So this unit here is a bit out of my range and out of stock. I’ve had some ideas for a while on how to integrate voltage controlled video into performance. Most of my tracks are recorded while performing them, and I just got a super cheap webcam. So I was thinking about how I might be able to do something internally.
It led me to wondering about internal CV. So we can obviously send CV out of an ES8. But can we take CV out of Audulus and into the background of the computer to be worked with?
It seems to me, as keep moving forward, that once Audulus is the hometown of your production setup, one way to think about a small complimentary rack is to outsource CPU heavy tasks in order to keep Audulus free. So I am making room in my 54hp such that it leaves the most room to explore synthesis.
I have thought about a small projector for a while to host the signal, but I would also need a place to work with it.
I like the idea that I could take a webcam signal and ‘treat’ it somehow with live CV internally. There is Audulus’ modulation signals already present, on the one hand, and a usb camera provides video data, on the other.
There is are also workarounds with MIDI, using Audulus with Korg Gadget. So just want to start a practical performance conversation on synced video manipulation/synthesis.
By “place to work with” video, again it is also a cpu/performance/reliability concern. This little guy, also from LZX Industries, caught my eye:
Again, the idea here isn’t so much about the products, but what can be done within the box.
