Ableton Link... Thoughts? Projects?

Anyone get this today and start messing around with it?

I busted out my two old iPhone 4s' and my iPad and started messing around with iElectribe running through my filter bank and into Live.

Just got the apps Patterning and iMPC to fuck with.. needless to say I'll be dead at work tomorrow

I'm interested in the iMPC's ability to record loops and slice them to pads on the fly instantly via microphone or line input... that ran into some effects,, neat stuff

looking forward to improvements or third party vst/apps that might have ability to send MIDI would be cool

Re: Ableton Link... Thoughts? Projects?

One thing I dont like right off, is that there is no start/stop ability... So hitting stop in live cant stop the "linked" devices and visa versa.

I get why you wouldnt want this active always, but it would be nice to be able to select a "master" device that would be able to start/stop the whole project

Re: Ableton Link... Thoughts? Projects?

That's strange! I was using patterning and gadget in audiobus with link and I was using audiobus as the master

Re: Ableton Link... Thoughts? Projects?

And when stopping audiobus it stopped Ableton too? Or like when you stopped Ableton the "linked" apps stopped too?

Cuz I couldn't get that to happen.

In the demo videos for link, it does say "stop any app, while all others keep playing" or something like that. So I figured, it can't send stop and play commands

Re: Ableton Link... Thoughts? Projects?

Nah I was just using apps, no live yet, but all the apps started and stopped at the same time
Seems like another thing on the iPad that isn't quite there yet maybe?

Oh but link to midi is appealing so I can run gadget along my mpc and sample that, that might end up being how I go about it! At least that's my thought process right now.

Re: Ableton Link... Thoughts? Projects?

currently I have my iPad going through a sherman filter bank and I have a little Alesis 18bit reverb for fun.. dusted off my old vcd and recording into tape then back into ableton for digital to analog to tape to digital weirdness..

I looked into Link for MIDI and didnt see it benefiting my workflow

But I really wanna send MIDI from my iPad easily into my mac, wirelessly via link would be super
