    512! 512! Do I hear 1024?

    • John Park

      That’s pretty awesome, but I find it hard to think about 1024 without wanting to just jump ahead to 2048.

      Beautiful build, too. I think walnut/aluminum are my favorite wood/metal combination.

    1024? 2048? guys, c’mon – i don’t wanna actually ‘know’ how many buttons my monome has – it’s all about the “*” !
