A few minutes ago, I just came across a company that’s effectively manufacturing one of the more outstanding ideas I’ve had in the past decade.
The idea occurred while I was developing an interface for a hardware controller in SC, and I discovered from the documentation that one could effectively control OS X using terminal commands, as well as any software application by using a combination of simulated keystrokes & applescript.
All of these (terminal & scripting based) controls could then be mapped to any of the hardware based controls (dials, controls switches, faders etc.) using SC, and for achieving the furthest outreach of seemingly endless possibility.
It turns out Monogram is already doing this… perfectly.
I’m here to tell you before I leave, everything is as over priced as it is aesthetically minimal, elegant, and clean.
With only SC, a few hours, and $30 towards a Korg nanoKontrol or similar, anyone could achieve close to or more than the exact same thing.
Here’s the product video, cut straight to the unveiling… it’s interesting, & it’s spark could flame in SC.
