This was a bold gamble which worked out - a clone of the Monome Teletype.
I'm still in the very early days of testing this and no idea where it will end up as a 'product' - it's pretty expensive to manufacture! I had to order special parts in to JLC, and the OLED alone is about £35. Hence it being a bold gamble: there was no way i could breadboard anything this complex, so I just double, triple and quadruple checked my schematic against the original, ordered and hoped for the best. But atm i'm just very excited that it turned on, allowed me to flash the firmware, connects to a keyboard and seems to light up and send CV in all the ways it should. I've been so fascinated by this module for a while and really looking forward to playing around with it*

Ha! fair question
In short, Teletype is a module which runs a concise scripting language. Commands can be live-coded, or stored as miniature 6-line instruction sets which run when they receive a trigger input. Outputs are 4x gates and 4x CV, and the language offers lots of options for working with patterns, maths, randomness, slew, etc
Originally built by those crazy fellows at Monome, a year or two ago they stopped internal production and made the whole project open-source for others to pick up the baton. 'Terminal' seems to be the main 3rd party version in eurorack land
It got me wondering if I could do a similar thing in GRAINS, perhaps using uLisp. Unfortunately uLisp for the Nano takes up basically all its memory, so we can't fit Mozzi in there too I think... Gotta look for a smaller Lisp. Maybe uLisp Zero, but it doesn't have many features.
