Magic is a unique desktop application that gives you an intuitive, modular interface to create interactive animation and video effects for concerts, clubs, theater, movies, art installations, advertising, education, relaxation, and anything else you can imagine.

Magic is software for VJing, music visualization, video mixing, music video creation, and more.

Magic lets you design a variety of dynamic visuals from scratch, using many colorful and exciting effects:

  • Draw abstract geometric patterns that dance and spin according to audio volume and frequency
  • Display images and 3D models that move, rotate, and pulse with beats
  • Perform real-time video manipulation with multiple simultaneous movie files and live cameras
  • Render beautiful GLSL shaders and GPU-accelerated graphics synchronized to music

Magic compositions can be presented in full-screen mode for live performances, or exported to movie files for further editing or uploading to video sharing sites.

Magic responds to live audio and MIDI input and/or audio file playback.

Magic works well with virtually all types of live audio and MIDI sources, including microphones, turntables, guitars, synthesizers, drum machines, multitrack audio editors, hardware controllers, lighting control systems, and much more. Magic allows you to use multiple audio and MIDI inputs simultaneously, including support for multichannel audio devices — meaning that your visuals can react differently to every individual instrument in your rock band, jazz group, or classical ensemble. Magic also lets you import and play back audio files in a variety of formats so that you can design scenes for your pre-recorded material or your favorite artists' tracks.

If you're a musician, composer, DJ, VJ, video editor, graphic designer, animator, or any other kind of multimedia content creator, we urge you to give Magic a try. Download the free trial for Windows or OS X, and start "painting with sound" today!
