Manta is a controller with 48 touch sensors (buchla like) and also sensor sliders . all with LEDs – so it might be a nice monome “killer” or something different. not really cheap$675, but looks like a cool Controller..
* 48 touch sensors in a 6 X 8 hexagonal array – each sensor can independently send both continuous control data and note-on/off events with velocity sensitivity simultaneously
inspired by matrixsynth post.
btw: Like these noise sources as well:
