Coding Cod has released MIDI Link Sync – a free iOS app that lets you use your MIDI only apps and hardware with Ableton Link.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
In the future we imagine most apps will support Ableton Link natively, but there’ll still be plenty of MIDI hardware that doesn’t.
Bridging MIDI and Link will never take the place of native support, but it in some setups it can work surprisingly well.
Either way we hope MIDI Link Sync provides a fun, interesting and (sometimes?!) useful tool.
MIDI Link Sync offers two modes of operation:
- Ableton Link » MIDI – Makes Ableton Link act as a MIDI master by producing a MIDI clock that is in sync with the Ableton Link timeline.
- MIDI » Ableton Link – Makes Ableton Link act as a MIDI slave to an external MIDI clock by manipulating the Ableton Link tempo to keep it in sync.
MIDI Link Sync is a free download at the App Store.
