Multi-Monitor Support in Ableton Live via Max For Live Devices

Did you ever want the possibility to detach the Session View mixer in Live so you don't have to toggle between the views anymore? Well, you can now, provided you also have Max for Live.

Eric Ameres has created a set of three Max for Live devices. One allows you to have the mixer from Session View as a floating window so you can have it open while in Arrangement View. The others offer the Session View grid and device controller as floating windows. Ideal for everyone who wants to work with Live on multiple monitors. Have a look:

You can get all three for $9 (or more to show your support). They work with Live 8 and 9.

This way for heaps more Max for Live devices & tips.
