Reason, Serato DJ and Max all add Link - more to come... 14/09/16
Affilliate Links help support the site
Originally part of Ableton Live and a number of iOS apps, Link is now coming to other desktop applications. Here's the Ableton press release with the full details...
Since its release last year, Link has brought musical collaboration using iOS apps to life. By tempo syncing apps over a local network connection, the technology lets musicians forget the hassle of setting up gear and focus on playing together. Originally supported in Ableton Live and a number of iOS apps, now Link is coming to even more electronic instruments.
The news means more musicians using more applications can jump straight into their performance, no matter what they're playing. Trigger effects on an iPad in perfect sync with a Serato DJ set, build visual and other interactive systems in Max and run them in sync with a Live performance. Or get together with others and jam with applications across devices. If you're connected to the same network, Link will keep everything in perfect time.
The list of Link-enabled applications can be found here.
And with Link becoming open source, developers can explore new possibilities for the technology in their own desktop software or mobile apps. The source code has been made available alongside the SDK for iOS – both can be downloaded from Github.
Pricing and Availability: Link comes as a built-in feature of Ableton Live and a growing number of desktop and mobile music applications.
