Polyphonic Visual Voices

We’re taking polyphony into the visual domain with the concept of VS' polyphonic ‘visual voices’. Just like pressing multiple piano keys produces the sound of several notes together, each VS layer can display multiple visual voices of it’s material.


VS - Visual Synthesizer layer-based rendering engine allows you to stack and blend 8 material layers, on top of a custom background image/video layer, with the ability to access and control all layer parameters for a deeply customizable range of creative possibilities.

Awesome!!! Some ideas for future updates?

This is a really cool app! been messing around with GLSL coding for a few months, and the implementation of custom GLSL shaders is really great and intuitive in VS. There are a couple of things I would love to see added in future updates: - more ways to interact between different layers such as displacement of one layer to another and feedback loops. - post processing effects such as luma key, feedback, kaleidoscope, mirror or others. - option to load videos and images in the layers other than the B layer Maybe too much to ask? 😅
