TouchAble 1.2 released -new Module: multi-dots XY PAD

Post by rabouille » Sat Apr 23, 2011 10:47 am

As our main thread might be a bit too big and confusing for newbies, we open a new one...

We are really happy to announce that the new touchAble 1.2 is version available.
http://www.itunes.com/app/touchable

the new 1.2 version include an Advanced multi dots XY pad with:

-Up to 4 Dots at once - each with their own X, Y & Z Parameters.
-Choose the dots X, Y & Z Parameters from All of Lives Mixer & Device.
-Easy parameter assignments through the config menu.
-Set direction & force of gravity and bouncing mode individually for each dot.
-Record the dots movements - loop, reverse or cut them till they fit your needs.
-Play them back as automations - quantized and in complete sync with Ableton Live.
-Save automations and parameter assignments to the database within touchAble and exchange them with other iPads and Users via iTunes.
-Save snapshots of the dots positions:
Hold, Stop & Morphing mode
-Set morphing length & which of the are dots affected by snapshots.

TouchAble 1.2 also offers plenty of new features and improvements:

Device Module:
The Control elements on the FX8 & FX32 View now switch their behavior & style depending on the parameter they control.
Possible styles are: Toggle, Multitoggle, Fader & centered Fader.
This will work with Lives devices & all M4L Devices.

Added 'Snap' mode:
You can activate the Snap mode per device with the 'snap' button in the Menu to the right.
If enabled, the control elements will snap back to their original value once you lift your finger.
To change the original value of the parameters: disable Snap mode - tweak the device to your needs and enable Snap mode again to jump back to these values at the end of your touches.

New optional settings:

Added Relative Fader mode for devices
Added possibility to disable scene launch buttons.
Added OneTap Recording:
Newly recorded clips will automatically be of the same length as the currently set Launch Quantization. This enables you to tap on an empty slot once to start recording and have it loop automatically after the set amount of time.

General:

Decreased latency and increased throughput to Live substantially.
Performance increased throughout the app.

Guys this is incredible, way to step it up!

The new X/Y interface with physics is just the kind of thing I bought my iPad for. Smashing!

Excellent update !

The automation waves are not showing up in my 4 channels of the XY pad.
I have copied the setup midi routing but no luck with them.
I can record automation in the bottom but cannot get any action in the 1-4 channels and play/loop the automation.

Windows7 updated all software - Any advice?

After recording a mouvement, choose where do you wanna start the automation by scrolling the graph, set the length (length button) then use assign button and choose wish dot you want to be affected. Then you 'll be able to playback it.

Manual and tutorial video are coming.

Do you have to uninstall the previous version's server or will 1.2 install on top of it just by running the executable?

Thanks for that that works great so far! How do I get it working in playback mode?
The automation wave/data is loaded but it does not playback when the play button is triggered.
I have tried different combos of looping modes also.

And I gotta say this is a killer workflow tool... major major update addressing automation.
Is it saving the automation in the liveclip or in TAble?

Thanks for your help

Cheers

All this amazing stuff makes me change my mind about an iPad.
Being $$$ always a constraint, is your family of apps working on older iPad1?
Any advantage about getting iPad2? The current offering in retailer's shops is 379 Euros for iPad1 16GB (enough I guess for this) and 100 Euro more for iPad2...
What's your strategic direction as developers?
