Video synthesis with Vsynth – 15, 22, 29th Sept & 6th Oct



Kevin Kripper is back for a re-edition of this successful Vsynth workshop. Video-conferencing from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Kevin teaches this series of 4 interactive workshops, starting from the fundamentals of video synthesis, and empowering students by the end of the series to perform live with sophisticated visuals.

Vsynth is among the most popular third-party module of Max, with over 13,000 downloads. Vsynth is a high level package of modules for Max/Jitter that together make a modular video synthesizer. Its simplicity makes it the perfect tool to introduce video synthesis and image processing. Since It can be connected to other parts of Max, other softwares and hardwares it can also become a really powerful and adaptable video tool for any kind of interactive video.

Level: Intermediate


  • Basic knowledge of Max and Jitter
  • Have Max 8 installed
  • Familiarity with audio-synthesis or computer graphics would be useful

In this series of 4 workshops, we’ll look at how to interconnect the different 80 modules that come with Vsynth, exploring video techniques and practices that can create aesthetics associated with the history of the electronic image but also complex patterns founded in some basic functions of nature.

Here’s what you’ll learn in each workshop:

8th Sept: video oscillators, mixers, colorizers

15th Sept: modulations (pm, fm, pwm, hue, among others)

22nd Sept: filters/convolutions and video feedback techniques

29th Sept: working with presets, scenes, audio and midi

Here's an overview of Vsynth.
