SoundSquare Standoff: Monome vs. Tenori-On | Tech news blog - CNET

.:SoundSquare Standoff: Monome vs. Tenori-On:. has a very nice article that outlines a comparison between the Monome and the soon to be released Tenori-on. Good to see some major news outlets picking up on these otherwise obscure product releases.


The latest testament to the geek appeal of blinking pixels are two handheld electronic musician interfaces called the Monome and the Tenori-On. Both are slated for a new release in the next few months and while they have a lot in common conceptually, there are a few key differences between the two that I'll explore here.

Even if you couldn't care less about electronic music, these products demonstrate stunning interface design (not to mention eye candy). Remember, it was an obscure music interface company named Jazz Mutant that pioneered the multi-touch screen interface long before the iPhone came to town.
