Software developer Oliver Woodman has released version 1.0 of NoiseCradle, a semi-automated software VJ. NoiseCradle combines audio driven visualizations with user imported images and videos. By constructing a graph of visual building blocks the user is able to quickly and easily construct custom visualisations, which can be branded for a particular DJ, venue or event. NoiseCradle is driven by audio captured in real-time from a microphone, line-in or media player.
Noise Cradle is an advanced audio visualisation, capable of rendering 3D visuals in response to audio from any audio source. It is ideal for use at parties, in bars and clubs, and at festivals and other live music events. The ability to import videos, textures and logos allows the user to brand the visual output. For example a mobile DJ can easily setup Noise Cradle to periodically display their roadshow name over the visualisation.
Based around an intuitive user interface for visualisation customisation and control, Noise Cradle uses advanced audio processing and beat recognition to create visuals that complement any music. The software has an extensive range of customisable audio visualisation scenes, effects and transitions, and also offers users the ability to import video, textures and logos. Support for live video sources (e.g. webcams) is also provided to allow DJs to incorporate live event footage into their visual mix.
NoiseCradle is available for personal (£30) and commercial (£100) use.
