If you're looking for a free iPad touch mixer for Ableton Live which includes a Lemur template and Max for Live device and is FREE, then DSRT Sound's LTC-1 is for you.  

The LTC-1 is a touch based mixer focused on controlling up to 16 tracks inside Ableton Live. The interface offers a flexible and intuitive way for adjusting volume, pan and sends 1-4 along with the ability to mute, arm and solo a selected track. The LTC-1 provides two views, single and multitrack, giving you the right level of control for the situation.
