Add a new level of control to Ableton Live with Transport Control. Drop the plugin into an empty MIDI track in Live for instant on-screen access to 25 core features via three floating toolbars. Along with covering most of the playback controls of Live, Transport Control also adds new buttons for pause, fast forward/rewind, and loop start/end. Customize your workflow even further with the built-in MIDI mapping system that lets you trigger any toolbar button with MIDI hardware.
- Adds two floating toolbars to Ableton Live
- Includes new controls for Pause, FF/RW, and Loop Start/End
- Map any toolbar button to MIDI hardware button or key
Two floating toolbars form the core of Transport Control. These toolbars control playback features. The first of these, the Transport toolbar, packs a lot into a small space, combining the usual playback controls with new ones. New dedicated buttons for pause, fast forward, and rewind have all been designed to be flexible and effective with the goal of speeding up your workflow.
The Location toolbar offers further control over the deeper features of Live. Buttons for Looping, Cue Points, and Quantize are all organized in a compact area for quick access. New controls for punching in loop start and end points on-the-fly add even more flexibility.
The floating toolbars are only half of the equation of Transport Control. A custom designed MIDI mapping system lets you quickly and easily map any hardware MIDI trigger to any button on the toolbars. This MIDI mapping bypasses Ableton’s built-in system to go beyond previous limitations of Live.
Take a look below at an example of an off-the-shelf MIDI controller mapped to Transport Control. This is just one of the infinite ways you can use Transport Control with low-cost MIDI hardware to bring a new level of control to Live.
Through a combination of floating toolbars and MIDI mapping, Transport Control brings a serious amount of customizability to Live. With this new access to core features and brand new ones, it’s time to start using Live the way that works best for you.
