Interesting touch-sensitive mixers with a LED matrix under the faders, Soundwidgets writes –
The Stribe’s original name was “xenome” – a nod to Brian Crabtree’s amazing monome 40h project, which inspired me to build the first Stribe in the summer of ’07. For many years, I’d been thinking about and experimenting with alternative interfaces, but it was Brian’s monome 40h that made me realize such a project could be successful without needing to be “discovered”, then manufactured and marketed by some huge conglomerate. Along the way I changed the name to avoid confusion and to more accurately describe the Stribe’s function. Stribe means “stripe” or “striped cloth” in Danish.
Because Brian’s monome is an open project, monome.org contains tons of great information including schematics for their circuits, the firmware source, the Max/MSP applications… everything is there to study and learn. By poking through their designs, circuits and code, and the freely provided
“how this works” Max/MSP examples, I was able to understand the basic ingredients that would be needed for my own project.
