Patchworks has updated Conductr – its controller for Ableton Live and Traktor – to version 2.0.
Conductr is specifically designed to be a controller that is tailored to the iPad, vs imitating traditional hardware. See our interview with Conductr’s Oriol Rosell for his perspective on why iPad apps shouldn’t just imitate hardware controllers.
Here’s what’s new in Conductr 2.0:
- Conductr 2 features a modular environment where you can add the modules you want in order to control Ableton Live or Traktor.
- Traktor Module:
- Flexible interface: up to 4 slots for any deck you want to place (even duplicate them).
- Each deck features 3 different view modes:
- Player: Control track browsing, progress bar, loops, cues, sync, tempo and flux, plus bend and jog touchstrips.
- Mixer: Control volume, 3 band EQs with kills, 2 filter modes (Lo and Hi pass), monitor your cues, key note control and gain adjust.
- Fx: Control single or grouped fx units, automatic display of all fx and parameters’ names and control types, and create your own single or grouped fx presets.
- New interface color palette
