I’m about to buy a used Monome 128 Grid. It’s one of the earlier ones with the walnut enclosure. But is there a way to check which edition the unit is, which year it was built? The owner says it’s a varibright. It’s probably either a 2012 or a 2013.
Here’s a link with photos of it;
I’m going to use it with a ansible, that is the plan eventually. Is the two totally compatible, or is there any features with the newest models that I will be missing?
I also read an old thread regarding power supply with eurorack, but do I get it right that with say the ansible it will draw a maximum of 200 mA +12V ?
I will consider ordering a new one if so! So is there anything I should be aware of?
I can’t wait to finally get my hands on one of these incredible things.
So be warned that the power draw that is listed for a module and the power draw with a grid or arc plugged in is different.
There is a module for powering grids (switch - also allows you to flip a grid between two different target modules quickly) and there is a board solution as well. They draw significant power as noted in the docs.
I’ll check out the offworld-1 aswell. But is the full power draw from a ansible with a Grid comnected: +12v - 200ma / -12v - 19ma / +5v - none? If so I should be fine with my Doepfer case for now according to modulargrid.
I also believe I heard the switch-module is discontinued, is that right?
I looked at the editions section and can’t seem to make a determination from that page. This for all purposes looks like the newest model, but instead of the black bottom I’ve seen most with, it has a grey bottom and seems a bit heavier. This was just purchased from Analog Haven.
