RokVid

This week Ableton featured some new Max For Live Devices. One of them named RokVid by Adam Rokhsar I really like a lot. If you have seen my live show lately the show starts with analog video glitching created by a Gieskes HSS3i. I’ve been looking for new ways to easily sequence more video and at $24 RokVid is already getting some use.

“Drag in a folder of movies, adjust a few controls, and your video begins to take on a life all its own. RokVid puts engaging video content on autopilot so that you can focus on your live performance. Many parameters can be modulated by aspects of your music. For example, use bass frequencies to warp your video or use volume to crossfade between video sources. You can also automate all modulation destinations using standard LFO waveforms. RockVid easily interfaces with an external or built-in camera. You can then crossfade between your playback movie and a live feed.” – Ableton.com

    Dude! This is AMAZING! I have the opportunity to integrate video on a huge projector for a set this weekend, and this is EXACTLY what I was looking for! Thanks man!

    Just literally downloaded this! Awesome bit of kit but I was wondering what the best way to hook this up to an external device is?

    Would it be thunderbolt to HDMI and then use the external device as second screen rather than mirrored and just put the video screen, fullscreen on that?
