SoundPrism Link Edition has arrived

So today, apart from a bunch of apps that have added Link, we now have a completely new version of SoundPrism that is built for Link. Interesting!


Here’s what to expect in SoundPrism Link Edition …

SoundPrism Link Edition is the newest incarnation of the award winning SoundPrism app. Link Edition integrates flawlessly into the new Ableton Link workflow with a totally redesigned sound engine that syncs with other Link enabled apps.

Play full arrangements of bass, harmony and melody with just one tap – in sync with all other Link enabled apps.


  • Breathtaking multi-timbral sound engine with massive polyphony and great-sounding effects. SoundPrism Link Edition’s sounds are hand-crafted by Swiss sound designer Oliver Imseng to work beautifully with each other.
  • Innovative and improved chord input system: effortlessly play inversions and chord progressions while focusing on your track, not on the music theory behind it.
  • A ribbon controller for live manipulation of the built-in effects – all in sync with other Ableton Link enabled apps.
  • Interactive tutorial system: SoundPrism walks you through its interface and teaches you how to play.
  • Supports Audiobus including state saving.
  • Supports Core MIDI. You can even split bass, chords and melody by routing different MIDI channels to different MIDI enabled apps or devices.


SoundPrism Link Edition is in the app store now priced at $4.99 (£3.99):

EGDR808 Drum Machine HD now has Link too

I said yesterday that I expected that EGDR808 Drum Machine HD (the full version) would get Link support soon, and it has. The update brings a couple of other tweaks too, but the main thing is Link.

And don’t forget to take a look at the ‘Apps Supporting Link‘ page for more apps which have Link.

Link support coming to GlitchBreaks soon

So it appears that GlitchBreaks is getting Ableton’s Link very soon. A new version has been submitted for review. Hopefully it’ll be out in the wild soon.

And don’t forget to take a look at the ‘Apps Supporting Link‘ page for more apps which have Link.

Link is Live in Live (9.6)

A confusing title on purpose really. Just me having fun. But on a serious note. Ableton’s Link technology is going to get really interesting now that it is in the latest production release of Live (version 9.6). I’m expecting lots more apps to incorporate it very soon.

The video’s description is pretty minimal, but then it doesn’t need more does it. It simply says:

“Ableton Link is now available in the latest free update of Live. Watch how Link lets you bring sources of inspiration together in the studio – keeping Live and music-making apps in perfect time.”

You can find out more about Link here, and don’t forget to check out the apps who have integrated Link on the Link Supporting Apps page here.

Another app joins the Link club, EGDR808 Drum Machine free adds Link

I was trying to think of a similar way to describe this, a bit like when we used to say “x app is now on the bus!”, but Link doesn’t really lend itself in the same way.

Anyway, EGDR808 Drum Machine free is now all Link enabled, and, as the title suggests, is free! So I suspect that the full version will be along with link soon enough too.
