I love the look of the LZX Vidiot and similar modules, are there good software emulations that can approximate the experience of mixing analog video with the same kind of grainy-ness and artifacts of analog video? I know Jitter/PD can do video mixing and synthesis, and I’ve used VIZZIE for some live performances, along with GrandVJ. But I don’t want to drop a couple grand to get into analog video equipment. Surely somebody has tried to tackle this problem in the software domain?
I should note I’m on Windows, not Mac, and I’m aware that a whole lot more exists for this on Mac.
Critter and guitar make a handful of low-fi video synths for under 200 dollars a piece that are kind of cool. They also have the ETC which sits at 495$ and does a number of cool things. It can be found here:
On the strictly software in windows realm. I personally use resolume to do visual work. It is incredibly flexible and you get in depth control on a lot of the parameters. Until I got a digitakt, I used an mpd32 to control it and it was very fun way to go about it. Tons of effects to get to the lo-fi thing as well as a lot of other places.
