Thread: monome anyone?

  1. #1

    Default monome anyone?

    does anyone here use a monome in their setup?

    www.monome.org

    just a handmade light up grid of 64, 128, or 256 buttons, but oh so fun and intuitive...


    i have a 40h, and am on the waiting list for a 128, long down the line i guessing...

    i really love mine. i will never sell it. i want to pass it down to my kids.

    i midi sync mlr, a live choping app with traktor's bpm while running it though live's effects via rewire, fun stuff.


    anyone else play with one?

    sound very cool, i'd love to hear a little more about your setup and how you use it with Traktor/Live.

    Ive seen heaps of videos of people using these in completely the wrong way, in the right hands things can be pretty useful, but using them as a step sequencer as alot of people do leaves a lot to be desired IMHO.

    I like using the step sequencer with the monome and step64... To me it's very intuitive...

    But i still love chopping samples in mlr - it's just too much fun...

    you should shoot a video for Dj TT of how you use the monome. i would like to expose more people to that cool concept.

    All Monome Youtube videos sound like variations on this one to me:

    A self congratulatory masturbatory f*ckin' racket. I haven't seen anyone use one to do anything that couldn't be done in 3 minutes with the tracker editor in Fruityloops. It's such a beautiful device, but it's really a solution looking for a problem.

    I'm sure someone will figure it out eventually, and I'll bet the answer will be something along the lines of "If you add a box of sliders and knobs for your right hand and use it with the Monome you can do... THIS!"
