Watch a Demonstration of Ableton’s Link Technology

Posted by on | No comments

Italian DJ/producer John Type has demonstrated Ableton Link in a creative video.

Released nearly two years ago, Link is a wireless technology that keeps music devices in time over a local network. It enables DJs, producers, and musicians to sync together via Link-enabled DVS software such as Serato DJ and Ableton Live and DAWs like Ableton Live, Maschine, and Reason.

John mixes four tracks in the video, going back and forth from Serato DJ and Ableton Live. He drastically changes the tempos to show how Link keeps everything synced.

According to his website, he used cue point mapping and “miditablism” techniques in the demonstration. Miditablism is a style that combines classic turntablism with modern DJ tools.

The files he used in the demo are available for free on his website. He has also included a detailed breakdown of how he did it.
