So my friend borrowed this video processor off me and made this cool video for his music project!

Anyone care to share some bend points? I can't find any infos about how to bend these reliably.
What model do you have have I have some pics of bend points :tu:
Id love some help in this regard too if possible

Also interested in bend tips. A few years ago I threw away the guts of one of the Archer boxes so that I could use the enclosure for a Gristleizer (oops). Knobs were probably from something else.


But I have another one lying around, probably the video processor and not the color one.

I've had a Video Color Processor kicking around for a while. I will definitely be attempting some kind of modular integration soon.

You wouldn't happen to still have this schematic? It appears the link ins kaput. Might try to grab one of these units and fiddle around with it next once I figure out how to bend the video enhancer unit.

Reviving an old thread... I'm also interested in the schematic, or any other you have so I can try this myself, but links look old/dead.
