Sorry if this is redundant, but I couldn’t find a clear answer searching around: I’ve got an old walnut -case 64 grid knocking around, and am looking to add a sequencer to my eurorack setup. Ansible looks terrific (no 5V needed! woohoo!), and I know the varibright 128s are the default/optimal grids nowadays, but I’m curious: If I plugged my 64 into an ansible, would it work at all? If so, what big differences would there be? (I found the other big thread sort of about this, but it was unclear if, say, you’d end up with an 8-step sequence instead of a 16, only be able to see 8 steps of a 16-step, have to use some paging setup, or what.) If not, is there such a thing as an alternative firmware that might work with a 64? Does anyone know of something in the works, officially or unofficially?
To put my needs in context: the alternative I’m considering is a pgh lifeforms micro sequence. So, I’m very happy for it to be an extremely simple sequencing app; unfortunately, my programming chops stop at MaxMSP, so it would have to already exist.
Thanks for the tip! Need to do a little more on the research front, first. (Namely: I can’t seem to find any concrete documentation of how WW would play along with the 64 monobright. Seen that video of tehn’s, which seems to show some unlit button pressing doing something, but would like to find some more concrete docs so I know what I’m getting into…)
WW/MP/ES work with 8x8 and monobright. ansible does not. and generally even though they work, the experience is not as good given the interface really takes advantage of variable brightness to help you navigate the interface.
I want to get my old 64 monome(8x8 grid) something to play. Is it still compatible with current hardware/software? Is it monobright and then not compatible with ansible?
Do other than monome make compatible hardware(modular) for it?
