i would like to do a hybrid dj/vj set. i have thought of a few scenarios and i also have a question.
which would be the most reliable system?
1. entirely in max6
i would create two "decks" that play video and sound, including a mixer to crossfade between the two. the challenge here is there is a huge amount of work to assemble everything since i'm still a more novice user.
2. ableton live to play audio, sending midi/osc signals over to max6 to trigger video.
in this scenario i am taking advantage of all the assembled audio components of ableton. the only problem is i dont understand how a slowed down music track would also slow down the video in max.
3. max4live for the whole set.
i have my qualms about the stability of maxforlive and jitter. feel free to tell me that it's no more risky than option #2.
now my question is pertaining to option #2. how do you send a message from ableton to max6 to trigger a bang for a video?
any tutorials or patches are much appreciated
