sounds and sequences straight away. Then if you want to create your own masterpieces you can use the in-app upgrade process to get all the Pro features listed in the Features page.

You can find an audio montage of CMI App sounds, made by a Fairlight customer, on SoundCloud.

Accepts input from Core MIDI devices. You can even accept MIDI from some devices that don’t support Core MIDI, such as the Akai SynthStation and the Line6 MidiMobilizer, using an app called MidiBridge.
A great way to get quality audio into the new sampling feature in version 1.1 is via iRig Mic, and the perfect support for your iPad is iKlip.

    I miss à way to mute different “tracks” or “solo” in Page R. This are handy when record to Daw. Also miss the click track…

  2. The Mac & PC has been begging for a VSTi/AU/RTAS plugin version of the fairlight for years and years, and ive got to say i would use it all the time if there was such a product. Waldorf tried with the PPG wave, but its a pretty dreadful recreation in all honesty, and i believe the current cpus are still not powerful enough to do an emulation of what the synclavier can do.

    Anyway, i think it would be an extremely cash rich product if you decided to do it..



  3. Mike Hogan says:

    I’ve only just started working with Page R. Awesome. Did the original have a click for realtime input or is it best to set one up first and then redo that part later once other parts are in? Also, is it (or will it be) possible to change the time signature from 4/4?

    • Thomas says:

      Yes, the original CMI had a click track that could be turned on and off with a keyboard command. That was one of the features left out of the App because it has no keyboard.
      The current App is fixed in 4/4 time, but you can do a certain amount of 3/4 or 6/8 by using the triplet timing. Since you are the only customer who has asked for other time signatures, it is not at the top of our feature list.

  4. Jonathan Hendry says:

    Did the ‘real’ Fairlight have a way to assign different voices to different parts of the keyboard?

    If so, that would be handy.

  5. Mike says:


    How about a VSTi version of this app for Wintel boxes (and I guess Macs too)?

    Not every muso owns an iDevice…

    I originally purchased the Standard version and then upgraded to the Pro version through the in app purchase.

    When ‘buying’ this app on my other iOS devices, in order to assure that I do not get charged twice, should I purchase the Standard version and upgrade inside the app or can I ‘buy’ the Pro version and not be charged?

    Also, when backing up to iTunes is the Pro upgrade also backed up? If I was to restore from backup will I have to redownload the Pro upgrade?


    • Thomas says:

      There is a $40 pro upgrade in the $10 app. This app will work on all your devices and will not be lost if you restore iTunes. See the FAQ for more details.

  9. rachel says:

    Thanks for pointing me to the FAQ.
    I should’ve done that previously, but wasn’t paying attention!

  10. rachel says:

    Hi, I just noticed the appstore has a Pro version for sale, as opposed to the Player version. Originally, I bought Player then did an IAP to upgrade to Pro. But the icon on the app still says Player! Which version is correct? I presume I have Pro, because all the content is unlocked. When we receive an update, could this please include the correct icon for the version? Otherwise I have no complaints!

  12. Jonathan Hendry says:

    If you don’t already, it might be interesting to support mirroring the display to an external monitor, especially when using an external controller. You’d still have to tap the iOS device’s screen to interact, but could view the UI on a big screen.

    • Thomas says:

      Jonathan, that’s already done on the iPad 1. Plug in an external screen and a “TV” button appears on the music keyboard. That shows the top part of the screen on the TV. It works best in portrait mode.
      Of course the iPad 2 has video mirroring of the whole screen built in.

      • Jonathan Hendry says:


        • Jonathan Hendry says:

          Hm. So I tried it out. It seems like it’d be rather difficult to interact with the app, when the top part of the screen is moved to the TV. At least, on my iPad 1, the area above the keyboard is blank. So it’s hard to know where to tap, or even if it’d respond.

          It would be useful if the upper part of the screen were still drawn on the iPad also. At a minimum, perhaps a wireframe of the screen widgets, so you at least have an idea where to tap, even if dynamic content isn’t drawn.

          Still loving the app. I really need to learn how to play, though. ;^)

          • Thomas says:

            Unfortunately, on the iPad 1, there is no video mirroring. To have the external video as well as an on-screen user interface requires twice as much CPU and memory and a whole pile more programming. The video out on the iPad 1 was only intended as a demo feature, not as a tool. With such a small number of potential users, and with the iPad 2 making it unnecessary, it’s not high on our list. Sorry about that.

