Vuo / VDMX / Ableton Live audiovisual programming @ online

Huseyin Kuru, creative director of Motus.Lumina, will be teaching an online workshop via one-on-one Zoom meetings. With 12 hours of instruction, the workshop will give each participant an in-depth look at audiovisual programming, starting from the basics. The workshop will introduce participants to node-based visual programming with Vuo and explain how to create audiovisual compositions using Vuo, VDMX, and Ableton Live.

Audio Synthesizer

A "modular synth" style setup exploring some of Vuo's audio/soundmaking tools.


  • Two sets of "oscillators" (detuned)
  • FM operator
  • Modulation (envelopes and LFO's)
  • Sequencer (repeating random)
  • Key/scale note quantizer
  • Wavefolder
  • Vuo's ring modulator
  • "Pan law" crossfader
  • A "placeholder" for visuals

To do: stereo

Here's another spectrum plug I made using a different approach. Unfortunately this is even less accurate, but it looks fun and is useful as a visualizer. Here I have the "Calculate Amplitude for Frequencies" set to "quadratic", which arranges the bin values decently enough that they can be processed in an even row (In the previous composition I spaced the bins exponentially). With the bins spaced linearly they can then be processed as scalable rectangle layers. If anyone knows a good way of taking the bins and then reprocessing them into more accurate data then please let me know.

This is a frequency spectrum I made for VJ use, particularly in Resolume. My aim was to make a spectrum that would be fun to watch mostly, rather than being super accurate. I think it makes a good base source and then you can add effects from there, ie colours, feedback etc.
