Sam Gribben, former CEO of Serato, has ventured off to create his own app, Melodics, which aids aspiring DJs to learn the art of pad drumming. We found out more on the new app and how he’s rolling it out into a tech-crowded market.
For the last 16 years, Serato has been at the forefront of DJ culture and technology. Its ground breaking Pitch ‘n Time time-stretching algorithm and flagship audio mixing software product Serato DJ are industry standards. Kanye West rapped about them on one of his tracks. Eminem did the same. And now it’s releasing its first mass-consumer app, Serato Pyro, a music player that beat-matches and mixes song playlists. Chief executive AJ Bertanshaw explains the company’s evolution—and its Kiwi style marketing approach.
