htp.syntonie maakt prachtige apparaten die kleuren kunnen genereren. De behuizing is gemaakt van mat zwart acrylaat 3mm met een licht grijze gravure. Heel subtiel en een strakke uitstraling!
FFG (#falschfarbengenerator) is based on a colorizer circuit from the 80s, CV inputs makes modulation of every parameter controllable with any external signal (on-board attenuators have been added for hot signals). #materialmonday #snijlab #snijlabrotterdam #laserengraving #lasercutting #lasersnijden #lasergraveren #graveren #vlakgraveren
Happy to announce that preorder for FFG (aka #falschfarbengenerator) are open, available as a built unit or a DIY kit (pcbs alone will follow). First units/kit are expected to ship beginning of December. (Link to the project in bio)  FFG is a video colorizer based on a circuit from 1987, published in the German magazine Funkschau, project recently unearthed by Berto A under the name « Visualist ». (Original documentation and (yet untested) gerbers of the original board are available on github). FFG addresses a few issues from the original circuit while also enabling external modulation of each parameters, meaning it can be controlled using external signals such as audio or CV from a modular synth, from slow LFO/enveloppe up to video rate oscillator.
Another improvement over the original design is PAL/NTSC compatibility, using an internal switch to set the standard.  The device works by affecting colors (Red, Green, Blue, Magenta, Yellow, Cyan, Black and White) depending on the brightness level of the input signal. This affectation can be modified using the bitswap and invert switches, giving up to 32 color arrangement. 
Shout out to Iker for the enclosure design, @loobabalooba for the enclosure graphics, Berto A for resurrecting the project and providing English documentation, @videocircuits for documenting his Visualist build, M. Klose and H. Neumayr for designing the original circuit, and of course to everyone who supported me during the development of the project 🙏 🙏 🙏

FFG final look 😎
Excited to have those out, shipped the first units/kits today, got 2 more built units available in the shop, and I’ll have more diy kits ready in about a month. Thanks again for supporting the project 🙏🙏🙏

Quick test before shipping this FFG, with signals coming from an audio synth as modulations.

Extract of the music video I did for @thedutyfreedom - Chronic Durations (check their bio for full video)  Mostly FFG and AVE MOD/CBV001(S) used here, shot on a CRT TV  #thedutyfreedom #chronicdurations

FFG DIY kits preorders shipped and a few more are available in the webshop. Built units will follow.  Here FFG is used as a kind of RGB encoder: if all the RGB invert switches are on, and a sync signal or a video signal that contains only black (white if the invert switches are off), modulating the RGB CV inputs will result in the modulations being encoded by the FFG RGB encoder.  This video is mainly a test of a cpld based composite sync generator: - Composite sync out from CPLD -> FFG video input
- FFG video output -> LZX sync generator
- LZX modulations -> FFG RGB CV inputs  Looks pretty stable, even thought there’s a little glitch at the beginning of the picture.  #falschfarbengenerator #diy #diysynth #syntonie #videoart #visualart #videosynthesis
