Introduction

Conductr is a modular environment where you can add the modules you want in order to control Ableton Live or Traktor.

Every artist is unique, so their tools should be as well. That’s why Conductr is an app that musicians and DJs alike can design according to their specific needs.

Conductr is designed to provide artists with a different kind of experience: one that makes sense on an iPad. It is not about mimicking hardware or desktop software on the iPad, but to offer a 100% mobile-oriented user experience.

Conductr is a freemium app. What you download for free is a trial version with limited features. Purchase the Premium modules you want for unlimited use.

REMINDER: Conductr is a software controller. It doesn’t produce any sound by itself.

We hope you enjoy using Conductr as much as we enjoy developing it.

Thank you for choosing Conductr!
