djay Pro 2 for Mac and djay for iOS now support Ableton Link which makes them syncable with other Ableton Link-ready devices across a local network.
There are some important things to keep in mind when setting up Ableton Link. First of all, it's helpful to have a good understanding of djay's Sync in general, and in particular to understand how djay is treating the Active Deck (the Master to which other decks are getting synced).
djay's Sync behavior is similar to Ableton Link in that djay will sync to another device and adopt its tempo. It can also take over the lead when the other device's playback stops, or djay can act as the Master itself. Initially, the Master is selected based on which beat on any linked device is active first.
Enabling Ableton Link
- Make sure all devices you want to link are connected to the same local WIFI network.
- Open the djay settings (main Settings menu in djay for iOS, Advanced Section in djay Pro 2 for Mac) and enable Ableton Link.
- A beat indicator will appear in the User Interface to show you that Link is enabled (Image 1) and what Master Tempo it is using at the moment. Also, you will see the number of connected devices in the settings (Image 2).
