How to have two monitors?


hi! i want to present the video output on a video projector and monitor it same time on the screen of the laptop. (using the laptop screen as control monitor for the performance.) possible?


We will add support for a second preview window in a future update, but we haven’t planned that feature yet. In the meantime you can use the free Syphon Recorder application ( to create your own preview window. To do so add an eSyphon plug-in to the master track in Ableton and select this Syphon stream in Syphon Recorder. Now you will see the master video output in Syphon Recorder and you can use that as your preview window. I hope this works for you. Below you’ll find the section of the EboSuite manual about Syphon Recorder.


ah, syphon! good idea! thank you!
