“An all in one glitch video production studio.” The Touch CV 2xCH (aka Modified WJ-Ave5) allows you to transition between two independently glitching channels of composite video and generate synthesized landscapes in response to subtle human touch, audio & control voltage.”
Features: 4 glitch keys per channel, 4 sets of body contacts per channel & 5 CV jacks per channel.
This is an exceptionally rad two channel NTSC composite video mixer with added digital corruption functionality. Panasonic really birthed a beast on this one. These mixers in their unmodified state are feature-packed and dependable. They have great standard on-board effects, lots of video output options and a superimpose layer that works well with the Touch Titler. In it’s modified state it is a whole other beast. You’ve got a plethora of different FX to be explored in a myriad of different manners. The tap keys can be utilized to trigger audio based glitch FX. The body contact banks create FX based on light human touch. New to this revision are the 3.5mm patch jacks for utilizing control voltage on each channel. Now you can plug a sequencer, function generator or filter into the 2xCH for voltage based glitch video control.
Each channel has glitch FX assigned to it so that by mixing or wiping between the two channels a number of really intricate looks can be concocted. Glitch visuals include a number of digital fragmentation FX specific to the AVE3/5/7 FX buffer.
This machine was crafted with a lot of time and care. Not only do I do my best to make sure these machines are in tip top working order before I start working on them (balancing trim pot values, structural re-enforcement, lubricating pots, etc) but the modification process is done with the utmost care and attention to detail. I use quality jacks & leave all original functionality intact. The keys are hand made, brass and have just the right level of flex to them.
NOTE: CV functionality is utilized at the user’s discretion. This device has not been tested with any LZX gear only audio modules. It responds best to >1 voltages.
NOTE: A dedicated external mixer is recommended for optimal audio amplification if intending to use the audio impulse feature. Best to lock that in and keep your setup self contained before you start gigging with this thing. I use a small Behringer XENY mixer (they make 2 and 4 channel versions) due to their size and affordability. This is a highly recommended purchase as the AVE5 requires quite a bit of signal amplification to see the glitch visuals. It’s also nice to filter things down to the lows.
