Griid For Ableton Live Now Available

Live Control from your iPad/iPhone      06/08/10

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 WTF?

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.

 Griid  £3.49

Enjoy the same playful and inspiring Griid experience for iPhone and iPod Touch

 

 Griid Pro  £14.99

Perform with an advanced clip grid interface utilising the iPad's premium screen size

nice piece of design, but surely an APC or Launchpad etc is gonna do the job just as well?

Well...impressing app ! There`s an announcement of even a better solution mimicking the GUI of Live even more accurately...although I depreciate Apple not giving the option of LAN hardwiring...

@Sonicstate: The source link is not correct. It's not liine.com but liine.net

@Skeptik: The launchpad/apc's don't show clipnames. You have to look at the screen all the time. Apps like this do.