  13. James says:

    You can add me to the list of users who want the option to slide the keyboard off the page when using an external controller. I don’t have a preference what you put in its place, anything would be better than the stark white and black against the muted retro color scheme.

  14. Mike Hogan says:

    The keyboard should be scaled down in size to take up a little less of the screen and allow more range (it sure seems to eat up Page R real estate). Maybe the sliders and lighted buttons could be added to the left side to give even more nostalgia appeal with typical functions like vibrato, pitch, etc. Not sure what functionality the numeric keypad on the right side would add, but I’m sure you could come up with something… performance control?? both could be pop-up style so they could be hidden or preference toggled.

    Being able to reverse a sample is at the top of my list, as would be some basic effects (even though I realize this was not part of the original unit). Some other virtual classics have simple delay and modulation and it doesn’t detract from the nostalgia aspect.

    Loving the update to the basic app btw!

    • Thomas says:

      Mike, I’ll add your vote for updating the keyboard and for Page 6, which is where you would be able to reverse a waveform. We’ll keep in mind your ideas for controls.

  15. Jonathan Hendry says:

    What are the licensing terms, if any, on compositions made with the app?

    ie, if I write and sell a computer game, could I use the iPad app to compose music for it?

  16. Alex Forth says:

    I’d like to see additional Series III sound packs made available for the app. I do get why you may not want to set up competition with your more premium 30A product from a $49 app, but wanted to put it out there.

    Also had some general feedback on the SIII sounds included. They were a bit hit and miss for me. Humans and Strings were good – would always love more, but it contained a generous helping. Analog and Brass were lighter than I hoped for or had less useful sounds (i.e. “prophecy” patches). Drums seemed quite under represented – 2 kicks, 2 snares, a 1 set of hats. Not going to complain too much on account of the price. But I can spend 30 mins just flicking through the sounds and remembering the records that used them.

    I was just starting to wonder what I’d pay for a full SIII sound set addon. $200? yep, sold. $500 – ouch, would sting a little. Might put that on the CC my wife doesn’t normally see the bill for. $1k+ – would be skinned alive!
    Well, obviously my name isn’t on the 30A wait list…

    Anyway, love the app. It was the easiest no-brainer app store purchase I ever made.

  17. rachel says:

    Thanks for replying. I just bought the full version tonight and having fun with Page R and the instruments.

    As for the screen display when the keyboard is hidden, why not just scale the display to full screen for all the pages and then have a more elegant keyboard, that just pops up or slides out, when you need it.
    Thanks again for making my ipad into a (virtual) fairlight!

    • Thomas says:

      Rachel, it doesn’t look very good when you stretch it to fit the full screen. But we have ideas for how to use that space productively, and also plans for music keyboard improvement.

  18. rac hel says:

    very happy with the Fairlight App. A dream come true for me. The only thing I would change would be the keyboard, which should really be hidden if not wanted. The extra space could be used for voice/bank buttons or the main menu, or even just expand the whole screen to make the virtual screen use the whole ipad.

    Thanks for a great instrument!

    • Thomas says:

      Agreed. It’s certainly on the list for a later release.
      But to help us focus on what you all want, could you please ALL chime in with what you would like to see in the bottom area, for when each of Page 1, Page R, Page 2, Page 3, and the voice display page are displayed at the top?

  19. Kelpie says:

    The upgrade was well worth the money and really rocks on the Ipad, but My Iphone version is still saying I need to upgrade…is this correct? Do I have to buy to another upgrade to have it running in pro mode on my I-phone?

  22. Kelpie says:

    This was truly worth waiting for,
    I thank you for the work you must have put in to making this beast.
    I cant believe that there are people on this forum nit picking over tiny things that they percieve to be wrong with it.

  23. Patrick says:

    I really like the Fairlight app, actually its a dream come true. I use the Iphone 3GS and 2 hours ago I upgraded to Pro edition. But why is it still showing a disk with its center spinning? I have full wifi contact. How long will it take to load the pro edition?
    Looking forward to your answer and future updates!

    • Thomas says:

      Patrick, it looks like it is stuck. Just quit and relaunch the App. Tap the home button, then double tap the home button, then tap and hold the Fairlight icon in the bottom row until the red (-) appears and tap that to quit it. Then relaunch and all should be well. If that doesn’t work, delete the App from your device and reinstall from iTunes.

