Enabling Link in Live

  • Live Versions: 9.6 and higher
  • Operating System: Windows, Mac

1. Connect your computers/devices to the same network. If there is no internet connection available you can use one of these offline methods.

2. In Live, open the Preferences -> Link MIDI and ensure that "Show Link Toggle" is enabled.

If at least one other Link-enabled app or instance of Live is connected, the Arrangement Position display will show a moving “progress bar” whenever Live’s transport is not running. This bar is a representation of the Live Set’s global launch quantization in relation to that of the other participants in the Link session. After you trigger playback, Live will wait until this bar is filled before starting.
