Welcome to the forum Jim!

I think you are looking for the DM Touch App. Unfortunately because Alesis no longer supports the DMDock I don't know of any place that you can download the App. This is the problem with Apple store dependent Apps for old products. Once the company stops supporting them, the app goes away as well.  :-[

Thank you very much for the response!!!Can I use something else on the ipad some app to take place on the DMTOUCH app? Any advice?
Also can I use it as a trigger Io with VST on my PC? I have also dm10 as my main setup module.

I have no idea. I've never owned a DMdock. I don't think many were sold. That would explain why there really isn't much out there on it.

Howdy, Dimitris-
I am neckdeep in a Frankensteinian DM Dock edrum project right now. The project overview, with photos ?my first attempt to post yesterday failed? should be posted over on the Lobby/Sight & Sound subforum shortly; however, regarding usability,

the short answer is absolutely yes, there are a few usable apps for iOS/iPadOS, but they are hit and miss...pun intended. I installed and uninstalled several freebies straightaway. I kept a few I have not tried yet, e.g. Barbax and Korg Gadget, but have not tried them out.

I briefly tested, then immediately bought Digistix2. It worked immediately in basic function, and saved for later while I test it, this weekend, with a few serious Windows 10 libraries and hosts.

EDIT: My apologies, Jim!
BFD Free worked straightaway. Testing continues.

When somebody tells you that something cannot be done, listen to them. Then, do it anyway.

It has been brought to my attention that the FREE DM DOCK app requires App./iTunes Store Personal Info and Apple ID of the Original down loader.
A User obtained one of my personal email accounts in this app and contacted me through my personal email..requesting the additional info outside this Forum.

The POST and all Links info etc references etc to the install have been DELETED....the User Blocked.
I posted I would not be available for assistance and I meant it...that especially includes giving out Personal Info.

The DM DOCK is a DEAD product.

For Future Reference for Anyone looking at purchasing a DM Dock ....

Do Not Purchase a DM DOCK unless an iPad with the DM Touch app installed... is included.

"Apps and other digital content are non-transferable between Apple IDs."

Yep. He is right. I am retired, and had the time and inclination to extensively tinker with the damned thing, having done a similar route a decade ago with an IODock.

I managed to get mine to work satisfactorily with only one app, Dstix2, of two dozen tested (others communicated okay, but sucked)... and it was a faff of hassles.

However, as a hobbyist-basic midi trigger box, software options (careful here....candystore buffet of crap hiding a few gems) of free x64/x86 stuff in the DAW ecosystem, it was worth the $50 I paid, but.... Caveat emptor.
