What do people use their grid controllers for? All I know is that I see things lighting up, but I have no idea what people actually do with them. How do I get from a colourful grid to music?
(There's one for sale at my local pawn shop, but that's not why I'm asking.)
@celesteh aren't they just a type of keyboard
? .. you mash your fingers on them and it sends events into your sound making things. How the sound making thing process the events is customisable
@celesteh I'm kind of interested in the hexagonal ones so transposing chords just involves moving a hand shape to a different place
@celesteh I have a maschine.. i use it to sample things, and then cut the samples on to pads .. then edit the slices and glue them back to make a new beat.
It's all very 4/4 though!
@celesteh I mostly tend to use them for various kinds of sequencing, especially for rhythmic patterns. I also use mine as a coarse level control occasionally. In the past I've used them as clip launchers and as a keyboardy drum pad note launcher thingy.
