URGENT: Audiobus 3 & Ableton Link - not working!!! :(

Hey there I've recently got the new Ipad 9.7 128gb wifi only version. I installed Audiobus 3 on it and loaded up some Ableton Link enabled apps but when attempting to run them in sync they simply failed. The apps I was trying to sync together was DM1 and Beatmaker 2. I'm very disappointed. Can someone shed some light on this please as I feel quite annoyed. In principle Audiobus 3 seems great but in practice it doesn't appear to work. :-( By the way my Ipad isn't an Ipad Pro in case you're wondering. Thanks.

  • According to the AB app list Beatmaker 2 doesn't support link.

    Sorry bud. Beatmaker 2 doesn't have link. It's neither Audiobus nor ableton links fault. Works well with beatmaker 3 though.

    I beg to differ

  • Yeah Beatmaker 2 definitely supports Ableton Link. Anyways have bypassed Link as it doesn't work and am using Midi Clock instead which does. Anyone recommend a decent audio mixer with wav/mp3 rendering to put on the output of Audiobus 3? Cheers. :smiley:

  • There's only one option:
    AUM

    I stand corrected. My bad.

  • BM2 was the first DAW to support Link...BM3 is the 2nd

    What's that mate? :smiley:

    EDIT Just Googled it - seems good. Any idea how I would upload a recording from that app to Soundcloud? Nice one. :smiley:

    EDIT 2 Bit pricey lol at almost $19 :open_mouth: Any cheaper alternatives or am I being a cheap skate lol?

  • With everything AUM can do, $19 is more than fair.

    Mm guess so. :smile: Need a pay rise for all these apps me thinks lol.

  • AUM is the way forward. It's worth every penny

    Audioshare by kymatica. Its really useful for organizing files and playing them back, converting from m4a <---> wav. You can record out into that and its super simple/useful tool

    If you need more editing options (eq/compression/fine edits/layers) then get Multitrack DAW by harmonicdog

    Check your DM1 midi out settings... it should say something like ‘disable iaa for link to work’ or something like that.

    Edit... me thinks
