The Dead Language v3 glitch video titler and fx processor brings dynamic glitch titling back to BPMC. Each DL has had it’s own unique titling style and aesthetic. While the v1 & v2 favored minimalism in their features & appearance I would put the Videonics TM2K (on which the v3 is based) on the more sophisticated end of the spectrum. If you hit the demo button you will immediately notice that this thing does not fuck around and reigns supreme with an extensive assortment of fonts, sizes, colors, textures, backgrounds, scene transitions, pages… you name it.
The DLV3 features six unique global image processing effects (effects that process both your text and incoming signal if present). The unit powers on into a video pass-through mode that can be processed without titling…. which is handy. The effects are digital-analog hybrid effects that colorize the signal in curious ways. One of my absolute go-to glitch color processing effects is on this machine.
The DLV3 features 7 TXT corruption buttons that respond differently to each font, font size and arrangment. The best way to get a feel for how the buttons effect different titler settings is to press the demo button and tap the buttons along to each page. I went the push button route to encourage single effect usage as combining push buttons will crash the unit (one at a time folks). This is very important. There is an intended usage here. You MUST PRESS BUTTONS ONE AT A TIME OR YOU CAN CRASH THE UNIT. This that glitch shit, remember?
This entire text corruption experience is further heightened by on board animated backgrounds; rainbows, starfall, twinkling stars, oscillating color bars… rich with features. Don’t sleep. Do peep.
