Getting started

Requires Ubuntu 20.04. Other Requirements: primary screen with resolution of at least 1920x1080 and a graphics card with drivers able to run version 4 of OpenGL shaders. Suggest installing the latest graphic drivers and recommend the system uses an SSD Drive.

Support: There is a simple, currently not heavily used, support forum here, which has some useful FAQ's.  You can also make contact via Twitter / YouTube or email

Documentation Note: Quite a lot of the details are often out of date here, while development continues.

Overview of Interface

The interface has 4 main sections (working from top to bottom).

  1. Screens and Buses previews
  2. The Rack
  3. Slot details and FXStack setup
  4. Library, Aux Rack and Externals

Most of the interaction with the interface can be performed by drag-and-dropping items, although it has become a lot more touch screen friendly over time as this is how I gig with it.

Other notes

While VIDIFOLD is running:

1. the mouse pointer will automatically be hidden if you move it over any screen outputs.

2.  the keyboard response only happens while the mouse cursor is above the application.
