How To Use Ableton Link to Connect Our App to Ableton Live

You can connect one or more iOS devices to your Ableton Live via Ableton Link. This way you can send / receive signals and use your Soundbrenner Pulse or Metronome app synchronized with Ableton Live.

Ableton Link offers a solution for Windows and Mac users who would like to synchronize their Soundbrenner Pulse with Ableton Live and any Ableton Link enabled app!

Here is the list of compatible apps:

This is how to set up Ableton Link:

On your computer:

1. Make sure that your computer and iOS device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

2. Make sure that your Ableton Live version is 9.6 or higher. 

3. Make sure that your computer runs Windows 7 or higher / Mac OS X 10.7.5 or higher.

4. Go to Ableton Live Preferences -> Link / MIDI tab and make sure your Link Toggle is set to "Show" 

5. Your Link Toggle will appear on your Ableton Link's control bar. 

On your mobile device:

1. Go to your App Settings and turn Ableton Link "On" 

2. When you enable your Ableton Link, you will receive a notification on your mobile device showing that you have successfully established a connection between your Ableton Live and iOS device. 

3. When your iOS device and Ableton Live are linked, you will see track status display (black and yellow dots) under your accents. This is the indicator of the beat status. Just as any Ableton Clip would do, when you press play on your metronome, it will start playing from the next downbeat according to the Ableton Live. 

4. Success! The Metronome by Soundbrenner and your Soundbrenner Pulse are now in perfect sync with Ableton Live!
