In the past I have use my laptop and an APC40 controller to control Ableton Live in my DJ sets.
I upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 and have a newer version of Ableton installed - the upshot is that I cannot get APC40 to work with Ableton (using Isotonik template, which I love).
Anyway, I do use my iPad as a controller for Ableton at the moment at home.
If I was going to play at a festival, do you think the Laptop and iPad are an okay combo to use? A friend suggested it wouldn't 'look as good' to a punter, but in reality the iPad works pretty good as a controller. Not as tactile as the APC40 mind you.
Anyway, any thoughts or opinions?
I will still try to get the APC40 talking to Ableton and Isotonik again, but as a fall back, the iPad could be okay?
