LTC Display – Timecode Reader for Ableton Live

12 ratings

LTC Display decodes the SMPTE timecode and frame rate embedded in an audio track and displays it as it comes in. Just drop the Max for Live device on your timecode track and you‘re good to go.

You can generate LTC audio files using the free ElTeeSee tool:


Works with All Common Frame Rates

The decoder automatically detects 24, 25, and 30, as well as 23.976 and 29.97 FPS signals.

Pop-out Window

Open the timecode in a large floating window to always have it in sight.

Mira Support

Display the timecode on an iPad using the Mira app.

Copy to Clipboard

Easily copy the current timecode to your clipboard and use it in time-related notes or whatever you might need it for.

Timecode Cache

LTC Display caches the timecode it decodes from the audio signal so you can jump back in the arrangement to see previous timecodes without starting playback.

Jump to Timecode

Easily jump to a previously decoded timecode by entering its value.

Integration with AbleSet

By running LTC Display and AbleSet together, you can see the current timecode in your setlist and performance view.
