Panasonic WJ AVE3 FX generator

I finally put an hand on(and in) a AVE3 unit.This model is getting hard to find in france.
Got this one in greece.
This was fun to bend but as usual a bit tricky with the wram connections soldering part.
You'll need a clean thin iron and and some good soldering skills and must think twice to chose the proper direction of the wires before starting.I figured it out too late so it doesn't look very clean but it's effcient and that's what maters.
I chose a 21-pts patch to optimize the combos.
These are free points.They ain't connected to the av sync like suggested on Klomp's diagram.

Circuit bent Star Ac Studio Clip camera.A few weeks back I put my hand on this crap that actually renders a cool soft grainy picture.I added 3 bends on it, some stripes,red filter and some blur.The points are although super tiny micro components so don't let the iron too long above those cause they just can melt like butter!
This toy boosted by a video amp(here one of my modified enhancer) can easily make you trip all day busting feedbacks.

BEND-O-NEON upgrade

Brightness enhance, Audio noise switch and two extra fx on the front(toggles)

I needed some pot to modulate the value of the effects so I came up with this simple non-powered external controler also with banana plugs.

test here!

BEND-O-NEON video synth
Made on a cheap but good looking video processor basis, the bend-o-neon is a banana plugs operated for a maximum of combinations.
I could go up to 20 bend points but went rather for a sharp selection of effects that could work either abstract or figuative.So instead of putting switches I stuck for 10 points and went...Bananas!
Main effect is this glam-looking pastel neon rendering but working the combos can result of total signal mayhem and cool chaotic swinging paterns.
Here is a selection of stillshots of the early test
