Mixer is a controller that places Ableton Live’s “Mixer” into Liine Lemur for the iPad. The MaxForLive device runs concurrently with a Lemur template. This allows the template to automatically set itself to any project, and it makes it completely dynamic to any changes that happen inside the DAW. Data communication is accomplished with CNMAT’s Open Sound Control protocol.

Please note that this is an ongoing project, and it will remain in beta indefinitely.
