All of them!

A VSG + CVE, 4 VWGs, 2 TVFs, 2 VBMs, and 2 Voltage Interfaces.
I then stripped my audio modular of all it's juiciest control modules.
Low-Gain
Best of both worlds. I hope to start picking up some of their modules this year. So awesome!
lizlarsen
I can't wait to see what comes out of Johnny's system, those are some talented hands!!!

Here was my live setup for a gallery performance I did. There were several audio performers, and one mixer/conductor who sent me 2 dedicated Aux Bus outputs of his mixer to the Visionary. So he had control over which audio signals he was sending to the video, and to the speakers, at the same time. My job was to interpret what he was sending me visually. Oftentimes there were some wonderful moments where visual content would foreshadow audio content and vice versa. The laptop is being used as a preview monitor and to capture the video stream for later editing/viewing.

Modules are basic 8-module system, and Doepfer A-143-1 as extra modulation source.

This is a panorama I took at the Experimental TV Center a couple of years ago



And closer looks at the pieces:

The Apples and the Sandin IP



The other computers, tape decks, preview monitors, TBCs, and the yellow box on the right is my 8 channel sequencer and dual keyers



The main console: too much stuff to mention. Lots of my synth machines plus some commercial machines



The Paik/Abe colorizer and a shot of the rest of the studio space

lizlarsen
Beautiful photos of the center Dave!! I still can't believe I missed my chance to get in there.

8 channel sequencer and dual keyers


This was for sequential switching thru a set of camera inputs, is that right?
authorless
I would really like to start a video modular. I think it would be fun to do audio and visuals out of a single case. But I really don't know enough about the video stuff to justify the cost...
lizlarsen
authorless - yes, it can be scary expensive for the curious (same as audio modulars). but it really comes down to how you want to approach it. there are some minimal configurations of my modules or jones' MVIP that can be very effective, especially if combined with things like the right camera or display setup. a lot of your audio modules can be used to process video signals as well, if you have the core functional elements for video in place.

as for learning about it, i'm working on some "primer articles" kind of thing that explains everything a little more colloquially and in the context of actual patches, as far as how the LZX stuff works. if you have any specific questions then please ask here, too!

what sort of techniques/looks are you most interested in?

It's far more complex than that, though it will also do that. It can sequence at pixel rates, so can chop the image up into all sorts of shapes and insert pieces of images into the shapes. It's closer to the look of an 8 level keyer, except instead of shades of gray defining the areas on the screen where the images go, the areas are defined by overlapping oscillators.

Here's a couple of still frames of a video I did a couple of years ago: It doesn't show the full power, but gives you an idea.




lizlarsen
That looks like loads of fun, nice! Those stills look great. I assume it has integrated horizontal and vertical-sync'ed pulse oscillators with variable frequency, or something to that effect? A sequential switch/multiplexer type circuit is on my prototyping to-do-list and I'm looking forward to doing some experiments like this. I'm sure all sorts of fun with some boolean logic and various flip-flop circuits too.

The "Jones Buffer" frame buffer from the early 80s



A six channel version of the "Jones Colorizer", this one is from the mid 80s. It's an updated version of the one I did in the early 70s. This one uses variable soft/hard edge keyers on the channels, while the original had only hard edge keyers.



My 8 channel video sequencer/switcher and a pair of my keyers



This is a mixture of stuff from the 70s and early 80s. On the left is one of my "Output Amps". It turns any CV, audio, video, or noise into recordable video signals. It's the main output of the system. There's a couple of attenuators, and ramp generators, and in the center is a 4 channel video sequencer/switcher. The jacks marked X and Y are CV to video converters.



This is a bank of 8 of my video rate oscillators from the 80s, plus a couple of sample & holds, and some multiples.



This is a mixture of some CV stuff plus a pair of video keyers and four video VCAs. It was originally built by Richard Brewster when he worked for us in the 70s. It was based on keyers and VCAs that I had designed a year or two earlier. I wasn't happy with some artifacts they had, so I modified these in the early 80s, changing their design a bit.



This is a pair of boxes filled with CV and audio modules built by Richard Brewster in the 70s. It was largely based on Serge modules of the 70s, but modified to work at frequencies useful for video, and with various other video features (such as horizontal and vertical sync). These are nicknamed "The Yellow Boxes"



This is the video switching matrix used to patch all of the video modules to each other. It is a slide switch matrix with 48 inputs and 58 outputs. It's the same type of Cherry switch matrix used in many Arp synths in the 70s, except this is quite a bit larger. Control voltages are patched around the system on mini cables, but all the video goes through this.

Nope. See the oscillator bank above. Those go from LFO to many times horizontal rate, locked to H, V, or free running. So they can be patched into the sequencer/switcher, or anything else in the system. There are also lots of vertical rate ramps and triangles in the yellow boxes, plus a couple more H & V rate oscillators.

