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

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.

'The level of control and amount of customisation is really impressive as is the integration with Live. SonicTouch Gold Award.' SONICSTATE

'touchAble can really add a new level of performance to your gigs and recording sessions.' DJMAG

'touchAble promises to be a real game-changer in the world of controller apps.' ASKAUDIO magazine

'Ableton users with an iPad, it's an easy recommendation.' RESIDENT ADVISOR

'touchAble goes further than any app has before.' CREATE DIGITAL MUSIC

'There are so many great features that each Live user can find useful as their main controller.' DUBSPOT

The included Modules are:

Launch Clips and Scenes, Solo and arm tracks, or open up the loop controls to quickly loop a running Clip.
An overview provides quick access to any position in the set. Create or delete Tracks, Scenes, Clips and even stop buttons.
Edit MIDI Clips with the MIDI Editor. Drum Mode makes it easy to lay down a drum loop. Chord Mode allows for precise note placements and lengths - in any scale you want.

Adjust Volumes, Sends, Pans and the Crossfader.
Accurate dB readings and level meters.
Snap and Timed mode with 4 different envelopes.

Access Live Devices, VSTs or AUs. Supports Devices in Racks.

With the addition of the Live Device Template Pack (in-app purchase), all Live devices will look and feel exactly as their counterparts in Live.

All of them include Scales selector, Note repeat, Aftertouch and Positional velocity

touchAble 3 is compatible with Live 8& 9 (official compatibility : 8.4 / 9.2 and above) - Lite, Intro, Standard and Suite - and runs on all generations of iPad.
The Server Software requires OSX 10.5 and above or Windows XP and above.

Customer Reviews


Though just a tad on the pricey end, the price is well worth it. Just the possiblities of being able to control Ableton live 9 with a touch pad is wonderful enough, but they've gone beyond the basics. Being able to see your tracks and their effects is awesome. Controlling them real time either though WiFi or USB port gives you realtime control and creative possibilites. I actually wanted to buy this app instead of Lemur, I'm glad I did.


Doesn't work with wifi - waste of time and money.

Doesn't work ?!?on OSX REFUND PLEASE
