Simple Gen Video Synth


    Feb 26 2015 | 1:10 am
    I was thinking today how fun it would be to knock together a very primitive 3-color function generator video synth using jit.gl.pix, and wanted to share this with you guys. You'll have to bear with it being completely undocumented, but hopefully you can take it and have a little fun and extend it.

      This is fun. Thanks so much for sharing this.
      Not so familiar w/ Gen. How would you control the speed? For example, if I wanted to make it slow and more fluid.

      @ALEATOR1C You could try adjusting the time divider at the top to a higher value. That would at least slow down the phase cycling. You'll probably also want to adjust the other parameters too.

      Hello,
      Trying to fix this for max6 but i'm a bit stuck with the "scl"-parameter going in the leftmost jit.gl.pix. Weird thing is it's not declared in the pix-object and there's no empty inlet somewhere (or is it the alpha-channel?). Anyway its already a great patch, thanks for sharing!
      Luvulongtime!

      Nice catch! I think the "scl" parameter was leftover from the first run through I did, and I deleted it in favor of channel-specific scale parameters. At any rate, it's true that it doesn't do anything. :)

      Thank you very much for this bit of code! I plan to implement this as a video element in a multimedia work. I'll cite accordingly!

      I've never thanked you for this patch Andrew. Was really inspiring and important for the Vsynth development.

      @2K you're very welcome! Vsynth is legendary, and keeps getting better.
      Everyone else, go get Vsynth from the Package Manager. :D

      Just wanted to circle back and say thanks for this. I've been having a lot of fun with it.
