The original hardware and firmware projects were initiated by @tehn at monome and grew with contributions from members of the lines community, including @csboling, @ngwese, @scanner-darkly, @samdoshi, @burnsauce, and many others. See the individual upstream submodule repositories for more details.

The VCVRack-specific code is a separate community effort; the above parties should not be expected to support or warranty these ports or take any blame for its imperfections. @dewb wrote the virtual grid module, the hardware simulation layer, and the VCV module wrappers and software UX for white whale, meadowphysics, earthsea, and teletype. Advice and encouragement from the lines community and the adjacent Teletype Study Group Discord was instrumental.

@dndrks contributed a wealth of material to the documentation site, including the quick-start patches.


The firmware code for the hardware modules are licensed under the version 2 of the GPL. Panel graphics incorporate elements of hardware panel PDFs licensed CC-BY-SA 3.0.

Full source for the plugin is available at The new code in this repository is also licensed under version 2 of the GPL.

This project benefits from the inclusion of the following source libraries with GPL-compatible licenses:

Naturally, this project also couldn't exist without the VCV Rack SDK and the many open-source libraries that it depends on.
