Ableton Web Control

Current Version

Ableton Web Control lets you control your instance or instances of Ableton using your browser.



To use this library, you'll need to install and activate the MIDI Remote Script in Ableton.js. To do that, copy the midi-script folder of ableton-js to Ableton's Remote Scripts folder. If you prefer, you can rename it to something like AbletonJS for better identification. The MIDI Remote Scripts folder is usually located at:

  • Windows: {path to Ableton}\Resources\MIDI\Remote Scripts
  • macOS: /Applications/Ableton Live {version}/Contents/App-Resources/MIDI Remote Scripts

After starting Ableton Live, add the script to your list of control surfaces:

Ableton Live Settings

To use the server, you need to have Node.js installed on your system.

Starting the Server

Run npx ableton-web-control and the web server should start. You can now access the web app from any device using your computer's IP address.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
