Ableton Live now Links to iOS apps thanks to v9.6 update

Ableton's new wireless syncing technology, Link, has now made it into the company's DAW as part of the Live 9.6 update.

Link enables you to synchronise the beat, phase, and tempo of Live and Link-enabled iOS apps over a wireless or ethernet connection. Although it's something that's been featured in a select number of iOS apps for a little while now, wireless linking between Live projects and your mobile apps removes any potential MIDI setup headaches in your studio.

The list of compatible apps continues to grow, and already includes the likes of Audiobus, Korg Gadget for iPad and iMPC Pro. The full list can be found on the Ableton website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
