Resolume 7.8 | Control & Monitor Arena, Avenue and Wire via the REST-API

With the REST-API and built-in webserver we're introducing by far the most powerful way to monitor and control Avenue, Arena and Wire. With the REST-API you can get and set any parameter value in the composition and you can even get clip thumbnail images! Communication via the REST-API can be done in almost any programming language, but most importantly in Javascript. This way you can for instance control and monitor your composition and Wire patches via a web-page on a tablet or phone. Checkout this support article for all the details and links to the API documentation.

We have created a few examples that are very useful already. For Arena & Avenue there is a basic clip triggering webpage that is a great companion next to your MIDI controller to trigger your most important clips, you can easily identify them because they show the clip thumbnail and highlight when they are playing just like Avenue & Arena. There is also a basic recreation of the Arena & Avenue interface in a webpage to show that you can control almost anything.

For Wire there is a basic example that shows the input parameters for the current patch so you can preview and control it from any web browser, including your phone.

These examples are bundled with 7.8 and run out of the box but they are also open source projects so you can use them as a starting point for your own custom interfaces.
You enable the REST-API and webserver in the Preferences.

Resolume Workshop @ St. Joost Art Academy

Last week Resolume went to the St. Joost School of Art & Design in the city of Den Bosch to share some of our Resolume-knowledge with the students there. VJ Liza Renee invited us to collaborate with her on a media art-focused Resolume workshop. We are always interested in using Resolume for more than VJ’ing so we got hyped and joined in on the workshop.

We started out with teaching the basics: composition, clips, layers, sources, effects and more effects and more effects and then some more effects. After that, we continued exploring the basics of projection mapping as most of the students were interested in this subject.

After the students got to grips with the basic operation of the software they each went their own way in making an installation. The focus here was on experimentation instead of producing, which led to a chill vibe in which the students could freely make while having support from us and Liza.

We had an amazing day with the students and saw some interesting results.
Each artist took their own approach to making their work, some used Arena to mix their existing video work, others jumped on projection mapping and there was even some experimentation with Wire.

We are looking forward to doing more workshops in the future.
If you are interested in a Resolume workshop at your educational institution feel free to contact us at

New footage! Lior Sadeh Studio, Data Ghost, Kongfoo Motion

Take a tour around the city where instead of rats, you can find music players. It's called
Collage City Trip and it's the latest release by Lior Sadeh Studio.

The Matrix vibes are coming from Data Ghost who's looking for the Lost Signal.

And to finish this release on a more optimistic note, Kongfoo Motion recorded some decadent dancers and packed them under the name of Decadance.

New footage! MIKVIZ, Albertus Luki, Unit44

When you think of the opposite of fresh and vital what do you see? Because we see MIKVIZ's loops, which are permanently fixed, like they were written in Stone.
I don't know about you, but we certainly like some colorful and playful moments. And this time, Albertus Luki makes us happy with Discube, a pack of loops inspired by Rubik's cube.
Last but not least, Unit44 is again thinking of the real techno heads and is providing them (us :?: ) Enter6, the latest member of the Enter family.
