AppBC has released version 3 of its TouchAble remote control iOS apps for the Ableton Live DAW.
TouchAble 3 adds a long list of mayor changes, the first being external, for it’s a new invisible Server that doesn’t use Java anymore and is permanently running in the background.
The other important news is the ability to connect the app via a single USB cable.
