Make Noise – RENÉ Beta

Tony Rolando of Make Noise of North Carolina was in Chicago and brought over a RENÉ matrix sequencer for me to beta test for a couple days. Excuse the quality of the video – I had just gotten back into town from Pittsburgh, took a shower and Tony was at my door. I didn’t even decide to start recording until he was already explaining things. You can tell that my brain was melting and I was trying to keep up with such a feature heavy prototype. With different modes like forward, backwards, pendulum, quantizers, separate pages for X and Y gates, XOR gates, latch modes, and so many other things, this thing is controlled madness! I’ll try my best to answer any questions you may have. The finished product will be presented at our Synth Meet 8 on September 18/19th. More details on that later.

    I feel like I’d need a comprehensive feature guide (or spirit guide…preferably one withOUT an animal head. Scary.) before I could ride the matrix snake.

    Hi, I wonder how those touch pads actually work. Do you have a schematic for that or could you give me a hint how this works? I guess you have a microcontroller for all the different modes.
