Can you provide some details regarding the sets hanging? What are the symptoms & what do you do to overcome the problem?

I'm going to be using an iPad & touchAble soon, with the goal of using them in performance, & I'm gathering as much info as I can.

Any other issues touchAble users care to comment on?

Symptoms: Touchable just not reflecting the Live set accurately. I'll be plugging away jamming, and then maybe add a device to a track or a new track (via my desktop), and Touchable *occasionally* does not 'see' it once it's added.

I've solved it every time by simply killing Touchable and reopening it which you can do without stopping your Live set. When it reopens, it sees everything properly. I think it's just a momentary break in connection, but haven't chased it down as it's pretty rare. I can still say with 100% enthusiasm that this is *easily* the best companion tool for Live I've ever used. It is pure genius. I love having both Touchable and my APC mk 1 on my desk, but if I had to give up one, it would be the APC.

Also sets made on the ipad using the Korg Gadget app now export directly into Ableton. A great feature

cheers
