Eyesy for Fates
The operating system for the EYESY video synthesizer device - for Fates.
Hi everyone, I recently adapted the Critter&Guitari video synth Eyesy code in order to run it on my Fates as a Sidekick app.
I thought I could share this here if anyone is interested
You can also check out the amazing Mode library at: ETC | Platforms | Patchstorage
Fates + a hdmi capable screen, Touch OSC iOS/Android app (optional), midi controller (optional)
This could theoretically also run on a norns shield but you will have to use a midi controller as the encoders won’t work - EDIT: As the hdmi out is deactivated on the norns shield image, this does not seem possible as is
Please see the README from the Github page.
Last Update (19/12/20):
Thanks again to everyone who helped, here are the features:
- Run Norns with Eyesy in parallel, Norns sound into Eyesy
- Control via a Touchosc Template
- Readme update
- Many bugfixes
Please be sure to have the latest Fates firmware version installed (update otherwise or you won’t be able to run Eyesy and Norns in parallel)
If you had already installed it via the github instructions, you can update by running (do not forget to backup your presets first!):
cd ~/sidekick/patches/Eyesy; git pull; git reset --hard origin/master; ./deploy.sh
If you have no video signal, look into
systemctl status eyesy-python.service
and if you have no controls or if the app doesn’t start you can use
journalctl | grep sidekick
Ps:This was moved from the Fates thread so the first posts are a bit in disorder
