screen480x480 (11)CONDUCTR is the first Ableton Live controller for iPad SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR LIVE PERFORMANCE: a whole new concept, based on functionality, adaptability and intuitivity.
CONDUCTR is ERGONOMIC (4 different view modes: you only see what you want to see), MODULAR (you can create as many User Modules as you want), EXPANDABLE (upcoming System Modules to customize it to the max) and SMART (it takes maximum advantage of multitouch technology: you can even play it without watching the iPad).

CONDUCTR’s interface is ergonomic: it ADAPTS TO YOUR NEEDS and can be changed up to 4 different view modes at any given time, even while playing live.

CONDUCTR features 3 System Modules (Clips, Mixer and Master) and as many User Modules as you want. You can control up to 5 parameters from any device and any track featured in your Ableton Live set on each User Module.

CONDUCTR IS EXPANDABLE: it will grow within a short time with upcoming new System Modules.

Oh, and you can even play it… WITHOUT WATCHING THE IPAD!

WARNING: CONDUCTR is a software controller. It doesn’t produce any sound by itself.


• Ableton Live 8.2.6 or higher.

• Mac OSX 10.6 or higher / Windows XP or higher.

CONDUCTR WORKS WIRELESS, so you will need to install the Conductr Server software in your computer. Download it for free at conductr.net/downloads.


When you are playing live, you don’t really need to see EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME. The CONDUCTR interface is flexible and can be adapted to your specific, moment-to-moment needs in order to show only the elements you want to focus on.

• 4 different view modes: 4, 3, 2 or 1 views on screen.

• View modes can be changed on the fly according to any momentary need.

• Each view can contain 1 module.

• Modules can be changed on any view while playing.

• Clear and simple clips grid with scene side launchers and both individual tracks and master stop buttons.

• Simply drag the grid with two fingers to find the clips you are looking for!

• Clip and loop evolution bars.

• SHIFT mode to give you fast access to tracks and Master Volume and Mute.

• LINK function to hook up the Clip module and the Mixer module’s horizontal touch scroll.

• Clear and simple control of each track’s Volume and Mute.

• Smart faders.

• High-resolution clip peak meters with ultra-low latency.

• SHIFT mode for fast access to each track’s Pan smart crossfader and Solo and Record buttons.

• LOCK/UNLOCK Master Volume function.

• Track’s volume LIMITER function.

• LINK function to hook up the Mixer Module and the Clip Module’s views.

• Clear and simple Module including: Master Volume, Cue Volume, A/B Crossfader, and transport controls.

• Create as many User Modules as you want.

• Each User Module can contain up to 5 parameter controllers from any device on any track featured in your Ableton Live set.

• 4 different control interfaces: faders, crossfaders, buttons and quantized scales.

• User Modules can be created on the fly by surfing and selecting any of your set’s parameters on the iPad or through the LEARN feature.

• User Modules can be quickly edited at any time, even while playing.

• RESET feature: create parameter’s values memories and recover them whenever you want.

Fastest and easiest module set up ever!

• Add any parameter to any User Module by simply moving it on your desktop software set.

Play your User Modules without watching the iPad!

• Control different User Module parameters depending on how many fingers you use anywhere on the screen.

• Impulse and acceleration detection system.

• Automatic snap to 0 dB and silence.

• Upcoming new System Modules.

BlindControl is the first MIDI controller for the iPad that you can really use on stage. Its unique interface allows you to control ten parameters of your Waldorf Blofeld synthesizer blindly with a single hand.

You control two parameters via horizontal and vertical movement with one finger, another two parameters with two fingers, three, four, five… The starting point isn’t important, only your finger movement matters.
It’s a simple idea. You will be amazed by how powerful it is.


– control TEN parameters BLINDLY with ONE HAND
– SEAMLESS integration with the Waldorf Blofeld synthesizer
– NO MIDI HASSLE: conveniently select what you want to control from a nicely grouped list of parameters
– KEEP/REVERT: choose if you want to revert to the original value when you release your finger off the screen
– ADJUST SENSITIVITY ON THE FLY by moving only some of the fingers that touch the screen
– eight COLOR CODED presets
– load presets, turn knobs on your Blofeld, do whatever you want – BlindControl JUST WORKS.

You can connect your iPad with your Blofeld using Apple’s Camera Connection Kit and a USB cable. MIDI interfaces for the iPad will work, too, if your interface supports SysEx message. THE ALESIS iO DOCK DOESN’T. Only Alesis can fix this. Note that you must use a USB cable on the Blofeld Desktop version since only the Keyboard version has a MIDI out. You can also connect BlindControl with your Blofeld via your Mac and Bluetooth or Wifi.

Mira Controller

Posted by Mikers On June - 29 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

mzl.ejttbzyg.480x480-75Mira is the easiest way to control a Max application from an iPad. Launch Mira and it will automatically connect to Max and display the part of your patch you want to control remotely. When you change a button or slider on the iPad, the corresponding Max object changes, with zero setup or network configuration. It is truly a mirror of your Max patch.

