Designed to get you jamming across multiple platforms and devices, the (Novation) Blocs Wave for iOS music creation app now includes Ableton Link support. It's a free update for existing users.

Blocs Wave for iOS, the new music-creation app released last month, now gets Ableton Link support for epic mobile jamming sessions. Now combine Blocs Wave’s real-time stretch engine, with a super-fast and intuitive browser, to make this the perfect partner app for real-time jamming. Playing together is now easier than ever. 

With support for Link in Blocs Wave, you can now jam in sync with other Link-enabled apps simply by joining the same wireless network. Forget the hassle of setting up — just focus on playing music. You can even connect to Ableton Live running on a laptop. Anyone can start and stop their part while others keep playing. Anyone can adjust the tempo and the rest will follow. No MIDI cables, no installation, just free-flowing sync that works.
