Dave Smith Tetra - TB MIDI Stuff (iOS)Template

Xtetr TB-LT, free - for Tetra (Dave Smith Instruments)

Tetra is a small and portable analog synthesizer by Dave Smith Instruments (Sequential) with an outstanding sound and a large range of functions. Unfortunately, only a fraction of functions are controllable directly. Our freen‘Xtetr TB-LT'’ template is here to help by making functions directly available. During the making of the template, special attention was given to straight-forward and intuitive operation. To use the template, you will need an Apple iPad and the affordable (but comprehensive) app “TB MIDI Stuff”, which you can find in the app store.


Some of the controllable functions include:

  • 2 pages (Main and Modulation)
  • Layer A und Layer B editable (activate "Edit B" for Layer B at the Tetra)
  • Multimode on/off (only voice 1, channel 1)
  • Normal, Stack, Split Point
  • Program and Bank Select
  • Oscillator 1 & 2 (incl. Wave Reset, Noise, Sync, Glide, etc.)
  • LFO 1-4 (incl. Sync, Frequency, Amount, Shape, Destination, etc.)
  • Mod 1-4 (incl. Source, Amount, Destination)
  • 3 envelopes (Amp, Filter & Envelope 3)
  • LP Filter (incl. Env. Amount, Audio Mod, 2/4 Pole, Velocity, etc.)
  • Arpeggiator (incl. Hold, Length, Steps, Octave)
  • Mini keyboard (all oktaves)
  • and many more...
