LK - Live Controller, iPad and Android Controller for Ableton & MIDI Hardware

The app formerly known as LivKontrol has been renamed and re-designed from the ground up with innovative new features for controlling Ableton Live AND MIDI hardware from an iOS or Android tablet.  

09 March, 2015'" LK - Live Controller (formerly know as LIVKONTROL) is a tool dedicated to electronic musicians in live-act or studio performances. It was built from scratch to provide a consistent experience and appearance across iOS and Android, while keeping usability and easiness in mind.

At its core, LK is a general purpose wired/wireless MIDI controller featuring a tight integration with the industry standard digital audio workstation Ableton Live. It is composed of four different modules: MATRIX, MIDI PADS, MIDI CONTROLLER and X/Y PAD.

  • MATRIX is a dedicated Ableton Live controller module with clip launching and editing abilities, device browsing and mixer abilities, packed into an elegant and highly intuitive user interface.
  • MIDI PADS provides a set of 16 MPC style pads for instrument playing while featuring an arpeggiator, chorder and radial velocity control.
  • MIDI CONTROLLER adds general parameter control over four pages of thirty two screen controls each.
  • X/Y PAD is an elegant X/Y controller featuring LFO modulation for X and Y axis, as well as a special ASR envelope generator for the Z axis.

Besides its full integration with Ableton Live, LK can also be used to control your favorite piece of gear via wired MIDI, while remotely controlling your Live set remotely.
