hi, all!

i use a peavey pc1600 midi fader box as a midi joystick interface - it has
2 CV inputs, perfect for an x,y pair.  i can make the sticks send out
whatever i want - continuous control, sysex, plain hex, whatever.  it's a
cool box, a bit expensive $300US new, but it's a great interface.

something else i've looked into is single board computers from newmicros
(http://www.newmicros.com) - there's an easy mod to make it do midi instead
of regular serial port transmission.  it has 8 ADC's and a bunch of TTL
input/outputs.  all for about $70US.

anyway, just thought i'd let you know about some of the ideas i've been
working with.

take care,
