Das iPad entwickelt sich unter Musikfreunden immer mehr zur eierlegende Wollmilchsau, immer mehr Apps sind für Musiker zugeschnitten und bereichern so manche Lebenslage. Das neuste App im Bunde ist touchAble und es ermöglicht euch auf einfachste Weise die kabellose Kontrolle von Ableton Live.

Das App erlaubt es euch innerhalb deines Liveset zu navigieren oder auch den Mixer zu steuern. Außerdem gibt dir das App die Kontrolle über Instrumente und Effekte, es wurde auch an ein virtuelles Keyboard sowie Drumpads gedacht – beide mit 5 Stufen Velocity sowie den wichtigsten dazugehörigen Funktionen für die Clips.

Der Multi-User Mode ermöglicht es außerdem das zwei iPads auf Ableton zugreifen… Erhältlich ist touchAble direkt im App-Store für lausige 13,99 €.
