iTRIGGER – new MIDI controller app for iPad

June 21, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

iTRIGGER is a midi controller app for iPad. It allows you to control Ableton Live and other DJ software using your iPad over a wireless or usb connection. It allows you to launch clips and scenes and control many other features of Ableton.

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.

iTRIGGER 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.

LiveControl 2 — Next generation Ableton Live control

June 4, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Live iPad controller from Liine and ST8 has been released.

LiveControl 2 gives you every single feature you need to jam, produce and perform with Ableton Live. The interface is divided across four pages: Launch, Modulate, Play and Sequencer. Each page is deep and feature-rich, while the layout is clear and intuitive. Compatible with both Live 8 and Live 9. Best of all, LiveControl 2 is completely free for all Lemur users.

Launch

Launch drum clips while riding the fader on your piano track. Simultaneously open the FX strip for your vocals. View single channel strips or FX strips, or open the whole panel. Any combination is possible on the Launch page. Save and recall any combination of clips with the Presets function. Of course, you also get a complete transport section, including BPM, quantization and metronome controls.

Modulate

Control any effect or instrument, anywhere in your Live Set. Or control multiple devices at once. Assign up to 8 parameters to a traditional XY pad, or get creative with the four different types of modulation: LFO, Physics, Recorder and Presets. LFO allows you to tempo-sync any parameter to different wave shapes. Physics gives you control over the classic Lemur bouncing balls. Recorder lets you record, playback and edit your movements. Presets lets you save, recall and morph between modulation snapshots, Kapture-style!

Play

Play harmonies and melodies in key. The Play page is a harmonic grid that makes it easy to make music. Improvise by fingering patterns, without worrying about black and white piano keys. Quickly switch MIDI channel to change instrument. The layout includes a handy channel strip, giving you full control over MIDI expression (Pitch Bend, Mod Wheel), mixer settings (Volume, Pan, Effect Sends), or an FX strip with 8 macro knobs. Improvise your riff in the Play page, record into a MIDI clip, then switch over to the Sequencer page to edit your pattern.

Sequencer

Instead of using a mouse to point and click, how amazing would it be to tap, drag and touch the notes in the piano roll? LiveControl 2 lets you edit, improvise and perform MIDI clips. Draw notes, tweak the start and length, humanise the velocities. Over a dozen helpful tools to help you get creative: keys, scales, fold, chords, strum, reverse, invert, flip and more! Choose a key and scale to guide your melodies and use Quick Chord to instantly create harmonies.
