[gijs] sent in the control voltage sequencer he’s been working on that uses the TVout Arduino library to provide a graphical interface.
The sequencer doesn’t produce any sound on its own. Instead, it outputs a Control Voltage so other synths can be sequenced with [gijs]’ TVSCV. Before MIDI came around, CV was the standard to connect synthesizers and drum machines together. Even today, a lot of boutique synths have at least one jack for CV. [gijs]’ build is really interesting because of the user interface – the TVout Arduino library was used in conjunction with a tiny CRT to change values, timing and speed of the CV output. The TVSCV is able to sequence two different channels of CV at 10 bit resolution with 16 steps per bank.
From the video after the break, the TVSCV sounds like it can produce what would be the trippiest soundtrack ever conceived for an Atari or NES game. It’s a great bit of kit, especially when connected to an Atari punk console or a TR-808 and a glitch delay.

Gijs makes soooo cool stuff, have a look on his other projects!
I’m almost more interested in the awesome tiny TV in the picture
Yeah, me , too. I want one of those…. Anyone know where to get one?
Infinitely more interested in the awesome TV. Anyone know what it is?
The TV is a mini TV that i stripped of its casing.
Then mounted it on wood with hot-glue and mounted that on perspex.

what’s up with the suction cups on that monitor?
the suction cups might have photocells in them, I would guess they’d be controlling a filter.
the one with the suction cups is a little different, you can find info on how it works here: http://gieskes.nl/undefined/x/?f=tvsld
Love the monitor and the sequencer :) Nice work as always Gijs :)
