MIDI is widely used for music production; there are sequencers, controllers, and loopers that drive music synthesizers, enabling musicians to create complex works of art with just an iOS device or a laptop.

Visual Synth brings the same power - but to video playback. Load in a video from you iPad camera roll. By sending a MIDI note to the app, you can cue to any point in the video, start and stop playback, and control a range of effects, much like you would with a conventional audio synthesizer. You can adjust the speed of playback, change the volume of the video, and even fade to black.

Because MIDI is widely used, there are countless hardware MIDI controllers, MIDI generating apps, and powerful sequencers and loopers. You can use Visual Synth to complement a live performance with video, or put together a music video that is synchronized perfectly with the sounds.

Even if you're not using the app for music applications, it's still exceptionally useful. Because MIDI can be sent over WiFi, Bluetooth, and cables of various kinds, you can control video playback remotely with MIDI controllers. There are even apps for smart watches that can send MIDI - the possibilities are endless.

Secret Base Design has been creating innovative MIDI apps for years; Visual Synth provides a bridge between the music world, and video production.
