By design the monome grid does nothing on its own. You the user assign it purpose and meaning: instrument, experiment, tool, toy… choose your own adventure. This grid is intended to be reimagined. Here we set forth to impart some introductory knowledge: potential energy for radical creative freedom.
The following tutorials show how to use different languages and environments to achieve the same goal: a playable step sequencer which interfaces with the grid.
- Max – a highly refined graphical patching environment.
- Arduino – embedded programming to connect grids to external hardware.
- Processing – integrated development environment for visual experimentation.
- Puredata – open-source graphical patching for audio processing.
- SuperCollider – synthesis engine and programming environment.
- Python – general purpose programming language.
- Node.js – web-centric script programming platform.
