Description: Ever wanted to use a giant Push or Launchpad from within VR? AliveInVR controls Ableton Live allowing you to trigger clips, play instruments and mix with a giant 3D Controllerist interface in VR. Arrange triggers in 3D around yourself and save and load multiple layouts so you can build your own interface!
Review: If you know what an Ableton Push-Pad is you might want to give this VR simulation of one a try. But this is not small-sized music Push-Pad, this is a 6ft tall one! While I suppose does make it much easier to push the buttons at the right times. But there is no game here, no musical tutorial, you will already need to know how to use a standard Ableton MIDI controller before you even boot this app up. It’s not going to be for everyone, but it is a good use of VR I never saw coming. If you think you might use this, just give it a go, but for most of us, this is something to leave on the shelf.
