A modular-synth interface for your computer!
rePatcher is an Arduino shield that allows you to “repatch” your Max/MSP or Pure Data patches with a 6 x 6 patchbay matrix. It also has 6 general purpose control knobs for modifying parameters in your patch. Since it does all of this over the Arduino’s USB, it can be hacked to work with any other program that can accept a serial stream.
So, if you’re tired of hiding behind your laptop while performing amazing electronic music, use rePatcher to show the world exactly what you’re doing on that screen. Explore your creations in an entirely different way, and save yourself the hassle of ‘clicking and dragging’. Or, if you just want a few generic controls and switches that easily integrate into Pure Data, rePatcher will get you there.
(Note: If you don’t already have an Arduino, you’ll have to purchase one separately in order to use rePatcher.)
