Waaave_pool CAPTURE BUNDLE: sd video delay and feedback generator
Waaave Pool is a video framebuffer delay unit which is optimized for exploring video synthesis through digital video feedback. Waaave Pool is intended to be simultaneously an accessible and affordable introduction to video synthesis and a powerful and unique tool for video artists. To ensure affordability among the widest possible spectrum there are many different upgrade and diy options so double check which variation you wish to purchase on check out.
Capable of taking input from usb cameras or capturing sd analog video directly via rca, s-video, or component and outputting 720x480 through either sd analog composite video or hdmi (the system is designed around analog output into a crt so that is highly recommended) the Waaave Pool allows you to store, process, and loop up to 2 seconds of video delay. While this can function as a traditional framebuffer delay device, where Waaave Pool truly excels is in taking delayed video signals and transforming them via feedback loops into a vast number of complex reaction diffusion patterns and hypnotic morphing fractal landscapes. The default interface is a midi controller with 8 knobs, 8 sliders, and 36 buttons premapped for plug and play fun but can take usb class compliant midi signals from many controllers! For the current run the enclosures will each be custom designed.
The Capture comes with a raspberry pi, power supply, a midi keyboard with the controls premapped, breakout cable for composite video output, a custom enclosure, and sd card with Waaave Pool preinstalled plus usb dongles for capturing analog video via yellow rca and s-video and for capturing digital video via HDMI.
please note: some of the accessories you receive may not be the exact same brand, color, or general shape as the ones pictured, this will not affect their utility in any way
HEADS UP: there is a global semiconductor shortage ongoing which affects any and all products made with transistors, including these. There is a potential that some orders made in November and December will not be able to be fulfilled until January at the earliest. Rest assured that we will be doing our best to figure out how to make things happen in a timely manner but please be understanding that we are also still experiencing global fallout from Covid 19's impact on international supply chains. We have been assured that supplies of our pis should stabilize in january but it might be a bit touch and go in the meanwhile.

Absolutely incredible device! I started experimenting with it tonight and I’m just scratching the surface of its capabilities and I’m already blown away. The waaave pool is a must purchase for any glitch artist’s arsenal.
This thing is insane, pairing it up with my other devices has made for mind melting results!!
This is the coolest little thing I have ever played with I mean there is just nothing compared to this except for maybe the strange loop I own but this is just a next level stuff
Exceptional device, high quality work and all round fun toy. As a video artist this is going to be in my workflow every single time and does things like nothing else can. Thank you Alexis! For buyers - I Highly recommend the capture bundle if you want complete in/outs.
