The Bridge is Serato meets Ableton Live

Take Ableton’s Session View and mirror it inside Serato’s digital turntable interface and you have what the two companies call “The Bridge”. Every month or so I power up Traktor and make a mix for the car/gym. Considering my Ableton Live addiction I think I’m going to have to give this a shot.

I know this won’t be “the” touch screen turntable killer but it does show one will arrive someday. It’s crazy Microsoft doesn’t get the price of Surface to something reasonable and push it to consumers.
