Analog Visuals Hardware

I took some of my video hardware over to the Monster Planet show at ReBar July 18th. This is a short rundown of what I brought.

On the table are two 3TrinsRGB by Gieskes, as well as two companion Comparator circuits by FetidEye. These can all be patched back and forth with each other using breadboarding jumper cables.

In the Eurorack is power, then an Expert Sleepers Silent Way ES-3 being controlled via an old MOTU 828 audio interface.

Next, an unrelated spring reverb and a distortion unit and a diy sequencer that I’m putting together.

Next in black is a recased Sima video unit with some additional controls. I’ve done this both to take up less space, and to allow different controls than the original unit.

Then on a circuit board is a recased Radio Shack Video Enhancer, also with some additional controls. This is the same type of unit that is sitting on top of the case in one of the other photos.

Next is a Raspberry Pi which is housed in a slim panel in order to be used as either a video source, or as a control voltage source.

Then, clearly labeled to the right of that is a Schele Video Mixer by Gieskes. There are more modifications that can be made with these, so I’ll likely reconfigure it in the future.

On the far right in copper is a Karl Klomp Dirty Video Mixer. Pretty much just connecting the jacks to and from each other with no circuitry in back.

On top are two more Radio Shack Video Enhancers that I will likely make into modified modules at some point, and an old analog video mixer from Sansui.

I have a lot more video mixers and video devices that I’d love to bring out to shows, but they take up so much room. I did visuals this last month with almost this exact setup with the exception of a different video device instead of the Sansui.
