Reducing Touch Sensitivity with Ableton on Windows

When using touch with Ableton Live you may experience the controls move from min to max while adjusting them.  

To correct for this issue you can create an options.txt file. Then put the file in the Ableton preferences folder (which on Windows 8 is in “Users – your name – AppData – Roaming – Ableton – Live 9 – Preferences”)

You’ll need to turn on viewing hidden files and file extensions to view the folders and files. Then add the line “-AbsoluteMouseMode” and save it.

Now it should respond to touch more smoothly.

Doing this may affect some other controls when fine tuning using the CTRL key.
