So they're discontinuing Visual Cortex and Vidiot! Still trying to figure out if Chromagnon completely supersedes Visual Cortex, doing everything the VC does, plus more.

i need one so much for my structure, but it's a hard price :( Just curious, why exactly for Structure? I was considering buying one but that was before the Structure, when I only had Visual Cortex and a few other LZX modules. Not that there would be no use for it, but since I got Structure, my work...

Also the whole LZX compatibility is now opening up those modules as a possibility, then before, primarily because of price. It would be great to know which ones would be the most immediately useful, in tandem. Yes, that would be another interesting discussion to have. I was just starting with LZX, ...

just wondering if it'll be a little too lo-fi for what I want to use it for (basically for recording videos and uploading on say Youtube or Vimeo, not gonna use it live). I would also love to know more the technical specifications of the Structure. But, as mildheadwound points out, the output video...

If I end up going for the Structure, I've been thinking of maybe pairing it with the LZX Sensory Translator (basically envelope followers) Keep in mind that Structure includes, in a way, its own envelope followers. From the Getting Started: “Running high speed inputs into these CV [CV3-CV5] will be...

Seeing all the LZX announcements and discussions that seem to take place in Facebook, more than in their own LZX forum, makes me almost want to check on FB. Until I remember all the FB hassle… So, thanks for spreading the info here! If LZX are not producing more Prismatic Ray, Loom seems like the mo...

From that latest announcement, what truly surprised me is the Prismatic Ray, especially when they say there are no planned replacements. So there would be no more video oscillators available in the future? :despair:

maybe I should just use that list so those not on FB 24/7 can know when I make an update! Yes, that would be nice.

If you did that and it's not loading, it's probably not in the correct format.
Yes, that was it. It works now. Thanks!

I just installed the new firmware and made a clip, but I can't figure out where it needs to go, for it to appear in the list of clips.

Where are you saving your clips?

Re: Black Lotus?

Any idea of how the fractally "Black Lotus" or "Electric Consciousness" patches are made in Lumen? Not sure I understand your question, since, if you click on the Patch tab, you can clearly see how Lumen has been patched, and on the Knobs tab, the settings for each knob. Although everything contrib...

After another hour of trying again another batch of cables and different volume levels, I found the ONLY cable that seems to work with my TEMPI: one of the first patch cables I bought, an old Doepfer . The volume didn’t seem to make any difference, it just needs to be loud enough. I’m making a big n...

I’m having a hell of a trouble updating my Tempi. The first time I updated it, when I just got it years ago, I didn’t have any problems, as far as I remember. Last year, I had to contact Make Noise, but by the time they got back to me, I had found a cable that worked. I was supposed to make a note o...

However it seems like this is likely to bring a multitude of problems, mainly compatibility of the OS with the hardware. So I'd rather go for a second hand ...

Yes, I assume it's not selling very well, but it still seems to me quite dramatic to discontinue it. I was going to sell mine, among other modules, not because I don't like it, but because of lack of space, but now that it has been discontinued, I think I'll keep it. I also have Rings, but to my ear...
