The small setup, for use with the band(s) and super spontaneous stuff. Case is a Pittsburgh Modular Move 104, and the rest of the modules are a Make Noise voice consisting of dual STO's, Optomix, MMG, OG Wogglebug, and Maths:

The annex. For when I've got the luxury of just doing visuals and want a whole shitpot of CV sources and possibilities to screw around with:

Here's my current rig. Mainly into abstract video processing. Some circuit bent gear, some to be modified.. The wood box in the middle is a recently completed project, featuring two blur settings, a feedback looper that interacts great with other video processors, and a Karl Klomp style dirty mixer.

Vectrex Vector Monitor, a few FPVcameras being TBCed to a Visual Cortex.
The rest is NLC audio stuff.

Its a lot of fun. I played out with this rig for the first time the other night.

If you have a Vectrex and you want a box for it...

This is my patch setup for a performance next Saturday.

Shape generation from mixed Ramps into an EHX Ring Thing (to give it motion) then into a Dr. Octature where I take three of the phase-shifted outs into the CVE for colorization. All of that goes into a self-feedbacking WJ-AVE5 and that is fed into another feedbacking V-1.[/img]

Lots of options, colors, shapes & textures in a setup that'll fit into a milk crate.

In motion it looks like this: https://www.instagram.com/p/_N81T7jRUs/

For the past 3 years I have been telling myself that I would post pics when "I'm done" :hihi: (and this pic is about 3 years old)

My goal with my set up is to be able to do video art along with dub music at the same time. It's been fun so far! Bottom case is primarily video with the top case being audio.

In addition to my main video synth, I've been experimenting with small lissajous modular cases. Live streaming of Vectrex a/v performances here: http://movingpictures.gallery/live

Here's my humble new live setup – I just started building the synth, so there's still a lot of space in that little case! Currently it's just a Visual Cortex, Mapper, MATHS and Moddemix. Looking forward to expanding it!

In this setup, it's fed with samples mixed in GLMixer on the laptop, also including input from a camera (not shown, because that's what's taking the photo) through the HDMI capture card.

The beamer is a nice big 6500lm Canon (well, actually a Canon branded Sanyo) that I got used for a remarkably favourable price.

Lots of fun!
