Actually, that's pretty close Andy - thanks! :thumbup:

I assumed all of this range of products would require a deep cavity, but as you can see from this photo of all its parts, the control unit is entirely separate from the resistive strip, which is in turn only a couple of mm thick.

Hmmm... this might work!!

Whoops - sorry for the hijack Bob ;)

Also sorry for the hijack, but to continue....

How are you going to programme pitch bend or vibrato, Martin? It seems to have 4 modes, each with specific CCs and channels (targetting Kaoss Pad etc), and no obvious way to program it. Interested to know what you have in mind...

Ah, I haven't looked into that closely yet Bill :beamup:

However, most DAWs allow you to convert one MIDI message into another, so I would hope that these specific CCs can be convinced to generate pitchbend information :headbang:

OK, I see - if you are going through a DAW or Bome’s MIDI translator etc, it would be fairly straightforward. I was assuming you wanted a hardware solution.
