midiphy MatriX Mechanical Grid Graphical Sequencer (Sneak Preview)

This video, via Hawkeye, captures a sneak preview of the upcoming midiphy MatriX Mechanical Grid Graphical Sequencer, in conjunction with the midiphy SEQ v4+.

The MatriX extends both midiphy’s SEQ v4+ (legacy 16×16+X BLM Mode) step sequencer, as well as the LoopA sequencer (with an upcoming firmware extension). Using the MatriX, polyphonic sequences can be entered graphically, including force-to-scale “auto-correction”.

Details are still to come at the midiphy site.

  1. “Midify” hardware is ingenious and beautiful!
    A pity it is only available via DIY.

    Wonder do the devs realize that they would most definately sell a lot if they where actually manufacturing?

    1. You have to comply with a bunch of complex laws if selling a finished product which don’t apply to kits of parts intended for integration in some system in which case the compliance is the responsibility of the builder.

      Failure to spend at a minimum tens of thousands certifying compliance can and does result in fines in the millions of dollars.

      1. Spending money on permits and certifications…. welcome to the big boy club.
        As altruistic as your comment reply seems, that whole process is immature.

        However on the other hand there are groups of people who like DIY kits because if something breaks they want to know how to fix it themselves. Which I am 100% in favor of. Because these companies who cannot afford compliance permits, they can’t afford proper technical support like mutable instruments. Some of these hack companies make really good ingenious products. However they lacked professionalism to take it to the next level. The Matrix here it is an excellent product and it represents many hours of hard work from the developers and programmers over an extended period of time, this has evolved into what it is today. Sometimes by the end of development people are so worn down they cannot wrap their brains around finding additional sources of financing to have a real, manufactured product.

        With that being said, there are plenty of third-party DIY assembly outfits or companies out there. You could pay a third party to put this device together for you. I’m recommending this for everyone who doesn’t want to build it themselves.

        I’m recommending everyone get one of these.

      2. indeed, but then the calculation should be cost of compliance vs. additional total margins generated by the sales of fully built devices, as a break even. It’s a risk assessment somehow, but at the same time, it can open huge markets in the EU.

      3. This sounds like a European problem. Getting things to market on this side of the pond is not that needlessly difficult.

        1. Most Europeans don’t regard safety and compliance with emr regulations etc as a problem. It’s a cultural thing, I suppose.

          1. Well said, regulations and compliance means standarised safety, as onerous and difficult as it may for manufacturers.

        2. I don’t really understand what you mean?
          Selling stuff in the US is a nightmare with the risk of getting sued for every user error!
          FS compliance is very similar to CE compliance with the difference that if you meet CE compliance you as a manufacturer have done your part, whereas in the US you can get sued for serving a hot cup of coffee without explicitly stating that the coffee was actually warm!
