Well i have finally decided on the Macbook Pro 15" version (which was in a a post i done a few weeks ago). It just has to be done
So anyhow, i now have a new question for everyone to ponder at or even think, hmmmm sounds like a good idea.
So anyway, i recently received the kit version of the monome 40h. Which i am happy to say i have done the soldering for, except for the LED lights, which i have to order tomorrow, because no-one here in Dubai knows what a LED is, im not kidding, no-one knows.
But since building the monome and before that i have been pondering building a custom built midi controller. And as the name precedes only I will know how to use it properly for me, because it is custom built.
I have found a few good websites (2 in fact), which deal in selling components to build and model your own controller.
But the question is not what should i get, but, how hard is it to build firmware for a midi controller. Or will firmware be needed at all?
I have a passion for building things, anything that can make a sound. But recently (about a year) i have had a burning urge to build my own controller that can control anything i want in my programs or even max patches (preferably).
Robert Henke's (Monolake) controller is a good example, also Richie Hawtin's as well. Both of which were made with Doepfer components.
So if anyone knows any way to either build the firmware, please let me know. I would like to get up and running to build my own controller.
Or if you have any idea of which company to go with for components, please let me.
Even tell me other companies that do the same thing, that may even be better.
Keep It Easy, Keep It Cool
