The factory settings control music and video software products right out of the box and are freely assignable. So any additional device programming isn’t necessary for many applications. The UC3 is also a great extension for your Ableton Live setup. A special control surface script for Ableton Live 8 is enclosed in the package. With that script you can also use two UC3 devices to control up to 16 tracks simultaneously.
