Teletype Algorithmic Ecosystem - 18HP


Teletype is a dynamic, musical event triggering platform.

In Teletype, scripts are assigned to each of the eight trigger inputs. From here, one can set CV values (four outputs) and trigger gates (four outputs), with extended functionality for pattern manipulation, amount of slew, randomness, sequences, basic arithmetic, stacks, delays, and much more. The CV input and a parameter knob can be integrated into the scripts, and an internal metronome makes for standalone self-running systems.

Scripts are modified with a USB keyboard which plugs into the front panel. The coding syntax is simple and easy to learn-- tutorials, video, and reference pages are available. Teletype is shipped with numerous ready-to-run musically explorative patches. It can also run without the keyboard attached-- one might rename "editing" to "precomposition", or leave the keyboard plugged in for live coding.

Teletype's pattern creation can happen in various ways, including a full-screen "tracker" mode which will be familiar to many.

Remote control of monome trilogy (white whale, meadowphysics, and earthsea) modules is possible through a rear ribbon cable connection. Various parameters of these modules (such as playback position, sync, reset, and preset recall) can be scripted into the trigger inputs on Teletype. 

Note: free firmware update required for trilogy modules, and a pin header must be soldered on. header and cable included with Teletype.

All the scripts are stored in internal flash, allowing bootup and execution to be instant. This is not a computer, it's a digital algorithmic ecosystem, thoroughly designed for the modular environment, with an 80's terminal sensibility.
