In this mode, Ableton Link acts as a MIDI slave to an external MIDI clock by manipulating the Ableton Link tempo to keep it in sync.
The status pips can show in the following combinations:
|Red||Red||No incoming MIDI clock (won't sync)|
|Red||Yellow||Waiting for incoming MIDI clock (waiting to sync)|
|Orange||Orange||Incoming MIDI clock; not received MIDI start (tempo only sync)|
|Green||Yellow||Incoming MIDI timeline; Link not yet in sync|
|Green||Green||Incoming MIDI timeline; Link is in sync|
