Hands-On Expression — Play Video Like a Musical Instrument

Presenting a breakthrough product that integrates the flexibility of software with the hands-on ease of hardware. Edirol’s “motion dive .tokyo performance package” consists of the renowned visual software “motion dive .tokyo” bundled with Edirol’s MD-P1, a dedicated control console that connects via USB. Together, this package takes visual performances to the next level using intuitive DJ mixer-like controls such as a crossfader and knobs.

DJ-Style Visual Performance

Just like taking two musical tracks and fading them back and forth, scratching or adding effects, the idea is the same with motion dive. Use the smooth A/B Fader to alternate between channel A and B, scratch the clips rhythmically with the Scratch controls, and use the front-panel knobs to control color-EQ effects and BPM. Select video clips quickly by dragging and dropping them into the A and B output channels, or by using the large dial and Channel buttons on the controller.

Audio & Visual Collaboration

With motion dive, the visuals can played and remixed in real time along with the music. The performances can be recorded and played back as one piece of artwork. Motion dive receives MIDI messages, therefore MIDI-compatible instruments can be connected to the controller unit for live video triggering.

Physical Control

The MD-P1 is a dedicated physical controller designed for the “motion dive .tokyo performance package.” Connection to a computer is taken care of by a single USB cable. Power is supplied via USB to make set up simple, eliminating the need for an external power supply. The operation panel has dedicated buttons and controllers that allow you to smoothly assign clips and freely mix channels A and B. Expression that requires continuous, minute changes that are difficult to control using a mouse are handled easily and intuitively by turning knobs. Enjoy direct and spontaneous control, similar to that of a DJ mixer.

Images from MIDI

Images can be automatically generated from note and velocity information input via external MIDI device, such as Roland’s V-Drums, synthesizers, and sequencers. Create performances that synchronize music with images for stunning visual effects.

Wide-Ranging File Support

Motion dive accepts QuickTime movies and most picture formats from digital cameras, as well as AVI and MPEG files, and Macromedia Flash content. To get started right away, motion dive comes with a video library created by top professional VJ artists. Motion dive is compatible with Mac (OSX) and PC (XP/2000).
