Modular has very definitely got to be the buzz word of 2016. Semi-modulars, Modular controllers, modular apps, and of course modular synths.
The MINE from Special Waves is designed to let the user configure their own original, customizable and updatable controller to suit their needs.
Currently two versions are available: Mine and Mines. Mine consists of a matrix of 8×8 (rows columns), that allows the insertion of a maximum of 64 modules; while MineS is an 8×4 matrix and can accommodate up to 32 modules.
A standard USB port allows to connect the controller to PC/Mac and this is also used to power the controller. When you connect many modules with LED the intensity of LED could be less bright. For this reason, we add a power supply connector that can be used to increase the light intensity of the LEDs when you consider it appropriate.
Additional expansion ports are nearby USB port and power supply plug; 2 more ports for expansion in Mine and 1 in MineS.
The Mine is will be launching soon on Kickstarter so keep an eye on the Special Waves page for more info.
