Features 12 digital color processing knobs & 4 analog edge feedback knobs.
The Fritz Decontroller is best known for producing stability-challenged illustrative looks & gritty granulated low fidelity video effects. It has a very bold aesthetic and covers a vast expanse of visual territory. A number of looks strongly resemble the Fairlight CVI or the Amiga 2500’s solarize and chroma effects (with a little extra dash of pixel rot). It is capable of posterize effects, weird color inversions, hyper neon goodness, tracer effects, color/static fill effects & of course all shades of scrambled porn. Each knob effect stands on it’s own, but upon combining any of the sixteen effects knobs you get a much wider range of broken looks. While the top 12 knobs tap into the color processing the bottom 4 knobs produce various unique edge feedback/ringing fx. One produces a soft ghost layer extrusion effect that softens any of the top knobs. The other three allow you to mold and stack various layers of edge feedback to be used in combination with the above knobs.
I tend to use this thing when science fiction enhancement is necessary. Should your VHS dub of Brain Damage, Xtro or Slithis suddenly lack pizazz then de-control is the solution.
