The worlds of audio and visual performance are crossing over more than ever with many musicians and sound artists using visuals to accompany online sets. The Tymkrs GlitchCRT Eurorack Module is a crossover eurorack device capable of mixing 3 user-generated visual inputs to the beat of your modular drum – or synth or sequencer!
It’s a 6HP Eurorack module with a unique reversible faceplate (what a cool idea!) and comes as a fully completed unit to load up into the modular mothership! There are 3 inputs for video, one for audio and a composite video output of the combined visual signals. Each video input has an intensity knob to create anything from radical image merging to subtle flowing flickers.
Possible video sources could be retro video game consoles, VHS players, or vintage camcorders. Whatever you plug in, this unit will mix and mash them to the sound of your unbalanced audio input. Time to dust off the vintage gear for an algo-rave!
The Tymkrs GlitchCRT Eurorack Module is sold by Tymkrs (The Toymakers) who have a store jam-packed with audio/visual goodies, sold from the USA. They’re compiling a playlist of videos for the unit as we speak.
