This is an average gaming joystick from the mid 2000's. I bought it in 2005 to play stupid games with and haven't used it until very recently.
I hooked it up to my Macbook to figure out how I could use this in context with other programmes. After messing about for a while, I came up with a system where I use the X-axis for formant control, the Y-axis for pitch, the shoot button for the midi note triggering and the speed controllers for intensity of the pitch curve. Very unusual but insanely fun!
