What buffer size settings should I use in Live and Serato Scratch Live when running The Bridge?

  • Live Versions: 8.2 - 9
  • Operating System: ALL

Your buffer settings in Serato Scratch Live and Ableton Live will depend on your particular computer and hardware setup.

When using the Serato driver, we recommend starting with 5ms buffer size in Serato Scratch Live, and 128 samples audio buffer in Ableton Live. You can try lowering your buffer size as much as possible: should crackles take place, set a larger value.

If you require a low latency in order to perform (for example for live scratching - turntablism) but want to avoid performance issues, it might be a good idea to set a low latency in Serato Scratch Live and a larger buffer size in Live.

In Live, please go to Preferences > Audio in order to adjust your buffer size.
