Imaginando has introduced VS – Visual Synthesizer, a new application for iOS, Mac & Windows that lets you use both audio and MIDI to control visual creations.
VS uses dynamic ‘materials’; a variety of different graphical elements, from glowing particle effects to warping geometric planes, each with its own set of attributes. These materials can be layered on top of each other, then triggered and manipulated by modulating their parameters, providing an interactive way to create complex compositions.
Using MIDI, VS can be ‘played’ just like a regular synth, including polyphony. Multiple simultaneous notes translate into multiple visual voices.
VS’ extensive parameter and modulation functionality provides the flexibility to create highly customizable visuals with complete control. Use any combination of LFOs, envelope generators, audio-reactive modulators and MIDI data, to transform your creations.
VS is also available as an audio plugin, bringing the world of creative visualization into your DAW.
- 8 Polyphonic visual layers
- 1 background layer with solid color/image/video (no modulations)
- 4 voices per layer
- 50 built-in materials
- Exclusive factory presents by @Perplex On
- 4 LFOs
- 2 EGs
- 4 Dual-mode Audio Modulators (peak and band)

Very interested in this one. Dear Synthtopia peeps can we get a link please? ( https://www.imaginando.pt/ ).
Here is the link https://www.imaginando.pt/products/vs-visual-synthesizer
I downloaded it and gonna give it a spin, the real question can you make you own, like in https://magicmusicvisuals.com/, which is a great digital visual synth or is Imaginando just a playback machine, that one can tweak, like audio samples in Ableton. So is this media hype or a fun toy to call it an instrument you need to be able to make your own patches.
I think the answer is no you cannot create your own “materials” that can be modified with VS. It does allow you to have a custom video background but it cannot be modified.
Magic Music Videos looks a lot more powerful but likely has a steeper learning curve. Looks like the two products are geared to different types of people.
I tried this out, but it’s terribly shallow. The term ‘visual synthesizer’ is misleading. At best this is a simple visualizer that doesn’t look that great to be honest. It might be cheap but it’s also a subscription based product and is not worth it in my opinion.
Did you miss the link in the article? It worked for me.
