Conductr arrives!

CONDUCTR is the first Ableton Live controller for iPad SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR LIVE PERFORMANCE: a whole new concept, based on functionality, adaptability and intuitivity.
CONDUCTR is ERGONOMIC (4 different view modes: you only see what you want to see), MODULAR (you can create as many User Modules as you want), EXPANDABLE (upcoming System Modules to customize it to the max) and SMART (it takes maximum advantage of multitouch technology: you can even play it without watching the iPad).

CONDUCTR’s interface is ergonomic: it ADAPTS TO YOUR NEEDS and can be changed up to 4 different view modes at any given time, even while playing live.

CONDUCTR features 3 System Modules (Clips, Mixer and Master) and as many User Modules as you want. You can control up to 5 parameters from any device and any track featured in your Ableton Live set on each User Module.

CONDUCTR IS EXPANDABLE: it will grow within a short time with upcoming new System Modules.

Oh, and you can even play it… WITHOUT WATCHING THE IPAD!

WARNING: CONDUCTR is a software controller. It doesn’t produce any sound by itself.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Ableton Live 8.2.6 or higher.
  • Mac OSX 10.6 or higher / Windows XP or higher.

CONDUCTR WORKS WIRELESS, so you will need to install the Conductr Server software in your computer. Download it for free at conductr.net/downloads.
