ADD AUDIO REACTIVE VISUALS TO YOUR ABLETON LIVE PERFORMANCE…
The conversation started “What if we could create devices that made Ableton Live Visuals…” some three months later we’d collaborated on our best set of visualisers yet, and we haven’t finished yet!
The World Collection is a set of MaxforLive visualisers based around a World Viewer device which renders all of the individual modules output to one screen, creating your own unique Ableton Live Visuals. These can then be beamed from a projector or output via the Syphon and Spout compatibility to VJ software like Resolume.
ABLETON LIVE VISUALS – WORLD DOMINATION!
The World Viewer is the basis, and within it you can control Background Color, Saturation and Contrast along with a set of Visual FX to create feedback or a Kaleidoscopic output.
WHY SEPARATE MODULES?
Place them anywhere in your Ableton Live set and send them Audio (MIDI playable World Modules are on the cards to) they can sit on each Audio track or have them in Return tracks, place an AutoFilter or EQ before them and sculpt out the element of the signal you want them to react to, have one for the baseline another for Treble etc. giving complete control over your Ableton Live Visuals.
Then as you perform your set you can send the World Modules what ever Audio you want and see each one create their unique visualisation within the World Veiwer screen…. (personally i send the source audio to a return track which then bounces back to an audio track where i host a load of Dummy Clips to automate the module, sounds complicated? I’d best throw up a video at some point to explain myself!)
We’ve got a large plan over the next few months for new devices that create Ableton Live Visuals from some of the hottest visual developers out there, you can grab them in packs or individually, whatever takes your fancy!
