Serato and Ableton have announced a partnershi that hopes to “pave the way for the future of Digital DJing.”
While Serato’s Scratch Live excels in vinyl emulation, music library control and hands-on scratching, Ableton Live provides the tools for production, on-the-?y remixing and beat creation.
“Ableton and Serato take different approaches to modern musical performance,” says Ableton CEO
Gerhard Behles, “But both companies live by the philosophy that software should be straightforward,
easy to use, and most importantly, reliable and stable onstage and in the studio. Ableton has never had
an answer for the DJ who wants vinyl control, and rather than try to emulate what Serato do so well, we
simply make sure that our products work well together.”
Serato Audio Research CEO Steve West agrees. “After years of talking together, we’re thrilled to be
working with Ableton. It’s exciting to think about what we can offer to DJs and producers: the ability to
go beyond just spinning records and add a personal stamp to the music they play.”
Details of the partnership have not yet been announced.
