Super Pikix is a free VJ software for the Caanoo

It features all the classic VJ softwares options. It's a deluxe version of Pikix, with many improvements and new features.

The Caanoo?

The Caanoo is an open-source, Linux-based handheld video game console and media player created by GamePark Holdings of South Korea. (source: wikipedia)

But I thought a MacBook Pro was the best for live visuals...

...And it's also very precious, so leave it home when performing for that no budget warehouse rave party...
Just bring your Caanoo and show you can do more with less!

Super Pikix

Quick instructions


Extract the "superpikix_v1_delicate_pig.zip" archive on your hard drive, copy its content into your Caanoo SD card in to the "apps" folder. You can extract it anywhere else on your card but then it won't be displayed in the Caanoo's quick launch screen.

Run Super Pikix via the App quick launch screen, or via the explorer if you've copied it in another location

First mix

The archive includes a few demo footages, ready for a quick test.

On the title screen, choose "mix", press B to load the top playlist, et voilà!

Video out

Connect your Caanoo and your projector/video mixer with the Caanoo's TV out cable (not included with the console, don't forget to buy it separately!)

From the "video out" menu, choose PAL or NTSC

Then copy your .k17 / .k18 files into the "video" folder of your Super pikix installation.

Edit your playlists

From the Super Pikix Start screen, choose "edit ". Create and edit your playlists using the Caanoo's stylus.
