CG-8 Visual Synthesizer revealed to the world
EDIROL is proud to announce a unique and innovative product, the world’s first Visual Synthesizer, the CG-8.
Just as synthesis in music prompted new waves of musical creativity so the CG-8 is set to do the same for the visual artist. A sampling synthesizer takes audio in or regenerates it from a wave generator and then modulates it with filters and amplifiers before outputting the sound. In a similar fashion the CG-8 can take in still images, create motion pictures from these and then modulate them with Modifiers and Fade Controllers. Designed to enhance live performance in today’s merging world of audio and visual, the CG-8 will allow DJ’s, musicians and visual artists to create stunning visual patches by easily operating from knobs and controllers, just like on music synthesizers.
The users can choose to operate the CG-8 from 16 onboard trigger pads, also capable of storing patches, twin D-beam controllers, an assignable X-Y pad, optional foot controllers and just via individual control knobs.
Worldwide debut of the CG-8 is scheduled on 6th April at the Cocoon Club in Frankfurt with international vj artist 4YOUREYE and dj phish.
