Jonathan Bernbaum, the visual artist known as Circuit5 Visuals was "a weirdo who liked to tickle every synapse with arrangements of light and juxtapositions of crazy images", as described by his brother.
Jonathan split his time VJ-ing his beloved Bay Area undergorund and touring internationally with Knife Party, Markus Schulz and V Squared Labs. He died tragically at the age of 34 in the Oakland Ghost Ship Fire, December 2nd, 2016.
All the proceeds from this pack go to the Jonathan Bernbaum Memorial Scholarship Fund at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, a scholarship dedicated to supporting students exploring performative and experimental visual art.
Buy the pack and support the cause!

NDI is updated to version 4 which is faster and has better compression. Playback via SMPTE is a lot smoother. Installing new FFGL plugins does not require a restart anymore and when FFGL plugins are missing in a composition you now see a warning. Last but not least Alley can now download Resolume footage for you!
When you buy footage in the Resolume shop you have to download a lot of zip files, unzip them when they are downloaded and then copy the files to your desired location. That all requires a lot of time clicking with your mouse and let's be honest we would all prefer to spend our precious mouse clicks on something else. So now Alley can download and unzip footage packs for you! Log in to your shop account and you'll now find a Download with Alley button on your footage packs, click it (after you have installed 7.0.5) and Alley will take care of everything. Huge timesaver!
NDI is updated to version 4 which is faster and has improved image quality. NDI 16 bit streaming is not yet supported.
Improved FFGL Plugin Management
When you install an FFGL plugin you do not have to restart Resolume anymore to make sure it shows up in the interface. Now FFGL plugins will show up in Resolume instantly even when it's already running. And when you open a composition that uses FFGL plugins that are not installed you'll see a red warning to let you know they are missing. Install them and you're good to go, no restart required.
Smoother SMPTE Playback
While working on the SMPTE above 24 hours in version 7.0.4 we saw some more room for improvement. So now video playback is a lot smoother when controlled by SMPTE.
NVIDIA Application Profile
We now install an NVIDIA application profile to make sure the driver settings are optimal for Avenue & Arena.
Swap Input Output Shape in the Advanced Output
Make the input shape of a slice the output shape and the output shape the input shape. Get it? Neither do we But this is sometimes quite handy when you're creating complex mappings with various virtual screens. Right-click a slice and you'll find this option in the slice popup menu.
Select "Check for Updates.." in the Avenue or Arena menu and it will self-update. Or head over to the Downloads page.
We are happy to welcome to the label Lilian Döring and Tomika.
Lilian Döring is a motion graphic designer from Brazil, who got us trapped in a TimeCapsule and left us there wondering if infinite exists. Tomika prepared for us Gussshy, a pack of colored loops perfect for the peak of the night.
Last but not least, Unit44 is back with his version of NewBabylon. Check out how detailed this guy's work is!

Halloween celebrates life, death, and the fun we have in between. So here is a pack of sleek loops made by VJ Galaxy with this occasion. They are not creepy at all, just check them out!
On the same theme, we have Afterlife, a pack of loops hot as hell. O artist, we ask thee to multiply the gifts of thy render.
And here is something that will never die, for sure: the black and white mix of the freshly released Progressions2. The black and white lovers live forever as well.

Resolume 7.0.4 includes many bug fixes but also some minor new features. You can rename effects, remove a lot of columns in one go and each deck can now have it's own number of columns so you do not end up with a lot of empty columns at the end of decks anymore. DMX shortcuts can now be limited to a certain range and SMPTE timecode goes to infinity and beyond!
Rename & Reorder Effects You can now rename an effect when you right-click it and you can simply grab an effect by it's header and drop it to reorder, no need to use the confusing "hamburger menu" icon to reorder anymore.
Remove Columns Every deck in a composition does not have to have the same number of columns anymore. Each deck can now have it's own number of columns and this keeps your decks nice and tidy. It's also very easy to remove a lot of columns now. Right click a column and you have the option to remove all columns before and after that column.
SMPTE Beyond 24 hours According to the SMPTE timecode specifications you're not allowed to send timecode above 24 hours, however it is technically possible to go higher, now Arena will accept timecode up to 35 hours. Thanks to Danny Purdue from Programfeed for requesting this.
DMX Shortcut Range You can now easily limit the range on a parameter for DMX shortcuts. For instance control the Scale from 100% to 200% instead of the full 0% to 1000%.
