Open Source Project Brings Ableton Link To Modular Synths

Developer Vincenzo Pacella has shared an open-source project to bring Ableton Link to modular synthesizers.

The project, pink-0, is a hardware shield for the Raspberry Pi Zero board and software and scripts for the Zero to provide real-time conversion from Ableton Link to modular-friendly clock and reset signals.

The user interface offers the possibility to change the tempo (affecting all of the participants), the loop length and the clock multiplier.

Here’s a demo of the pink-0 in action:

In the demo, pink-0 is sending clock and reset to DinSync Modseq. The clock signal is also sent to an SSSR Labs Divider and used as trigger for a Mutable Instruments Peaks.

The pink-0 is not currently a commercial product, but is shared as an open source project via GitHub.

  1. raspberry pi is going to really change the world at the rate it is going

    just saying that after i saw the “Steve Jobs” movie and in end where he talks about how a bicycle can make a human more efficient and what the computer could do for man.
    I have to ask “how many can you help at 2000 bucks a pop???”
