rove and polygomé running on a monome 128. it is divided into two virtual monome 64s by griddle (github.com/artfwo/griddle), a spanner/splitter router app written in python.
running inside griddle is pages (docs.monome.org/doku.php?id=app:pages), a java-based utility that executes multiple applications on the same monome. griddle turned out to be overkill, since the same thing could have been accomplished just with pages, but i was testing griddle's integration with other apps.
i setup two external application pages in ... pages, and then connected rove (github.com/wrl/rove), an mlr-style sample cutter, and polygomé (docs.monome.org/doku.php?id=app:polygome), a midi instrument. rove is on the left half, polygomé on the right.
i created a basic rove session, with rhodes samples from smyth (vimeo.com/jredsmyth). i then created a sample instrument in renoise (renoise.com) using built-in percussion samples and effects, then connected it to polygomé's midi i/o. this was my attempt to try some of the things in this video: vimeo.com/17026786. took me an hour to figure out sample keyzones, since i'm new to renoise, but i got the basic idea.
after that, i setup jackrack with delay/distortion parameters handled by my modded korg nanokontrol, and . . . started improvising. i forgot to record the audio within the computer, so i apologize for this cell phone's audio quality.
the whole project, from start to finish--even creating and editing this video with openshot--was accomplished with gentoo linux. even the max/msp application was running on gentoo, albeit within wine. monome users, rejoice: you don't have to spend thousands of dollars on proprietary software and hardware.
