He makes a VCA and a Mixer. To an extent you can integrate control voltage, but apparently video can tend to need higher oscillation rates to be effective. The LZX stuff is top notch apparently. I know Brownshoesonly personally and have seen many of his live performances and it's really great in that sense. I know it's not a modular environment but you can make similar type visuals with some footage and Resolume Arena.


here's a couple of experimentations I did with it after using it for just a couple of hours. It's really easy to use as long as the footage you're using is small or has been re-rendered with their codec.

LZX Visionary is a line of EuroRack format synthesizer modules designed for creating and manipulating video and images.

What an odd concept..is it like the Fairlight video system from the 80s?
