Dutch software developer Showsync shared this introduction to Videosync, described as ‘a visual engine for Ableton Live’.

Videosync enables you to treat video as audio inside Ableton Live. You can create visuals using Warp Markers, Racks, Macros, Simpler, Automation, Modulation and more.

Videosync’s instruments generate content intended as a source for mixing, blending, keying or displacement. Simpler rhythmically triggers your video content, and the External In instrument fetches input from Syphon or any external video source.

Other features include:

  • Multiple outputs – Use Live’s Return & Master channels as Syphon outputs, allowing up to 13 channels of video output into other applications.
  • Networked playback – Increase redundancy and spread workload in your live shows by running Videosync on a separate computer.
  • ISF shaders – Support for Interactive Shader Format, and ships with a plugin SDK to easily develop your own video plugins.
  • Native video playback – Uses macOS high-performance video playback frameworks, to render video at the highest resolutions and frame rates that your system supports.
  • Format support – Support for all standard video formats, as well as HAP.
  • Native Apple Silicon support – Videosync ships as a universal binary for Intel and Apple Silicon.
