On June 17th, Richie Hawtin announced the creation of the first in a series of control modules for Ableton Live—Griid—at Sonar International Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art, hosted by Barcelona’s Pulitzer Hotel.  Hawtin explained at the convention that Griid is a touchscreen clip launcher with a playable interface that provides listeners with an expressive and tactile live performance via their iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.  Hawtin—spokesperson, co-developer and first official user of Griid—discussed his first development from the new company "Liine," a group which promises to “redefine the way people interact with sound,” in a 30-minute presentation for Sonar’s Digital Music 2.0/10.

Hawtin then took his show on the road, presenting a full demonstration of the app at the Minus Ghost Space convention, which took place on Saturday, June 19th, at the city’s Miscelanea venue. Hawtin promised that the feel of Griid would be very much in line with users’ everyday experiences with Apple’s iPhone and iPad.  Griid is based around an “advanced clip grid interface,” Hawtin said, which allows users to rapidly navigate their Live sets and fire clips.  Hawtin went on to say that Griid allows live performers (especially DJ's) the ability to navigate large sets, with its multitude of different clips, quickly and efficiently.  Further details are still to come, but Liine has stated that Griid will be available in three versions: Griid Pro for the iPad; Griid for the iPhone and iPod Touch; and Griid Lite which is a free trial version of the product.