All the clock, sync, and switching inputs of the sequencer have comparators, so can take any waveshape to control them.
lizlarsen
Thanks for breaking it down Dave! Making me feel better about missing out on ETC (well a little bit, I can't patch any of it up!) I do little but think about all this stuff most days so its a treat to see those pics/explanations.

On the sequencer, yeah that makes sense after I see the other gear! I was just wondering if there were some integrated clock sources. We are using comparators on all our logic inputs too, I love sync'ing VCOs with external video! Reminds me of this circuit:
http://www.cgs.synth.net/modules/cgs28_seq_switch.html

An interesting variant on a multiplexer circuit would be an 8 output version with the 8 inputs "rotating" thru the outputs. Then you could get access to the "last output" and patch two sources into crossfader, with a clock-triggered envelope controlling it and get a soft fade control between inputs as they were switched. Or something like that. hmmm.....

Sorry, not the patch notes thread! hyper hyper

okay ill play. heres mine- video modular on the right on top of the rhodes with a varied mishmash of encoders and SPGs etc. audio modular (used for prototyping the video modular) is on the left. the video modular now has more modules in it, this was taken about 6 months ago.. excuse massive untidyness....

numan7
I'm still in the process of deciding where the video modules should be situated within my modular system...

I had been placing all of my LZX Visionary modules in a 6U MW case with some audio processors, except for the voltage interface 1 which i have in a din-powered skiff. So up to now, a picture of my video modular synth would be pretty much identical to a picture of my eurorack modular synth, due to being one and the same instrument...

But lately I've been inclined to put my LZX modules in dedicated 104hp barrel-pwrd skiff to the LZX modules... but: 1 VSG + 1 CVE + 1 TVF/KG + 1 VBM + 3 VWGs = 102 hp, which is 2hp more than the skiff can fit... so we'll see...
numan7
well fwiw, here's how it currently looks...

My final project from school:
I programmed an Altera DE2 board to output VGA video patterns in response to an audio signal. Added passive RGB patchbay. The arduino just acts as adjustable external clock to control the rate of the visuals. For the case i gutted a dead cisco rackmount router and mounted the stuff inside, made the top cover hinged.

it's a crazy powerful configuration! i had fun patching it up a couple times. unfortunately they had to spend their budget in one go and couldn't leave some open space for all the future module releases (although they've got 6HP extra on each row actually, since this configuration was originally designed for 84HP rows.)

Is that SoS useful on video at all?
numan7
hmmm..... i haven't tried it yet - just got everything put together (at last - one has to fight for the the last 2 hp of every row with these cases Jedi)... i intended more for audio, and thought it might be more useful along those lines with MVIP (not to mention how cool! they look together). but the glitchy bursts of noise the SoS is capable of making should be interesting with either MVIP or Visionary, i'd imagine.

i'll post a video-doodle if anything interesting turns up with it...

the ULFO fits in the gorillbox no problem??? - or only on the end?

i'd estimate there's around 24 to 26hp on right-hand side of each row that is deep enough for modules like bubblesound ulfo (or jones mvip, livewire vulcan modulator, etc...) that have stacks of several pcb's mounted behind their panels.

you might be able to squeeze 2 ulfos in one row, if that's what you had in mind, by removing 2 of the screws that hold the power-distribution pcb to the case; but i very much wouldn't recommend doing that! FUUUCCKKKK!!!

you can even get some of the old-school, vertically-mounted-pcb modules, like 4ms scm, elby cgs slope detector or planb m28, to fit in there pretty nicely, btw. thumbs up

cheers
daverj
That's quite a system you have there!

I like the idea of the skiff being on an angle like that. Seems much more user friendly for a big system on a table. If I ever build a case, I may have to "borrow" that idea.
numan7
why thanks, daverj! we're not worthy

and please go ahead and borrow the angled-skiff idea (i just have it leaning against the case in the pix above, although i do intend to make some sort of hinged-plate thing that attaches to the skiff and the case at some point)...

Thanks for the info ! I have been very "sheepish" with purchasing modulators for the gorillbox from mfgers who dont quote the depth...this helps...I LOVE the gorillabox case....it just works and you dont have to stress about power....best purchase in a long time and well worth the extra .

here's the "hinged attachment" i was writing about earlier:





it is an e-wave ribbon that i drilled some holes through and mounted hinges between it and the back of my "chaos" skiff that i recently stained blue...

all 36U pictured sits on a portable stage-table i made from a 6'X1.5' keyboard case that has fuzzy covering material and a quik-lok t-stand. each of the 4 skiffs can be worn like a guitar or placed at an angle somewhere on the table. i can set it up or take it down the whole mess in less than 15 minutes. and it all works great! w00t

I'm having the typical space issue that anyone living in New York City has but with the added issue of trying to add my video and light projection stuff into my already overrun audio space.

