Conductr - Ableton Live and Traktor controller for iPad

By Patchworks

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


"I’ve found the Traktor controller module to be a delight. Easy to set up, stable and completely instinctive to use".
MIRA CALIX (Warp Records)

"Conductr has quickly become an integral part of my studio experience. It provides me with great control over my workflow in both digital and analog domains while experimenting and recording within Ableton Live.”.
JUSTIN JAMES (Minus, Sci+Tec)

“The XY-4D is simply the best X/Y controller I’ve seen on the iPad yet”.

Conductr is an app that musicians and DJs alike can design according to their specific needs: it features several different modules to control Ableton Live and Traktor.
Conductr is not about mimicking hardware or desktop software on the iPad, but to develop a new way of interacting with music.

Conductr is a freemium app. You can download a trial version for free.

WARNING: Conductr is a software controller. It doesn't make any sound by itself.

Customer Reviews

This app is game-changing

I downloaded this app a couple months ago and I honestly can’t believe I went this long without it. As someone who both mixes live and records in arrangement view, I use this app for everything.
Being able to use my iPad instead of a midi keyboard comes in handy, especially when traveling. The option to pitch bend and play with one hand is something I never really thought about, but I love the feature.
In arrangement, this app is really helpful to simplify the recording process and not have such cumbersome set up.
Overall, the functionality is great and the design is even better. Very intuitive, only took me a couple hours to figure out. I think in the end, it was worth just purchasing the super pack in the beginning and getting all the features. Way cheaper than buying other gear that allows you to do just one of the functions in the app.

Please update this app

This app is great... when it works!!!! Which I'd say is around 20% of the time. Most of the time, I open a blank samples screen. I try closing and restarting the app, I try restarting the iPad and computer, what usually ends up working is deleting the app and re downloading it.
Don't be an idiot like me, buy the OTHER Live control app NOT made by themselves. Maybe an update will fix my many bugs (levels don't show in the mixer when it's full screen etc) but still, I paid $25 for an app that barely works. It's pretty neat when it does work though.

I should not need to have iTunes to make this work

I am an Apple user but I do not like having iTunes on any of my Devices except for the one that I use to manage my iDevices. It frustrates me that I need to have iTunes installed to be able to use this app to control Traktor on my PC with an iPad running the Conductr app. iTunes is one of the most awful softwares I've ever seen in this life. I would think this app is pretty sweet if I didn't have to have iTunes installed to use it.
