Ableton / Serato The Bridge

Ableton and Serato have announced The Bridge, the missing link between digital production and DJing.

The Bridge spans the gap between music production and DJing, creating a natural link between Ableton Live and Serato Scratch Live/ITCH. The Bridge provides a powerful fusion of DJ and production tools, opening a world of opportunities for DJing, remixing and live performance.

The Bridge features

  • Ableton to Serato — The Bridge provides Ableton Transport Control (ATC), giving you turntable-style control of your own multitrack productions. Simply drag an Ableton Live Set to a deck in Scratch Live or ITCH and use your 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.

The Bridge is free for anyone who owns both:

  • A registered version of Serato Scratch Live or ITCH hardware and
  • Ableton Live 8 or Suite 8
