LZX's Sensory Translator is an audio to video converter. The module features a signal input and a built-in microphone. Internally, both sources are mixed. Results can be processed via tone controls. – Bass and Treble potentiometers, to be precise. Then, audio material is fed to a filter bank, consisting of five band-passes with fixed cutoff frequencies. The filtered signals run through envelope followers with variable decay time and beat to trigger extraction.
You want to combine audio and video signals? – Then, the Sensory Translator is just what you need. The module comes equipped with the following features:
- Omnidirectional electret microphone on the front panel. Its pre-amplifier offers three gain settings. A direct output allows you to use the microphone signal with other modules.
- External audio input, which can be used with line level or modular level.
- Mixer with tone controls. In detail, Bass and Treble potentiometers are available.
- Five band-pass filters with an edge steepness of -24 dB per octave. The fixed frequency values are: 40 Hz, 160 Hz, 640 Hz, 2560 Hz, 10240 Hz.
- Five envelope followers with three-stage decay switches, colored LEDs and an impulse mode for beat to trigger detection.

Lars Larsen and Ed Leckie met each other in the synth DIY scene in 2008 and collaborated with the idea to release an affordable yet powerful modular video synthesizer. In 2015, they moved to Portland and by now they have the most extensive catalogue of video synthesis modules available. In case you are wondering, in their own words: "LZX is not an acronym. It is an alphabetical sequence with aesthetic merit."
