VS provides a creative way to generate beautiful graphical representations of your music projects. Driven by both audio and MIDI data, VS is the visual equivalent of a traditional synthesizer.

VS takes the concept of music visualisation to a whole new level of customisation and expression, putting you in control and giving you the power to perform however you want.

VS is powered by graphical materials that you can interact with and layer on top of each other to create complex evolving visuals.

As well as a standalone app, VS includes an AUv3 plugin version, so you can run it directly inside your favourite iOS DAW programs like AUM and Audiobus etc.

As the name suggests, VS Visual Synthesizer can be played live like an audio synthesizer; use your MIDI keyboard to make each layer come alive with the concept of ‘polyphonic visual voices’.

We partnered with new media artist ‘Perplex On’ to bring you a factory preset bank full of amazing interactive visuals, you can start using right away, to create dazzling animations and make your music move in a whole new medium.

Not the easiest app to wrap your head around. I’d give more for a step by step tutorial. I understand the object of the app, just wish it was simple enough to link my audio and use IA. Spent an hour trying to add a file then still have not figured out how to play the video file to see the generative effects. I switch to an audio app or ven Zenbeats DAW…doesn’t work in it. Can’t even see it as a plugin or an IA option either so not really sure even. It’s definitely not Nodes but then again…its just an app. But pretty to look at thats for sure. Buyer beware.. app doesn’t instruct on where to even begin. Demos are polished to entice, but leave the user confused as to how to jump in and start.. is what it is.

Wow! Finally the video app I’ve always wanted!

This app is flat out amazing! None the less so because to my surprise it manages to run smoothly on my old iPad Air 2. I didn’t think it would. I’m sure I won’t be able to get too crazy with too many layers, but so far it does everything I need and more ... even while running as an AUv3 effect alongside other apps generating music. I’m floored!

I always wanted something to easily produce video that reacts to audio being fed into it. But VS goes even further by reacting to midi input as well. There are four LFOs that can add undulations and all kinds of movement free running or in sync with musical tempo.

I’m just completely amazed at this app. Thank you so much imaginando!

Apt Help Doesn’t Work

Online documentation is for the desktop version. Settings are completely different in app. In app help doesn’t work. You might try a little less piazzas and a little more testing. For help not to work is inexcusable. Your online manual needs to be a PDF and for the iOS version.

When using VSVS as a AUv3 you need to cover the whole display. What good are great graphics when you still display the AUM stuff at the top and the app’s menus and resize bar? It completely destroys the esthetics! You could use two-finger double tap.

The only reason I gave you 4-stars is I like your granular synth.

Hi, thanks for your feedback. The manual covers the main functions and features of VS common in both versions; the settings menu is only tiny part of VS. The in app help tips are accessible using the question mark icon, and a weblink to the manual is available from the menu.

We are working on improving the full screen experience when using VS inside AUM.
