Ableton and Serato have announced The Bridge at NAMM 2010 in Anaheim, California.
The Bridge is designed to provide “a powerful fusion of DJ and production tools, opening a world of opportunities for DJing, remixing and live performance.”
The Bridge works in both directions:
- Ableton to Serato: The Bridge provides Ableton Transport Control (ATC), giving DJs turntable-style control of their own multitrack productions. DJs can simply drag an Ableton Live Set onto one of the decks in Scratch Live or ITCH and use their turntables, CDJ or ITCH controller to control the transport.
- Serato to Ableton: The Bridge provides the ultimate mixtape creation tool. DJs can perform mixes in Serato Scratch Live or ITCH and save them as an Ableton Live Set. This way, the DJ can still perform the mix—better than cut and pasting it together in a DAW—but also has detailed editing options.
Pricing & Availability
The Bridge is free for anyone who owns registered versions of both Serato Scratch Live/ITCH hardware and Ableton Live 8 or Suite 8.
No release date has been set yet.
