Introducing the Chomp: the bite-sized, affordable MIDI box for creative music projects

February 3, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Max Justicz has announced a new DIY MIDI controller ‘brain’, the CHOMP, that looks awesome.

Basically, the CHOMP (Configurable Hardware Open-source MIDI Platform) is a cheap board you plug switches and pots into to create custom MIDI controllers.

Features:

  • Completely open-source.
  • Affordable ($50).
  • Compatible with ANY MIDI configuration.
  • 48 Inputs/Outputs!
  • Made and assembled in the USA.
  • Programmable
  • Tiny, only 100mm x 60mm x 25mm

Here’s what Max Justicz has to say about the CHOMP:

It has come to my attention that the world needs an inexpensive (but extraordinarily solid) MIDI controller.  That’s where the Chomp comes in.  With zero technical skills, you can hook up dozens of buttons, knobs, switches, and sensors to control endless parameters of digital software.

The Chomp is the first open-source MIDI controller that’s been designed right.  Other MIDI controllers on the market are proprietary, difficult to use, non configurable, and most of all: expensive. The only other commercial option available ships exclusively from Europe and costs the US equivalent of $240.

But because it’s Arduino powered and completely user programmable, the Chomp is more than an awesome MIDI controller.  With new code, Chomp can do just about anything: play Bach on a digital keyboard, or help you along in a live musical performance.
