touchAble Ableton Live iPad Control App Updated

Developer Christian Blomert has updated touchAble – the iPad controller app for Ableton Live – to version 1.1.

Here’s the official description of what’s new in touchAble 1.1:

Interaction
  • We enabled multitasking (needs iOS 4.2)
  • We added a “Disable Sleep” option
  • Changeable track width: show 8/4/2 tracks at once – Great for Live-performances!
  • Changeable clip height: normal size & double size
  • If you decide to show 4 or 2 tracks instead of 8 the mixer-view will automatically show more parameters at once.
  • 2 tracks-mode will show volume, send A+B and another parameter of your choice per track.
  • We added “momentary solo/cue buttons”: a short tap on solo/cue will toggle it on / off, a long tap will toggle on when you begin the touch and toggle off when you lift your finger
  • We added optional “relative faders”: Instead of jumping to your fingers position the faders will only move the amount that your finger moved before.
Transport
  • Dedicated stop button
  • Dedicated record button
  • Tempo Control: Drag with your Finger over the BPM counter to increase / decrease the tempo. To change it faster start on the left side, to do it slower drag on the right side.
  • Current song position display
Improvements:
Communication between touchAble and Live
  • We optimized the way touchAble connects to Live – the connection is now even more reliable, stable and faster.
  • We changed the process of communication between touchAble and Live: Loading & reloading clips is now 10x faster!
  • touchAble will automatically be synced and stay updated if you load a new set
  • If you delete / add tracks the set will be updated in the background, no annoying wait-times anymore 😉
  • Server App autodefaults to touchAble 1 for iPad 1 & touchAble 2 for iPad 2. On Windows it will default do MIDI Yoke 1 & 2.
Graphic User Interface
  • Inertia Scrolling in all Live-related modules (Clips, Mixer, Devices)
  • Trigger, recording & stopping animations on clips.
  • Moving one view from top to bottom or the other way around will no longer leave the old half empty. The views will switch.
  • Lots of design-changes throughout the app. New menu-bar, mixer, clips, cross and more
  • eq8: added highlight to currently selected dot
Bugfixes:
  • Fixed: Clips now show playstatus after new load / reload
  • Fixed: clips without names now don’t show the name of the clip processed
  • before
  • Fixed: a scene without a name doesn’t use the name of the scene processed before anymore
  • Fixed: an issue that rendered the bottom left corner unresponsive
  • Fixed unreadable text on white clips

touchAble is available in the App Store for $24.99,
