Sync Live Music and Lights Real-time Frequency Band and Beat Analysis
Sync with the Music / Music2Light
When it comes to making the lights dance in sync with the music, Lightjams offers you a lot of creative options, all accessible in a few clicks. Real-time music analysis is perfect for improvisational music sessions when you can't just playback pre-recorded lighting effects.
Here's a video from Peter Reinisch who uses the music analysis to automatically trigger effects. As he said, he really likes being able to take a beer and watch the show while Lightjams does its job. The fixtures are composed of 27 par cans behind the screen, 18 Colorado 3s, 4 Martin Mac500s, 7 Elation 250 Designspots and 16 LED Blinders. (Sorry for the loud music and somewhat low quality sound capture)
Here's a video from a wedding party using the music to control up-lights. The DJ also uses a MIDI controller to control a few parameters live. Thanks to Brian Waltz and GreenLight Event Design for this great video.
A nice video from Cory Helmuth of the Christmas lighting community, using Lightjams to create a color organ: live music controls the lights. DMX data is sent via a wireless network and sACN E1.31 output.
Select one of the 20 music frequency bands for a very precise music synchronization. In fact, Lightjams does a high quality 1024 band analysis and crunch the numbers to shows you a handy 20 frequency band version.
When you care about the music mood only, the overview offers you four frequency bands: overall, low, mid and hi. In addition, the blue lines show you the average power which is perfect to follow the music atmosphere.
One-click beat detection! Just check the "beat" box and Lightjams will automatically detect beat amplitude for the selected frequency. It is not simply on and off but a full percentage value so you can know about the real beat power.
Multiple Sound Cards
The music from up to 4 sound cards can be fully analyzed in real time. It allows you to place sound recorders at different physical locations and trigger effects based on where it comes from.
