From my user point of view I welcome Linux apps integrating Ableton
Link. Actually I don't know if I really need it, but it doesn't harm to
have the opportunity to use it. Some subscribers explained that it's
not just another way to sync by one master and several slaves.

I've got a question. If I e.g. have one device at 180 BPM and another
at 90 BPM, they both could keep the their own tempo and would play in
sync? This double/half speed thing is a common MIDI sync issue.
