I'm making a synth that uses an audio and "CV" patching matrix to make it a bit like a modular synth. I have an 8x8 audio matrix of sources and destinations and 8x8 CV matrix. I like to use knobs to control each of these patch points so I need about 128 virtual knobs.
Having 128 hardware knobs is too big and bulky for my application. I want to have 8 or 16 encoders with "pick-up" with some kind of page selection so I can access all 128 virtual knobs.
I've been looking for a suitable controller that would work with the axoloti but haven't been able to find one yet.
The MidiFighter Twister is the closest but can only do 64 controllers.
The Kenton KillaMix can do 144 controllers (16 pages of 9 encoders) but each page is a different midi channel and as far as I can tell the axoloti only supports 1 midi channel.
The Livid Instruments Code v2 looks like it would work, it's a bigger than I'd ideally like, but it's not available.
The Novation SL mk2 doesn't have encoder pick-up between templates ("pages").
Does anyone know of a suitable controller? Alternatively there's the option of making something from scratch but that's a bunch of work that could be too much for me.
Any ideas gratefully received!
