Special Waves Mine is a Midi controller with a difference: You make it up on a blank board, using blocks, to construct a bespoke controller from the five available physical modules. The end result is a controller in the Push/Maschine vein, but “built” to your own specifications.
At launch, the controller will have a pad module, a two-button module, an encoder module, a pot module, and a slider module, with trackpad, LED display, and (most importantly) jogwheels apparently on the way. It will come in two permutations.
“Mine consists of a matrix of 8×8 (rows columns), that allows the insertion of a maximum of 64 modules; while MineS is an 8×4 matrix and can accommodate up to 32 modules,” say the people behind it.
“A standard USB port allows to connect the controller to PC/Mac and this is also used to power the controller. When you connect many modules with LED the intensity of LED could be less bright. For this reason, we add a power supply connector that can be used to increase the light intensity of the LEDs when you consider it appropriate.”
