Monome 512 Available Via Limited Auction


Monome.org has announced that they are auctioning four limited edition monome 512 controllers through April 10th.

Here's what they have to say about the monome 512:

several close friends encouraged the endeavor, so we extended the proposition to a few more. ten were made in total, four of which we’re offering to the public through an auction. we don’t see a broad market for such an obtuse (yet beautiful) device but saw this as an opportunity to actually bring it into existence, if only on a microscopic scale. we do not expect to make these again. much hand wiring was involved, much wood finishing and care for detail, and in the end we’ve been reminded that we began monome as artists, not business people. so, here it is.

Specifications:

  • custom designed and milled enclosure from a solid block of black walnut.
  • custom machined aluminum top plate, clear anodized.
  • orange LED lighting, matching earlier monome series devices.
  • custom laser cut and etched rubber slip mat, keeping the device scratch-free and stable on the work surface.
  • two monome two fifty six devices, housed in one enclosure, internal usb hub. one power jack, one usb jack.
  • tested for full speed operation. no latency disadvantage compared to standard (un-hub-ed) monome devices, which are designed for incredibly fast communication and low latency.
  • mappable in monomeserial easily for dual-256 operation or single 32×16 matrix (or even smaller sub-matrixing with custom configuration.)

See the monome.org site for details.
