Apologies for this, there is a problem on MAC OSX with the latest PULL release. If you get in touch with our support on email@example.com we can provide you with a fix until the release is uploaded.
It’s unlikely that Max 6 will function properly with Ableton 9.2 . Recommended to upgrade to the latest Max 7. It works very well with Ableton 9.2, and is free like Max 6.

Yes, implementing PULL in any Lemur template is as easy as copying the PULL container and pasting it into a new page in your Lemur template. PULL would need to be used in “send mode”. You could try in “switch mode”, but you will probably need to delete some of the ableton native device templates, to free up memory (the large template in switch mode uses all the available memory on the Lemur – so there will be none left for your studio bits unless you make space for them by deleting something).
Yes, you can run the large template with monosequencer, but will need to delete a native ableton device template in order to make room for the monosequencer (the large template uses all of the avaialable memory on the lemur). Each template inside the large template is inside a container, which is named after the corresponding device. You might want to delete the “Collision” template, because it’s quite large and not used often. So navigate to the container called “Collision” (which will be inside a numbered tab). e.g.
Delete the whole container called “Collision” and save the large template.
Now you should be able to load the monosequencer and any other large templates. Max Devices and VST will always use send template mode regardless of whether the “switch template” mode is selected or not, but the Ableton native devices should at least use “switch template” mode
If this is still not enough you might need to delete another template – but that should be more than enough.
We might make it so you can design your own templates to be inside the large template soon.
Hope it helps.
Apologies for this, we’ve had a problem with our latest Mac OSX release. I believe we have your email address (having discussed some things before), so I have sent you a fix to this address. Please feel free to come back here or over email, whichever is convenient for you.
It’s pretty straight forward.
Firstly check PULL is working in send mode – the manual deals with the set up of this.
Then import the PULL small_template.jzlib into a new tab. You’ll have two tabs, one for livecontrol and one for PULL.
Hey Syncr, sorry for the slow response. We get most queries through our support email email@example.com and reply a bit quicker there.
PULL uses OSC for most of it’s communication over a network. The only parts that are midi are parts of the impulse and drum instrument templates. We’re looking into sending OSC data as SYSEX information over a MIDI connection, so all of PULL information can be sent over MIDI (which could then use a cable, or midimux, or any midi over network (USB)). However, we’re some way from making this happen at the moment.
From all our tests, Lemur is extremely fast and stable over wifi though. If you record a parameter and look at the resolution you get from the recorded automation you can see there is virtually no dropout, or shakiness, like you get in other controllers over wifi.

Yes, good idea Juan. I’ll add it to the manual now. Many thanks
Glad to be of assistance.
If you enjoy using the software, we would be very grateful if you could share your experience in the form of a review here – http://www.xmonsta.com/product/pull-ipad-ableton-device-editor/#tab-reviews
or in the Ableton forums – https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=205227&start=0

