Originally a USB Playstation-style video game controller device with dual thumb sticks and multiple buttons that was fully reembodied and repurposed as a performance controller. Four rings on strings are slid along the length of the primary channel to provide continuous control of assignable parameters in software. Silver tabs act as assignable buttons and a rotary knob in the middle selects operating modes. Driver software written in Max/MSP provides assignable MIDI output.
