Standalone MIDI matrix sequencer

Lennon Luks gives an in-depth tour of the grid-based MIDI controller/sequencer he built as his final project at Western Carolina University.

This is me showing some of the capabilities of the MIDI controller that I designed for my senior project. It uses an ATMEGA644 microcontroller. 3000ish lines of C code. I’m much more of an engineer than an electronic musician, clearly.

The interface will remind many of the Monome project, as the input/display are quite similar – but the awesome sauce here is the machine’s ability to control MIDI devices without the need for an external computer. The onboard hardware offers a whole lotta possibilities via a single graphical LCD + switches – looks like much fun. Much more info available on the project page. [via Synthtopia]