Mira controls any number of Max patches on any number of computers. You can also use multiple copies of Mira to control a single patch.

There are no OSC messages to wrangle, and everything you do in Max is immediately reflected in Mira.

Check out cycling74.com/mira for videos, examples, and more.

Mira Features:

+ Automatically control any number of patches from your device

+ Use mira.frame objects to define viewable regions in your patch. Each frame shows up as a tab in Mira.

+ Support the majority of standard Max UI objects, with more to come.

+ New mira.multitouch object allows for gestural control

+ New mira.motion object sends accelerometer data from your device

+ Multiple instances of Mira can control a single patch for collaborative performance

+ Works over WiFi or an ad-hoc network

We wanted to make it easier to connect your iPad to Max, so you could focus on the important part – using your patch! Mira handles all networking details so you can start controlling your Max patches in two easy steps. First, place a mira.frame object in your patch — this represents the screen of the iPad. Then, drop UI objects onto the frame, and they instantly appear on your device, ready to use.

Each mira.frame you add in Max creates a new tabbed view in Mira, so you can organize the control of your patch into multiple pages.

iTRIGGER inbound

Posted by Mikers On June - 21 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

POJ Studios enter the app world with iTRIGGER, a grid-based MIDI controller for iPad. It is designed specifically for use with Ableton Live but also works with other music software. iTRIGGER allows bi-directional communication to mix music, launch clips, change parameters like levels and panning, and provides feedback to the user through the multi-coloured grid display.

When the user first connects iTRIGGER to their computer either by WIFI or a compatible iPad midi accessory iTRIGGER becomes a standard x-y midi controller allowing the user to assign the buttons as they wish. Once iTRIGGER is correctly synced with Ableton Live all of the buttons are automatically assigned and lit up by the software in 4 separate modes, selectable within the app:

  • ‘CLIPS’ mode: The 8×8 grid is assigned to an 8×8 area of clips from Live’s ‘Session View’ with the buttons lighting up to signify whether a clip is loaded, playing or empty. The user can navigate their way around Live’s ‘Session View’ using the directional buttons in the top corner of iTRIGGER and press the corresponding button to play clips or scenes using the scene play buttons at the end of each row.
  • MISC’ mode: A miscellaneous set of controls including track levels, panning, effect levels, enable/disable track, cue track and track record.
  • ‘D.RACK’ mode: For playing instruments using the 4×4 drum rack layout.
  • ‘X-Y’ mode: For custom assignment using an X-Y layout.

image-6-768x1024iTRIGGER supports AirPlay to stream video performances live to compatible devices via WiFi. The app’s background and button colours can be changed and the button images can be completely hidden against a black background for light shows.

iTRIGGER will be available in all regions from JUNE 22, 2013 exclusively on the iPad App Store. iTRIGGER will have a special week long launch price of $2.99 USD (priced accordingly in other regions) returning to the standard price of $7.99 USD on June 29.

Roland M-300 Remote

Posted by Mikers On April - 9 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

One day there won’t be a single product that can’t be controlled via an iPad, and I’m sure Roland are leading the charge!

mzl.xrbdcmgi.480x480-75M-300 Remote is an application for remotely controlling the Roland M-300 V-Mixer live mixing console.

●This applications makes it possible to adjust mixing parameters from a variety of listening points on stage or around the room, away from the M-300 positioned at a fixed location.

●Combined with the easy operation afforded by the iPad’s large screen and Multi-Touch interface, this application makes it easy to remotely view and adjust settings.

It is also equally useful as a sub-display and controller when placed beside the M-300 V-Mixer.

Controllable parameters:

– Preamp Gain
– Pan
– Solo
– Mute
– Fader
– Sends on Fader
– 4-Band Parametric EQ and HPF
– EQ Copy/Paste/Undo

– Pan
– Solo
– Mute
– Fader
– 8-Band Parametric EQ
– EQ Copy/Paste/Undo

– 31 Band Graphic EQ
– GEQ Copy/Paste/Undo
– Solo Clear
– Scene Recall/Store/Clear

Viewable-only parameters:

– Phantom Power Status
– Pad Status
– Gain Reduction on Gate
– Gain Reduction on Compressor
– Name and Color
– Meter

– Gain Reduction on Gate
– Gain Reduction on Compressor
– Name and Color
– Meter

– Scene Lock/Filter/Fade Status
– Meter Overview

Important notes:
*Use with the most recent firmware version of the M-300.
*A wireless USB adapter (Roland WNA1100-RL) is required.

*A Wi-Fi router (wireless LAN router, etc.) is recommended but if not available, connection can be made directly to the wireless USB adapter in ad-hoc mode.

*Because the wireless USB adapter occupies the M-300’s USB port, functions that use a USB flash key (such as recording, playback, and backing up settings) are not possible while the wireless USB adapter is connected.
*A single iPad can be connected at one time. This application cannot be used concurrently with the M-300 RCS PC/Mac remote application software.
