SoundSwitch is a Digital Lighting Workstation that lets users create lighting displays that are played back in time with audio files when played back live in Serato DJ/VDJ 8. It allows DJs and lighting designers the ability to sync lighting visuals with live audio seamlessly.
Edit Mode, in SoundSwitch, is a powerful tool that allows you to create customised lighting effects and cues that are along side and in time with music files. It has been designed to be familiar to anyone with experience using audio editing programs such as Ableton Live. Combining this timeline editing with tools similar to those found in graphic design software like Photoshop, SoundSwitch provides a user experience that is both functional and familiar.
Performance mode, in SoundSwitch, is where all the creative effort comes to life. When playing audio files through Serato DJ/VDJ 8 SoundSwitch works quietly in the background to sync the created lighting displays without a hitch. All the live control is in your hands and the lighting occurs as you intended without restriction.
SoundSwitch gives DJs the tools to create their own lighting displays and the connection to play these back without compromising the freestyle nature of their live performance. It puts live control in the DJs hands and enables them to play any song, in any order, while their lighting remains in sync.
Not to be forgotten, SoundSwitch opens up new creative possibilities for lighting designers as well as it enables them to explore tighter integration with the artists/DJs they are working with. SoundSwitch allows customisation and automation, it is just a question of how this comes together and when it comes time to go live they can sit back and en joy the show knowing they have put the work in already.
SoundSwitch is a great tool for Lighting Techs, Mobile DJs, Club DJs, Tour DJs as well as DJs who play along side vocalists and MCs.
