bloody hell. expensive. but i think its gonna be one of those things u might just have to take a risk buying..

shoulda got a monome when the first lot came out, seem pretty cool... but if this tenori on is just midi thats ok, i guess... yamaha midi spec should be pretty though, and at least i dont have to mess around with max msp and that run time thing.. which has NEVER worked on either my 2 laptops or desktop..

suppose it might if i was on a mac..

Saw kieran hebden playing on one at the electric picnic looked pretty cool I'd like to see how it works as a controller not just a synth/sequencer

I am using one for two weeks now and the Midi-Out is somehow very limited (Note-On messages) - also the clock is in sync with Live - tried 4 different interfaces....

So i wrote this patch (The tenori-on helper), which makes the clock adjustable and I am working to implement some of remote-functions on one of the layers.

Started a blog about it a few days ago:

I don't want one of these things but if they aren't going to release it in the US then that is bad business. If any one country is known for spending money on shit they don't need it's the US.

I shwinged when I first saw the Tenori. Definitely not something I need, but what a bad ass toy! I have a feeling my productiveness would go out the door with one.

Well I have seen posts by users that it's more of a plastic toy than anything else and it's use for any kind of serious or prefessional music use is extremely limited.

so it's basically something to play with while high.

Very Disappointed with what tenori-on has turned out to be.
Good that we're moving in this direction, but no. I thought there was going to be a powerful synth behind the pretty lights.
Never-mind though.

I agree....

As a standalone "toy" it is very easy to learn and makes a lot of fun.

BUT as a remote-control for any other DAW it is in this version pretty useless.
1. The Midi-Clock is always behind.
2. It puts out Midi-Notes in a way, which is not useful to contol e.a. the remote functions in Ableton Live.

Thats the reason why I started programming the "tenori-on helper", which is working well for me in live-situations to control Live with it.

Still working on it...... still in a kind of 0.94 status.....but feel free to try it on you machine...8)
