Modular Diary – 059

Mark Boyd started a µModular Collection (tiny modules that are simple to use and as light as possible on CPU) on the Audulus forum a few days ago and the thread has exploded with the addition of more than 100 modules within the space of a few days. I think it might be a real game changer, especially when using Audulus on an iPad where space is limited (focussed). Robert Syrett’s comment in the thread that the little modules made him think of Sushi got me thinking of an iA Writer post a few weeks ago describing the raw and the cooked aspects of developing their app over the course of the seven years since it was first introduced. With the Audulus µModules the space and processing constraints seem to have sparked a process of creative distillation of many of the inspiring modules that having been appearing on the forum recently.

That also got me thinking back to another aspect of the Rob Hordijk video that I recently came across – how he attempted to reduce the number of controls on his Benjolin as much as possible while still maintaining a high degree of functionality and variation.
