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.
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.
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).
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.
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).
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).
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.
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.
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.
