Electronic signals

Electric signals

a. Ramp: Beat Sync

Transmits the ramp, an analog signal representing the rhythm and phase position.

b. Sound envelope

Transmits a simplified audio signal in order to recover the impulses and achieve “Sound Reactive” work.

c. State​

Binary description of musical ambiance.

0 = Calm (Not enough music)

1 = Scan (Not enough rhythm detected)

2 = Math (Rhythmic, optimal)

3 = Lost (Not enough dynamics)



MIDI is a commonly used protocol for creating music.

Our devices provide beat sync via 2 MIDI signals:

MIDI Control Change - OUT

This MIDI output is the real-time reproduction of the ramp, with a value from 0 to 127, as an effects pedal would do.

MIDI Control Change - IN

This same parameter is used as input to synchronize a slave device.

MIDI Time Clock (MTC)

Also called the MIDI Beat Clock, this signal is in pulse form.

It allows synchronization of most digital instruments, as well as many light controllers.

Compatible with :

Arena, Sunlite, GrandMa

Synchronizing Resolume Arena with MIDI Time Clock

Touch Designer

Download our 4 example plugins to understand how to:

  • Get synchronization from MIDI signal

  • Generate dynamic curves

  • Apply effects to objects


The Velvet, (under development) will introduce serial transmissions, in order to customize edition and control.

We will provide you libraries and examples.

Serial port
