Re: EYESY - Critter & Guitari

Well that makes things easier to integrate with LZX stuff. I may be in the market for one of these. Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Non-glitchy analog video mixer?

I’m not aware of any that are diy. You would need some sort of timebase correction in there, so that complicates things. An Edirol is probably your best bet, but depending on your needs, maybe a Videonics or Panasonic video mixer could cut it as well.

Re: Non-glitchy analog video mixer?

Does it have to be analog? There are plenty of digital mixers that could do this.

Re: Goal Rack...

Fantastic choice of the WMD Performance mixer. I have one, it’s fucking dope!

Since you say you don’t have many of the sequencers in that rack yet, check out Nerdseq. I’m not sure there’s anything that can’t be done with it.

Re: How do you arrange your modules?

I rearrange my rack every few weeks it seems. I find the new arrangements inspiring. I arrange my modules by voice to try to keep the cable spaghetti to a minimum.

Makes sense, I'm stupid, thanks. Then I'll make real crossfades with my two Radio Musics and VCAs haha.

That doesn't solve my glitching issue though.
For the glitching, try a different sd card. That fixed it for two of my radio musics.

Actually, somebody on the LZX forums had mentioned that the Panasonic AVE-5 works with 240p sources. I just tried my AVE-3, and that works flawlessly. You can find them pretty cheap on ebay. The cool thing about the AVE-3, 5, and 7 is that they're really easily circuit-bendable.

Unfortunately not really. I have an Edirol V-8 which kind of works, but after a while looses sync. In my case, i'm trying to get 240p signals to work with LZX modules. Thier TBC2 module is supposed to be the magic bullet for this problem, but hasn't neen released yet. That said, look for a timebase ...

That's because they output a 240p video signal. It's not too weak, it's kind of a hack that early game systems commonly used. You may be able to use an upscaler of some sort.

I'm currently dealing with the same issue with a B&W Video Scope, nes clone, and Ming Mecca.

Yeah, it was just a generic review. I haven't seen any reviews regarding what lasers would be best with the cyclops.

I don't know much about these lasers, but Techmoan did a review on some lower end color lasers, and to me, they seemed like they would not work well with a Cyclops. The laser he reviewed rounded off coreners pretty badly to the point where the images looked pretty aweful. It seemed to me at least th...

I swapped out the 5v Meanwell switching supply, and all is working again. The part cost $8.50 or so and took 5 min to change.

A blinking LED like that probably indicates that the 5V switching supply is not working - that's a typical 'error message'. Have a good check if there could be anything short-circuiting any of the 5V pins on busboards or PSUs - bent pins, for example. Though contacting Doepfer is surely also the be...

Lzx staircase

So, I've taken the plunge and picked up my first couple of LZX modules. I don't have a Prismatic Ray or Staircase yet. My intent is to use an LZX system mostly for processing video signals generated elsewhere. For the sake of arguement, and not to let the cat out of the bag, we'll say my external so...

I got the Ming to sometimes work through the V8 by tweaking the sync threshold setting. It rarely seems to work perfectly, and needs to be adjusted occasionally. I think that likely means i'll have to send the ming through a scaler or time base corrector. (My roommate found that tip on the Ming Micr...

Huh. It seems odd that the V4 could support video sources that the V8 doesn't. I suppose it's possible, but would be very odd.
