    Default VJing/Visualizers for a party

    Hello all! This is my first post but i've been following the blog for a while now, love everything you all do!

    The question i pose is similar to VJ articles that have been on DJtechtools, but none of those articles quite solve my problem.
    I am Djing for our school's student sixth form after-party, where we get a big marquee in a field with visuals and a big speaker system and have a big party. I want to incorporate some kind of visual projection behind the DJ booth, that would be able to run un-touched for most of the time, but be triggered into changing patterns or speeding up at particular moments in songs, either by keyboard shortcut or a midi controller. I would also like to occasionally play video that would not need to be beat synced (ie. Lyric/Music videos for certain songs), and thus would want the video to mix in from the visuals (although this isn't necessary). Ideally all this would run from a secondary computer from an AUX in off the mixer. Does anyone know of software capable of doing all this (baring in mind i currently have no VJ content of my own).

    I'd appreciate any help what-so-ever.

    Thanks,

    Hugh

    You could look into Arkaos or similar, but most of the time running an input into another laptop running winamp does the trick.

    +1 for winamp, get milkdrop for the visualiser, brilliant little program to do all sorts of cool visualisations!!

    google WhiteCap and GeForce, both are little standalone programs (from the same author) intended for just the thing you need

    I have the paid version of morphyre which is awesome, doesn't run very smoothly on my machine though. Mostly i use milkdrop with the "Triptonaut" preset pack

    We run winamp on a standalone maschine at the club, works like a charm

    ........ Edit...... Oh my god, it's pretty sad when your phone autocorrects, "machine" to "maschine"

    I was checking into vdmx.( I believe is what its called) pretty cool. Pricey but I was messing with it and found it pretty cool. Mac only. There is also a ganz m4l device that looks pretty cool.

    I use Vizzable. But you'll need Ableton.
