NestDrop - Milkdrop for VJ's

For the last 6 months I've been working with a friend to turn Milkdrop into a tool for VJ-ing. We are proud of the result and excited to share it with you.

NestDrop outputs high-resolution high-fps visuals which react in realtime to the music. Also Spout is supported, so you can link the visuals into your favorite mapping software. Since the Milkdrop engine is at the core you can easily import your own Milkdrop presets. Use any audio source to drive the visuals, even live audio.

On February 22 NestDrop will be released.
More info - www.nestimmersion.ca

Key Features
• Up to 4 video decks with Spout at the same time
• High rez output: 4k @ 60fps
• Live preview and static thumbnails of presets
• Auto-change presets based on beat detection
• Search for presets by name
• Easily map your own hotkeys
• Mark your favorites with 5 colors of stars
• Create multiple queue windows
• Includes curated library of 1900 presets

Something noteworthy for this community: The Spout Sprites feature has extended Milkdrop beyond its original design. Sprites have always been a feature built into Milkdrop, but we tweaked it so that a Spout video stream can playback within a Sprite. This enables all sorts of wild possibilities such as mixing together different preset visuals, nesting the visuals within the actual drawing process, importing external Spout video streams, and creating feedback loops. Here is a tutorial I created which explores some of these possibilities.

We also set up a Reddit community dedicated to NestDrop.
