Any chance Ableton Link will be added to Caustic?

The recent update has created quite a stir on the Audiobus forum. Two Caustic related posts have received nearly 5k views over the past week. A number of posts have mentioned Link. What do you say Rej?

Sometimes the presets of the others app can be add to caustic. You have to make the file in the caustic file and maybe caustic can read the preset but it's not good everytime

Just to rekindle this thread.

Just to rekindle this thread.... Please can this be added to the wish list for future updates?! It would be amazing to see Caustic with Ableton Link integration for live synchronised jamming.

I think you'll be waiting a LONG time for that...

There is a heap of feature requests that would benefit every user, Caustic is primarily a mobile app, Ableton is not... My guess is that universal mobile features would come ahead, so more machines slots, more fx, mastering app, modular components, etc.

Of course I could be wrong.

Ableton Link is a way of

Ableton Link is a way of syncing apps to a common clock. It is not tied to Ableton Live.

For instance, if I have an app with an arpeggiator and a drum machine app, Link will sync them so they will both run at the same tempo.

Being able to sync Caustic to other apps would allow for a lot of possibilities beyond what either app could do on its own.

Exactly what Anickt said!

Exactly what Anickt said! Link is becoming universal for mobile music apps. It would just enable us to time sync with other apps and wirelessly to other devices too. You don't need Ableton to use it. It would make Caustic would be even more of a beast and my go to for live jamming.

Caustic is one of the best apps I have come across (as a fairly newcomer) and am using it on my phone and ipad regularly. Big up Rej and anyone else involved in the developing! Hope this request can be considered for the near future.

These types of things, I know

These types of things, I know for a fact Rej needs massive people saying they want it. It's not trivial for him to add, just as there is no MIDI master right now, this is actually due to the extra implementation he needs to do.

I'm sure he really looks at things like this as amount of users to use it verses his time.

In the iOS world Link is a

In the iOS world Link is a given for syncing apps that have any form of clock. Inter App Audio (IAA), AudioBus, AudioShare or cloud integration, and Link are things users expect to see in any app.

It seems that iOS is not well represented on this forum. There was quite a bit of activity on the Audiobus forum when 3.2 was released however.

My concern is that Rej has moved on and Caustic will not keep up with iOS updates.

I know, I actually know how to write Link code, I did a lot of research a couple months ago. What I am saying is, the reason it's not here right now is because of the sequencer, the actual code.

Rej will/would have to rewrite a lot of code to get things syncing from the outside in.

I am not at all debating that I wouldn't be drop dead happy if Link was implemented because then my apps could be Link enabled. I use Link with Ableton/Maschine and external stuff quite a bit.

My concern is that Rej has moved on and Caustic will not keep up with iOS updates. 

Could be true, could be false, I guess Rej is the only one that knows.
