MIDI Link Sync 1.0.14 is here

MIDI Link Sync is updated. The guys from Coding Cod keep the updates coming on this app. Only 7 days since the last update!

Here’s what’s new …

▪ MIDI » Ableton Link ▪

Responsiveness to incoming tempo changes has been vastly improved. This means that variations in the incoming MIDI tempo will be picked up much faster and the Link timeline will come into sync much faster, too.

▪ Ableton Link » MIDI ▪

The moment you press Start MIDI Clock, it will start sending out MIDI clock ticks. Then it will send out MIDI start when the timeline wraps around. This allows apps such as Samplr to get a head’s up as to what the tempo will be when the timeline actually starts. We’ve noticed that this helps some apps to respond better.

MIDI Link Sync 1.0.11

MIDI Link Sync gets some nice little updates. Here’s what’s new:

Tap » Ableton Link

Tap out a rhythm and MIDI Link Sync will attempt to bring your Ableton Link timeline into sync with both your tempo and downbeat.

Improved MIDI » Ableton Link

Support for Song Position and MIDI continue messages means that in apps such as Cubasis, you can now start anywhere on the timeline and MIDI Link Sync will bring the Ableton Link timeline into sync. Previously you had to start at the beginning of the timeline.

Bug fixes:

  • Improved using MIDI » Link with network MIDI
  • Improved accuracy of MIDI beat detection
  • Fixed problem receiving MIDI clock from Cubasis
  • Better support for multi-part start/stop messages (e.g. DJ Player)

After a not very long wait, it arrives! MIDI Link Sync!

Here are the details:

Want to use your favourite MIDI-only apps and hardware with Ableton Link? MIDI Link Sync provides an experimental tool that bridges the two.

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.

2 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.

In this mode, the outgoing MIDI clock is able to follow the Ableton Link timeline reasonably accurately. However, we’ve noticed that quite a few apps don’t follow the incoming MIDI clock with the same accuracy.

▪ 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.

Ableton Link peers are able to propose new tempos to take effect at a specific point in time. We’ve combined this ability with some control theory so that MIDI Link Sync can massage the Link timeline into phase with the MIDI timeline. As a result, there are a few factors that can affect the overall accuracy: the most important being the quality of the incoming MIDI clock.
