The work of a VJ is to select and show images that go along with music.
Let's start with the basic operation of choosing two movie clips and playing them back.
 
 
 
 
Press the MAIN button of Channel A (left side) under ASSIGN on the motion dive .tokyo console.
Turn the encoder and select a movie clip from the library.
*To move the encoder and other knobs, drag them up and down.
When the ENTER button is pressed, the movie clip will be set to Channel A.
Press the MAIN button of Channel B (right side) under ASSIGN and follow steps 2 and 3 to set a different movie clip to channel B.
Press A/B SWITCH. Each time it is pressed the onscreen playback of movie clips set to Channels A and B will alternate.
 
 

The repetition of the above steps is your first step as a VJ.
Next, while actually playing some background music, you can move on to some serious practicing!

motion dive .tokyo Performance Package can be used to play back song data in addition to video clips.

 
 
Press the List button located next to the song name on the MUSIC PLAYER.
Click the name of a song from the list after the list of song data you prepared is displayed.
The song data plays back when you press the Play button on the MUSIC PLAYER.
 
 
Select a video clip that matches the spirit of the song, and try switching it with accurate timing.
When the music and video are synchronized in a way that feels good, you can instill powerful emotions in your audience in a way not possible with sound alone. This is the magic of a VJ. First, let's master the basics so you can become a VJ, too!
 
 
* When using the actual product, you can operate multiple knobs at the same time more intuitively.
* The actual product contains over 500 onboard video clips so you can enjoy doing real VJ techniques right out of the box.
* Using the actual product, you can import and play back video clips and song data that you produced.
* The console does not display when using the actual product.
 
Have you mastered basic operation? VJ playing gets more and more interesting once you understand the basics.
Now that your appetite has been whet for more, pro-level VJ techniques will be introduced.
 
 
-
There is no art in just quickly switching images, right?
When more is needed, use buttons FD 1 to 3 (autofader) to select the fade time and then press A/B SWITCH. Smooth video transitions are made using FD 1, which is fast, FD 2, which is slow, and FD3, which is even slower.
 
-
Here's something to use when you want to make switching between videos even more impressive! Move the A/B Fader, located at the center of the console, left and right in beat with the song.
For example, move it aggressively for a “hard” song and move it slowly when the song is calm. Expression is added to the video, even though all you are doing is switching.
 
-
From time to time, put the crossfader at center so both videos are overlapped, giving you a new video!
Seek out cool new original variations by overlapping various videos.
 
-
Press a Scratch button in time with the beat. The video will synchronize to the music.
 
-
Rotate the Total Fader Control knob to the right and make the screen flash bright. Turn it to the left to make in fade out to black. Make the screen flash when the song gets exciting and make it fade out when the sound softens. In this way, add dynamics to video as you would with music!
 
-
Turn the Assignable Control knob. Look … “scratching” is done with the video!
 
 
The techniques introduced here are only a fraction of those available. Using the actual motion dive .tokyo console, you can challenge yourself with many more techniques.
Okay, now let's come up with some original VJ techniques and play something really cool!
 
 
Two common misperceptions:
• “I'm a keyboardist and that has nothing to do with video.”
• When drumming live, my hands and feet are engaged, so how can I be expected to operate video equipment?”
V-LINK to the rescue!
You can perform with video, too, by using motion dive .tokyo Performance Package together with the V-LINK function built into instruments such as Roland's Fantom-X and V-Drums.
So next, let's try out the V-LINK function!
 
 
 
 
Press the V-LINK button at the bottom of the screen. A keyboard is displayed.
(On the actual product, a MIDI cable would be connected between the MIDI in port of the console and the MIDI out port of the device with the V-LINK function.)
Press the MIDI note button located left of the keyboard, and then press some keys on the keyboard.
Images of notes are displayed on the screen at the same time piano notes sound.
 
 
It's pretty amazing to see images displayed when simply playing the keyboard.
Also, image variations are included that are perfect for drums.
 
 
   
 
With the V-LINK button pressed, change to drum sounds by pressing the Drums button.
Press the "." key on the MIDI NOTE plug-in located at the top right. This selects variations for the drum.
Press the MIDI note button located left of the keyboard, and press some keys on the keyboard.
Words that describe the sounds appear at the same time the drum sounds play.
   
 
If V-Drums are used, images that match the sound of you actually hitting the kick drum, snare, or cymbal fly onto the screen. Now you can see that even drummers, who have both hands and feet occupied, can perform with images.
 
 
motion dive .tokyo Performance Package makes it possible to perform with images by just playing an electronic instrument.
It's meant for cutting-edge musicians just like you who are seeking new modes of expression.
Take on the challenge of doing a live performance with video, and put yourself a step ahead!
 
 
* The actual product comes with 27 variations for the keyboard and 9 for the drums.
* The keyboard does not display when using the actual product. Also, piano and drum sounds do not play back.
