LiveControl 2 Setup (OS X)


  • Download the LiveControl 2 package appropriate for your version of Ableton Live.
  • Right-click (or ctrl-click) on the Ableton Live application and select “Show Package Contents” from the drop-down menu. This will open a new Finder window.
  • Move the LiveControl_2_1_31 folder (or whichever version you downloaded) to Contents/App-Resources/MIDI Remote Scripts.

Lemur Setup

Note: LiveControl 2 works with MIDI, not OSC. That means you can connect over Wi-Fi and use the Lemur Daemon, or you can use a hardware MIDI interface. The example below uses Lemur Daemon, but if you are using a hardware interface simply use the appropriate MIDI ports.

  • Make sure that you have a Lemur connected to your computer (either through hardware or Wi-Fi).
  • Load the LiveControl 2 JZML (found in Applications/LiveControl) to the Lemur app on your iPad (with the Lemur Editor or the App File Sharing window in iTunes). You can save the JZML in the app so you don't need to reload it every time from the computer.
  • Setup the following in Lemur / Settings / More Settings / MIDI Target 0:
    • From: Daemon Output 0
    • To: Daemon Input 0

Ableton Live Setup

  • Start Ableton Live and open the MIDI Sync Preferences in Ableton Live. Setup the following configuration.
  • Control Surface: LiveControl 2 1 31
    • Input: Daemon Input 0
    • Output: Daemon Output 0
  • Input: LiveControl_2_1_31 (Daemon Input 0)
    • Track: On
  • Output: LiveControl_2_1_31 (Daemon Output 0)
    • Sync: On
