Approaching: norns


#10

Oh my oh my oh my. I’m in love.


#11

Even Monome product reveals are a thing of stupefying beauty.


#12

The excitement is real, and the possibilities of Norns along side a modular with W/, 301 and/or Assimil8or are staggering in the expanse of sonic vistas they will open. Stunning design, @tehn.


#13

battery powered?..


#14

I don’t really know what to add so I’ll go with…

:open_mouth::open_mouth::open_mouth:


#15

Today I learned:
“The Norns (Old Norse: norn, plural: nornir) in Norse mythology[1] are female beings who rule the destiny of gods and men. They roughly correspond to other controllers of humans’ destiny, such as the Fates, elsewhere in European mythology.”

Here I thought it was a reference to Creatures.


#16

In time…


#17

Beautiful design. Well done! Looking forward to watching the introduction.


#18

Not so sure about that bit!


#19

oh my god, that interface is so brilliant — loop points for speed of the w/-style tape got me. and i love that the video is a tml revisit.

timelines all parallel, all sequential, all circular. i’m so excited.


#20

Which is exactly what sold me on it, I spent so much time playing those games. <3


#21

This might very well be one of the most beautiful things i’ve seen. Ever.


#22

Man, really beautiful!

And like @Dan_Derks mentions, vibes me out to early arc days as well :slight_smile:

Can’t wait!


#23

i can think of an explanation for all lines except these 3…

knows something.
loves birds.
waits patiently.

curious how it “controls voltages” - via some unannounced expander? trilogy/ansible/teletype via usb?
scrolling through lines of lines makes me think you can make loops with any apps and then transfer/incorporate them freely


#24

Really beautiful - is may 3 the release date?


#25

knows something.

Internal recording storage?

loves birds.

… maybe a built-in microphone perhaps?

waits patiently.

This has one has me stumped… maybe there’s no “on” or “off” state, but it doesn’t use up any battery life if it isn’t doing anything?


#26

or maybe it means it reacts to something (if there is a built in microphone maybe it reacts to what it hears?)


#27

You guys are hilarious. I don’t know if I’m more excited for the device, or the continued speculation. :popcorn:


#28

absolutely beautiful sounds @tehn!


#29

I am not very familiar with any Monome stuff except Teletype, and I am mightily confused right now. Curious, interested, but confused.

I at least gather that this is sort of a general (musical) purpose, programmable/scriptable doodad of some sort.
