Serato and Ableton finally announce “The Bridge”

Well, back in October 2008, the fine people at Ableton and Serato announced that they were going to partner up on some new ideas. Finally, at NAMM 2010, last weekend, they let everyone know. The new project is called "The Bridge" and from what I have gathered, it combines Ableton Live with Serato Scratch or ITCH so you can use them interchangeably and you can use Ableton directly from Scratch Live or ITCH.

Ableton says "With ATC, Scratch Live or ITCH provides 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." So this is going to be an extremely powerful tool. Check out the picture below and the video too. So far, this is still coming soon. They have not announced the price yet, but if you have Scratch Live or ITCH and the Ableton 8 suite, then you can get it for free. I want to get my hands on this. Once I have it, I will report all the new goodness. More info here for what Ableton can do with Serato.

NAMM 2010 just happened in Anaheim California. was there to cover it. They caught up to DJ Z-Trip to ask him "what's in your bag?" Personally, Z-Trip is awesome and I would love to interview him more thoroughly, but this will do for now. The Video After The jump.
