About this app

ATTENTION: LK is a controller application and it doesn't produce sound. If you are looking for a playable app on your mobile, search for DRC instead.

LK is a sophisticated remote controller application for music software and hardware, featuring a tight integration with Ableton Live. Easy customisation with 4 independent modules, intuitive use, creative tools and ways to control or compose makes LK a powerful companion for any electronic musician.

See what’s inside:

- Control almost every aspect on Ableton Live, from composition to automation, clips, tracks, devices and much more with MATRIX.

- Get the MPC feel on your touchscreen with MIDI PADS, featuring an arpeggiator and chorder. This module works in two modes: Ableton Live and MIDI mode. When working in Ableton Live mode it automatically maps drum rack pads names to each pad on the app. You will never miss a pad again.

- Extensive control through 128 parameters with MIDI Controller. Just like MIDI PADS, this module works in either MIDI or Ableton Live mode. Forget the old school MIDI mapping. In Ableton Live mode, with the learn function you just need to choose assign and change the parameter… ready to rock!

- Three dimensional parameter tweaking with X/Y PAD. Just like MIDI PADS and MIDI CONTROLLER this module also works in either MIDI or Ableton Live mode making it to assign parameters on the fly with the learn function.

- Play chords like you have nevel played before with the CHORDER module. Just like the other modules, it works in Live or MIDI mode. Use the chorder generator to build your chords and lay them out according to your needs.

- Keyboard module serves as a Live or MIDI enhanced keyboard controller with 3-axis expression capabilities. It is fully customisable to scale and keyboard range. It also allows the possibility of mapping any Live or MIDI CC parameters to be controlled by the position you play in each of the keys of the keyboard thus providing additional expression to the performance of each note.

The ability to connect USB MIDI interfaces allows you to interact with external gear at the same time you control Ableton Live since you can switch modes on the fly at any time.

To connect LK to your host computer you will need to download and install a software utility called UBRIDGE on your computer. It is available for Windows and OSX.

Thank you for responding. Please update your documentation as this is working as you described. Still have problems with disconnects, and would think adding a scale mode for the pads would be a nice interface ill add a star to the review as it could be useful for some people. Read the manual and purchased modules, but sadly major issues persist. You are not able to scroll the piano roll making it quite useless. Yes you can navigate it, but not move up and down the scale to different pitches. How can this be left out? The guide references tools that are not present, like they pen key and metronome, and vague descriptions of items that are not in the same position as the interface pictured just makes it more confusing. Buggy communications loosing, wired connection is just bad. You have to leave ableton mode to get the device list sometimes. Very simple interface limitations exist, no scale mode at this point is just a fail. Overall I know we dont exactly have many choices, but this one will just frustrate you and cost you money better spent on vsts.

James, you keep mentioning the scale mode. What do you mean by that? And again, you can't scroll the keyboard pitches up and down? Really? Do we need to make you a video? Yes, we definitely need to! Regards

It's functionality was intermittent, would lose connection randomly and occasionally not show up in Live, using the same settings. I stopped using based on poor functionality. One star rating for bad programming, even with "let LK run in the background" unchecked, it always runs in the background and gives me alerts when I've accidentally launched. GREAT JOB! That alone is worth removing it from my phone and life.

Looked promising, but ultimately is disappointing. Setup is a pain, so much so that I ran out of demo time (a feature that wasn't made clear before downloading or upon first opening) to use the module I was testing before I had a chance to run the controller through its paces. Could not get USB connection working, so latency was also a major issue. Not really excited to pay to unlock each module separately either, even if everything worked smoothly. I'll just save up for hardware, thanks.
