    lpd8 is way cheaper - tho i guess bigger and with more controls

    edit: ok - that was a crap suggestion as i see from your sig u already have one i would probably hack a gamepad or something if i just wanted 4 extra buttons

    i tried doing that with my DJ hero Xbox 360 controller but its wireless and i think it going through the wireless receiver made it so that it wasnt recognizable. idk but i couldnt get M-Joy to recognize anything but my lpd

    LPD8 seems like a no brainer but if you already had one then yea gamepad or something..

    I always keep this in mind when I need a few buttons.

    It uses the keyboard mappings so you don't have to worry about converting to MIDI.

    i have a novation nocturn for sale here:

    it's got more buttons than you need + knobs, but that's not always a bad thing the size is compact, and the price is low - if interested shoot me a PM.
