Link to MIDI = Ableton Link to MIDI Clock Sync.

Link to MIDI connects Ableton Link to musical devices that support MIDI Clock Sync. Simply join a Link session, connect your MIDI device, and that's it. Your MIDI device is now Link-enabled.

Link to Midi features launch quantization, an incredibly stable clock output, and a fine offset control (±250 ms) to perfectly line up the receiving MIDI device's playback.

Link to MIDI is only recommended for use with hardware MIDI devices. Connecting to apps is possible, but may lead to a poor user experience due to software challenges in synchronizing to MIDI Clock. Ableton Link fixes this.

Please contact the developers of your favorite apps and ask them to support Ableton Link.

Essential for iOS musicians

Simple, elegant and incredibly useful. If you're a musician using Link-enabled apps and external MIDI hardware (synths, drum machine, etc), this app and a MIDI USB solution will extend Link to your hardware. The interface is dead-simple and the sync is amazingly tight.

Mind blowing!

Works perfect! I currently use it to sync my Roland Mc505 and Yamaha SU700 to my "link" enabled products. No issues, works 100x better than manual midi syncing. Thanks a lot!

Great but no built in transport follow

Love this app for starting my hardware midi gear, but it has to be manually queued to start in time with audiobus. Would be great if it could be set to receive midi start/stop from audiobus or general link network.
