Kurzwiel box could be purchased seperately, and hacked to put out CV's >>

i`ve seen conductive foam and recording tape both suggested as ribbon
controller elements before in various diy places. i gather that both will
work but are not without their own problems. just something you`d have to try
out and see what works for you. i haven`t got a clue as to whether the
kurzweil ribbon is available separately. i would think that as an inherently
"analog" interface that you could get one to do c.v. output as easily as
rigging it for midi output. don`t know anything about its reported glissando
problem, either.
glad you liked the idea of the spst switches !
