It is an app designed to control all the functions of the "Session" screen (matrix clips) Ableton Live.
This is an application derived from its big sister developed for the iPad. It is reserved for "small format" of the Apple brand, namely Touch iPods and iPhones. Personally I use it on an iPhone 5C.
It serves me in the studio to easily control Live, especially since the small size of my iPhone allows you to find him a little free surface between or even other devices. My APC40
is much less of a hit and made a little face ...
The ergonomics of the app is generally very well thought out, except at the edition clips noon, when navigation in the clip and adjust loop points requires fingers ants that I did not. But hey, there is the constraint on the size of such devices which the application is intended ...
Documentation is concise and perfectly clear. Anyway, anyone mastery Live quickly find his bearings.
This is an ultra-stable app. It has no latency in the contrôle.J 'ignores cons though it is often updated.
As indicated above, this application is reserved for Ableton Live control. Dialogue with the computer is via Wifi.
I use it for about 3 months, and I can not do without!
I had not tried many apps control like this before, because I was particularly cooled by TouchOSC experience unspeakable galley set PC (three software to operate simultaneously for Live interprets correctly commands sent from the iPhone, horror ...)
Here, the configuration is a breeze and requires no additional software other than the soft "server" to install on the computer. Otherwise I use hardware controllers (APC 40
, Push). As I find Push difficult to replace, as the APC has - in my very subjective sense - no real reason to be with this kind of app, when a headed terminal available of course.
I especially appreciate the faithful representation of the matrix of clips, the ability to load the plugs on the fly and direct access to their parameters, the ability to create, duplicate, delete all clips, tracks, scenes that is desired.
I wish I could also copy / paste wherever I, but hey, no big deal. I do not know if the price is still € 8.99 (introductory price I received), but at this price, yes, I would do this choice.
