touchAble Mini: Ableton Live control on iPhone & iPod touch

Post by Le k » Wed Feb 12, 2014 10:22 am

Hello guys,
the touchAble family is growing..

..step by step!

And sometimes, the smallest steps are the biggest ones. We are very proud to finally unveil our - only seemingly - little brother to touchAble on the iPad:

touchAble Mini for iPhone & iPod Touch.

touchAble Mini is now available at a special introductory price of 9,99 US$ / 8,99 euros at the Apple App Store.
https://itunes.apple.com/app/touchable- ... 93938?mt=8

Extreme compatibility with old devices starting from iphone 3gs / ipod touch 3rd gen IOS 5.1

We hope you like it! :)



With the release of touchAble Mini we also updated our Server package to 2.0.3!

We improved compatibility with both, Windows and Mac (Mavericks especially!). Please give them a try if you encountered any problems with the previous version!

Hi. I was just wondering if there is a way to use this with any kind of wired connection.

I would just like to have a back up plan incase ad hoc or wifi has stability issues on my computer.

Also, do you have any tips for setting up laptops to avoid the connection kind of 'falling asleep' ? I have used some midi and OSC apps in the past on my Windows laptop and it is frustrating when at random moments I'll be adjusting things and not even know if the computer is responding.

It might just be my old laptop. I have a new one. I haven't tried this stuff on it yet.

Oh, also!! I don't know if I've seen any images/video of browsing mode anywhere?? I'm curious about that too :)

This looks really cool. Is it possible to use this in conjunction with Touchable running on an iPad as well? I would find it very handy to use the iPhone for a few dedicated things like transport controls

I went ahead and bought it. Very lovely and responsive app. Runs extremely smoothly and has so many features tucked into such a small package.

So far everything is great, I noticed a midi mapping thing, is that for adding midi controllers through it? I did not read the Manual yet haha.

One thing I couldn't quite figure out.

In Drum Racks, I wanted to edit a device within a drum rack slot. I don't know if I missed anything but I was unable to get in there.

I held off on the Touchable update for a few weeks, waiting until I also planned to update Live.

I finally updated Live, the Touchable mini app, plus downloaded the latest Touchable installation file.

Earlier I was using Touchable mini a lot and had no issues, worked as expected.

Now I have a no server found issue.

I checked out the Touchable forum to find that there were many related posts on the same problem.

Is this something that is in the works to be fixed sometime soon? Is there a step I overlooked in installation?

Well, after having my computer shut down I opened the host, then my app. I got lucky. Then I opened my Live. And it began working. Then I tried it tethered and that too began working. So I think I'm all good, it may just require full restarts and a touch of voodoo.
