Ableton 9.6 & The Link Factor [Video]

Ableton Live 9.6 has recently been released, and a nice feature that was announced earlier has finally arrived. I am talking about Link. For those that do not know what it is: “It’s a technology that lets you play electronic instruments together effortlessly. Link synchronizes beat, phase and tempo of Live and Link-enabled iOS apps over a wireless or ethernet connection, which means you can use it to play together with others and make music using a range of devices.”

Ableton Live 9.6 has recently been released, and a nice feature that was announced earlier has finally arrived. I am talking about Link. For those that do not know what it is:

This has interesting applications in the DJ and electronic realm. Syncing of a wide range of software could not easier than now thanks to this new feature. Although it is mostly supported for IOS apps at the moment, I would think that Serato, Native Instruments and even Rekordbox might be part of the software that this could benefit from as well. The immediate implications that I can think of are recording of scratches, or tone plays in realtime and in sync, or the simple idea of creating live remixes on the spot.

Of course all this could be thing that companies could be working on as we speak but it is to be seen.
