Thanks @reverselandfill for posting this. Honestly this is the first time I’ve seen any info about this, has the word gotten out beyond the people who are performing or demoing their products there? I certainly hope so :crossed_fingers:t3:

I’ve sent a link to this post to a small hand full of people here in Berlin. Hopefully most people on here & in the scene are in the know already :crossed_fingers:t3::film_projector::arrow_forward::low_brightness::high_brightness::signal_strength::control_knobs::level_slider::tv::clapper::satellite::drum::fireworks::sparkles::couch_and_lamp::computer::desktop_computer:

liveset (livecat) preparations…


vidicon stream (best option!)

-> where the official live chat is, (and won’t get blocked for copyright during dj sets)

jakes youtube

highest quality (1080p) , persists the buffer, so you can pause etc. worth trying if dropping on the main

eds instagram

jakes facebook

not sure anything was actually going here but there’s also:
twitch and youtube


My modular that I used for the liveset (module demo + performance at 12:00 MST / 20:00 CET)
I used all my patchcables :slight_smile: …ordered some more because of that.
on the right side of the black case is a camera feedback setup.
Left case = mostly audio, but also some video eurorack (Syntonie CBV001 + VU002, Castle VCO + FlipFlops and my own stuff). right case is a custom LZX Cadet system21 with some modules swapped out (dual Castle ADC. with the green knobs)
I don’t have a video mixer here in Italy, so the recordings are raw!
(ps: I pre-recorded because I only have crappy WIFI here)
