Digitalstage Introduces a Performance Pack for the Visual Art Scene
Digitalstage announced a new visual performance package for the visual artist and performing musicians. Designed in collaboration with Roland Corporation, the EDIROL gmotion dive .tokyo performance package is the combination of Digitalstage\'s world-famous motion dive .tokyo software and specially designed console, the MD-P1. This console represents the first time MIDI control of motion dive is possible.
motion dive .tokyo software takes a unique approach to visual performance by using a familiar DJ style interface that allows for the mixing of two visual sources with a DJ style crossfader, switches and effects.
Roland/EDIROL created a unique USB powered console specifically for motion dive .tokyo. The MD-P1 Console duplicates the software interface of motion dive and adds the benefit of being able to manipulate multiple parameters at the same time. The MD-P1 Console was conceived for use with notebook computers with side placement of connectors, and a small portable design. The MD-P1 Console also features a MIDI input port for connection of Roland/EDIROL instruments, workstations, and controllers.
Tomoyasu Hirano, President of Digitalstage, says, Digitalstage has been an innovator in the development of visual performance software since 1998 with our motion dive software. We are extremely pleased to join with the leader in audio and visual performance hardware, Roland/EDIROL, to bring a new era of software and hardware integration to the visual performance scene.
Kim Nunney, President of EDIROL Corporation North America, commented, gmotion dive .tokyo has achieved a great reputation in the visual performance scene and EDIROL is very excited to be able to create the first ever hardware controller for motion dive, providing a new powerful and affordable VJ and V-LINK performance solution to musicians with the gmotion dive .tokyo performance package. He continues, We are proud to partner with Digitalstage and are confident that this partnership product will open the world of visual performance to a whole new market.
