Description

Fully based and generally created from Ayumi Hamasaki's Dome Tour 2001, this title gives you untied hands to play with the music videos and re-mix some of the songs to your preference, with ability to save everything for later listening.

The main part of the package is "A Visual Mix" which features five full music videos by Hamasaki Ayumi, which are respectively: Evolution, Never Ever, A Song for XX, Vogue, and Trauma. Each of them will roll with 'auto change' option, which you can set to 'manual change' at any time, and take control of the corresponding cameras and visual effects. Depending upon the song and the setting, you'll be able to change the view position of the camera, zoom in and out, rotate it by 360°, and slide from one side to another. Holding either of L1, L2, R1, or R2 button while switching cameras will create an extra morphing effect. In addition to that, you can create various visual effects with your analog stick by moving it to one of the four major sides. These effects also vary on scene and song, and vary from various picture distortions, lightning and fire effects, falling leaves, stars, flying butterflies, to golden dust traces Ayumi can leave as she moves while singing.

The second part is "Ayu-Mix Studio" which contains two tracks: Unite!, and Endless Sorrow, respectively. There you can play with audible part of the songs, and can follow the rhythm of drums, bass, synth, and switch it as you like. You can try to re-mix the song fully by yourself and create the new mode, or can select one of the three preset version each song has.

In addition to that, there is also "Ayu Browser" with its own design and options included, but doesn't make much use if you don't have internet access.
