Patchworks Updates Conductr App To Version 2.0 – Supports Both Traktor & Ableton

Barcelona based Patchworks has updated their Conductr Ableton and Traktor iPad app to version 2.0. Conductr works as an environment within which users can load and build modules to control key elements of their performance. Conductr 1.0 was designed for Ableton Live, but with the second incarnation, we now have support for Traktor.
Conductr Ableton Mixer
Conductr is an app that musicians and DJs alike can design according to their specific needs: it features several different modules to control Ableton Live and Traktor and in-app purchases offer an avenue to acquire more.
Conductr Ableton FX
The Conductr Ableton Live modules are specifically designed to control your Ableton desktop software through a unique, 100% mobile-oriented user experience: no nested menus, no tiny knobs. They are fast and user-friendly. And you can even perform without looking at the iPad using the Gestural Mode. Conductr’s current version features five different Ableton Live control modules: Master, Clips, Mixer, User Modules (including the XY-4D pads) and the Claydr MIDI Keyboard. All of them are available for free as a trial version. You can in-app purchase those you like the most or the full pack.

The Conductr Traktor controller module lets you perform with up to four decks and customize your interface in the fastest and easiest way possible. Each deck features three different view modes to make your djing experience unique: Player, Mixer and FX. Conductr’s current version features one Traktor control module available for free as a trial version. You can in-app purchase it to get unlimited use. Just as the Conductr Ableton Live features have grown and will continue to do so, the Conductr Traktor side will progressively expand with new modules.
