Be aware that touchAble.app is a windowless application!
touchAble only puts a small icon in the right side of the menubar.
Click the touchAble-icon in the menubar
Click "Install Script" or hit "Shift-Command-R"
The Installation-Dialog pops up
Click on the triangle and the dialog shows you your instances of Live
Select the version of Live you want the scripts install into.
Congratulation! The scripts are installed in Ableton Live
Next step: Configuration of Live's Preferences
Fourth Step: Configuration of Live's Preferences
Open the version of Ableton Live you installed the scripts into
Open Live's preferences
Select "touchAble" as your "Control Surface"
Set the "Input" to "touchAble Script Input", leave "Output" alone
In the "Midi Ports"-section activate "Track" and "Remote" for "touchAble" and
deactivate "Track", "Sync" and "Remote" for "touchAble Input (touchAble Script Input)"
If your Preferences look like the image above, you are good to go
Quit Ableton Live and re-open it
Congratulation! Ableton Live is configured correctly
Next step: Configure touchAble Pro on your mobile device
Fifth Step: Configuration of touchAble Pro
on your mobile device
Open touchAble Pro on your mobile device
If you open touchAble Pro for the first time on your mobile device,
the touchAble Pro icon will pop up and fade into the opening-screen.
Click the connection-icon (in the screenshot red)
in the main bar on top to see the connection-status
The color of the connection-icon is "red"
as long as touchAble doesn't find any server,
it changes to "white" when servers are found.
The moment touchAble is connected to Live
the icon changes to a blue wifi-beam icon
The dialog shows all servers touchAble can connect to.
In our example there are two servers available.
For each server the dialog shows the name of the computer, the version of Live ,
the version of the server-software and the version of the installed scripts.
In our example, the server "Peters-MacBook-Pro" shows
Live 10.0.3, server-software version 412 and script-version 412 correctly installed.
The server "Olivers-MacBook-Pro" shows that Ableton Live is not running.
You have to start Live before you can connect to this server.
Click on the server-information for the server you want to connect to.
touchAble will connect to the chosen server.
Congratulations, touchAble Pro on your Mobile Device
is now connected to your Ableton Live
You want to know how many connections from different
instances of "touchAble Pro" to your Ableton Live are running?
Just click the touchAble-Pro-server-icon in the menubar and you will see.
In the connection-dialog, problems that would hinder touchAble
to connect to a specific server are shown in RED in the information for that server.
The information "Control Surface not responding"
while Ableton Live is up and running may
indicate problems with your script-installation.
Please check and reinstall the scripts if necessary.
