Apps for controlling Live with an iOS or Android device
- Live Versions: All
- Operating System: All
There are a number of applications which can control Live with an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Android device. Please note however that the current versions of Live do not support multi-touch gestures in Windows 8 or any other touch-optimized operating system.
touchAble is full-featured controller app for Live which offers dedicated views and controls for Live's Session View, MIDI Note Editor, Mixer, Devices, Browser, and more.
Based on Lemur from Liine, LiveControl 2 gives access to all important functions to perform with Live, e.g. triggering clips, notes and drums as well as changing levels and devices parameters.
LK the successor of LIVKONTROL by Imaginando features a Clip Launcher, control over track parameters, a Clip Composer, MIDI Pads and mappable MIDI sliders.
Touch OSC offers a level of customization which requires an intermediate-advanced knowledge of both the software and MIDI/OSC (Open Sound Control) protocols, however for those who are up to the challenge, creating custom virtual controllers can be a very rewarding project.
TouchOSC transmits its messages to Live via a program called Osculator.
TouchOSC is available for iOS devices as well as for Android devices.
TouchDAW is a full-featured DAW control and general purpose MIDI control app for Android™ tablets and phones.
Besides control surface emulation, the app brings a number of general purpose MIDI controllers, such as a multitouch keyboard, multitouch launchpads, a MIDI mixer, configureable xy-controller pads and the possibility to link a phone's sensors to MIDI controllers.
