Choices in VJ software for visualists and VJs are a plenty. You’ll generally find that most artists will find they own prefered performance software and generally stick with that. Software like Resolume Avenue, Module8, VDMX and GrandVJ tend to be a common choice for pro visualists all over the world for quite sometime now along with a dash of patch based software and number of open sources coding environments (eg. Processing), and yet at times we always look for some unique features or characteristcs that other software doesnt offer or just does things diffrently.
Here comes VJ Mode 1.5. This could be a popular choice for many artists who would like a decent selection of tools for a reasonable price. At the time of writing the retail value for VJ Mode 1.5 (mac) is at 139 Euro or approx 180 Australian Dollars and it has a comprehansive set of features that you’d expect from any professional vj software.
VJ Mode is a software application intended for visualists and VJs for creating stunning visuals in clubs, venues, dance parties and festivals. The program has many tools and features implemented to control and automate easily and efficiently all the visual process that is needed for a complete performance. A powerful audio analysis engine creates control parameters that are instantly linked to the visual processing units of the software, allowing the user to specifically set a time-based control that is needed to create a show that is desired.Pre-installed VFX units allow the user to design impressive visual styles and also is given the opportunity to upgrade the current effects database by using the Freeframe protocol. Moreover, the user may find selections for setting different transition modes between files and events, automatic configuration and interpolation of the user settings and intuitive storage and selection of files and folders. Other basic features include a real-time audio visualizer that displays a number of different visual-styled waveforms, multi-screen support with up to four screens, total control of the output screens (size, position, keystone, etc), and communication with internal and external hardware and software devices with MIDI, OSC, and TouchOSC protocols.
