I Just got an iPad and TouchOSC and for 3 days solid now I've been trying to get LiveControl working with Ableton with no luck at all. I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit using Ableton Live 8.2.5. I've read countless threads and watched loads of vids but can't seem to get past one major stumbling block which is stopping me from finishing the setup.
I can get the ipad and PC connected together with downloading templates through TouchOSC Editor onto ipad and the ipad comes up in LiveControl when TouchOSC is open, but the LiveControl 1 & 2 option on the MIDI port isnt coming up in LiveControl or the LiveControl MIDI In / Out within Ableton. I've installed the script OK so it's showing up as a Control Surface in Ableton (red box appears after selecting LiveControl TO) but can't get Ableton to receive the MIDI. I've tried both MidiYoke and loopMIDI to solve the problem by setting up a virtual MIDI connection and selected their ports respectively in LiveControl and Ableton. The end result is the same, Ableton just won't receive the data and the ipad doesn't display track / clip info etc.
I'm pretty sure it's not to do with the wifi connection as I've tried it using TouchOSC with PureData and the MIDI data is being received by Ableton fine when using with MidiYoke or loopMIDI. LiveControl seems to be installed correctly as it's coming up as a Control Surface OK so I can't get my head around why LiveControl won't appear as a MIDI option in LiveControl or Ableton.
I've tried different ingoing / outgoing ports in TouchOSC following the video, and other port configurations which have been suggested. There's a lot of conflicting information out there though and little support for win 7 64bit. Firewall or Skype isn't a issue either.
If anyone could shed some light I'd really appreciate it and apologies if I've left any important info out, I'm a noob and a bit out of my depth so grateful for any help to get this solved.
