Audiobus 3 presets of your setups can be saved with all of the settings for hosted AU apps and IAA apps with Audiobus support that have state savings.
Audiobus State Saving means the IAA being hosted will have its settings saved when you save a preset for a setup in Audiobus 3. For example, a synth app would have the preset you were using saved when you save the setup as a preset in Audiobus.

- Ableton Link:
Applications on devices connected to a local network discover each other automatically and form a musical session in which each participant can perform independently. It comes as a built-in feature of other music applications across Windows, Mac, iOS and Android platforms (and Ableton Live). There are no Song Position or Start/Stop messages sent via Link, nor can any other MIDI data be sent. Link information is sent on both LAN and WLAN networks, as long as all devices are connected to the same network. Link is not supported over Bluetooth.
