Polynome 5000: A monome midi controller

Colin Mann of Los Angeles created a 64-button RGB monome midi controller sporting 6 slide faders, an IR sensor, a touch-sensor strip, 4 arcade buttons, a 4-digit nixie display, 6-port USB hub, and more. It’s sweet!

After more hours than I’d like to admit, even if I actually knew how many, I’m done. I started this, believe it or not, before the APC40 was even announced, and at the time there weren’t many products out there like it. Now, obviously it would make more sense to just buy one of those products, nevertheless, where are you gonna get an RGB monome with a nixie tube display that takes OSC commands? Exactly.

Colin’s project writeup is extremely detailed, check it out.
