Getting 'in touch' with Resolume

In case you hadn't heard, there recently was an important memo on what's hot and what's not from the VJ fashion police. It clearly stated that for the fashionable VJ in autumn 2010 midi controllers are a definite no-no. For those wanting to be seen VJ'ing in style, the iPad is the must-have accessory in your setup.

So of course not wanting you to look outdated at your gigs, we thought we'd round up what's going on on the iPad/TouchOSC front:

First up is Docmotion2010, who rocks out an effects heavy iPad setup:

He doesn't give a lot of info, but we're predicting that using the iPad as a cover for that unstylish keyboard is going to be the trend for 2011.

Then for those who want to get their fingers dirty themselves (but looking super hip in the process), look no further than the layout from Digital Gigalow, a two-in-one solution, allowing control over both Ableton Live and Resolume.

Another complete layout comes from dBiz, which can be downloaded here. Be sure to check out the demo video to see how to score bonus style points by controlling Resolume with one hand, and a having a smoke with the other.

Of course this list wouldn't be complete without a shout out to the pioneers of the Touch style, who risked their reputations by venturing into then unknown areas of VJ fashion. Big up to Martin/GradeK, whose iPhone/TouchOSC/OSCulator mash up helped pave the way for us all.

And last but no least, we wouldn't leave you without this video by TIGERcat. After watching this lovely performance, there are simply no more excuses for looking unstylish on stage.

That's it from us. If you have any other hip iPad layouts or cool videos to share, be sure to let us know by leaving a reply!

TouchOsc for the win, I'm now waiting for the Android version he's building.
Also i'm still hoping for a app that can not only touch Resolume but also interact with it (showing thumbnails and can be used as a preview monitor for example).

For the VJ fashion police: All those LCD screens shining in my face making me glow in the dark, so hopefully the next VJ fashion trend will be amoled...

I just modified the TouchOSC layout for Resolume by Martin Thobur/ Gradek to an iPad version. ...
