You may have already read about the exciting latest news from Ableton. Link is one of them. Link is a new technology developed by Ableton that lets you play in time with multiple iOS devices and multiple instances of Ableton Live music software over a wireless network.
Link will soon be available to Live users as a free update, and as a built-in feature of a growing number of iOS apps.
How does it work?
To set it up, just switch on Link, connect to the same network and start jamming. Anyone can start and stop their part while others keep playing. And anyone can adjust the tempo and the rest will follow. No MIDI cables, no installation.
Elastic Drums developer, Oliver Greschke, was one of a few lucky developers that were allowed to implement an early alpha version of the Link sync software.
He just posted a preview video of Elastic Drums working with Ableton via Link:
According to him “Link will really get a game changer, and I hope it will be a standard in every app and every DAW soon.
My plan is to release an update of Elastic Drums with Link implemented by the end of November.”
