Ableton today introduced Ableton Live Set Export – a new software development kit for iOS that’s designed to make it easy for developers to add ‘Export to Live’ functionality into music apps.
As their intro video demos, Live Set Export addresses a growing need for Live users. As more musicians are jamming with iOS music apps, they want to be able to move their musical ideas to their desktop DAW.
In the demo, Patterning developer Ben Kamen and Triqtraq developer Sebastian Schatz demonstrate how an iOS jam session, using multiple devices and apps, can be saved to a Live Set and then arranged in Ableton Live.
These iOS apps have been updated to support Live Set Export:
Details on the Live Set Export SDK are available at Github.
We expect Live Set Export to be added to the ‘must have’ feature list for iOS music apps that do sequencing, because of the popularity of Live with electronic musicians.
