Look out hardware controllers here comes the LV controller for your iOS or Android device. The guys at Imaginando have just dropped what looks to be a game changing controller for Ableton Live and beyond. Some might say you need the tactile feel of an actual button to really have great control, but this controller software sure makes a good argument for all that. Video below.
With the LK Ableton Live Controller you can:
- Control almost every aspect on Ableton Live, from composition to automation, clips, tracks, devices and much more with MATRIX.
- Get the MPC feel on your touchscreen with MIDI PADS, featuring an arpeggiator and chorder. This module works in two modes: Ableton Live and MIDI mode. When working in Ableton Live mode it automatically maps drum rack pads names to each pad on the app. You will never miss a pad again.
- Have extensive control through 128 parameters with MIDI Controller. Just like MIDI PADS, this module works in either MIDI or Ableton Live mode. Forget the old school MIDI mapping. In Ableton Live mode, with the learn function you just need to choose assign and change the parameter… ready to rock!
- Ability for three-dimensional parameter tweaking with X/Y PAD. Just like MIDI PADS and MIDI CONTROLLER this module also works in either MIDI or Ableton Live mode making it to assign parameters on the fly with the learn function.
-The ability to connect USB MIDI interfaces allows you to interact with external gear at the same time you control Ableton Live since you can switch modes on the fly at any time.
To connect LK to your host computer you will need to download and install a software utility called LKBRIDGE on your computer. It is available for Windows and OSX. For detailed operation information and requirements please visit www.imaginando.pt/products/lk
