About the joystick object, any recommandation about a nice (cheap < 40USD) joystick with lot of buttons? Can the joystick object can see more than one stick (like for the double joystick control)?
Anyone use such a thing for live performance?
i want one! sounds fun.
maybe you can get a good one even cheaper second hand. not sure of any models or anything, but i always buy hardware second hand.
thnaks for the tip though, i reckon a joystick control must be so cool. i'm definately gonna try it out. here's hoping the joystick object is OSX friendly.
God, I now own a Saitek joystick, my audio synthetic life is changed! Back to the old times where you have to "practice" with your instrument.
With windows Xp, the installation is straightforward, and the joystick object worked so easily. In 2 minutes, everything is done.
The Saitek P880 was recommended by a friend which use this gamepad to control micromachinning with laser. 2 analog joystick and a D-pad + 12 button. Everything work in PD except the P-pad (like the first Nintendo and Sega gamepad). The pad was 30$ CAN. You can use many different joystick with joystick object ... up to 16, that's mean 16 players. Some arithmetic and straight to ctlout gives you very nice possibility. Specially for spatial reproduction.
Anyway 30$ CAN is better than 300~400$ CAN for the Korg kaospad with two midi control output!
