Vj Fader’S Fadertouch Touchscreen a/V Interface Lets Audience See What He’S Playing

by Paul Strauss

Live audio-visual artist VJ Fader tipped me off about this cool visual interface he built for manipulating music and images in real-time.


The faderTouch 3.0 isn’t just your run-of-the-mill sequencer. Nope, the unique portable device features an innovative rear-projection system that allows not only VJ, but his audience to watch the on-screen action. By installing a bright projector inside a briefcase, and aiming it at an angular projection screen, the display can be viewed from either side.


In addition to the projector, the screen has an infrared touch panel overlay which allows him to interact with his custom performance interface which was programmed using Processing, and acts as a MIDI controller for Ableton Live. Here’s a couple of videos showing off the system in action:

And if you check out the next clip, you can see the faderTouch being used in a live performance at the recent Wham Bam Thank You NAMM show- very cool indeed.

Like what you saw and heard? You can check out a whole bunch of VJ Fader’s performances over on his YouTube page.
