touchAble is a serious contender for the best iPad app for controlling Ableton currently and the most competent attempt so far. It is easy to setup, has flexibility with respect to access to multiple controls and so far seems very stable.
Having used this for approximately a week, I am already boxing up my Launchpad ready for Ebay, as touchAble has already made this dedicated hardware device redundant, even at this early stage of development.
I think this app could be improved with better control of the clip start and length and if they could add a separate page whereby users could build there own control surface, especially for live performance situations (much like TouchOSC). This would definitely make it the iPad Ableton controller to beat by a long way.
touchAble is now available in the App Store for $16.99.
If you’ve used touchAble, leave a comment and let us know if you think it will make dedicated hardware controllers redundant, too.
