looking for a fake monome controller (within MAX):

launchpad and polygome:
various monome apps:


Shruthi-1 learning how it works #2

quick post:

have been playing with the sequencer in the shruthi-1, and realised my jx-3p was (basic) midi too.
followed more of the ref manual on mutable instruments, then had a look through some other pages on there…
someone was looking at selling some stuff, namely an arduinome and pointed out a couple of monome apps that were usable with the shruthi-1.
i tried polygome, made by stretta:
from here:
monome forum discussion:
one more:
it sounded great running the shruthi-1 in mono mode, but i realised it’d do poly too, so hooked up the jx-3p…
i’ll be making a video, but in the meantime:

Ableton Live fiddle

Posted in creative practice, Dr8 work, gear, software with tags , , , , on 26/09/2010 by sync24

had a fiddle about with Ableton Live,
first thing to experiment with CKs echofoam controller, which took a bit of fiddling with to get it right.
it uses a few layers of conductive foam hooked up to an Arduino and a bit of custom software.
i’ll have to report back to CK about it, i like it, but don’t think it works the way i want to do things. controls seem to end up being a bit too random…
also hooked up my old kenton control freak after D showed us how to ‘dj’ with the software.
now i ‘get’ how it all works, i’ll get the Monome hooked up and not buy a decicated controller…
here’s a link for some max/monome/live patches:
