Ableton Live export comes to an SDK, plus Triqtraq, Patterning

So, this just happened – Ableton quietly announced an SDK for working with file export. That follows up the company’s wildly popular Ableton Link platform for sync and jamming, which is available both as an open source project and as a mobile and desktop SDK. Novation’s Blocs Wave uses this export functionality, as mentioned today here on CDM. But it’s got company. Here is Ableton’s official video explaining what’s happening: Ben from Patterning and Sebastian from Triqtraq join Martin from Ableton to show this off.

FL Studio Mobile, Now Available on iPhone, iPad; Sampling, Android Support to Come

FL Studio Mobile, previously announced for iOS, is now available for iPhone, iPod touch, and, in an “HD” edition, on iPad 1 and 2. The biggest feature: if you’re an FL Studio user, you can take your projects and load them on the mobile version for on-the-go editing.
