I often get complains when I post about anything that is only for Mac users. Reveal, a touch app designed to efficiently control Ableton Live, is only for Windows 7 and up, no need for additional coding or drivers and works for Live 10 or up. There is no equivalent for Mac or iOS users and it's not planned either.

Regular readers of Sonic Bloom know that I consider knowing shortcuts for all kinds of Ableton Live features essential for the workflow. If you're having a hard time remembering them and you have a 16+ inch full HD touchscreen monitor running Windows 7 or above, then this app should definitely be up your alley. Reveal gives you quick access to to over 150 Live key commands and functions.

Ableton Live shortcuts covered:

  • Show/Hide Views
  • Editing
  • Quantization
  • Insert Tracks/Scene or MIDI Clips
  • File browsing
