  • Why we should design things to be difficult to use
    i have heard these "difficult" interfaces described affectionately as "expert interfaces", but i'm coming up blank on a citation for that. many linux users have solved the particular issue of constantly moving between the m…

  • monome versions/history
    i have observed the bottleneck to be the serial connection itself. use the optimized output messages when you can (row/col/map) to cut down on data transmission. my apps also are very miserly about issuing commands in general, using some sort of &qu…

    i've got a 256 from that edition as well – they were made in q3 2007, if i recall correctly.

  • is it still possible to use monomeserial?
    unfortunately, monomeserial doesn't support varibright grids (or arcs). you'll have to use serialosc for those devices and then use something like pages for monomeserial OSC protocol compatibility.

    cool, that's what i assumed. don't worry about the rotation, libmonome/serialosc handle that in software.

  • Monome emulation via serialosc
    hey, serialosc dev here. it sounds like you're looking to implement the mext protocol. serialosc (more specifically, libmonome) only requests grid size right at initialization time. serialosc's (libmonome's) rotation facilities shoul…

  • Gets Unresponsive, Lights still runnging
    so, from my perspective, i'm not sure where the bug would be here, and without a reproducible test case it's tough to say. there are definitely cases where bombarding serialosc with OSC messages will cause LED updates to back up, slow dow…

  • midi keyboard recommendations
    nektar lx49 is very nice. the keys are unweighted (though they look weighted) but still feel very nice to play on. especially for the price it's pretty hard to go wrong with imo.

  • renoise + serialosc issues? and Is there a serialosc alternatve on Linux?
    can you provide steps to reproduce? i have not seen an issue like this crop up in my own personal use of serialosc, and i have played quite a number of shows with it (on linux, with rove).

  • Older devices? Qt/QML?
    you could also build on top of libmonome, which provides a C api on top of the serial interface: https://github.com/monome/libmonome

  • Serialosc causing OS level interrupt/glitching?
    does it still happen if you send the OSC messages to something other than serialosc?

    worked straightaway for me on linux. not 100% sure i want to drop the 300eur on it immediately but overall it's very snappy, very responsive. definitely stumbles more than renoise does doing similar workloads though.

  • can we talk about the problem with serialosc?
    it's totally possible to send serialosc so many messages that it can't write them all out to the monome device in time, and you start overflowing the OSC UDP socket buffer and the OS usually just drops the packets. the solution in this ca…
