Teenage Engineering OP-1 meets Propellerheads Reason in a very short demo of the OP-1 / Reason control surface functionality.
Working with Reason 6.0.2, OP-1 OS #12234 and newer.
And here’s the background info:
SmithsonMartin Inc. has done it again. This time it’s called Kontrol Surface 1974.
Launching at NAMM 2012, combine this amazing new controller with the Emulator Modular software and you have the most powerful midi controller on the planet!
Create your own custom multi-touch layouts for ANY midi software;
Traktor, Virtual DJ, Torq, Mixvibes, Ableton, Serato (with external mixer), ProDJ, MixMeister
ProTools, Ableton, Reason, Kore, FL Studio, Sonar, Logic, Acid
Resolume, Arkaos, Grand VJ, PCDJ, Virtual DJ, Serato, Modul8, Mixvibes VFX
iLive, Cakewalk, ADK, Soundforge, Yamaha PM5D, Digidesign
GrandMA, Lightjockey, ShowXpress, Venue Magic
First performance with QuNeo controlling sounds in Abelton Live. Pressure is mapped to repeat rate and X and Y control Filter and a Bit Crusher. Lotsa fun – we were fighting over who gets to go next.

QuNeo is a different species of pad controller for electronic musicians, DJs, VJs and DIY hackers. While it covers all of the functionality of other pad controllers, QuNeo adds the power of touch recognition in other dimensions.
16 square pads provide 127 levels of Velocity response. And X-Y location. And continuous pressure. For each pad. Times sixteen.
2 rotary sensors allow you to scrub, trigger, stretch, pinch and play phrases and sound files, manipulate continuous controllers and more . Each rotary sensor measures angle, pressure and distance from the center.
9 touch sensitive sliders can be mapped to fader and effects controls. LEDs within each slider act as VU meters or remind you where you were. Multi-touch lets you select a length between two fingers to set stereo locations or filter resonances. Tapping a slider can mute or toggle any track or function.
The switches are located in smart groupings to select samples, fader banks, and transport controls. Each of the switches can scan up and down through files at speeds variable with your touch. Great for quickly locating that perfect fill or telling your looper you really meant it.
Solid State Logic in Oxford, UK, releases new features for its Nucleus control surface. Nucleus users can now download dedicated DAW control profiles for Ableton Live and Propellerhead Reason, in addition to existing profiles for Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase/Nuendo, and any other DAW applications that support MCU or HUI.
SSL states that OS X Lion is now fully supported for Nucleus, with a revised Java-based Console Browser. The Nucleus soundcard now also supports 64-bit for Mac users.
Sam Counihan, International Sales Manager at Ableton AG, says, “This new template tightly connects the feature sets of both the Nucleus and Ableton Live. Live’s unique and dynamic workflow is brought to life through the Nucleus’ tactile worksurface, and is complimented by the console’s high-end audio interface featuring the same SuperAnalogue technology as found in the company’s flagship Duality and AWS consoles. In other words, bring a laptop with Ableton Live to any studio with an SSL rig and you’re good to go.”
This download contains the latest upgrades for the Nucleus console: Nucleus console software Version 1.5; Nucleus browser V. 1.06; Mac Soundcard driver V. 2.00.05; IpMIDI (latest versions for both Mac and PC).
The app lets you create your own pages, or use the built-in MIDI keyboard (with Arpeggiator, modulation wheel, pitch wheel and accelerometer velocity), the built-in Pads controller (with customizable pads banks, accelerometer velocity, transposition, full velocity mode and repeat mode) or the 16 channels MIDI mixer (pan, volume and mute).
The page editor lets you create your own control pages. It contains some useful stuffs like pasteboard, undo manager, multi selection or z-order managment.
TB MIDI Stuff use CoreMidi : you can use any supported device, like the native WiFi driver or the camera connection kit with an external sound card. Each page can use a different CoreMidi driver.
Controls can use the iPad accelerometer as input (even faders and knobs), in each dimension (X, Y, Z or, for XY Pads, a mix of them).
The application library contains :
- Rotary sliders
- Horizontal sliders
- Vertical sliders
- Horizontal faders (with different colors)
- Vertical faders (with different colors)
- Mixer knobs (with different colors and flavors)
- Drum Pads
- XY Pads
- Value displayers
- Rounded rects
Each control can drive simultaneously multiple MIDI messages like Control Change messages (single 7bits and coarse/fine 14bits), RNP/NRPN messages (7 and 14bits), Pitch Bend messages, Program Changes messages, Note On/Off messages.
You can open up to 32 pages simultaneously. You can change pages with three fingers swipe gesture, manage the pages order, open multiple instances of the same page and change the MIDI Out driver or the MIDI Out channel (or both) without entering the editor for each instance.
Swipe shortcuts (1, 2 and 3 fingers) let you access quickly to the MIDI keyboard, the pads controller or the 16 channels mixer.
TB MIDI Stuff contains some demo pages and 7 pads banks. For the pads banks :
- Default Bank
- Drum Kit (GM)
- Major Chords
- Minor Chords
- Simple Chord Generator
Blip Shaper Walkthrough
a) creating percussive patterns with monome b) shaping the individual sounds that make up the patterns with multitouch gestures c) recording touchscreen gestures as automation d) storing, duplicating and navigation patterns e) recording the resulting audio to a dynamic buffer f) manipulating the buffer with a multitouch cut-up approach g) visualizing everything with dual screens
“Combining sophisticated, beautiful visualizations, elegant mode shifts that move from timbre to musical pattern, and two-dimensional and three-dimensional interactions, it’s a complete visualization and interface for live re-composition.”
The complete controller for Ableton Live
TouchAble version 1.3 was recently released, you can check the changes here >>
• Clip Grid
6 Modules to control every aspect of Ableton Live 8 wirelessly!
TouchAble App for iPad is available through the iTunes App Store http://www.itunes.com/app/touchable
touchAble is an unique iPad app is the first application to give Ableton Live users full control over their digital audio workstation, without the tiresome process of manual midi-mapping. touchAble allows live users to walk away from their computer and perform live from anywhere within Wi-Fi range (using ad-hoc connection or router) while keeping latency at a minimum.
TouchAble App includes 6 advanced modules, Clip grid, Mixer, Devices, Pads, Keys, XY Pad, and 2 commands menu : clips and transport.
TouchAble provides a powerful, intuitive and reliable multitouch control solution for professional use.
TouchAble includes templates for lives plugins and is fully compatible with vsts, audiounits and instruments.
The new update, touchAble 1.3 contains over 30 new features and changes, such as a loop and beatjump section, enabling anything from CDJ style mixes to creative loop manipulation, a completely rebuilt mixer that allows users to modularly choose the controls they need – complemented by the long awaited crossfader. 3 new native templates have been added: Auto Filter, Ping Pong Delay & the very first Instrument – Impulse – and are waiting to be tweaked. The new Settings Menu not only offers a cascade of new control-options – but also simplifies the connection process by adding Bonjour support.
changes / new features:
- added Loop menu to clip module. Do loops on the fly – on whole tracks or on already prepared loops. think Traktor looping – Keep loops that you like.
- added keep loop feature which allow you to save the new loop made as new clip.
- Added beatjump / loopjump menu to clip module. Do beatjump / loopjump of a set size in the currently playing clip of a track.

- Finally touchable will connect via bonjour – tests show that almost no setup is needed to connect
Lock navigation in Clip grid – On / Off:
-If enabled, clips will start immediately after touching – but you won’t be able to scroll in the clip grid
Slide Clips to launch in Nav Lock Mode – On / Off:
-Makes it possible to slide e.g. a row of clips in different tracks to start them
