Even though I am currently nornsless, I am looking forward to what Odin’s days provide.

Yay for Norns-day and a super simple, yet musical, example.


#7

Official Bring-your-Norns-to-work-day every Wednesday starting today.


#8

THANK YOU for making this so very coding-beginner-friendly. I really appreciate it.


#9

will there be a norns study on creating or norns-purposing existing SC engines? (I understand why there might not be, just curious tho)


#10

I was curious as well and poked around in the repo. This should help: https://github.com/monome/norns/blob/09a5cb61d62036f731b49dfc271d599071261790/readme-script.md.


#11

Did someone mention it was Wednesday?


#12

I had the volume inadvertently muted and was Thinking Really Hard about why this was a video of knob turning and button pressing without sound.


#13

Tiny css nit, on the studies page, maybe some slight padding on the container, targeting small screens? Or not. Awesome work!


#14

So excited to follow these! Thanks!


#15

So cool! Super excited to get my norns and follow these studies. I always learn something new with momome gear!


#16

i just woke up so havent read anything yet but was there nothing on the Norns screen in the studies? Or am i still asleep? I heard sounds just nothing on the screen


#17

nothing on the screen. drawing comes later i think.


#18

thank you…


#19

If you feel bad you can reach into the SuperCollider demo script and copy the function that paints “Why?” on the screen which I did and it feels soooo much better even though its officially cheating.
