Ableton, Serato The Bridge

September 23, 2010

The Bridge is a software partnership that brings together DJ performance and production. Ableton Transport Control allows tight synchronization between Ableton Live and Serato Scratch Live. DJs can control multitrack productions using a turntable or CDJ; pitching, nudging and looping just as with a regular record or CD.

The Ableton View in Scratch Live opens a window into Live's Session view, where users can launch clips and scenes, control instruments and devices, mix, mute and solo from Scratch Live. Tight Beatgrid implementation ensures that Ableton Live stays locked to the timing of a DJ set.

Record Serato DJ performances as Ableton Live Sets, complete with song placement and fader movements. Then use Ableton Live''s collection of effects, instruments and production tools to edit, enhance and polish the mix.

The Bridge is free for anyone who owns a registered version of Ableton Live 8.2 and Serato Scratch Live hardware.
