New York (June 8, 2012)—Liine and Livid have have created a new Ableton Live “control experience” by linking Griid—an iPad controller for Ableton Live—and Code hardware as a single controller via scripts; the result is a combination of multitouch control and hardware.
The latest Griid update, available in the iTunes App Store, enables a special sync mode with Code. As a result, Griid can be used to navigate Session View and launch clips, or users can tap a header in Griid to select a track in Code; grab knobs in Code to control mixer and effects; and so forth. Four different Code control modes are available: Mixer, EQ, and two for Devices. The update is free to all Griid users.
To kick off Hybrid Control, Liine and Livid are holding a drawing for a Livid Code hardware controller, the Liine Griid app, an iPad, and a one-of-a-kind, handmade case. Entrants send an email on the Liine website for a chance to win the complete Hybrid Control setup; the winner will be drawn from all emails received between June 6 2012 and July 6 2012.
