///// So yeah, as most of you figured out, this was our April Fools' joke for 2015. See you next year, everyone! /////
One of the exciting new features in Res 4.2 is speech recognition. That’s right, you can now control Resolume just by saying what you want to do.
Check the video for an overview of the basic controls and a some hints on the new special effect commands.
Of course speech recognition needs a clear sound signal, so when using it in a club environment, it’s best to ask the DJ to turn the music down. Comment »

SINCE WE ARE STILL GETTING EMAILS ABOUT THIS, THREE YEARS AFTER IT WAS POSTED: THIS CONTROLLER IS NOT REAL. IT'S AN APRIL FOOLS' JOKE. IT'S JUST A TRICK USING PROJECTION MAPPING. THERE'S A PICTURE AT THE END SHOWING HOW WE DID IT.
Which is the best Midi controller for Resolume? If we had a penny for every time we are asked that question, we would be
sipping caipirinhas developing Resolume on a sunny beach island resort.
But now we can finally answer it. This one!
This is a prototype of the upcoming custom Resolume controller that we have developed together with Akai.
It’s got full support for the Midi protocol, but the truly great thing is that it also has video feedback. The buttons are custom OLED buttons, that receive video data via OSC. So you can actually see what’s playing, and see a preview of your clips, with the active clip in full motion. Thumbnails are even updated in realtime when effects are applied.
All this OSC is actually controlled by the processor of an AR.Drone helicopter. After Bart ’accidentally’ broke ours (by landing it upside down from a first story building), we found out its internal motherboard actually runs Linux. We took this out and put it in the Midi controller with our own custom Linux distribution on it. This allows the controller to receive pixel data wirelessly with little to no delay.
We truly believe that this is the future of controllerism!
//EDIT April 2nd//
So to prevent people from sending emails asking about this controller two years from now, here's a little making of shot. Check out that duct tape action.
So yes, it was a hoax. Hope you all had a good laugh about it, and see you next year Comment »
Oh yes, you read it right. Resolume 2.41 is now available for the iPad!!! Mix clips the way you were used to from back in the day, on your o so shiny mobile touchscreen.
When you think about it, it actually makes you wonder why it took us so long to get it together:
1. Resolume 2.41 was made for 1024x768 resolution screens, which just happens to be exactly the size of the iPad display.
2. Resolume 2.41 doesn't use the GPU as much as Avenue, so even a device that doesn't have a modern GPU like the iPad can run it.
With the recent release of the iPad 2, we now can let the dual cores handle the work. And this makes things fly like nobody's business. That's not to say R2.41 iPad Edition won't work on the first version.
The cool part of this (for us geeks) is that we did not rewrite Resolume 2 to run on iOS, ooh no that would have been too easy. We looked at the Win32 API calls that Resolume 2 makes and we wrote a partial Windows emulator that runs on iOS so normal Windows programs can run on the iPad and iPhone. This concept is similar to WINE on linux and could theoretically be used to run other Windows on iOS too.
Check out the teaser video, and then head over to the iTunes store!
