Mixvibes Ableton Link Cross Remixlive (8)

Mixvibes adds Ableton Link to everything

It’s fair to say that Mixvibes has fully embraced the joys of Ableton’s Link technology. For those still not in the know, Link allows all manner of devices to wirelessly sync together via enabled software, essentially making anything in spitting distance (and probably further) all play in time automatically. And given Mixvibes’ love for this protocol, they’ve pretty much added to everything that they do.

Further details from Mixvibes:

Announcing cross-platform Ableton Link integration for Cross DJ & Remixlive.

Mixvibes releases new Android and Mac/PC versions that integrate Ableton Link. Mac, PC, Android and iOS users can now make music together by syncing Cross DJ and Remixlive over a simple WiFi connexion. In addition, desktop and Android products get many improvements, while Cross for Mac brings Syphon video routing.

Cross-platform integration

Ableton Link is a technology that syncs the beat, phase and tempo of Ableton Live or any Link-enabled app over the same WiFi network. Previously available in Cross DJ Pro and Remixlive for iOS, it is now integrated in Mixvibes’ Mac/PC and Android products. It allows anyone to:

  • Sync Cross DJ and/or Remixlive Mac/PC with the Android or iOS
  • Sync any of those apps with Ableton
  • Sync any of those apps with any other Link-compatible

All you need is a WiFi connection and 2 computers/devices with Remixlive or Cross DJ. All connected apps will then automatically play in sync across all devices.

Play together on all platforms

Your app, device or OS does not matter anymore. Just turn on Ableton Link and join the jam! It’s:

  • Simple: enable Ableton Link with a single
  • Intuitive: anyone can join in and play, from beginners to experienced

Syphon integration

The 64-bit version of Cross for Mac now integrates Syphon, a technology that sends the video output of one application to another in real time. You can, for example, create a video mix in Cross and at the same time use a second app to apply additional visual effects, or even map the output to a surface. To activate Syphon, go to settings and activate it in the Video tab.

Mixvibes adds Ableton Link to everything


Now, all of Mixvibes’ diverse multi-platform software will work with each other wirelessly, and anything else Link compatible too. It’s very clever stuff, and opens a number of technical and creative options. It’s certainly been one of the things that people have been requesting between Traktor and Live for ever, and now everyone is getting the chance to do it.

But these releases aren’t just about Link. Obviously there are bug fixes too and some more mappings, but for those who skim, Syphon has been added to the Mac version, which for the video DJs out there is a real draw.
