Video Surgeon v2.0
Todd, Michael & James, Inc (TMJ) release the updated version of their video analysis software - Video Surgeon.
Song Surgeon Review
Developed by the same team that brought us Song Surgeon, this software expands to video and audio processing, featuring video slow down, loop, pause and zoom.
A representative of TMJ described the software as "a new product that is changing the way Guitarists learn", and they don't appear to be bluffing. After having been satisfied with the performance of Song Surgeon, I expect this video analysis software to be a helpful tool for musicians of all levels. Version 2 brings improved slow motion, zooming, looping, freezing and frame-by-frame video analysis.
Video Surgeon is meant to be a valuable tool for teaching, training and learning music, and are also equally useful for other fields including dance, sports training and many more. It also comes with video editing, you can use it to trim sections that you want to skip and export this trimmed video for your own personal use. This extra features helps streamline your video learning process, which in the end helps speed up training.
For guitar players, the most obvious application for this software is for slowing down performance videos. It can slow down your favorite guitar player down to step frames so you can carefully see the right frets and strings being hit, along with other technique nuances including angle of pick attack, bending, vibrato and many more.
This kind of technology is usually reserved for professional musicians and athletes and is a staple of their training programs. Note that these professionals pay hundreds and even thousands of dollars just to get their video analysis systems running. With Video Surgeon, regular consumers can get the same benefits of professional video analysis, at a more accessible price point.
