LZX + non video eurorack


#1

what eurorack gear (non video) are you using with your video modules?

i just got a vidiot (my first dabble into video synthesis) but i have a decent eurorack audio setup. first thing i did was patch in my benjolin and wow. i highly suggest trying the benjo with your video stuff.

I’ve got quite a few mutable instruments modules and some others that I’m using - but particularly stages and marbles (and maths) for modulation and a mono audio out into sensory translator - which I use for modulation of both audio and video


#3

intellijel planar (haven’t used V2 but I THINK it would offer the same output)
it isn’t perfect but it will work to softly move some images and or using its XY to make shapes or as CV is great fun

these were both done with a planar



#4

oscillators, filters, comparators, attenuators. wanna try using phonogene somehow


#5

attenuation/offset
comparator
here I’m using two different pulp logic 1u tiles
att/off and a comparator

also don’t forget to go the other way and modulate audio stuff with video signals

also just straight up listening to video signals can be interesting and usually leads to some inspiration

wait a second. youre in bokeelia? im in fort myers. we should link up sometime.


#8

for real? wow I’m about to have 4 weeks off! yay

I’ve got some ciat lonbarde audio gear and video synth stuff where abouts in fort myers are you?

if you have time my wife and I run a community theatre on pine island and are having performances of a christmas story tonight and tomorrow night at 7 and sunday at 2 https://www.facebook.com/PineIslandPlayhouse/

Cool, how are you using the Benjolin with the Vidiot? I learned synthesis from Rob Hordjik’s Nord Modular forum posts & book, so I’ve been curious about that module for a while. Filters and sources of chaos are definitely useful for video, so I can absolutely see the Benjolin being fun.

Here are the audio modules in my video rack right now:

4ms Quad Clock Distributor
4ms Quad Pingable LFO
NLC Triple Sloths (multiple chaos sources)
Intellijel Dr. Octature II (filter/quadrature osc, lots of ways to use it)
2hp Delay
2hp OSC
Antimatter Sub Ring (mixing, noise gen, ring mod, seems to pass video rate just fine)
PulpLogic 1U Att-Off (also seems to pass video rate just fine)
PulpLogic 1U Mix-B (a little bit of high-frequency rolloff, but mostly passes video rate)
PulpLogic 1U FSR
PulpLogic 1U Cyclic Skew
PulpLogic 1U Slew
Synsi 1U Clock gen
Synsi 1U Pedal I/O

In the past I’ve also had the Koma SVF-201, Maths, the Pittsburgh OSCv2 and MixMult (can’t remember how much HF rolloff it had, probably too much.) I’ve also tried a few complex digital oscs like Mutable Rings, Orgone Generator, and Telharmonic, but wasn’t super jazzed with the results per HP. Rings probably the most interesting of those three. I’m picking up a secondhand Wogglebug this weekend for more chaos.

i used this setup on my last visual performance, but i´m preparing an av set with my main rack, i just split my lfos ( mainly the pittsburgh chain reactor) and the cv from my sequencer that i route with passive switch. i´ts super fun


#11

Audio wave shapers work nicely with video, especially the NLC Timbre! always bringd great results and its pretty much in every patch I make.

Anyone using PulpLogic X-Fade tiles? (Or capable of parsing the tech specs?)

These would be really useful in the set-up I’m building, if they work okay. Much more space-economical for me than a Cadet Fader.
