The teaser videos from Richie Hawtin's Plastikman gigs were tantalizing to the extreme, but as of yesterday, the Griid Application is available at the iTunes app store.
Griid is an advanced clip grid interface which allows you to control Ableton Live (running on your desktop or laptop) from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. Using specially developed touch objects and simple gestures, Griid is carefully designed with the performance experience in mind.
Finely tuned for rapid navigation, you can enjoy the freedom of playing Live sets of any size with ease.
Explicit visual feedback means that you have all the information you need, quite literally at your fingertips. Combined with wireless operation, this means you can perform with Ableton Live without ever needing to look at the computer screen.
Available in three flavours:
Griid Lite FREE
Griid Lite allows you to try the Griid experience for free to make sure it integrates well with your setup before purchasing.
