    Default Controller for Ableton Effects

    I am currently using a Traktor S4 but I'm considering incorportating ableton's effects into my setup. What would be a good controller to use for this purpose?

    Behringer's BCR2000 or BCF2000. Plenty of knobs/faders. There's also Faderfox's collection of micromodul controllers, one might be for you. If you can afford a lot more there's Vestax's VCM-600. Livid Instruments has a few controllers you could be interested in, but they're rather expensive.

    Edit: Linkssssss.

    You could get an APC40 which by default is pretty good to control Ableton’s effects and you can also set the Clip Launch section to trigger dummy clips that trigger effects patterns, so you would have tons of controls over a variety of effects.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have also been thinking about using my iphone to control ableton effects. Can this be done effectively? maybe with an XY pad in touch osc? Does anybody know of any good touch osc templates for this?

    ye can do that mate ye, but trust me, touchOSC on an iphone is far to fidly. youll end up just sliding your phone around the table. its not practical. if i was you id get a cheap UC-33e

    I have a silicone case for my iPod. It rests on my laptop when in use. I'm sure there are silicone cases for iPhones.
