[NOT A BUG - un-supported custom ROM] Ableton Link didn't work, sync trouble

Postby Cris_ » Mon May 10, 2021 11:25 am

Hi,

i have a Samsung Tablet SM-T580 WiFi and tried nearly every A10/A11 custom ROM, mostly LineageOS.
I can connect with other devices without trouble but if i start play in G-Stomper the sequencer LED's are flashing absolutely crazy and beats are rumbled.
Same with RemixLive but Snap from Reactable runs rock solid with Ableton Link!

Tried all audio drivers with various latency settings.
Tried switch some network options in the Developer options.
Tried various Devices with WiFi Hotspot or with Wifi AP.

Nothing helped. G-Stomper products & RemixLive connects but didn't sync correctly. Snap plays absolutely stable.
No Firewall, no custom DNS, no AdAway.

I'm little frustrated .. :?

Please do not use un-supported custom ROMs.
None of them are guaranteed in any way to work.

Please re-flash the original Samsung Android 8.1 ROM for Galaxy Tab A.

I've just tried on a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 in this very moment with original ROM. Works like a charm.

G-Stomper products & RemixLive connects but didn't sync correctly. Snap plays absolutely stable.

The reason why Snap works is most likely because it uses an older version of the Ableton Link API. Just look at the latest update date of the Snap app : November 23, 2017.
G-Stomper uses the latest Ableton Link API, including Start/Stop sync.

However, revert your tablet to the original ROM and all will be fine.

Ok, installed a custom stock based v8.1 rom.
Works now like a charm but Google security patch level outdated!
Now happy jamming with a dangerous rom .. :twisted: ;)