  24. Tboz says:

    “But the current design has a jitter on the start of each note of up to +/1 12 ms, giving a possible note-to-note jitter of up to +/1 24 ms”

    Oh, that’s pretty bad actually (if you mean + / – 12 ms). What’s that – 10% start jitter on a 16th note at 120 BPM? So the notes are triggered one by one instead of rendered to a stream I guess. Well, I think I will use it as a live instrument and await your CPU fix until I start using Page R.

  25. Peter Binskin says:

    I recently discovered that, although the Fairlight II sounds have been available in different formats for some time, the experience of the multiple fans, 8 inch drives and the lack of space in my room have never been repeated by a plug in. Mostly because they seek to take out the imperfections when it was mostly the imperfections that created the instrument’s character.
    Having owned a II (I bought it when Albert Studios was upgrading in the mid to late 80s) I found this app to be like visiting an old friend. When I opened it up and there was Locust I began to cry (truly!). I remember washing it in reverb and cranking it up. I still think that sequence was the reason I managed to get a good resale price when it was my turn to sell. I still have two of the 8inch floppy discs with sounds I sampled myself or created with the wave drawing so that my elementary classes can see how things have changed.
    So thanks for bringing back the character of what I’ve been missing for all these years without the boxes of floppies. If you ever want to turn it into a VST/AU plugin that would be great too.
    PS. Is there any way I can get the sounds on my 2 floppies ported in (if they still work)?
    Thanks again

  26. Mike says:


    I find the standard version disappointing due to the inability to loop sounds; I feel this makes the pro version a necessity. However, I’m honestly troubled by the horrible reviews found at the app store.

    • Thomas says:

      You probably weren’t as disappointed as we were, on both counts. The loop editor was supposed to be available in the basic non-Pro version, but somehow being unavailable slipped through quality control. We’ve submitted 1.0.1, with that issue fixed, along with a few other things (see below). So in a few days, the $10 app will be able to edit loops. The same applies to editing the default instrument. Those changes will make a major difference to the $10 App.

      I think the main problem with the bad reviews is that there are a lot of people who think anything over $2 is a ripoff, no matter what the App does. Also many people don’t understand how historically important it is, and find the nostalgia annoying.

      But the big problem was one we didn’t anticipate, and it was fuelled by a small mistake on our part in the in-app feature list (MIDI really IS available in the $10 version). The problem was that although we clearly spelled out in the iTunes App description what the $10 version and $40 upgrade did, many people didn’t read the description, and thought they were getting a complete Fairlight CMI for $10. I can understand their feeling ripped off, but I can’t understand why they didn’t read the description.

      What’s New in 1.0.1:


      – Player App without Pro upgrade can now:
      – edit loop settings of Fairlight voices
      – edit the default instrument
      – Improvement in Page R note drawing speed
      – Some minor improvements to MIDI status display
      – New option to disable sleeping
      – Extra, more obvious, “All voices” button on Page 2
      – “Player” added to the icon
      – (Pro only) Able to export personal voices as .VCX (CMI extended) voice files
      – (Pro only) Able to import .VC and .VCX CMI voice files


      – MIDI pitch bend fixed in instrument page and Page R
      – In-app feature matrix MIDI fixed
      – iPad occasional green-dot-on-black-screen fixed
      – corrections to some voice info
      – Fix playback stopping mid-note when using Page R onscreen keyboard

      • Mike says:

        Thanks for your reply. I have to admit that, although I was disappointed about the looping, I found the sound quality to be amazing for an iPad app. And I think it’s true that we’re not used to spending $50 for an app. Also, I think it’s ridiculous for people to think they’re going to get a $25,000 instrument for $50. I think that I will get the pro version as, rather than being a real Fairlight, I think this would make a great portable music sketchpad.

    “… voice playback pitch is set by adjusting the sample playback rate, which is exactly how it was done in the CMI.”


  29. Tboz says:


    Thanks for this app! Since it (compared to other music apps on the iOS platform) is quite expensive and featurelacking I guess that most of the people that buys it are enthusisast and nostalgic persons, like myself 🙂 Therefore it would be really interesting if you could add more of the “i”-buttons on the voices – so we can know more about their history, famous songs that used it, artists that provided them to the library etc.

    It would also be nice with a “Live Performance Mode”, where no disk sounds are heard, sound selection is simple, split points is possible and preferrably a touch of reverb could be applied.

    Finally a question: Since the app is both iPad/iPhone, will I get the pro upgrade on the iPhone if I buy it on the iPad? Don’t want to shell out an extra $40 to find out 🙂

    • Thomas says:

      I think we need a collaborative effort on the (i) buttons. Could anybody who has information about where these voices are used, please let us know? Especially if you have web links.

