Three models: two fifty six (16×16), one twenty eight (16×8), and sixty four (8×8).

This new series evolved from the 40h which began as an interface for our own music performance and art practice. we also make available a kit version which allows users to create their own 40h-like devices.
Live sample cutters, math simulations, drum machines, generative controllers, tonal maps, games, visualizations. We make available all sources to encourage community contribution and enthusiasm. We share and thrive.
