TRQ

TRQ: Composite video color inverter

The circuit is based on the “Truqueur” by Hervé Cadinot, published in “Montage électroniques pour vidéo” in 1994. It can invert the content of a composite video signal, and wipe between original and inverted video, with gain control on original and inverted signal.

It’s interesting to note that the design seems quite inspired of the “Video Colour Inverter”, published in Elektor Magazine November 1984.

TRQ V2 adds a second wipe, with a CV/audio input so the wipe can be controlled with an external signal. This signal can be processed using the internal sample and hold (based on René Schmitz YASH).
TRQ produces various glitch effects, with bright colors. A rotary switch can select between 8 effect intensity, and a potentiometer attenuate this effect.
The project is now available through the shop, either assembled, in kit or pcbs only.

Combing audio and video is about as satisfying as it gets.  #analogvibes #bastlinstruments #truqueur #videoart
Testing those freshly built TRQs, pre-order will ship tomorrow and a few units are now available through the shop.

Building some CBV001 while waiting for panels, more boards, and also more components to put kits together.  FFG and TRQ will be back in stock in about two months, will be focusing on the modules and CBV001S for now.  Still two Discret11 in stock ready to ship, not planning on building more for now so time to get one 😉  #vu001 #vu002 #vu003 #vu004 #cbv001 #truqueur #falschfarbengenerator #discret11 #glitch #glitchart #glitchartistscollective #videoart #analogvideo #videosynthesis #analogglitch #videodistortion #DIY #syntonie #eurorack #eurorackvideo #modularsynth #videosynthesis #circuitbending #crt

Got some assembled TRQ available, pcb sets will be back in stock soon.
Still waiting for parts to complete CBV001/CBV001S orders, should have them ready at the end of the week.  Picture is a randomly generated face from thispersondoesnotexist.com processed with TRQ, wipes are controlled using a triangle waveform (which is asynchronous to the video signal, as we can clearly see the reset of the waveform on the lower part of the picture).  #truqueur #glitch #glitchart #glitchartistcollective #circuitbending #circuitbentvideo #analogglitch #CRT #syntonie #thispersondoesnotexist
