Ableton Serato The Bridge

Ableton and Serato bridge the gap between music production and DJing with The Bridge. The Bridge requires Serato Scratch Live 2.1.1 and Ableton Live/Suite 8.2 or above. Open both programs at the same time with Rane hardware attached to activate The Bridge online.

Remix Your Own Tracks Live

The Bridge gives you turntable-style control of your own multitrack productions. Simply drag an Ableton Live Set to a deck in Scratch Live and use your turntables or CDJ to control the transport. Scratch Live enhances your productions with deck control, mixing, nudging and DJ style looping, while you can remix, mute/solo tracks, use virtual instruments, change drum patterns, manipulate audio, tweak effects and launch loops on the fly in Ableton Live.

Welcome To The Next Level

Apart from your Scratch Live hardware, using an additional dedicated controller such as Akai Professional APC40, APC20, or Novation Launchpad opens up your game for more mixing, effects handling and for triggering clips.

Learn How To Set Up Your Gear

If you're just getting started with Ableton Live, you'll want to go through the Ableton Live lessons, located inside the program in the Help View

The World

Behind the scenes, Ableton and Serato have implemented a two-way communication link to connect the programs. The timing is tight and it doesn't matter which program you open first.

DJ blu - The Bridge Minimum

This gonna make ya think about what the hell am I doing with this. DJ Blu with the minimum can't wait too see the full. This is what we talking about right here when we say find out what type of dj do you want to be. This type of set takes time and hours to perfect. Well for most anyway, you have to learn ableton before the bridge.

Kap'n KuTT - 8 Bit Turntablism Showcase - 2011

Equipment used:

2x Vestax PDX 2000
Shure M447
Rane TTM 57 SL (Original Faders)
Serato Scratch
Akai MPD 16
Echo AudioFire 4
Novation Launchpad
Ableton Live
1 x Not really stable Desk

Camera: Canon EOS 7D

This Setup was done on 4 Audio Channels. 2 Turntables, MPD, Launchpad.
(MPD and Launchpad are merged into Aux). The Supermario OST is triggerd from the Launchpad, as well as the third Song "Fami-Dance".

The Video was originally filmed on two parts, but in preproduction one particular scratch-recording stood out as more special (the one with the most improvisation), so we actually switched this part with the original one. (Chronology: Beat Juggeles / Scratching / Drumming on Pads)

Pre and Post Production by:

Peter Maler
Eldar Siradjov
Dieter Gusenbauer
