Tokyo Festival Of Modular 2017: Cat Full Of Ghosts Electronics Video Synthesizers & Eurorack Modules

On this year’s Tokyo Festival of Modular, Rob from the Australian company Cat Full Of Ghosts Electronics presented several interesting video Synthesizers and prototypes of new Eurorack modules. 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 dreamand 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 

  • 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 or PAL output (select at end of campaign) The jack on the synth is BNC but comes with an RCA adapter.

  • picture mute
  • 25hp wide (35.5mm depth)
  • 7x CV in (0-5v with protection)
  • BUILT IN SCREEN AVAILABLE ON REQUEST (+$100AU this will be a built in display that has an external rca that can be used to monitor other video signals)
  • RCA composite video out with ac coupling and esd protection
  • Power use: 12v = 430ma max, 5v= 0ma, -12v = 0ma
  • Improvements between what you see in the video and what you will get:
  • higher contrast on the lettering on the wood
  • a reset button on the front panel
  • possibly a switch to change between NTSC and PAL from the front panel (we are working on it now and it looks promising).

Cat Vi$$ion Synth

An awesome little black and white video synth that creates Lo-Fi geometric patterns, scrambled pixels and strobing, throbbing glitches. There are future plans for this to go to production with cv/midi in and external video sync.

To get an overview of the new Eurorack modules check out our video from Tokyo Festival of Modular.
