Instruments and effects

Videosync’s instruments generate content intended as a source for mixing, blending, keying or displacement. Simpler rhythmically triggers your video content, and the External In instrument fetches input from Syphon or any external video source.

With an ever-growing selection of visual effects, Videosync enables full control over your performance. Mapping and automating combinations of effects leads to surprisingly complex patterns and shapes, providing the visual freedom of expression you need to match all creative facets of your audio.
