Apple provides you with an app approval tracker correct?

The first major update was approved by apple just a few moments ago. We're currently updating our homepage with the new installers and will release the update within the next few hours.

Don't have time to read 26 pages. Questions:

1. Does it work with Live 7?
2. Does it require purchase of additional software?
3. Why can't I find it in the App Store?

Any answering will be seriously appreciated hardcore.

To be honest, there is more Germans than Frenchies in the touchAble team...
App is ready, we are just setting up the new installer, thanks for your patience.

Ok guys, touchAble 1.1 now available on Apple's App Store!

We have added a number of most wanted enhancements and some new powerful extra features,
we hope you'll like this new version :)

!!!!!!!Please, don't forget to download and install the new touchAble server and scripts installer available here:
http://touch-able.com/Site/Downloads.html


Feedbacks are welcome.

New Features:


Interaction

• We enabled multitasking (needs iOS 4.2)
• We added a “Disable Sleep” option
• Changeable track width: show 8/4/2 tracks at once - Great for Live-performances! (click "nav" button within the cross, the new icon appears, use the right part of the cross oce or twice to enlarge, left to come back to previous size)
• Changeable clip height: normal size & double size (click "nav" button within the cross, the new icon appears, click down the cross to enlarge the height, up to come back to previous size)
• If you decide to show 4 or 2 tracks instead of 8 the mixer-view will automatically show more parameters at once.
• 2 tracks-mode will show volume, send A+B and another parameter of your choice per track.
• We added “momentary solo/cue buttons”: a short tap on solo/cue will toggle it on / off, a long tap will toggle on when you begin the touch and toggle off when you lift your finger
• We added optional “relative faders”: Instead of jumping to your fingers position the faders will only move the amount that your finger moved before.

Transport

• Dedicated stop button
• Dedicated record button
• Tempo Control: Drag with your Finger over the BPM counter to increase / decrease the tempo. To change it faster start on the left side, to do it slower drag on the right side.
• Current song position display


Improvements:


Communication between touchAble and Live

• We optimized the way touchAble connects to Live - the connection is now even more reliable, stable and faster.
• We changed the process of communication between touchAble and Live: Loading & reloading clips is now 10x faster!
• touchAble will automatically be synced and stay updated if you load a new set
• If you delete / add tracks the set will be updated in the background, no annoying wait-times anymore ;)
• Server App autodefaults to touchAble 1 for iPad 1 & touchAble 2 for iPad 2. On Windows it will default do MIDI Yoke 1 & 2.

Graphic User Interface

• Inertia Scrolling in all Live-related modules (Clips, Mixer, Devices)
• Trigger, recording & stopping animations on clips.
• Moving one view from top to bottom or the other way around will no longer leave the old half empty. The views will switch.
• Lots of design-changes throughout the app. New menu-bar, mixer, clips, cross and more
• eq8: added highlight to currently selected dot



Bugfixes:

• Fixed: Clips now show playstatus after new load / reload
• Fixed: clips without names now don’t show the name of the clip processed
before
• Fixed: a scene without a name doesn’t use the name of the scene processed before anymore
• Fixed: an issue that rendered the bottom left corner unresponsive
• Fixed unreadable text on white clips.


Have fun!
