This is interesting. It's a modular controller, that holds up to 32 spaces. it has the following.

• Pot Module: 270° rotary potentiometer (1x1 position)
• Pad Module: Pressure sensitive Pad with customizable RGB Led (1x1 position)
• 2 Buttons Module: 2 toggle on/off Pads with customizable RGB Led (1x1 position)
• Encoder Module: Infinite Encoder with mappable Push button and Green Led Ring (1x1 position)
• Slider Module: 60mm travel linear potentiometer (1x3 position)
• Blank Module: For covering the empty spaces on the case (1x1 position)

It's a kick stater as of now for $285 US and ships November 2019. I'm not sure how much each modular piece will cost separately or how long they will last. Also it's not a stand alone unit, so it must be tether to a computer. If they could, sell the modular parts for a good price and make Mine S a standalone unit. They could really create a sustainable, new market for controllers.

The concept is good and it has many different applications. Live, Music Productions, Lighting, and Photo/Video Editing. I would still need some kind of hands on interactions, to determine the build quality and overall feel of it. As a wish list request: I would say, create a Mine S with that can hold Sixth-Four modules, that way the end user wouldn't have to buy two of them.

Over Rating: Wait to See, unless you're feeling adventurous.

If it's class compliant this thing could be pretty cool for Ios users. Agree standalone would sell a lot better especially if it had cv out.

Found this video from 2016, which shows more about it. In the video is shows how two units can be linked together. As well as showing two models: The Mine 64 modules and Mine S is 32 modules. Also shows how the software works. I've seen some demo's but I really want to see how the unit and modules holds up to finger drumming.

As far as CV: Perhaps a MIDI to CV out converter will work?

That looks pretty slick actually. I use a doepfer midi to cv converter that’s pretty configurable. Kenton 1 in, 5 out active midi thru box and I hang the doepfer unit off one of the thru’s
