Remember Axoloti? Maybe you should take a look …

I remember seeing Axoloti in 2014 at the Music Tech Fest hackday. It was a great idea for a new platform, and it went from strength to strength. It crowdfunded through Indiegogo and now it’s got a whole community behind it. If you like things like Reaktor or Max and hardware like Arduino, then imagine putting the two together. You have Axoloti.

Interested? Take a look at the Axoloti site.
