Software Description

Androidome is a portmanteau of Android + monome, android being the popular operating system for mobile phones, and the monome being a minimalist instrument/controller/interface/toy. Like the monome, the app itself doesn't actually do a whole lot out of the box, it simply provides an interface for sending and receiving data to and from your computer.

What do I need to run it?

  • Android powered phone running Android 2.1 or higher.
  • A host computer (Mac/PC) capable of at least running Max/MSP 5 runtime
  • Both of the above to be on the same wireless network.

How do I use it?

  1. First of all, install the app. Get the latest version from the Android Market by searching for "monome" on your phone, or if you are viewing this site on your phone, by visiting this link.
  2. If you don't already have it, install Max Runtime on the host machine, available free from the Cycling '74 website.
  3. Start the application on your phone.
  4. Download and run AndroidomeRouter[v2].maxpat on the host machine. This opens a channel to allow apps to communicate with the phone. You need to leave this running in the background for the app to work.
  5. Enter your host's IP address in the box marked Host on your phone. If you don't know how to find this, this site will talk you through it.
  6. Open your desired monome patch (list of apps can be found on the monome site), and set the appropriate prefix on your phone.
  7. Click the Connect to Max button on the phone.
  8. Enjoy!
