What is Ableton Link? Take a look:
It is a way of linking electronic instruments and devices together so that they can all play together in time. If you already have Ableton Live, it is included in the latest update. However, it is also available as a feature of many new apps for iOS.

I think this kind of thing could be the future of musical collaboration, and also live musical performance. Imagine a load of electronic musicians live on stage with a bunch of iPads all running different music apps. They could all come in randomly at different times and jam away.
But even in the studio, it could open things up to allowing people to be more spontaneous with their musical creations, especially when used with MIDI over Bluetooth. This kind of technology is definitely the way forward for music.
But what do you think? Why not let me know in the comments section below.
All the best,
