Imaginando has announced an update to the VS – Visual Synthesizer software for Windows, Mac and iPad that is designed to make it easy to create visuals that react to your music and MIDI.

VS version 1.1.0 is a major update with lots of exciting and hotly requested new features, including a built-in video recorder to export your visuals to disk as MP4 video files.

There has been huge demand from the community for this important feature, and after weeks of hard work, we’re delighted to now release it to you all. Two more massive new features that will be of particular interest to all you VJs and streamers out there, is the addition of Syphon (for Mac) and Spout (for Windows) video routing/output options! This really simplifies the process of using VS with other applications like OBS studio for example.

Recording your visuals is now really easy; just hit the record button to start recording, then press it again to stop – your video is automatically saved to your documents folder. Currently the recorded files are video only, but we’re looking to include audio in the future. To help manage the file size of your recordings, you can set ‘Recording Quality’ to low, medium or high, via VS’ settings menu. Another change to the settings menu is how VS manages output/display quality, with the new ‘Output Resolution’ option providing explicit pixel dimensions to choose from, for greater clarity and control of VS’ render quality.

In addition to other small bug fixes and optimizations, we’ve also added a safety message which is displayed when you open VS. Please take the time to read this important message, it can be easily disabled afterwards to prevent it appearing every time.

Previous updates also added support for HDMI on iOS (standalone only) and support for gif and webp files as background layer, as well as a new MIDI activity indicator, a reset material option to layer reset, and undo/redo to paste layer operations and layer/background reset.

VS is available for purchase for 99 EUR. You can also Rent To Own the software for 9.90 EUR per month, and you can try it for free.
