Ableton-Serato The Bridge
Serato and Ableton announced the release of The Bridge, a software partnership which brings together DJ performance and production.
The new tools generated by this partnership are designed to emphasize ease and creativity while pushing the boundaries of live performance.
‘Ableton Transport Control’ is designed to allow 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. It’s like having Ableton Live on one of your decks.
The ‘Ableton View’ in Scratch Live opens a window into Live’s Session View, where you 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 your DJ set.
Record Serato DJ performances as Ableton Live Sets, 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.
