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.
The great Quixotic Fusion are doing their 2013 tour with Lightjams! Here's a video showing them using the music2lights feature to generate an interactive visual. The led wall is composed of about 1100 RGB leds, all controlled by Lightjams. Quixotic also uses the OSC input features of Lightjams to remotely trigger 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.
