From Music Hack Day
I thought about calling it The Chaos Grid but Korg's K-Os Pad kinda has the whole Chaos concept covered. It's pretty janky, but it shows the types of direction you can go in if you've got a controller unbounded by a heavyweight DAW. Hopefully it doesn't crash on stage and I don't have any of those bugs that make very loud screeching noises. That would be bad.
The top row of the Launchpad is used for selecting instruments. The rightmost column selects "modes" specific to that instrument. The grid controls the current mode. All instruments run concurrently, so you can reasonably have a rack of 7 instruments, with the 8th instrument slot being reserved for the "mixer" instrument, which doesn't actually mix anything but it lets you change the tempo (generally crashing the application in the process).
Everything is written in ChucK and no samples are used.
