VDMX & The Visual Performance MIDI Mixer

kostax Design, LIVE!, Things I Like, Tools of the Trade, Video

VDMX is a powerful visual performance tool that i’ve started to implement into some recent projects. Instead of using the traditional keyboard & mouse combo to control various functions of the software, i’ve re-purposed a MIDI controller to control specific functions.

This custom hardware/software combo is something i call a Visual Performance MIDI Mixer. My goal with all of this is to create an “instrument” that can perform the software’s functions in a more expressive way, and with greater tactile feedback. Excited to complete the initial design and put this thing to use! More info about this project is coming soon.
