Video mixing is nothing new, but the sister discipline to DJing is a world unto itself. Some brave attempts have been made at merging the two, but a preferred platform for doing so has yet to be decided. Serato Scratch Live has the Video SL plug-in, and MixVibes came up with VFX control, but you can still get in on the game using your DJ MIDI controller to both mix the tunes and the visuals.
Create the perfect mix using decks one and two, then provide the visuals on decks three and four, mapping them to one of the many MIDI-capable VJ software tools (Arkaos or MixVibes VFX etc). Why not go the whole hog and control the lighting too (again possible through MIDI)? But if you've got to this stage, then you probably know your controller better than the manufacturer does - and we want tickets to come and see you play.
