Traktor and Ableton Aided By New iPad App Conductr

 

Tech-savvy DJs and producers who use Traktor and Ableton software to make music will no doubt be happy to hear that an iPad app has just launched that lets you control both, saving the need to buy expensive extra hardware.

Conductr is based around an innovative ‘modular’ system, meaning that you can configure it to suit your own DJ set or production needs – whether that’s triggering samples, using loops, creating custom effects racks, monitoring cues, or any other element of the software.

Users of Ableton are also able to use Conductr as a drum pad and keyboard, adding an extra dimension to the app’s abilities.

DMC world champion DJ D.Beam has been putting Conductr through its paces in the video below, adding ‘Conductr has everything a DJ needs. It’s like having Traktor at your fingertips without having to be confined to the computer’.

Other artists who are dedicated Conductr converts include alt-rockers Kodaline (5.9 million scrobbles), Spanish techno producer Dosem (104k scrobbles) and serial remixers RAC (180k listeners).

The basic version of Conductr is free to try out with extra modules available for a fee. Check it out on the App Store here.
