In a message dated 99-11-29 17:40:44 EST, you write:

<< Most importantly, is this a big deal to build?
Am I not just adjusting voltages using a wide range of variable resistors? >>

such a controller box built to motm type specs would be a bit of work
although probably no new engineering would be required, stuff like sample
/hold ( think analog kybd ),etc. are pretty well developed circuitry. if you
wanted to go with a "hack" job just to get something to "feel" and decide
about working on further, you are pretty much right, its all just voltages
and resistances. even something as simple as a few batteries, a couple of
slide pots, a few knobs and a cheap surplus joystick could be cobbled up
quickly but could be surprisingly useful. not sophisticated, not elegant but
it`ll work.......