It's tough to balance the loose stuffs and the racks and not do things that will destroy one's back or knees like having stuff on the floor.
bitSmasher
Yeah it's a mess, though I managed to set up in less than half hour and not have to troubleshoot anything... all that packed in to a suitcase that weighed 40kg

The BitVision and Critter&Guitari stuff is NTSC, so they run through the NTSC Videonics mixer in to a Sony DSC1024 which converts to PAL and also has zoom/center to address underscan.
VBlank, HSS3i and Cameras (which didn't work on the night) go straight to Edirol V8.
I was running an Extron MAV+ 12/8 matrix switcher which was the brains of the operation, but it died... everything ran in/out of it which allowed for nifty routing, so now to choose what goes through the KPE I take 4 of the Preview outs from the V8 through the PAL Videonics mixer, which goes through KPE back in to another channel on the V8. Wish video mixers had an effects send or loop.
As soon as I can afford it I'll buy another matrix switcher, they're so damn good for tying together heaps of gear. Mind you, I don't intend on taking out this much hardware for a while - the more I do it, the more I dream of getting an iPad/laptop based setup for live use meh

Once I get a new space I can unpack and set up the other three video mixers Mr. Green

getting ready for a gig doing visuals for a film shoot on friday, gonna be bringin this LZX skiff, which is a temporary home since this is the only case I have right now:
(gotta assemble the IP diff module and screw it all in of course)

and then this LED rig I made:

as well as my modified panasonic mx-10, sima sfx-m, v4, videonics eq, & 2 vidicraft vidmates.
It's peanut butter jelly time! It's peanut butter jelly time! It's peanut butter jelly time!

gonna do the whole thing in green only at the request of the filmmakers. programming several different patterns with the LED rig all in green with different animations,
and then gonna do some shape synthesis as well as colorization with the LZX again all green.
I'll probably "cheat" a bit and run some LZX footage I've already recorded back through the synth and mixers to make it green as well.

next step is to get CV control of the LEDs so that I can sync them up to the LZX
revmutt
I wanna know about the led fixtures. Do you have a page somewhere talking about em?
lizlarsen

no page yet, nothing really, I just put that rig together a week ago. I made another LED rig last month and learned a lot from that, as well as got a few bucks for it so I took the money and made one for me smile which is what you see in the pic. whole thing runs off an arduino. I have hardware and code for midi control, but this one doesn't have it. last one did. I'm putting a video up now, I'll post it somewhere around here, dunno where it fits razz

oh nice, definitely interested in "cross platform" work or whatever called... could get some very interesting effects by videoing the LEDs which are being controlled by the same source that's manipulating the video.

I'm just getting started, so we'll see how it pans out.

I forgot to mention the MFB VD-01 in that video I posted.
I used VD-01 as the source for the SyncGen,
and extracted Luma from a Blacet LFO (triangle).
I sent that to A input of the TVF&KG,
sent a VFG to the B input.
CV'd the fade with a Cwejman VCO-6 (sine) scaled by voltage interface I.

Dr Octature! Nice. Does that module work well with video?
jjr
rhythmic processes all from a single module. You can get a lot of things all moving in a kind of synchronistic fashion. There are other cheaper modules out there that could also be used for this but the Dr. Octature is also a pretty sick filter. The a-143-9 voltage controlled quadrature lfo is only like 100 bucks. I think lars likes to use it - or I thought he said that.

setting up my live rig for a lil west coast tour i got coming up with my band. audio and video utilizes a mix of hardware/software analog/digital (analog modeling for the ms2000). i have a little mixer in my visual case for making noise with the LZX and a critter and guitari cellular automata. video mixer with security cam for feedback or live recording of the show, iphone input, bitvision, LZX, critter and guitari, video out from the laptop running numark nuvj. i use 2 projectors that i just put on the floor and shine on us for the ouput and i have a pico projector that i shine on myself with the ouput of the bitvision taking the audio from the ms2000/reason for the reactivnesss. i also have a strobe plugged into an on/off foot switch that is stored where the LZX currently is for travel. i still need to do some clean up and organization. i havent practiced with everything going yet but this will be the biggest game of simon says ever

Yeah, those things look like tons of fun!

I get a lot of request to share my notes on these mod's and prefer not to
because I would rather people surprise me with their mods on these machines
and inspire my own work.

They're not that hard to do if you have a little electronic knowledge.
Avoid the power capacitors! Mess with the resistors and IC's.
I fried the first one I tried so be warned that can happen.

