USE YOUR OWN IMAGES IN OUR WORLD VISUALISERS – GRAPHIK ONE!
After months of hard work, audio/visual artist Chris Vik brings you another set of real-time visual devices to Isotonik Studio’s World Collection for your Ableton Live sets. Graphik ONE comprises of 3 highly versatile MaxForLive devices that focus on turning 2D images into sonically-modulated 3D objects; it breaks out of the World Collection’s colour palette system to let you “borrow” palettes from absolutely any image, drastically expanding the visual possibilities. Make sure to check out the official Collab Alliance video clip to see a small glimpse of what the pack can do.
Meshify takes any image you throw at it and turns it into a 3D mesh for you to play with. Turn that picture of a sun into a spiky 3D sphere and use the built-in spectral analyser to modulate the mesh and the texture colours to your bassline; melt an image of a speaker into a wireframe that pulses to your kick drum; or use any image you like the colour palette of and turn it into a tunnel
Cubify turns your images into an audio-responsive, 3D cluster of pixel-art-esque cubes. Using the audio streaming into it each cube can be stretched, spun and shifted independently. This powerful device allows you to animate what was once-static; logos, cartoon characters, cats… just drag and drop!
reTex seems like a simple device at first; it’s a 2D plane covered by any image you put on it; but dig deeper and you’ll realise how many essential visual techniques can be achieved with it. Slowly rotate reTex and the 3rd dimension it sits in can be dramatically revealed. Layer multiple instances of reTex and offset the textures at different speeds to get a simply parallax effect (commonly used in animations) to give your visual set depth and movement. Use the caleidoscope parameter to collapse any image into a constantly evolving and folding geometric patterns. And of course, like all of Chris’ devices, the texture can be modulated by any incoming audio stream.
NOTE: THIS PACK CONTAINS THE WORLD VIEWER DEVICE SO YOU DON’T NEED TO PURCHASE IT SEPARATELY!
