As someone that chops up samples a lot, I love the new revamped Simpler. However, I cant help but wonder how I can incorporate my monome into the Simpler slices? I imagine I’m not the first one to ponder this, but couldn’t find any threads.
I got a Push 2, which obviously works great with the Simpler. However, I sometimes drum on the Push 2 with my right hand and play Simpler slices on a midi keyboard with my left hand, which makes me wonder if I can incorporate the monome in some useful way (instead of the keyboard for slices).
Perhaps the Simpler API was open enough for programmers to somehow attach monome functionality to it, through a Max device?
If not, I’m sure there is a way to make the monome function as a basic midi “keyboard”.
This would be a very basic approach to using the monome to trigger the Simpler slices; this would at least put my slices on a grid instead of less intuitive keyboard keys. However, I’m not actually sure how you set up the monome as a basic midi-note controller (or how you set the current octave so you can control where your slices start on the pads). [Can someone point me to a max-for-live device that gives the monome this basic midi functionality?]
