Musicians and electronic enthusiasts that are looking for a colour video synthesiser may be interested in the new development board called the Video Equations which has been created by Roberto Jordan, based in Melbourne Australia.
The Video Equations colour video synthesiser provides a wealth of features together with the CV control providing the ability to create millions of different possibilities as well as allowing you to play live.
Watch the video below to learn more about this new Video Equations video synthesiser which is taken to Kickstarter and already passed its pledge goal, making sure that the development board does go into production. Its developer creator explains more about what you can expect from the hardware which can be powered by either 9V DC power connection or a 9V battery.
The Video Equations system utilises the power of mathematics to yield rippling lo-fi seas of colour, acid trip roguelikes, glitching fractals, visions of an 80’s techno dream and worlds of crashing computer programs, all from a single, beautiful unit. Equally at home in the studio, lab or on the road this colour video system is ready for take off!
Features of the Video Equations board include :
– 16 colours, hundreds of characters and symbols
– 20+ different equation archetypes each with two modifier sliders and a colour depth control for literally millions of unique stable or evolving visuals
– colour and character offset knobs for even more control and variation of output
– 4+ variable size masks, each with an invert function and mask fill options
– 9v battery or wall wart operation (wall wart not included)
– 7 X 0-5v CV inputs for modular control of all sliders and knobs
– picture mute and equation hold functions for expanded live use
– composite NTSC output (PAL users can buy a NTSC to PAL converter to integrate it into their PAL system. There is a cheap one for sale here.) The jack on the synth is BNC but comes with an RCA adapter.
