Lié: System Requirements and Supported Digital Audio Workstations

System Requirements

Touché's companion app "Lié" is available as standalone application, and as a VST2 and AU plug-in only. You need a 64-bit host application supporting VST or AU plug-ins to host Lié as a plug-in.

macOS

  • macOS 10.10. until 10.14, 64bit
  • Intel Core i5 1.4GHz for Lié itself, (Intel Core i5 2.5GHz if using the UVI-based factory sounds)
  • 4GB of RAM (8GB recommended)
  • 1GB free space on HDD/SSD (if using UVI-based factory sounds)

Windows

  • Windows 10, 64bit
  • Intel Core Duo for Lié itself, (Intel Core i5 2.5GHz if using the UVI-based factory sounds)
  • 4GB of RAM (8GB recommended)
  • 1GB free space on HDD/SSD (if using UVI-based factory sounds)

Copy protection notice:

Lié itself has no copy protection. Our factory sounds are all based on UVI Workstation however. UVI uses PACE iLok for anti-piracy purposes. You don't need an actual iLok dongle, since its license is directly activated on your computer. The free iLok License Manager is recommended for comfortably managing one's licenses. It will also allow for activation of additional sound expansions or instruments you might want to acquire in the future (e.g. our Arché Collection). iLok License Manager is included in the Lié Windows installer, but is an optional download for Mac users.

Beta-supported DAWs (Windows 10)

Steinberg Cubase 7 and Nuendo 7 and higher (only Windows)

Stuck note problem on Windows on some machines: Occasionally, applying more complex gestures on Touché leads to a stuck, endless note in Lié in Steinberg's DAW. We are currently working on resolving this issue (status of June 2019).

Known Issues

MOTU Digital Performer (only Windows)

Not compatible on Windows: Since Lié as VST fails the Scan routine in Digital Performer, there is no way to make Lié work in DP in Windows for the time being. In a Mac environment, you can use Lié as AU instead. 

Native Instruments Maschine 2 VST

Not compatible: Maschine, when used as a VST inside a DAW, instead of being used as a standalone application, has trouble coping with the amount of MIDI CC needed for truthfully transmitting gestures from Touché (SE) to Lié. Random CCs disturbing the performance are the result. We currently seek to address the issue with help of Native Instruments (status of June 2019).

Native Instruments Maschine 2 Standalone and AU

Automation issues: Some customers face problems when recording automation from Touché (SE) when Lié is hosted in Maschine 2 Standalone or AU. Maschine 2 seems to have trouble coping with the amount of MIDI CC being sent by Touché (SE). We currently seek to address the issue with help of Native Instruments (status of June 2019).

Unsupported DAWs

Avid ProTools

Not compatible: We don't offer an AAX version of Lié for the moment, so ProTools is not supported. That being said, some of our customers successfully use Blue Cat's PatchWork or Vienna Ensemble Pro as a workaround.

Propellerhead Reason

Not compatible: Reason uses a special way to communicate with external MIDI devices that renders it unusable with our companion app Lié. Unfortunately, we don't see a workaround being offered any time soon.

Additional Notes

Lié is not tested in non-listed DAWs, but it could work. We cannot guarantee a solution for issues in unsupported DAWs or DAWs with known issues.
