Ableton and Serato present The Bridge — a natural link between Ableton Live and Serato Scratch Live. Ableton’s Jeff Milligan shows how The Bridge spans the gap between DJing and playing a live set, by allowing DJs to seamlessly integrate Ableton Live into a Serato Scratch Live setup.

Great news. I saw a rather pedestrian demonstration of The Bridge at the BPM show in the UK earlier this month, and it is great. Can’t wait for them to release the Serato ITCH version so us controllerism fans can get our hands on it too without having to use dirty old record decks or CDJs.
