LoFi Future - Circuit Bent CCTV Camera - Model: Nicecam DCV-933

video upload by LoFiFuture

"Available to order:

Limited run of two, here is a nice demo of another model of circuit bent camera!

Modified with one knob and two toggle switches, this camera is capable of the usual melty CCD sensor effects, but also has a really cool effect I have found unique to this CCD camera.

The knob controls two different vertical blur types (the effect is off in the middle.

One of the toggle switches enables another, more intense yet smooth blur effect.

The Other toggle switch enables a glitchy negative stripe / repeat effect by tapping into an unutilised 8 bit video stream on the cameras CCD sensor controller / image processor chip.
Just this camera, a capture card and a laptop makes a great audio reactive glitch art setup. You can simply rescan your LCD monitor with the camera to process any footage you want in post!

There is no need for a TBC, Video mixer or CRT TV when using this camera as it always puts out a valid composite video signal no matter how glitchy it gets. This means it will work with LCD TVs and even the pickiest capture cards


-12V DC 1A power supply input (PSU not included)

-PAL composite video output

-12 mm lens with manual focus included"

LoFi Future - GlitchNoir - Circuit Bent Black and White CCTV Camera

video upload by LoFiFuture

"Available to order here:

Limited run of 8 units! These are new old stock cameras and come included with a high quality JMK 3.5 -8mm 1:1.4 CS Lens With focus, zoom and aperture controls.

Along with the circuit bends the camera has a 50/60hz toggle switch installed allowing operation world wide (with both old CCIR (PAL) and EIA (NTSC) black and white video signals)

It can produce those melty circuit bend CCD sensor effects we all love so much, as well as glitchy invert effects all the way up to full blow monochrome glitch chaos! These cameras are particularly ghostly!

The included lenses features and aperture ring, which works as an amazing overall intensity control for the glitches.

Don't let the monochrome limitation put you off. These cameras have a definite vibe! Teamed up with a video mixer, some keying and colourisation this camera is also a great asset to colourful content creation.


CCIR (PAL) and EIA (NTSC) Compatible
12V DC 500ma power in (Not Included - uses standard CCTV power supply)
BNC Video out (BNC to RCA adapter included)
New and unused JMK 3.5-8mm Lens included"

VGA Feedback Video Synth / Audio Visualizer - LoFi Future FB-200

video upload by LoFiFuture

"Available to order here:

The FB-200 is an overall improvement to the previous version of this device, the FB-100.

Keeping the same enclosure and similar basic specs this particular unit features a much more thought out signal path resulting in a more intuitive machine. The composite video processing and control circuitry is exactly the same as the FB-1000, but with just 1 LFO that can be assigned to any colour instead of 3 independent LFOs as featured on the FB-1000.

The 3 RGB pots are backlit with the corresponding colour LED. These LEDs vary in brightness depending on how high or low that knob is set and also visualises the LFO speed when the LFO is assigned to it.

The toggle switch for each channel enables that channels audio input. The FB-200 features 3 independent audio inputs that allow you to visualise more than one audio element. These are not raw audio inputs, instead it uses a switching circuit that senses peaks in the audio and sends that channel to ground briefly. This results in the familiar horizontal lines but instead of behind red, green or blue lines, the lines are the sum of the other two colours resulting in a more complex colour pallet.

The LFO section is a sine / square LFO capable of really slow frequencies or audio range frequencies (selectable via toggle switch) 3 push buttons allow the LFO to be assigned to any of the RGB channels. When the audio rate is selected it results in scanlines that can be controlled and brought into harmony with the videos scan frequency, creating slowly moving horizontal lines.

The composite video modifier is essentially a hue and contrast control rolled into one. Its is a circuit that has been specifically designed for the purpose of creating more controllable feedback loops with the dual VGA scan converter / scaler setup. Turning the knob clockwise instantly causes intense colour separation between the red, green and blue channels in the feedback loop, preventing a single colour simply washing out the screen. A toggle switch acts as a colour boost causing the feedback to become overly intense and with the flip of a switch it is instantly back in your control."

Mutant Electroplaxes

Published on Nov 17, 2014 John Keston

"This analog-sourced audiovisual piece is a collaboration with video artist Chris LeBlanc. The visuals were performed with a Hi-8 camera running through Tachyons+ and LoFiFuture processors, then keyed with a Bleep Labs synth. On the music end I have a Moog Sub 37 running through a Minifooger Delay and synched up to an Elektron Analog Four."

GrooveBoy XL running Nanoloop X2

Published on May 21, 2014 LoFiFuture·7 videos

"2 instances of Nanoloop running on two GBA SPs, MIDI synced to an MPC via Arduinoboy. Built in 2 channel mixer, analog synthacon filter clone and a stereo deep blue delay clone. All housed in a custom modified NES shell.

This system also runs LSDJ and Mgb off of the built in flash carts."

LoFi Future - GrooveBoy Prototype

via Adam on The MATRIXSYNTH Lounge

"This is my attempt at making the game boy a tactile and MIDI capable desktop synthesizer. LSDJ, Nanoloop and MGB all available at startup thanks to the built in flash cart. Currently working towards getting them made into CNC'd acrylic/wood enclosures. For now, this one is all handmade."

D.I.Y. MIDI Gameboy demo Published on Nov 19, 2013

"Here is a quick demo of a re-housed game boy advance SP with a built in arduinoboy. Using Midi GB software in this song, but the cart also has Nanoloop and LSDJ flashed to it.

I build devices like these under the pseudonym: LoFi Future

Check out and for more information on devices like this."

"Geer used:

MPC500 [Sequencing + Drum samples]
Rehoused MIDI equipped Gameboy [Bass/Synth]
Rehoused Korg Monotron [Filter for gameboy/Synth]
DIY 8 step analog sequencer [Monotron Pith CV/Filter CV]
Yamaha R100 [Reverb]
3G LTD Mynah Plus 8-2-1 [Mixer]

I'm running Mgb on the Gameboy, and the audio out is sent into the filter input on the Monotron. The Monotron mixes the two signals (its own VCO and the Gameboy) to one mono output. The sequencer controls the monotron CV (or gate input, as it works so much better) and i switch it to the Cut off CV input a couple of minutes into the song. The MPC acts as the master clock, sending MIDI to the Gameboy, and sending a rimshot sample at 16th notes out of the right output. all of the other drums are send to the left output. A Yamaha r100 provides some reverb."
