    Are the slider posts numbered? Normally, 1 is the line voltage, 2 is the variable voltage and 3 is the return.

    You need to de-solder the joysticks and use the holes that are left in the pcb. Be careful as the joysticks normally have fixing posts that are soldered to the pcb board too. These are located in the 4 corners of the joystick and need to be de-soldered too.

    The middle of the 3 pins that the joystick is soldered to is normally the variable voltage. The outer two pins are the line voltage and return.

    Do you have a multimeter to measure the resistances on the slider? Looking at the photo I'd assume that posts 1 & 3 are at the end of the slider. No 2 would be either one of the posts nearer the middle.

    I forgot to mention that you should also de-solder the switches on the joystick too. These are the four pins directly above the joystick. In total you should be de-soldering 14 pins for each joystick.

    Your pots should be connected to the pins that are marked RX, RY, LX, LY. The middle pin on the pcb connects to number 2 on the slider and 1 & 3 go either side of 2. I don't think it really matters which way they 1 & 3 are connected to begin with, all that will happen is the slider won't turn the volume in the correct direction on your slider (off might be at the top of the fader, on at the bottom). This can sometimes be adjusted in the software or you can just turn the slider round, either that you can resolder it to the way you want.

    If you are not getting any data out of one of the joysticks have a look at the analogue switch on the pcb. This should be pushed so the analogue function can be used. That's a mistake I took a few minutes trying to correct.

    Keep trying, it's not as steep as a learning curve as you might think and the reward is a unique funky little controller. I will help where I can.

    So i solder one of the pots together and and used a multi meter but it barely reads a onnection at all. Can i use this in a bread board? like attach it to a bread board or use jumper wires?
