Time To Say Goodbye

Today I decided to sell my Tenori-On.
If you are interested, here is the link:
Ebay-Auction for the Tenori-On.
The reason is very simple: I am a proud owner of a Monome 256 and I am finishing my self-written software for it very soon..:-)
I did not see any development in the Tenori-On during the last year and I decided to write my own software. It is called "Brontologik4". I keep you informed about the release of this software and I will post a link here.
Here is a first video of it:

The Tenori-On at the Whitney

Yesterday I was playing together with Helga Davis and Lukas Ligeti at the Whitney Museum in New York. Everything went very well and we were using all of our crazy controllers including the Tenori-On..:-)
Here is our setup:

On the left side is my computer. I was using Max/Msp and Ableton Live with an RME Audio-Interface and the Emagic MT4 as the Midi-interface. My controllers were the Buchla Lightning II and the Tenori-on. On the right side is Lukas computer, also with Ableton Live controlled by Buchlas Marimba-Lumina.
In the next picture you can see the Display for the Lightning II in the foreground:

This time I also made an improvisation with the Tenori-On using only the Midi-Out to control different Synthesizers and Samplers in Ableton Live - this was a lot of fun !

Here is one photo in action during the soundcheck:

The Volume Layer

Actually, I am not very happy with the volume-control from the tenori-on. (R4)
I do not like the vertical style and I cannot do anything else on this page.
So I decided to make a kind of mixer-page on layer8.
Layer8 is one of the Random-Layers and I am not using all 4 of them anyway.
In the moment the 2 top rows are free for new ideas, but the other led´s work as kind of volume-slider. See here how you can set volumes:

The animation of the layer doen`t matter at all, so I put the animation-style to "simple" Size1, that it doesn`t bother me.

You find the new Volume Layer in the new update 0.96, which is availible on the left side of this blog. here is how it looks:
