What do I need to get started?

What do you need to get started with EuroRack modular video synthesis using LZX modules? Here’s a list.

Video Synthesizer Core Module
A core module provides video sync generation for an entire system and external video input/output.

  • LZX Visual Cortex, 26HP EuroRack Module, $799 USD.

Eurorack Case & Power Supply
Supplies power to and houses EuroRack modules. Choose a case with growing room and high quality power.

  • LZX Vessel, 208HP EuroRack Case & Power Supply, $799 USD.

Standard Patch Cables
We recommend a variety of lengths. A good rule of thumb is to have as many cables as the number of patch points in your system divided by two.

Video Display
We recommend sourcing an old CRT television or broadcast monitor for the full effect, but any display with NTSC/PAL or Component video inputs will work.

If you have exhausted your initial budget or feel like you don’t have enough knowledge to start adding more modules immediately, that’s okay. Visual Cortex is a small video synthesizer in itself, and the perfect learning laboratory. Our modules are designed to expand organically from Visual Cortex as a starting point, so there are no wrong answers when it comes to what modules to get next. Peruse the Knowledgebase and follow the video tutorials to get acquainted with your new gear and expand at your own pace. System Examples provide several examples of both small and large system configurations.
