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.

What's New in Version 3.2.2
Fixed possible crash when using Devices & VSTs.
I've used this app regularly for the last couple of years, and it's become a mainstay of my production work in Ableton Live. It packs an awful lot of features and it's become increasingly reliable. I think Touchable and Lemur are the two most useful iOS apps for working with Ableton. I only wish Touchable had a more thorough PDF guide to help figuring out what each feature and button does.
Would get 5
I love it but like anything new there will be bugs. My only gripe is when you change a midi instrument it will then completely crash. I'm using OS X.11.5 and the very latest Ableton update. Please fix this because this app is glorious. And this app is running on my iPad Pro 12.9 with iOS 9.3.2. I hope this helps.
Beware this company
Do not buy, it doesn't even work. It never connects to Ableton, instead it's always an error message that Live Is Not Running. The developers have known of this issue for a long time and never bothered to fix it. The developers are arrogant and don't bother to respond to support requests. I purchased the app and the extras and apparently wasted my money. This company does not care about it's customers.
