We're really happy to let you have the package which enables Link support in Max 7.
It's now up in the Package Manager, access it from the File menu in Max.
As many of you know, Link is an Ableton engineering effort for beat syncing apps across wifi networks. Be jamming with your friends on their iphones in a blink! No more messy MIDI sync in laptop orchestras etc.
It's an awesome package and we would have loved to get it to you sooner but we wanted to clarify a license arrangement with Ableton. You can build standalones and include Link functionality, making Max really useful for prototyping Link based apps. However, if you want to distribute these standalones to others you will need to sign your own agreement with Ableton.
From the licence -
“Ableton Link is licensed for use within Max. If you would like to incorporate Link support into a Max standalone application, it will require a specific license for your application. If you are a standalone developer interested in including Link support, please contact Ableton at email@example.com for more license related information. For more technical information on Link, please visit https://ableton.github.io/link/.”
We're also very pleased to include some reworked versions of the classic DDG MIDI sequencing tools in this package, because in testing and developing this is what we found ourselves having the most fun with.
