Hi LPF... I would like to introduce you to my new application that has just been released for both OS X and Windows



It is called Maxwell, and it is a laser software synth / abstract generator. It supports direct output to an Ether Dream DAC - for real-time, live performance, and also supports saving output to an ILDA file - for import into any IDLA player. It also supports popping open the OpenGL preview window into a full-screen external window for use with Video Projector systems - for those who don't have an actual laser projector.

Here is a brief overview of the features:

  • 6 independent oscillators broken up into 2 discrete 3D waveform generators
  • Full hardware accelerated OpenGL preview window (can also route output to separate window for use in Video Projector/VJ setups)
  • Native support for Ether Dream DAC
  • LFOs which can be routed to modulate amplitude of each oscillator
  • Solid color output or modulatable color with HSL modulation (Hue, Saturation, Lightness)
  • FX section, including a translator, rotator, and duplicator, and scaler.
  • User adjustable blanking and dwell optimization
  • Record to ILDA file
  • MIDI Controller support with fully integrated MIDI learn capability

Here is a youtube video of a live performance I recorded - where I am using an AKAI APC-40mkII as a MIDI controller:
