AliveInVR Lets You Control Ableton Live In Virtual Reality
Check out AliveInVR, a virtual reality controller for Ableton Live that allows you to control the world of parameters within Ableton Live. It also provides multi-user collaborative features with low latency ASIO driver integration.
The parts of Ableton Live that can be controlled via AliveInVR include:
- Session clips and scenes
- Mixer track levels, sends, panning and record enables
- Realtime triggering of drum racks and instruments
- Step Sequencer
- Continuous controllers and Macros
- Loop record, arrange record and global transport controls
Jim Simons, the creator of AliveInVR, describes in detail the new multiplayer functionality introduced in AliveinVR, stating:
The ability to collaborate/perform or spectate with multiple people in VR. Anyone can join in with ‘near realtime’ control such as trigging clips/scenes, XYZ parameter controls, Step sequencer.
The host of the session can do the low latency stuff in addition (instruments/drum racks).
It works by sharing the session mix between participants using a high quality codec. Lower quality VOIP is used for voice chat to keep the bandwidth down. Audio is routed from Ableton into the app using a custom ASIO driver.
