  • Electronic Musician (September 2008) – “Isadora is supported by a terrific manual (PDF only), an active users forum, and a number of getting-started tutorials. If you want to explore combining video and audio or are simply looking for unique ways to interconnect audio parameters, then give it a try. A free trial version, as well as educational pricing ($275) on the commercial version, makes it well worth a look.”
  • (September 2004) – “While other applications (such as ArKaos VJ, Max/MSP, and VDMXX) can create special effects for live performances, their complexity can be daunting; their performance, sluggish; and their effects, predictable. Isadora’s ease of use and flexibility make it a solid choice. Isadora allows you to manipulate prerecorded and live media – either with programmed effects and controls or on-the-fly via input from a keyboard or a mouse, a MIDI device, a microphone, or a video camera”
  • - Review by Jean Poole: ” Wonderful and well executed addition to the real-time video software field, and a great example of bridging the gap between artists and programmers. Versatile as you the time you put into it, and offers both an intuitive interface and progressive depth.”
  • – Rated 8.7 out of a possible 10
  • Digicult – Mark Coniglio: Building Blocks Isadora
