Monome Users on this forum


#1

I would love to hear from organelle folks who also have a monome or an ARC

cheers~


#2

The monome is also the same width as the Organelle. so nice.

I have a QuNeo and was pretty excited about that until I realized there are no drivers for QuNeo on Linux. :frowning:


#3

I have a current 128 monome.
Let me know if you want me to test anything.
Back at my studio from Wednesday.


#4

I have a GS64 and a 256kit. Have not had time to use them with the organelle yet, but plan to make some patches!


#5

i am having really slow performance with the help patches ;-(


#6

Looks to be working nicely here:


#7

I’ve used the older 40h (monome64) with the patch in the above video and it works pretty quickly and seemlessly, but I could only get it to play one note.

I could change the pitch of that one note, which was fun, but maybe not the fullest potential.

GREAT first start however and entirely possible I didn’t spend enough time to get the most out of it.

Would LOVE more love on this.

Organelle + Monome is a great pair! I use my Organelle as my main Monome host, as seen in the video posted by @KristofferLislegaard above.

It actually works more seamlessly for me than the Monome Aleph did for my use case as I’m more familiar with PureData and writing PD extensions in C than the Monome Aleph’s custom API.

I ported a basic grid sequencer (seen in the above video) and posted the patch on Patch Storage.

The process for this patch is in the thread:

Always room for improvements, especially around installing serialosc seamlessly.

It’s so satisfying! The OP-1 is also the same width, it’s real nice to use those three together.

Here’s another video of a Monome in a setup with other gear, with the Organelle as the brain. (sorry, no sound). I use a Teenage Engineering OP-Lab as a midi/cv hub and router for the OP-1 and the Minitaur. You may not need need a USB hub for the Monome 64, as it gets enough power from the USB bus power, but the Monome 128 needs a powered hub for all the LEDs to light up.

It would be super awesome if we could install it the same way we install fluidsynth~ and firmware updates. Just load a patch and press the aux-button.

I would really like to get into making monome patches for the Organelle, but havn’t had time yet. If the install process gets easier I think that would make it more attractive to a lot of people who have been using it on traditional computers before.


#10

Totally! I actually switched to that method recently, it’s in the latest Monome Step Sequencer Install patch. Anyone should feel free to use this as a base for installing SerialOSC for their own Monome patches.

After installation, you get a little light show on the Monome and the AUX LED to confirm it installed correctly.


#11

Fantastic! I’ll get around to it soon!


#12

new organelle and long time monome user here! also have an arc. looking forward to integrate them.


#13

how are your pd skills?


#14

I have a Monome 256 (I’ve had a 64 and 128 and caved to get the 256). I need to pull the trigger on an Organelle at some point though…


#15

I’ve been trying to search to no avail, so thought I’d resurrect this thread to ask… has anyone actually made a Patch to use the Monome Arc with the Organelle? I sure would love to use those two together (my PD skills aren’t good enough to come up with one myself.)


#16

We are preparing a set of them that will use ARC & Grids for use with Organelle
I have both and will be preparing the Pd portion, Kyle Werle will be doing the Graphics AI & Midi and Jeremy Wentworth will be doing the connective scripting