      The live performance mode has been suggested by a number of customers. You vote has been added.

      Yes, one upgrade, all devices. See the FAQ page.

      BTW, when you get to play with the Pro version, you might change your mind about it being feature-lacking.

      • Tboz says:

        Thanks for the response! I will get back when I tried the Pro model 🙂

        My current favourites are from Moments In Love with Art of Noise:
        * SARARR
        * ACCBASS1
        * Probably a lot more…

        I know that certain sounds were supplied by actual users. I guess TREVHORN (from Yes/Owner of a lonely heart) is supplied by Trevor Horn? And BIKODRUM by Peter Gabriel?

        Then another question. I didn’t find it in the FAQ or help pages: Is the lowpassfilter as well as the sampleplaying-engine (pitch interpolation etc) of the CMI modeled into the app, or does it just play the raw waveforms using the normal iOS APIs?

        • Hi Tboz,

          One of my jobs here at Fairlight is to assemble as much history on the sounds, their origin and use as I possibly can. I’ve already started assembling information and would welcome any contributions from yourself or any other Fairlight fan.

          I am also talking with some of the creators of the original library to get their input.

          We hope to have this information available to you in the near future.

          Email any info you might have to



        • Thomas says:

          The original CMI had a hardware low-pass tracking filter. Sadly, the iPhone does not have the processing power to do this in software, so the sounds generated by the App will not be precisely the same as from a CMI. However, in the App the voice playback pitch is set by adjusting the sample playback rate, which is exactly how it was done in the CMI.

          • Tboz says:

            Well, but I don’t see how this can really be comparable? The CMI did (as far as I understand) change the hardware output sample rate in order to play back samples at different pitches, and also applied a lowpass tracking filter. The iOS devices have a fixed output hardware sample rate, so when playing back the samples they must be software-wise recalculated to a different rate using one of the built-in kAudioConverterSampleRateConverterComplexity options (like linear interpolation etc). Just standard stuff… Or have you created some kind of modelled CMI-sample rate converter?

          • Thomas says:

            Tboz, you are right. There’s no way we could recreate the 8 channel cards full of electronics in an iPhone. You’ll have to wait for the 30A for that.
            In the Fairlight App, the voices are played back at variable rate, but then, as you suspected, they are software-sample-rate-converted at the mixer, using Core Audio, to match the hardware sample rate. No, the App does not have a low-pass filter. It already uses so much CPU that the slower devices just can’t keep up. However, the convolution used in the sample rate conversion goes a small way to achieving the same result.
            Perhaps in a later version we’ll add some otions so that those with more powerful devices can choose things like a low-pass filter.

          • Tboz says:

            Yes, that is unfortunately always a problem when dealing with multiple revisions of hardware – the low performing devices dictates the features of the high performing ones. Unless there are preference options for enabling/disabling features of course. Looking forward to that.

            Speaking of performance, I find it pretty strange that the Page R on my iPhone 4 can’t keep up playing with steady timing. It’s enough to just lay out one measure of 16ths to hear it. Not “tight” at all, unfortunately… Something you are aware of?

            BTW, I really appreciate that you are taking the time to answer the questions here. Since we are enthusiasts, we care about this stuff 🙂

          • Thomas says:

            I’ll have to end this thread here because it doesn’t fit on the page! But the current design has a jitter on the start of each note of up to +/- 12 ms, giving a possible note-to-note jitter of up to +/- 24 ms, which I assume is what you hear. We are working on a tradeoff where you can spend more CPU to get lower jitter.

  30. Joakim says:

    Thanks for this truly excellent initiative 🙂

    I suppose a plug-in version with iPad controller UI would kill some of the emotions.

    However, I am curios to find out if there is any song / instrument libraries to share out there?

    New or old, doesnt matter.
    Keep it up – best thing released in a long time 🙂

    / J

    • Thomas says:

      Thanks for the support. Yes, all kinds of plugin options are possible. We’ll see how this App goes first.

      We’re also curious if there are any songs and instruments out there to be shared. The Fairlight app will read original CMI II and IIX .VC, .RS and .IN files. The only problem is getting them off the 8″ floppy disks! But since the App can both send and receive these files, to those who have such files: spread the joy!

      We are also considering having a song/instrument/voice exchange on this web site, so if you want to post your own, please let us know.

