“The real sign of an indie project to me is in the sound”. Steve Weiss, product designer, Zacuto USA.
On a quest to discover a successful way to of doing double system sound that was also inexpensive and worked well with DSLR’s Steve found the personal handy recorder by Zoom, the H4n. This device includes onboard condenser stereo microphones, XLR combo input jacks and delivers phantom power.
After a lively discussion on the best practices for sound recording, the guys run the H4n through a variety of set-ups to emulate the possible scenarios that take place in the field. Scott Lynch presents a full demonstration of how to sync the H4n audio with footage from the 5D MarkII.

It is one thing to adapt max patches for maxforlive but it is another thing entirely to construct them so they can handle multiple instances without stepping all over each other by accessing the same data. Then there is the issue of telling monomeserial which instance has control of the monome hardware.
I wanted to make it elegant to use. For example, if you click on a track in live that has a monome application running, that monome application is in focus on the hardware. It is this level of integration that makes maxforlive so appealing. So, now you can run as many obos, polygomes, stepfilters, or automatorgators as you like, and the monome switches between them effortlessly.