Yes, if you set your IP addresses automatically (through DHCP) and you have various other computers connecting to the router, you’ll find that your IP’s regularly change. We find it’s best to set them manually, there’s also a way to set them by Mac address, but its a bit more complicated. Nevertheless, the above is a good guide should you need it again.
Hope you enjoy it. The real power of PULL is in extending it through templates (for VSTs and Max devices using send mode). You can also build custom max devices to hook into live and be controlled by Lemur easily. You can also integrate PULL as a simple container in other Lemur templates by just copying it in as a tab.
This is unlikely to be a problem with PULL. It is a problem with general Lemur set up, over a network.
1) The ip address/port may not be set correctly in the Lemur settings
2) The ipad should be on the same network as the computer
3) There could be something blocking the communication between ipad/computer (perhaps a firewall).
It is most likely to be number 1.
Here are some example settings:
IP – 192.168.1.3 (your iPad IP address)
PORT – 8004
OSC Host IP – 192.168.1.2 (Computer IP address)
OSC Host PORT – 8004
Here is a test amxd device.
This allows you to test your OSC connection without PULL (taking everything back to bare minimum). If OSC doesnt work with this it definitely wont work with PULL, so best to get your Lemur connection set up first with this.
To use this device:
Put your MAC/Computer IP address in OSC Host setting of Lemur, and put port 8004
On your Lemur:
1) Go to settings > project > create new project
2) Click on the + sign and select “knob” from the dropdown
3) Click the play button that’s to the right of the + sign on your Lemur
4) Play around with the knob.
On your computer:
1) Drag the LemurOscText.amxd device into your Ableton Live Set
There is a message box on the device which says “YOUR OSC WILL BE HERE”, this will change to “Knob.x x.xxxxxx” depending on which object you are moving on the Lemur.
You can also install this ping tool for the iPad https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/network-ping-lite/id289967115?mt=8 which allows you to ping from your iPad to the MAC. Click the ping tab and enter your MAC ip address. This way you can test whether your MAC is responding to the iPad. If it’s not responding then either the iPad is not on the same network as the computer, or there is something blocking the iPad from communicating with the computer (computer or router firewall).
If you’re still having trouble setting Lemur up, it’s best to contact support email, as we will need to transfer various files (screenshots, test devices etc). You’ll need to list out your versions of the following: AbletonLive (9.1.7), Max(6.1.9), OSX, IOS and Lemur
Yes, you’re pretty much there.
This just means that the IP address and/or PORT in your Lemur settings is not correct.
Find the IP address of your computer (the one with Ableton Live/PULL). Put this IP address in your Lemur settings (the cog in the top/right of Lemur).
Then make sure the PORT in the Lemur settings is the same as the port on your AMXD (you can use pretty much any port other than 8000, as long as they’re the same both on the AMXD and in the Lemur settings)
It could also be a firewall issue, so you could try turning your firewall off, if everything is set up correctly.
Happy to help on email or on here – up to you.
Hope it helps
Yes, you don’t need full Max to use this, only Max for Live. They are the same install though (Max 6 or Max 7).
We do have a support email if this is easier – support[at]xmonsta[dot]com
To use Max for Live you just need to install full Max 6.1 or Max 7. Then you go into Ableton preferences>folder>Max Application – and set your Max folder there. You can still use Max for Live, even though Full Max is not licensed (the max for live bit is automatically licensed in ableton)
Install PULL (using the correct installer for your Max/OS versions)
Drag PULL V2.2.amxd into your set. Fill in the IP field with your iPad IP address. Use port 8004
Go into your Lemur settings. In the “OSC 0 host” section, put your computer IP address. In the port put 8004
Click the “large template” button on the AMXD – on your Lemur some buttons on the bottom should load and a blue rectangle can be seen on screen.
Start selecting devices. The templates should flash up on screen and you should have bi-directional feedback on the Lemur.
You shouldnt need to do all this once youve installed PULL. Just save an .adv preset, or save PULL in your default set template, and all your info will be saved – you shouldnt need to reconfigure again. Then all you need to do is click “large template” to use.
There is also “send template” mode which is useful – all info about this is in the manual.
Btw how are you loading the large template on the lemur, is this through the large template button on the amxd? If you cannot send templates to the Lemur (using the AMXD for sending (not the editor)), then I’m wondering how you loaded the large template? It uses the same system, so if one isnt working, none of them are. You’ll need to make sure you have the correct IP address for your iPad input on the amxd device to send templates to the lemur. The Lemur Editor should not be used to load any of the PULL templates.
When you press send template mode, there should be a button that says “small template” press this to load the small template. Now templates will be sent to the lemur. There should be no “external” button. If there is such a button, then it is likely you’re using an old version of PULL.amxd. You will know that you have the small template loaded because there is no blue rectangle on the lemur.
You could try right clicking on top of the AMXD device and then select “open max window” are there any errors in there?
Sending templates should work, its been tested on multiple systems. If it’s not working then it is most likely that PULL is not configured correctly over the network.
If you’re still having problems, it might be worth getting in touch on our support email support[at]xmonsta[dot]com
Are you using the XVAnalogFilter included in the .zip or an old version.
The older version if xvanaloguefilter has the wrong name, so ensure to use the new one included in the zip.
Also have you tried using the camelcrusher vst to check externals are working?
There is no external button or app now, so everything should just work. You may nee to use pull in send template mode however.
