    Default Home Built Old School Meets New School Abstracts

    Its been awhile since I have posted any of the projects I have been working on. This one is a little unique. This is an analog console along side an LSX console. The intent is to perform live shows to any music using a mix of old school analog abstracts and new school live LSX abstracts. There are many parts and pieces to still be developed but progress is happening quickly. As the project has further development I post here.

    Analog is being projected with 506 with X-Laser amps
    LSX is being projected with PT-40s, Etherdream 2

    Thanks.

    I was able to get the console started over the weekend. Hoping to have it painted and detailed over the next few days.

    Some video trying to play my new instrument. There are some parts I like and some that need work. But this was a good test of the new color mod circuit.

    Mr. DZ helped me out with three VCQO for the patterns. I built some color mod circuits to go with.

    I like that color scheme. Are you planning on adding labels or do you "just have to know" like the laserist describes the old abstract consoles?

    you mean flat black consoles in the dark with black knobs and a shock collar that zaps you if you miss the harmonic on your lissajous?
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.
