The module I’m currently working on is a port of the monome norns script by Dan Derks, “less concepts.” With Dan’s blessing, I call it more.ideas. It uses elementary cellular automata to generate eight triggers (256 elementary rules -> 8 available bits), a quantized V/oct output, and a selected trigger output (route out one of the eight bits to a main out).
It is a bit difficult to explain, but there are already some great pieces written on the idea of the module by Dan himself. As I work through my implementation (which will have a few alterations and tricks up its own sleeve) documentation will eventually update.
You can have a look at the original less concepts announcement on the lines forum. There was a Max for Live port done as well, which you can check out here (scroll down for a video).
The original was based on Ezra Buchla’s script for the monome Teletype module.
Here’s a quick video of the first tests.
There are some things I’d like to clean up on the interface (like adding a label with the scale names) and so on, and eventually I’ll ask for beta testers. I am going to be busy with work and school come fall, so I’m hoping to get the bulk of development done on this over the coming weeks!