  31. Hi ,
    Having great fun with the pro app on Ipad . Looking forward to using it with the band ( Kate Bush tribute ) when I get the hardware midi side of things sorted.
    The Alesis studio dock looks perfect for this when it becomes available.
    For live use a simplified interface would be ideal – dont need all the fancy graphics and pretend Fairlight interface ( nice as it is ) – ~What I need is a screen with a small number of huge buttons to just pick the appropriate voice and go !

  32. cerbere says:


    I just bought the basic and Pro app this w-e… Great !!!! How do I get the extra library ? Build it myself ?
    Also It is Steward not Stuart the drummer of police as IIX User
    Congrats for the app !!! it rocks !!!


    • Thomas says:

      Cerbere, not sure what you mean by how you get the extra library– the “All Voices” button on the top right of Page 2 gives you access to all the voices you have bought. When you upgraded to the Pro version, the CMI III floppy disks would have appeared at the bottom of the list.

  33. says:

    Question: most of the sounds which are meant to be played sustained are not looped. Why that? Where all the sounds of the original CMI II library not looped or were the sounds not “correctly” or “completely” transferred into the App (missing loop points and other sound parameters)?

    • Thomas says:

      The loop values in the Fairlight App, including the loop on/off switch, are exactly as read from the genuine CMI IIX floppy disks.
      Although the exact reasoning for each voice is lost in the mists of time, I believe that most voices have loop turned off because they sound awful when looped. The trouble with using sampled voices instead of synthesised voices is that there is no neat loop point that will work without a click or a bang.

      • says:

        But: the sounds I am referring to are well known from many songs where they were played sustained (looped) regardless of the “quality” of the loops (with sometimes noticable clicks), and in IMHO this imperfect loops are part of the character of the original instrument. Therefore I see no reason to switch the loops off, if the original sounds were (imperfectly) looped – and they are not usable, if they are not playable as intended: sustained/looped.

        • Thomas says:

          The owners of the original Fairlight CMI could edit the loop settings of all the voices that came with their CMI. You can do the same with the Pro upgrade of the Fairlight App. The basic App lets you look but not touch, while the Pro upgrade lets you edit and compose. But as Peter says, we will give this some thought.

        • Thomas says:

          With version 1.0.1, now released, you can edit the loop settings of any voice without the Pro upgrade.

  35. New Customer says:

    I think it is great you got this app out! I do have one complaint though. You should have sold it for one price and not had an upgrade option. It almost feels like a bait and switch scam. The non pro version is pretty useless.

    • Thomas says:

      Hi New Customer. I’m sorry you feel the non-Pro version is useless. But have a closer look: you get an 8-channel synthesiser, with over 500 genuine Fairlight CMI voices, that you can control via one or more external MIDI keyboards. You can use this for live performances or for recording. And all that for only $9.99. Personally, I think that’s a pretty sweet deal.

  36. What a cool App !

    Is there anyone who can get MIDI ( OS X ) over Wifi to work? Or is it not implemented yet?

    • Thomas says:

      Yes, MIDI-in from WiFi is implemented in the basic version. Have a look at the MIDI in/out help page for details. You will need to use Audio MIDI Setup to route your keyboard to the Fairlight App.

    Again I would like to take a moment and extend a huge THANK YOU to the entire Fairlight team. Not only did you create an instrument that changed the world of music and how artists would create it, but you have also shown us how compassionate you are to our obsession with the great white whale. You have taken the time and patience to create an affordable solution for the masses. Not a cheap one trick pony but a truly powerful addition to the Fairlight line. You have shared your opus with all of us. You have given us a gift. I am truly excited to see what users will do with this App to change the future of music once again. Sincerely, thank you.

  49. The CMI and PAGE R are back!!!

    This Fairlight app is amazing! It’s the real deal – all the official factory sounds of a CMI IIx, with the option for the best of Series III sounds! It has some neat “easter eggs” and a TON of useful features. Even just starting up the app is cool – check it out.

    This app is also very intuitive and easy to use, but still includes well-written and extensive help pages.

    I can’t wait to try it out on the iPad 2.

    In the 80’s there were a few hundred Fairlights built.
    Today, 30 years later, they have ported the Fairlight to the iOS for everyone to use.
    While to some it’s a neat toy, you can use it as a scratchpad with all the sounds from the IIx, as well as the Series III.
    While it’s not a complete Fairlight, they captured the essence of the Fairlight. The sound as well as “Page R”.
    In one way they actually made it better than the original…. You can bring it with you wherever you go.

    This App is a keeper ! !
