The video hardware comes from the 80s / 90s . Most of it comes in a pretty good condition and looks rearly used, but please allow minor cratch marks on the enclosure ( condition can vary ). Everything we buy is from the european second hand market and is build for the PAL region. Most video enhancer like the Rusty or Carena works for NTSC too, just color corrector like Synthwave Killah works for PAL 220V only.
To work with these you need a NTSC to PAL converter.
I offer unique hand made designs with high quallity paint. The interplay of function and design is very important to us and we attach great importance to a clean processing.
Audio reactivity/CV control
Audio and CV IN can be added to each model. Some have this function included, others can be added with this extra feature.
Glitch tools are not effect devices in the conventional sense. They arise, because the signal is "disturbed" and incorrect information goes to the output (monitor). How the glitches are displayed, depends a lot, on which monitor is used, because everyone "interprets" is a little different. First and for most, our units are made to use it directly with a CRT. A good old CRT TV delivers the most stable and beautiful signal, older flat TV models can also work, but deliver different results and heavy glitch effects can lead to drop outs (blue screening).
I always recommend to plug Glitch Gear direcly to a CRT and film it directly from the screen, so you get the best out of it. Deep glitches and Lo-Fi textures in HD quallity.
If you work in studios with a CRT as a monitor, you do not need a video mixer with TBC. A good CRT stabilizes the signal on its' own. But if, at the end of the signal chain, there is a flat screen TV, projector or it goes into a PC/capture, it has to be stabilized and it´s better to use a video mixer with TBC ( Time Base Corrector ) or a standalone TBC.
Example of a signal chain:
digital signal to hdmi-av converter
hdmi-av converter to glitch device
glitch device to videomixer/TBC
videomixer/TBC to av-hdmi converter
av-hdmi converter / pc / flat screen
You're entering a large field of possibilities, when it comes to analog video and there isn't always a right or wrong, it just needs to fit to your setup.
