REACTIONS FROM PROFESSIONALS
Serato showed The Bridge to some Ableton and Serato artists....
DJ Jazzy Jeff
"The mixtape feature was probably the best thin I've ever seen...For DJs who don't make beats yet, that turns into 'hey, I can make beats in here too.' For the guys who are beatmakers already as well as DJs, it's great because it's almost like you're DJing with multitracks. People are going to get really creative, I know my brain is working already, there's stuff that I'm going to do that I cannot choose not to disclise right now because it's top secret!"
"My initial reaction? I was absolutely elated. As with most DJs that are Ableton friendly, a lot of us have been ultizing Ableton's warping to quantize and straighten out records that otherwise fluctuate. Now that we have the opportunity to play with the actual flies, and use them in DJ gigs and live shows, the possibilities are absolutely 100% endless. Being as I just saw (The Bridge), my mind is racing with endless ideas..."
