FreeJ :: Free Vision Mixer :: FreeJ is a vision mixer: an instrument for realtime video manipulation used in the fields of dance theater, veejaying, medical visualization and TV. Its development started in 2001 and continued actively for many years. What we need to do We need to interact with multiple layers of video, filtered by effect chains and then mixed together.

We want to write scripts to control video mixes with keyboards, midi signals, OSC messages, wiimotes, video mouse and joysticks; manipulating images, movies, live cameras, particle generators, text scrollers, flash animations and more. We show the resulting video mix on multiple and remote screens, encode it into a movie and stream it live to the internet. We control the vision mixer locally or remotely, also from multiple places at the same time; all functionalities are designed ad-hoc using javascript. How FreeJ does it With FreeJ we can overlay, mask, transform and filter multiple layers on the screen. Stream online video long live pirate TV! Internals. TouchOSC.

VirtualMIDISynth is a software MIDI synthesizer implemented as a Windows multimedia user driver, accessible as a standard MIDI Out device. It works on Windows XP (SP3) / Vista (SP1) / 7 (SP1) / 8 (both x86 and x64), and is based on the great BASS library from un4seen. Brief intro If you are a MIDI/karaoke fan like me, you know that MIDI play quality on Windows systems was not really good out of the box.

The bundled "Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth" MIDI Out device is just... ehm... simple: poor samples, mono sound, no effects (reverb, chorus) support. On 32bits systems some better alternatives exist, like the well-known YAMAHA XG SoftSynthetizer S-YXG50 and Cakewalk-sfz+ (both unsupported now). Upgrading to an x64 system was a pain for me: S-YXG50 doesn't work at all, Cakewalk-sfz+ was unusable.

One day Ian Luck (un4seen) added to his BASSMidi library a great feature: the possibility to render a live MIDI stream, including SysEx messages. Main features What now? How much does it cost?
