Hi. I was delighted when I saw Cross integrating Link. So I should link it with Maschine (NI) tu do some remix and add some spices to my DJ sets.

I'm know trying this and I dont understand.
Tempo changes in active player don't change Link tempo. The only way to change it is to change with the tiny buttons +/- near Link button.
Changing link tempo doesn't change deck playing speed at all.
So it's useless.

And when Link is enable, pitch change in a deck is also disable.

So, how can this be used ? I can't find a way, neither any utility with link addition.

Hi Will,

Right now the way Ableton Link functions in Cross DJ is not the most practical. When link is enabled it takes over as the Master deck (and will read the BPM from the master deck) then you have to have SYNC enabled on both decks and will have to use the tiny + & - buttons to change the BPM for all decks and any other linked apps(since MIDI control seems to be broken).

I will bring this up with the team to see if there will be any plans to expand on Ableton link functionality, such as being able to have Cross DJ set and control the master BPM via the master deck (that way you can DJ the way you normally would and have it control the tempo of all other linked apps).

Thanks, Adam. I'll keep an eye on this.

From now, it's mostly unusable, except in a live where tempo doesn't change.

Team@Mixvibes wrote:Mixvibes releases new Android and Mac/PC versions that integrate Ableton Link. Mac, PC, Android and iOS users can now make music Speed Test Scrabble Word Finder Solitaire 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.

Ableton Link for all

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 versions.
- Sync any of those apps with Ableton Live.
- Sync any of those apps with any other Link-compatible app.
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 click.
- Intuitive: anyone can join in and play, from beginners to experienced musicians.
- Creative: use several apps at the same time to get that jam session feeling.

Ableton Link in Cross DJ and Remixlive takes DJing and live performance to the next level:
- Sync your apps on several devices to play back to back with friends.
- Use Remixlive to add extra loops over tracks playing in Cross DJ.
- Dozens of apps have Ableton Link. Combine them with Cross DJ & Remixlive to unleash your creativity.

Watch the video of Cross DJ + Remixlive Android playing together:

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.

Improvements & new mappings

Remixlive 1.3:
- New Autopilot feature: loops are triggered automatically, either line by line or randomly.
- New "All Stop" assignable command in mapping editor: when pressed, it resets the whole grid to off immediately.
- You can now delete samples from the collection.
- In VST host, it is now possible to record and playback a session (as a MIDI sequence).
- New mappings: Novation Launchpad MK2, Akai APC Mini, Livid Instruments Base 2.

Meanwhile, Cross/Cross DJ 3.4 gets Pioneer DDJ-SB2 & Reloop Mixtour mappings.

Remixlive 2.1:
- Import multiple samples at the same time and save time.
- Full features pack: unlock all the features at once and save money.
- Shop redesign: sample packs sorting and more.

Meanwhile, Cross DJ Pro 3.1 gets Android Nougat compatibility.
And all versions come with the usual batch of bug squashes.
