that our goal :)

Well, turns out to be my Mac OS X.6.4 Firewall settings that prevented my iPad to connect.
Once I have "allowed" Live.app in Firewall settings, TouchAble came to life and all is good again :D

BTW; Judging by the sheer number of posts from (confused) Mac users that can not connect, I strongly recommend that you update TouchAble setup guide that will use recommended Firewall settings :wink:

2 questions and a wish:

What's the status for an Android version?
I've read a comment of a Lemur developer (Live controller named Mu), who said the iPad isn't up to par with the Lemur cause it's too slow for 2-way heavy communication. Is that true?

Wish for device mode:
Let us control 4 (16 parameters) or 8 (8 parameters) devices at once!

There is No Android device that is faster and more powerful than iPad at this stage.
Actually, there is No Android based device with 10" screen on the market (other than doubtful net books) yet.

Lemur Mu is a total fail in comparison to LiveControl/TouchAble in that it costs $300 extra (M4L) on top of the device (Lemur costs $2000) yet the Lemur has a much inferior touchscreen technology and much lower screen resolution not to mention not being portable.

Anyway, if what you're saying is true, I wonder why then the developers behind Lemur Mu bothered to create an iPad Live controller app: Griid.

Because they know now their insane long monopole of closed and pricey hype environment is going to die with ipad stuff or upcoming touchscreens/tablet.

@rabouille. I tried to contact christian 2 times, no answer. simply tell me if not interested in sharing tips, i can understand.

Rest assured that the iPad is totally capable of controlling Live. I have a Lemur but prefer using iPads for live performance - I love being able to walk around the stage to communicate with my bandmates. Besides, touchAble/Griid/LiveControl are all great control apps - you're definitely not sacrificing any performance!

Only true if one purchases a Lemur with the sole purpose of controlling Live ;-)

Not only true just for this case, true for general case.

now you can get dual touchscreen at 200$. Ipad at 500$ and 3M multitouch 20 fingers 22' (4x lemur touch area at 1500$)
with a soft such as usine, you're totally free to build whatever control you want, your monitor being usable for other stuff.
and there are such modular tools, even if less powerfull, emerging on ipad.
so, what's the point getting a lemur today?
absolutely no point, they have to make a cheaper true open monitor (portable) or they can GTFT with all their pricey hype.

Don't blame lemur guys, it was the first efficient and powerful multitouch controller for mass musicians...a page is turned, and the good thing is that you have access to more good choices, it is a golden age for musicians.

That is what makes it "tick" ;)

Ok. I finally got chris mails :) cool, ill answer him tonight, i may have found a cool tip myself to reduce preload time ( at least seems here on usine):
Reduce osc tag length ie
/live/name/clip. To /C. Did a lot for me (both in callbacks and process)
It may interest him/ya... ;)
