The Castle synth is different from the Cadet synth which I have recently been putting together.
These modules were designed by Philip Baljeu of Toronto and were inspired by early digital hardware video synths.
Binary = on/off or 0/1
It processes 3 bits in parallel.... 3 bit data streams
The 3-bits give 8 possible combinations.....Black, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, Magenta, Cyan, and White.
I'm guessing that these modules will be good for producing computer graphics and pixels ??... but maybe more. I wonder what it will be like when you mix these with the analog Cadet LZX.
It seems that any signal can be used as an input, it doesn't need to be binary logic signals.
There are 8 modules in this video synthesizer. Everything is through hole, and 4HP
LZX - Castle
00_000 ADC - Analog to digital converter
01_001 DAC - Digital to Analog converter
02_010 Clock VCO
03_011 Shift Register
04_100 Multi Gate
05_101 Quad Gate
07_111 Flip flops
