I love hearing about the projects you’re doing, and I love traveling to your cities and towns to do workshops, performances, and nerdy talks about video art.
Let’s make it happen!
To order PCBs or just have a nice chat, fill out the form below and let me know what’s up.
CHA/V PCBs are $10 + shipping. They come in
lots of different colors black, lol. You can have any color you want as long as it’s black. (sold out as of 12/3/2020. New version is finished and will be released in early April 2021. I’m not currently taking names for a waitlist, but I’ll try to get in touch with anyone who emails me to ask for one when they’re back in stock. The new version is a bit cleaner, has slightly better labeling and routing, and most importantly, an expansion port that allows some expander modules to attach to the CHA/V without wiring. The first expander module “VGA4EVA” generates a video signal natively — PCBs will be available for $10, and parts for a DIY build are currently ~$12. 2019 CHA/V 2.0 boards will be compatible via a free expansion port adapter. It’s still possible to build the CHA/V with the little red test signal generators, but they’re no longer required — VGA4EVA is a DIY signal generator that makes many improvements on the store-bought ones. Many people (including myself) have had issues sourcing the test signal generators, so I took that opportunity to create DIY solution to replace them, while also making the whole platform more useful and flexible. In addition to generating a user programmable video signal, VGA4EVA has a filter bank, and also provides some interesting new places to patch into the circuit. I’m planning to overhaul the site for the release, and do some detailed documentation on advanced uses for VGA4EVA. Pic below (showing off VGA4EVA’s triple filter section a little to get those goopy color blends — full disclosure, the sine waves are from a CHA/V-synced Eurorack oscillator).
E-Z Bake Video is $5 + shipping. (sold out as of 10/2020, new version sometime in 2021) They come in red or blue. I’ll give you a significant bulk discount if you are doing youth programming or other similar non-profit sort of work because that’s what my day job is.
Axoloti Eurorack Adapters are $10 + shipping. (sold out)
$5 (1st class, padded envelope)
Worldwide (outside the US):
Option 1: $10 shipped as a “package” (1st class, padded envelope)
Option 2: $5 shipped as a “letter” (paper envelope painter-taped to a piece of a manila folder)
The ‘ol letter trick is a well-established practice for mailing PCBs cheaply. The risk is that if it goes through a sorting machine it can be potentially bent and broken, lost, or rejected and returned. I’ve heard that it may not technically be legal, but people have been doing it for years, so my guess is that it’s more of a “frowned-upon” thing. CHA/Vs have made it through the mail this way, but it’s tricky with them because of their size and shape. E-Z Bake and the Axo adapter are a little more well suited to it. Shipping method is up to you — I just can’t guarantee you’ll get it in one piece (or at all) if we go the cheap route.
I accept PayPal here.
Please include your shipping address in the PayPal comment. If you’re outside the US, let me know if you want shipping option 1 or 2.
