This is not an Audio Effect.

Laser Beat is a plugin that works as an audio effect -- insomuch that Audio Effect plugins have access to the audio stream in Virtual DJ. The Laser Beat plugin does not EFFECT (i.e. "modify") the audio as many other Audio Effects do. However, Laser Beat does internal processing, and sends both audio and beat related information to Pangolin's laser software such as QuickShow and BEYOND.

Since QuickShow is sold in popular music stores in the United States and Europe, there are currently more than 60,000 QuickShow users. Many of them are not aware of Virtual DJ. We can say the same thing about Virtual DJ users not aware of QuickShow. Nevertheless, there is certainly a large "cross over" for both programs to appeal to the same users, many of whom are DJs.

QuickShow and the plugin have been in testing since April 2016. There are already some discussions about it here on Virtual DJ forums here:

and here:

You can see a video we made at the Prolight + Sound tradeshow (forwarded directly to the most relevant part of the video) here:

So far it has been received with great enthusiasm. Please let us know if you have any questions about this plugin.

Best regards,

William Benner
