The core of VS - Visual Synthesizer is a collection of graphical shaders called materials, which render procedurally generated geometry in real time, based on each material's set of unique parameters. VS comes loaded with 50 beautifully hypnotic materials for you to customise and combine, to create mesmerising displays. Be inspired and get up and running in an instant too, thanks to the factory bank of presets created by audio-visual new media artist Perplex On!
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.
Open the DAW to a world of visuals
Aswell as a standalone app, VS - Visual Synthesizer comes in a range of plugin formats, which can be run inside a DAW like Ableton, to react directly to your compositions, live in realtime. In terms of MIDI interaction, this gives you huge potential to create amazing visuals right inside your DAW.
