No it's not, we don't really use MIDI so it's useless for touchAble

most of the changes under the hood were tied to stability and performance - most prominently we have rewritten our Server completely to allow for USB connections and maximum availability.
Inside the app, it's not a much different story - next to a few bug fixes and the templates, most of the work went into improving stability and reliability. cpu and battery drain was reduced and everything was optimised to run on an ipad1
We honestly think it's by far the most stable, most reliable app/server combo we have ever released - so if that's what you are out for - i would definitely recommend to update :)

Drum racks cannot have the same behavior as within Live yet. Hopefully soon...

I also noticed that an old layout I was playing with in the designer still showed up. So nothing rely gets erased. It all just gets improved :P

If you already have Touchable2 (or mini), you'll see the update button on the app store, or if you have auto updates, it'll probably just update on its own.

Edit: just discovered Beat Repeat "Live" button!!

Awesome. I'm not in a rush, just not an Apple guy at all and would love to replace the iPad with an Android tablet down the line. Thanks again, seriously, this is the best possible addition to Live a person can buy IMO, and I'm not shy about telling people that.

Bit laggy from time to time (usb, didnt try wifi yet) but nethertheless:

One big 8O !

This must be the most complete ableton controller i have ever used. The sheer amount of functions you have access to is beaten not even by push nor any other device i know. The templates are dope, connecting is a breeze.

I have pull for lemur as well which i like, but touchables device templates are a much more integrated solution. I love the way this is going.

Only thing missing in my eyes is drum rack sub channel control, but this problem seems to be on abletons side if i understand correctly.

Now if those templates would come for ni, sugar bytes, korg... :roll: one can dream no?

The feature I am looking for in all ipad apps is: drum rack mixer contro. No one offers it, and I can't understand why since mixing drums is essential and no other controller provides it. I would get any app that did this.

@Le k : Adjust your signature image please, it's way to big for the forum.

im pretty sure touchable does this - at least in v2 it was easy to open up a group or drum rack and adjust individual track volumes .. just tap on the track name up top.

Possible Bug:

I was looking at the Collison instrument and when I switch between Resonator1 and Resonator2 tabs and try to adjust the X/Y pad controls, sometimes either the X or the Y values don't change when I move the "ball" or neither of them work. Can't reliably reproduce the behvior...meaning, i can't make it do just x or y or both, but it does happen randomly.
