New for the twenty fifteen it’s Sima’s first proper 2 channel video mixer; glitched the $#%# out. It is a super solid video mixer with awesome wipe shaping, luma key options, onboard fx & a built in TBC for stable video output. It has a couple of features I wish they carried over to the SFX-9/10 models. It was created with an enormous amount of analog components giving it a real rich warmth. It especially shines when utilized for video feedback. In fact, the glitch fx were created to compliment the classic mixer feedback setup. If unfamiliar, what you do it put a source on channel A, route one of the 2 mixer outputs to a display and the other to channel B on the mixer. Wiping or mixing between the two channel creates mixer feedback and adding both onboard fx and the glitch fx into the mix expands upon this technique.
The glitch fx in themselves vary but all have a similar complimentary tone. Some of the FX create pastel “illustrate” overlays in varying degrees of intensity. A couple of looks create a scrolling color ghost overlay of your signal which is very cool. This is reminiscent of the secret feedback mode available on the Touch Deluxe. In a similar but different vein there is a weird alternate feedback direction that scrolls horizontally independent from the natural flow of feedback. You can stumble upon it through stacking cables. There is also some harsh noise effects lurking on each channel. Effects are obtained by patching the included 3.5mm patch cables into channel glitch points. There are seven glitch points per channel and you can patch fx on a channel back into the same channel or into the other channel. Once again, they look cool on their own but they all really shine when in combination with the mixer feedback I outlined above and are highly recommended for that use. This is another rarity. I see them come up probably once every two months.
