I’m thinking a MAX7221 LED driver, a couple of 4051s, an ATMega328p to
control the lights/get the inputs for the Monome’s brain. I don’t think
programming shouldn’t be very difficult at all.
I’m happy to set up a MOS8580 SID board for the synthesis part, wot with me
already working on that sort of thing… for that authentic retro 8 bit
feel, too. I have quite a few SID chips so we could easily use 3 of them,
which would give us 9 voices total. Set it up with a version of the
pentatonic scale, set up different rows with different waveforms, octaves
If someone wants to go mad making some other kind of synth though, I’ll
happy excuse myself.
Probably not going to be much use with the physical monome itself though!

The idea of making a massive Monome came up. Of course, as this is the
best idea EVER, we have to do it.
We have a month. Easy.
I have put together a basic plan for scale. The person is a child or
small human, the thing itself will be about 1m x 1m!
