Another turn in the software begets hardware paradigm, except this one is rather clever. The new Rhizome is a minimal Windows XP install running a customized front end and sequencer / host software with, get this, a 24 inch LCD monitor built in. The case is customized around the screen and then the front end is then customized around the case, allowing for the unique interactions between the knobs and screen. This will apparently host whatever VSTi you can throw at it and it’s going to be interesting hearing the details as they come out about the Rhizome.
