heya, daniel, thanks for the link! I will check this out right away-- I use one instance of rejoice right now for my P5 glove and another for my joystick, it works fine but I really like the idea of a plugin for this as opposed to running another app for the joystick. (Plogue works for hid to midi too, but it's a little bit overkill for just that).

Any chance there will be P5 glove support also?

i hav'nt many info anout the p5 glove but if it send informations like other game controler it should work with joystickctrl

I used up to 3 instances of joystickctrl with 3 differents controlers in the same song
I have use it in particular with a whireless usb saitek joystick, with a steering wheel and a ps2 dansmat (with a ps2 to usb adapter)... maybe it works with the p5 glove, let me know

Well, after several false starts I did in fact get to control the AB fader via my joystick, and even got the buttons to work. All thanks to :


I am a happier man because of it.

Merci Beaucoups, for the help, and for the vst itself.

Thanks for bumping this.

I'm running the app, it shows my joystick's x-y position at the very top left but nothing is showing on the activity lights and the joystick isn't in the drop down menu. I can run my BCR through it, but...

The joystick is a Logitech extreme Pro 3-d, a few years old. It was cool to drag it out.

I'll try Rejoice, gonna be weird to search for.

joystickctrl looks to be working. From my all of 2 minutes of tweaking on it I can't seem to get the negative X/Y axis to work. Either way, pretty cool.

Rejoice looks like the winner, best interface, most detail, no glitchy controls. More playing, less posting.
