Digging deeper into Flora for monome norns – On-demand

Level: Some experience of norns required

In the second Flora workshop, you will build your own custom L-system algorithms using Flora’s UI and sequence the script using the preset (PSET) sequencer. The script’s community gardening feature will also be covered to give you a new way to share your sequences with a worldwide audience.
