Computer Systems

| |

Need a computer system for live visuals or real time audio performance? I can help you choose the best system for your needs and budget be it a bespoke rackmount PC, a SFF portable or a laptop system. I'm happy to do as much or as little as you want, from fully specifying and building a fully custom PC to simply tweaking an existing machine to squeeze the last drops of performance out of it.

I've built and specified computers for numerous people from Coldcut to Def Leppard! Systems I've built have run art installations in hostile environments for months at a time with no crashes or downtime. I've rebuilt laptops for people a day before major gigs in front of thousands when they have had no luck with their official tech support contracts. I've specified and setup laptop systems for video and music workshops with disillusioned teenagers.

Custom MIDI Hardware

| |

I create custom MIDI hardware controllers for VJs and DJs to control hardware video mixers and VJ software. A few variations of these controllers are available including add on fader boxes which sit in front of DJ mixers as well as fully internal modifications to provide direct MIDI output from the DJ mixers crossfader.

Why do you want a MIDI out from a DJ mixer?
Currently there are no Audiovisual mixers in production that are suitable for advanced AV performance. The Edirol V4 has no audio at all - the Panasonic mixers lack features such as headphone preview and PFL metering which makes them unsuitable for beatmixing or other applications which require the ability to preview the audio.
