touchAble App for iPad and Ableton Live gets major update
The touchAble controller app for Ableton Live was updated to v1.3, providing more than 30 new features.
The app has been gaining a lot of attention since its release in september 2010 – giving Ableton Live Users an alternative to tedious MIDI Mapping and controller stacking. We have constantly improved touchAble with free updates that introduced new features and controls – and 1.3 is no different.
TouchAble 1.3 contains over 30 new features and changes, such as a loop and beatjump section, enabling anything from CDJ style mixes to creative loop manipulation, a completely rebuilt mixer that allows users to modularly choose the controls they need – complemented by the long awaited crossfader.
3 new native templates have been added: Auto Filter, Ping Pong Delay & the very first Instrument – Impulse – and are waiting to be tweaked. The new Settings Menu not only offers a cascade of new control-options – but also simplifies the connection process by adding Bonjour support.
Combined with its strong integration in Live, its six different modules (Clip grid, Mixer, Devices, Keys, Pads, XY Pad) and two command menus (Clip & Transport) touchAble 1.3 covers nearly every control element of Live’s session view.
touchAble for iPad is available to purchase for $24.99 USD.
