Interesting things I’ve found…

I want one… I really, really want one…
monome 40h – ~$500 second hand
monome.org
Several video’s HERE

the monome 40h is a reconfigurable grid of sixty-four backlit buttons.

buttons can be configured as toggles, radio groupings, sliders, or organized into more sophisticated systems to monitor and trigger sample playback positions, stream 1-bit video, interact with dynamic physical models, and play games. button press and visual indication are decoupled by design: the correlation is established by each application.

we share a growing collection of applications we’ve written specifically for the 40h.

we also provide examples for writing your own applications. the 40h uses usb and talks serial, midi, and open sound control. it plays well with max/msp, pd, processing, reaktor, flash, java, ruby, and many others. all 40h software and firmware is open source. we aim to facilitate a community of shared exploration.

I am so into this… and think it would be perfect for The Sancho Plan… reminds me of Toshio Iwai’s Tenori-on. Been spending time on the website investigating – updates to follow…

Worth investigating…
LiveSet 1.5 – $130.80

showroom video HERE

LiveSet is a powerful and versatile realtime MIDI processor explicitly developed to enhance live performances.

From what I can make out it seems to be well implemented MIDI processing front end for rewire slaves like Ableton & Reason – with full MIDI sync capabilty – that allows you to treat and manipulate two independent MIDI sources before sending them onto multiple software and even hardware setups…

I downloaded the LiveSet 1.5 Manual for a looksee…

In exploring energyXT2’s capabilities I’ve come across…
a range of ‘hand-crafted’ MIDI and audio VST plugins
