It's pretty sweet being able to sync apps on the same device with it too.

Had so much fun opening apps, my phone felt like it wanted to incinerate my hand :twisted:
Combined with interapp audio, it gets friggin bonkers.

Also, there is one app dedicated to sending midi clock from Link. So it just gets deeper and deeper !

iKaossilator just warped my brain.

If you hold the loop length on the bottom right, the xy becomes a tempo and loop length control. There are three horizontal strips. Center is normal tempo, from left (short looping) to right (long looping). Top horizontal row is double tempo, bottom is half.

I had something probably half dnb tempo. And played with that speed thing and it went completely frantic. But what impressed me most was that iElectribe on an entirely different device had no problem tagging along to my abrupt tempo changes!

This really is a Christmas miracle

I hope that someone makes an app which allows you to draw a Link tempo timeline.

And you can do it blank, or draw it over an audio track. Do it'd essentially be like 'warping', except it warps all other devices to that audio track.

Then you could do auto-synced remixes on the fly.

Maybe take it a step further and allow that audio to be stretched/retuned, and allow it to do more than one track. But I'd be happy with the first part alone!

I'd be able to load up any track from my iTunes and do an instant remix. Not just Traktor/Djay style, but synced synths and drum machines. !!

One nice thing is that Audiobus has a global start stop button for all Link enabled apps too, much easier to get them all playing on the 1 that way.
