  • mlrV MIDI insert - updated 07/10/09
    The only thing I could confirm is that the file selection list bar, for each channel stays blank. You cannot see their initial state labels ("input_1", "input_2" .... "resample_1" ) or interact with the object (to sele…

  • mlrV MIDI insert - updated 07/10/09
    I stand corrected, just tried the plain vanilla regular mlrV and the Max 5.0.6 breakage does not show there. Thus it seems the new environment has only broken this "mouse edit" version. hope we can all get it sorted out. I can help …

  • mlrV MIDI insert - updated 07/10/09
    I tried modifying this version, to include simple keyboard triggering of the (Rec) button. _failed_miserably_ :( seemed simple enough; but after tutorials and docs I had a modified version of the ch.maxpat, that did toggle the record functi…

    OR, a hold button ... you know, whenever you hit a sweet spot of patter combinations, you push this single keypad, and the pattern holds, freeing up your fingers to do other musical stuff.

    My best friend wants to make a monome project using the "propeller" chip; the one in the hydra kit. maybe it can be an option for future 256(?)

  • high quality soldering iron
    A nice $10 radio shack iron was good enough for both my Theremin and my 40h. Just wanted to get that out, for people on the budget. Also, whatever you do, don't get a Gun type iron for assembling the kits. That, and having thick solder wir…

  • dj64 - new app, sneak preview!
    Also, while the Max runtime environment is free, the developer version is not. So that, while I have wanted to contribute to some apps in the past, I find it impossible without breaking the bank first. I still salute all the great guys that relea…

  • How exactly to wire the SparkFun boards?
    Hi, I used the Sparkfun Button and Board kit for my custom 40h Monome-on-Guitar project; you can see pics and stuff here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/23282402@N03/sets/72157603816242430/) and here (http://www.mesmero.net/musica/media/iweb/Instrume…

    I put together one of their ThereMax kits a few years ago; at first they didn't send me like half of the components needed, and listed in their instructions booklet. I called and they where very cool about their mistake and promptly sent me t…

    how is the state of this matter now? We have a wonderful dokuwiki going on, but this dream of a grand unified CMS.... [I wouldn't say we are in the red or critical mass yet, some sort of crisis] I think with the dokuwiki pretty much the urgenc…

  • Mesmer! hardware help!
    You'll basically want to test each PCB individually, until you're done soldering the leds and the diodes on each one. Then, make the vertical connections between a pair of boards. Then go for the horizontal connections, first the lower P…

    Paul, there is no schematic as one would like ... ... except the one I drew which evolved from the "napkin" discussions in the old forum/board. I have no problem scanning and e-mailing them to you if you're still stuck. I regre…

  • what's your favorite I/O hardware?
    @alther.. he means TI as in Texas Instruments chipset. Seems it's really important to buy your Firewire interface with that kind of Firewire chipset, or else you enter a period of driver tech support driver runaround fool off. -h

  • Monome Kit Calling Home: "The Gnomo Uno"
    whoooo hoo! It's really a lot of raw power I have to admit it! Yes, one of my favorite benefits of this project is side-stepping the whole faceplate issue. Also, it seemed to me that the whole lights+movement aspect of it is so beautif…

  • working without diodes
    I don't know about ghosting ... but I did build my monome using the sparkfun kits. What I did was interrupt the metallic bridge lines that make up the button pressed circuit, and soldered the diodes to each end of the gap. to cut the meta…

    Maybe i'm late, but this is what I think: I vote, like @iotao, for Mercurial. For the very same reasons: ease of use, and past experience. Also, check this out, their standard installer, installs you a web server by default, which is turne…
