Does anybody use midi controllers for sound design?
More specifically does anybody use a monome?
It's not your traditional sound design, but the guy over at SeeYouInSleep uses one all the time.
I use midi for standard stuff like filter sweeps and granulation control. The monome is an interesting idea. You could definitely use it to augment ambiences/drones in a more linear/musical kind of way and keep in time with the score (if there is one).
monomes are for music and you should never use them or any other midi controllers in sound ediiting
