Announcing: Serato FlipPosted on 28 July, 2014
Announcing Serato Flip. A brand new Expansion Pack for Serato DJ that allows you to create custom edits, extend and re-imagine your music.
Available this September with Serato DJ 1.7 - Flip allows you to record your cue point and censor actions which can be saved and looped, ready to re-trigger and start 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.
Not only a great beat sketch pad, Serato Flip can also be used as a powerful 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.
Serato Flip will be available as a paid Expansion Pack in Serato DJ 1.7, coming this September. It will be available for purchase in-app and on the Serato Online Store for USD $29.
Serato Flip Features
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.
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.
Check out the teaser video to see Flip in action. Feel free to drop us a line in the comments and we'll be there to chat. We're also hosting a live streaming event at DJ City on the 5th August at 7:30pm (PST) where we will be giving a demo.
Let us know if you have any questions and look out for more info leading up to the release this September.
NOTE: This will only be available in the full release version of Serato DJ 1.7 and is not available during the public beta period.
