Serato has announced Flip. A new Expansion Pack for Serato DJ that allows users to create custom edits and other utilities for live remixing. Set for official release this September with Serato DJ 1.7, Serato Flip allows you to record your Cue Point and Censor actions, which can be saved and looped, ready to re-trigger and start in an instant.
Use Serato Flip to create and save up to 6 Flips per track, ready for playback in the studio or the club. The original idea of being able to record and playback cue point information in a simple way was first pitched to us by NZ producer P Money, who was already using Serato to put beats together by manually triggering cue points. AJ Bertenshaw, CEO of Serato says: “We are very proud and excited to finally unveil Serato Flip, which we have been hard at work on for many months. We think our users will find the ability to flip tracks and save their edits to be an indispensable new way to work with Serato DJ.”
Not only a great beat sketch pad, Serato Flip can also be used as a DJ tool. The simple, yet effective control set designed with the DJ in mind allows you to use it in your set in a number of ways:
» Make clean edits of your tracks by recording censor actions
» Extend intros, breakdowns or outros for better mixing
» Create transition sections in your songs for changing tempo or beat structure
» Advanced tone-play and performance
» Auto-skipping verses or choruses in songs
» Making beats
» Record Cue Point & Censor Automation
— Click record once to arm recording. Once you hit the first cue or censor, recording begins. Hit record again to set the end point of your Flip.
» Prepare & Edit Tracks In Offline Mode
— Use Serato Flip without your hardware connected.
» Flip Saving
— Save 6 different Flips per track. Serato Flip information is saved to your tracks metadata and doesn’t edit the audio of the track. You can delete cue points and your Flip will still be remembered.
» Hardware Controls, Keyboard Shortcut & Midi Mappable
— Control Flip directly from your computer or your controller with a keyboard shortcut and hardware controls being mapped for supported current and future hardware. Flip controls are also MIDI mappable for use with the MIDI controller of your choice.
» Looping / Loop Snap
— Choose whether your recorded Flip plays through once or loops. Select whether your looped Flip will snap to an end-point that’s on beat with your track.
» Recall and Replay
— Turn Flips ON / OFF and start your Flip on track load or whenever you like.
» Make perfect edits
— Platter movements aren’t recorded so you can move the platter to an exact point and trigger a cue point to make the perfect Flip.
» Name your Flips
— Just like Serato DJs nameable Cue Points you can also name your Flips. The name of your Flip will appear in the deck info area when the track is loaded.
Serato Flip will be available as a paid Expansion Pack with Serato DJ 1.7, coming this September. It will be available for purchase in-app and on the Serato Online Store for U$29.
