Alright, this is getting out of hand. A couple of modules on loan (like the PAG) but the current setup just got bolted in and live patched today, and I think it's gonna be gooooood....

Welcome to Muffs! If you don't yet have any video modules, I recommend contacting Phil at London Modular.

Welcome! There are a lot of approaches to video synthesis and they're well represented in the threads here...

I decided to split my video set up out from my main case containing my audio modules.

Picked up the make noise skiff.

Far right is the Telewizor v 2.0. Its just a LCD screen for previewing.

It has a few other functions as well like cv input for control over some built in generators.

That's quite a collection for only a year! :mrgreen: I highly recommend swan diving into playing live for a band or something, it's so fun and I'm sure you'll make great stuff. I did my first live gig shortly after buying a Visual Cortex, white sheet and projector. Mostly just rainbow diamonds and circles but dammit they were fun. :banana:

Finally finished my Gieskes portable case
it contains a 3trinsRGB+1c plus 2 comparators (from FetidEye), one with CV control and an LZX Output Expander, a Gieskes Oscillatoscope1c and the Gieskes HSS3jb

Cadet 21 system - :nana:
all panels will be dual , dual VCO / fader / Key generator etc.
The sync generator has a triple panel, with the video input and RGB encoder.
all connections are banana with BNC for video outputs
some mods are added to the panels:
squarewave outputs on the VCO, Chroma output on the Video input module.
The panel format is a bit bigger than eurorack.