Also I mod these with the power plugged in the wall,
which super pro-electronics people have chewed me out about
due to the dangers of electrical shock, so yes be very very careful.
Or you could send me yr Videonics and I will happily do it for you. Cheers!

I like the leather briefcase style.

Back in the 80s I had a pair of cheap imitation leather briefcases (cardboard with leatherette covering) that I used for mounting some circuitry in. They looked cool and were very portable.

Yes!! i still have two! I'm always on the lookout for late 80's thin hardshell style briefcases. they work so well. Mine were 6U 67HP and 6U 74HP.

If i could find a nice fit for 6U 90+ that would be awesome. But I'm currently going for the full range of monorockets.. Soon to have 3U, 6U, and 9U Skiffs. (just waitin on the 6)

from a party last night. captured a bunch of clips with the vidsynth, V4 and video effects box (vidcraft vidmate) then loading the vids onto 4 iPhones and ran 2 to the inputs, and the 3rd through a TBC into the key input on the external camera input that controls the luma-keyer.

All my Euro cabinets are finished and reorganized for the time being.

The 6U suitcase got rededicated to sequencing (which suits it better for power consumption).

The curved 9U is for video, and tube processing.
The tubes might get moved to the 3U.
The bass drum is a placeholder.

To me, those look like iris controls on CCU (Camera Control Unit) remotes:



I think you twist them to control the resistance on the slider. In a live situation, you wouldn't want to accidentally open the iris all the way, and you would want any changes to be as slow and subtle as possible. Concerts usually have cameramen with shoulder cams wandering around the stage. There might be PTZ cams, too, but I don't see controls for them.

mx104 in black snake finally came. thanks to jason at control voltage for the help getting the upgraded 5amp power and delivering at the MMTA meet where i feverishly swapped cases because i couldnt wait any longer. overall very happy with it. was worried about depth but surprised i was able to fit the MVIP in the corner. im going to take some new measurements because i realllly hope ill be able to fit the upcoming TBC. im still trying to figure out the best way to position it for use since the lid and base disconnect and theres no cable to kind of tie them together like the gorillabox has. definitely wont be keeping a patch while closed which is a bummer but theres not really any other option right now for a 12u briefcase

Awesome system, is this for a class? I go to CCC right now and would be very interested in taking it if so hyper
paulcatanese
>Awesome system, is this for a class? I go to CCC right now and would be very
>interested in taking it if so

Great question - answer is: soon. In the process of getting the equipment running and settled in the footprint of the electronics lab this winter; going to have some exploratory work done w/grad students this spring; and building the curriculum for classes that will start next academic year. I'm also going to be announcing in the next few days some openings for spots for graduate students in the department to specifically conduct research on this equipment in the context of our media performance, projection mapping, isadora/max-msp integration, and interdisciplinary performance initiatives... some of those will include graduate assistantships and a few will include full paid tuition. Will have more info about getting involved early next week.

Its a pretty awesome system & I'm really excited to see what folks will do with it; for example, in addition to the many LZX modules, just got _two_ ming mecca world core & control cores, and planning on adding a LZX visual cortex so that we'll have four live channels to work with. Have funds set aside to add DaverJ system to the mix when that is ready too; there are some plans to add in some vintage sandin modules as well. Next week, i'll post a full list of the system components & more info about the grad program...

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.

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.

Not sure if my setup really counts but here it is.

AVE5: Channel 1 - Macbook running Lumen and Arena (internal feedback with pre recorded clips) with 2 webcams for feedback, Channel 2 - 3 Input selector (1. Mixer feedback 2. B&W Videoscope 3. DVD or VHS player) Output 1 - Projector, Output 2 - CRT, Monitor output - used for feedback.
I only started working with video when Lumen was released, picked up the mixer a month or so later. I tend to work more with camera feedback than anything else.
Here is a link to some short examples of my work.
Any advice on a case to fit the AVE5, cables, and such? Also has anyone ran a Lumen output into a modular system? I would like to dive into modular sometime in the future but would still like to use Lumen with it.

It looks like you're converting VGA to composite to get Lumen into your AVE5; if so, you can use an LZX Color Time Base Corrector module to get individual LZX R, G, B signals. Probably the most direct way to LZX-ify smile Or you could get a Composite to Component (CVBS -> YPbPr) converter and feed that into the Visual Cortex, if you decide to get a Visual Cortex.

The TBC will require a VC anyway. Also, a video sync cable - and the TBC is currently out of stock. So if you have no video modules already, just get the VC. Then post a pic of your new rig. w00t

Hi,

Being using analogue and modulars since 1994.

Since I am newbie to video, I have been always fascinated by late 70s, early 80s analogue video, as per example on those times JM Jarre videos.
