Gamepad - -

Hey there! i have an old microsoft sidewinder gamepad that steers when tilting the device to front/back/left/right. is there a way to get this one to produce midi notes to use it as an midi controller?

Not with Bome MIDI Translator Pro, however I wrote a program called MIDIBuddy that understand some joysticks. It turns these messages into System Exclusive messages in a specific format that Bome MIDI tranlator may be able to use to convert to notes.


If interested, send me an email.
