Vidget – Sync Live to VJ Apps via OSC

Apologies for cross posting. Never got my head around the 2 forums thing.

A few years ago I made a few tutorials about syncing Ableton Live to various VJ apps and a video version of the buffer shuffler https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=132447. I still get a steady trickle of people interested in this stuff so have decided to make a new version.

So here is Vidget – it is cross platform, should work with any OSC enabled VJ software and comes with example patches for Isadora, Resoume 4 and VDMX.

Features: Tight Sync of Video to Live clips in Session View
Responds to Loops/Tempo/Volume/Follow Actions/Start Points etc etc pretty much everything.
Modified version of Buffer Shuffler which will affect your video for glitchy mayhem!
Experimental timecode feature which allows video version of temporal fx like Beat Repeat, InstaJungle, Turnado etc.

There are 2 versions one for Live9/Max 6 and one for Live 8. If you have Live 9 and Max 5 err I think you need the Live * version. This stuff gives me a headache.

There is an example Live set with the download and files for Isadora, VDMX and Resolume. OSC in ports should be set to 7000 (at least initially). It should work without any mucking about but hey I’m sure you know what computers are like!

I have half written a m4L device that gives output compatible with the Vizzable plugins. If anyone hassles me enough I’ll finish it.
Sure, I can start just now…
Edit : and btw, you sound rather stoned than excited…

Ok this is a bit barebones but it should work:

You still need to get the video files from the vimeo page above for the example set to work.

Mute just freezes the output and opacity isn’t connected – you can achieve this with Vizzable anyway I think. Same with the mixing I guess. (I don’t use Vizzable)

Let me know how you get on.

PS Not stoned. Just slightly disorientated by talking into a computer.

Nice ! I see you don’t bear too much pressure because my harassment wasn’t that tough :))
I’m going to try this. I still have to get my head around to understand how the routing and query system in Vizzable works…
PS : I get what you mean, I often get high talking into a computer.
