|The disco is getting medial: for a lot of clubs light and fog is
not enough anymore. More and more the DJ is supported by the VJ -
the Video-Jockey. They are presenting little pieces of
animated movies on TV-screens or video projectors, and mix
different sources together just like the DJ does.
M2V is being developed for the VJ - the software gives you the possibility
of a direct connection between the actual music and your video
output - it converts the audio signal from the DJ to a step-signal
for the movies.
Via a selection-menu the VJ can load any type of digital movie
into the system (the movie must be playable by Apple's QuickTime
technology). M2V provides a frequency-band (FFT- Fast Fourier
Transformation) and the VJ can choose a single frequency and set
some parameters to connect the peaks of the audio signal to the frame steps
of the movie.
M2V is currently in version 0.9 beta 2. This version is not in
public release, and is just for the Macintosh platform only at
