    Default XY Pad

    hey guys, does anyone know where i can get an Xy Touchpad?

    i plan on using one to mod my nanokontrol to become like an MPD26, but with an XY pad to take the place of two sliders

    IF you are using a mac there is an app called 'track master' which turns your laptop trackpad into a midi trackpad. $5. works well.

    Well, if you are trying to emulate an mpd and you want that xy pad, why not get the nanopad second hand for cheap so there you get the pad aspect of the the mpd as well. Plus its an xy pad that you know works. And if you're willing to pay more, look at the korg padkontrol. That plus a nanokontrol gives you about as much functionality as an mpd. Plus I hear the korg pads feel better.


    That's all assuming you don't already have a pad controller.

    There is also one for windows called Touchpad2midi. Works great and I believe it's free.
