Someone make one
dude
modcan has one and flights barbones packs would/could be assembled fairly easily or i am sure someone could be paid to assemble the kit in grand 5u stylee.

does the name sduck ring any bells?

When I was a kid, I called an electronics store and asked the lady what joysticks they had in stock. She thought I was being perverted.

Just thought I'd share.

Cheers,

....whereupon she was summarily dismissed, for providing unsatisfactory customer service. The investigators say it was precisely there that she began her downward spiral into madness.


I hope you are satisfied. Good Day sir.

I SAID GOOD DAY!!!!

Maybe that lady was onto something? eek!

There's always the Dotcom joystick adapter and the pedal interface.

That's cool and all, but there is no actual joystick module in MU format. That's what I want. How come everyone else gets one?

BOOOO! Sorry, but modulars already sound like video games. I don't want mine to look like one, too.



The Q142 strikes me as a particularly clumsy option. And heaven knows what my electronics store lady would think if she saw one . . .

Cheers,

I bet Todd Fletcher could build you up one of those dual choices modules, and probably for a good price. It wasn't expensive - 2 joysticks from devi ever - 70$, 2 choices barebones packs - 80$ (I think), panel from FPE - 90$, jacks and switches and knobs - maybe 45$ from mouser (not sure - I had most of it on hand already). Say 299.95$ - sound reasonable? (I'm not making up a price for Todd - I'm not connected to his business in any way - that's just about what mine cost)

But yes, it would be cool if .com or someone would produce a commercial version - for the right price I'd think it'd sell really well.

I've barely used mine yet - had some troubleshooting to do (on a different module) before really testing it out, and then we had this stupid flood, and now my modular is on its side in the dining room while the downstairs gets dried out and fixed. My whole office/studio is in boxes in the dining room - yuck.

Sorry to hear it, sduck.

Can you post your FPD file?

What would be the requirements?
VCAs? DC voltages out?
I have multiple joystick modules (DIY) in my system but all of them sit on a table remote from the cab. I use them a lot for a keyboard replacement and filter sweeps, etc. - more live control. I would think that with the sticks at 90 degrees this would be more difficult. Haven't tried so I don't know.
Experiences?

I can.

Note that this design is tied to these specific joysticks I had, and most likely won't work at all with other kinds. But feel free to change it around as you see fit - there's a lot going on with this panel, and lots that could be changed. Space is a big issue with the amount of hardware involved - everything fit, but some of it was "just barely". This is one of those design where if I only had the extra inch that the MU format has, it would have been a lot easier - and I could probably have fit all the features of both choices modules on there.

I made mine out of a vintage late '60's Tektronix Joystick. I mostly use it for real-time control of a filter or with my CVS and a software Jag. I need a stand-alone joystick as I could never find my way through all the cables to a panel-mounted joystick. Joystick panel design, schematics, and photos are on my webpage. - Dave

MU joystick would be cool - I wouldn't want anything to complicated, just a MU version of the Doepfer joystick would be cool.

The A-174 costs £63 (€75/$95) which I appreciate is very cheep and MU manufactures would not be able to match.

Indeed. $400 for one joystick though.

i never got the whole x/y joystick/pad thing... ive had the capability on more than a few synths and always ended up favoring the knobs. maybe im weird


seriously, i just don't get it

perhaps.

but you'd have to have some mad etch-a-sketch skills to do the same thing with knobs as you can with a joystick (or other multi-axis controller).

we're not worthy

I like the idea of a joystick or 2 as part of a "controller" module, sitting in a little slanted box in front of my modular, patched to wherever. IMO, having a joystick mounted at 90 deg would be kind of awkward compared to a knob. And practically every CV input I have is already associated with a dedicated knob.

Yeah, maybe the module is a just a wireless receiver of some sort; allowing for various transmitting joysticks, or whatever form-factor of input controller

Think "Wiimote."

...and then, of course, there's this.

I like the idea of the Wiard model 311:

but not stuck in a rack somewhere. I want it right in front of me, like a keyboard or other control surface.
