    Default Old USB Keyboard question...

    Hey all,
    I have an old USB keyboard laying around and would like to turn it into a simple drum pad.
    The problem with programs like GlovePie is that they change the input of all keyboards, I just want the external one to do that so I can still type on my laptop keyboard.
    Can someone help me out?

    Seems really tricky to do, but I'll try my best.

    yep - it does a bit... much simpler if you have some spare gamepads around that you could use. almost any will work with the right usb adapter.

    i picked up a usb gamepad for about 2gbp i think that i used to experiment with.
