LZX Cadet Series (DIY/Assembled)

Post by Cata » Sun Oct 25, 2015 1:32 pm

Well these look pretty rad!
The LZX Cadet series' first two modules are now available for purchase. This series is one of 4HP utility modules available with multiple DIY/kit options and assembled. There will be many more of these. We're stocking all components and these are available for direct order only right now. The purpose of the series is to provide a community library/archive of easily readable video synth circuits published under the creative commons license - full documentation/repositories will be published soon. I'd been holding out on a larger release day, but we've got everything and we're ready to go -- so I'm making these two available immediately. If you have any questions, please e-mail me at lars@lzxindustries.net or comment below!!! P.S. If you are still waiting on us to fulfill a preorder, don't worry -- you haven't been forgotten and we're nearly through the backlog. Details here: http://www.lzxindustries.net/product-ca ... les/cadet/

They do look nice! I wish they'd replenish stock of existing modules though. Almost everything on their site is "Out of Stock"

Also, this:
There will be video input, sync generator and RGB encoder modules in the cadet series.
...fully featured diy banana video synth? :banana:

That was a stated goal of this round of things; something along the lines of enabling folks to make their own CGS Serge panels but for video.

w00t?! very interesting indeed.
I saw the pic of the green paneled prototypes but the red are nice too.
btw, out of curiosity, will the Xfader work for audio also??

So is the Cadet II RGB Encoder basically the same as the Color Time Base Corrector less the S-Video input and Y output???

Kinda been a little drum crazy here of late and have not had a chance.
I will jump on them. Noticed the linking for them on the LZX page seems a little funky. Anyone have links to the other pages other than the fader?

Need to gear up for another run of HD players too. People be askin' for em' :hyper:
