touchAble is THE controller app for Ableton Live.

"A controller that rivals the Push in the hardware space, and almost completely leaves the competition behind in the app space." DJ TECHTOOLS

*** Limited time offer on touchAble Bundle (touchAble 3 + touchAble Mini) ***

touchAble 3 offers a vast array of new and improved features and finally connects via a simple USB cable.
The new Live Device Template Pack (available as an in-app purchase) provides a well designed layout for nearly every device in Live.

touchAble 3 includes six different modules that - combined - give you full control over Lives Session-View.
Its modular interface allows to split the screen to show two modules at the same time - or to maximise the surface area of a single module.
And if the size of one iPad is not enough, you can use touchAble with as many iPads or iPhones (using touchAble Mini) as you want.

New Devices & USB Connection: best ever

I've owned touchable for a while, and have also tried Lemur and Conductr, as well as Push. While I love the feel of jamming on Push, I don't always have it with me outside my studio. Touchable was always a solid app, but I admit that creating a wireless connection was always a bit of a pain. It's now so fast and responsive over usb, and controlling the native Live devices wish this app will make you think that he Ableton developers intended them to be played that way. I see myself getting so much more value out of the stock instruments and effects now, because they are so much more fun to use.

Killer update. Buy the devices immediately, you won t regret it.

My favorite app evar.

This app is the only thing I’ve ever seen that makes a touchscreen truly SUPERIOR to hardware. It’s crazy how for my workflow, this app blows away every MIDI controller I’ve ever tried. Being able to control so many parameters and now with the devices having touchscreen GUI access to everything is just like the final blow.

I feel like touchable 3 is like that time when the first digital video camera came out and people started switching over from film. I expect to see touchable workflows slowly but surely starting to replace more and more MIDI controllers.

In short, my favorite app of all time. It is the centerpiece of what I do as an artist and performer. 10/10


Buhbye Push, see you later Lemur. This app is very intuitive, fun, inspiring. As an Ableton user since V1 all I can say is H*LL YES, this gives Ableton a "Live" feel. It's more fun than NI's Maschine.

Ability to connect with USB cable and the Live templates were a no-brainer update for me.

Not sure what that other reviewer was on talking about not being able to install due to outdated scripts. That seems like a conflict in where he's installing a script to, but I'm not the developers or affiliated with them. Rude move to leave a one star review when the developers have always been responsive on their website . This app is truly outstanding, it's WELL beyond five stars.
