Serato Launches New Remote iPad App For Music Fans And DJs
Serato has launched its first official iPad app. Called Serato Remote, the $19.99 application allows music fans and DJs to connect their iDevice to Serato's desktop software, in order to "control Cue Points, Loops and Samples, and manipulate FX in ways that weren’t previously possible," according to Serato. The developer explains:
Perform all of your favorite Scratch Live and Serato DJ functions without needing to touch your laptop. See Serato’s famous Virtual Decks and Track Overviews so you can focus on the crowd and free yourself from your laptop. Connect over USB for ultra low latency or wirelessly, freeing you to move around the stage.Claiming to have designed the app "with real world performance in mind," Serato offers the following features in its application:
Furthermore, Serato includes three separate performance tabs, which allow users to navigate between the app's wide-ranging set of features. The PADS tab allows users to access cue points, loops, and loop roles; SAMPLER includes six sample slots for users to customize; and the FX tab features sound effects for users to utilize. Serato Remote can be downloaded in the App Store for $19.99, and is optimized for the iPad only.
