    One difference between dj apps and live is the amount of preparation needed. With decks, cdjs, tracktor, virtual dj, serato you can pretty much throw on any track and providing you can mix with or without software assistance, you can beatmatch and seamlessly transition to tge new tune.
    With your tunes in live you have to warp them first before you play as it's tge only way to beatmatch them
    For this reason when you use live with a dj app, tge mixing and matching happens in tge dj app

    That being said I did use virtual dj output via a virtual audio cables into live then use compression to cross fade between tracks and add effects via live. However the dj beatmatching happened in the dj app

    Bl4cksun.. I was checking out the launchpad or APC. I'll have to play around with it to discover its capabilities. Thanks guys.

    I guess the normal route to using serato and live, is a pair of decks complete with the serato scratch timecode vinyl or timecode cd and cdjs. A rane interface for the serato side of things although I don't know if it works with any interface.
    For ableton you could use any interface i guess....maybe a novation launchpad for clip launching and possibly an old novation zero sl for the knobs and buttons... APC, push, etc.
    There were a couple of gotchas with serato bridge when using ableton live 8, e.g. no 64 bit etc but not sure if they are fixed with live 9. Im sure i read somewhere you need the suite version of live.
    You then need to work out what you want to do with live.. it can sit on a serato track and replaces one of the decks or can be used in parallel but that brings in the need for interfaces that can be driven by two bits of software (windows) or other such audio routing issues. alternatively it can be used as an effects unit/sample playback unit.

    Please note I don't have serato, but did used trackor and virtual dj both in combination with live.

How To Approach Promoters, Artist Managers and Event Organizers

Trying to get booked for events when you are first getting yourself into the scene can be one of the most frustrating parts of being an artist or DJ.
