    Default Dance Dance Revolution pad as controller?

    Is it possible to setup a Dance Dance Revolution Pad as a Midi controller that could be mapped?

    Why not use an actual midi foot switch? You know, instead of a toy....

    Definitely a toy. I was just giving example what somebody who already owns it can actually use for mapping. Also it can be modded into Mf mini style of controller or to use it in addition to other units since board is compact in size.

    Not Racist, just an observation from youtube.

    All of the asians that absolutely kill it at that game could make some serious mashup, cuepoint juggling, modifier heaven!

    Honestly it was just a fun thought, I mean come on, if you can do it why not? I always find it more fun to re-purpose something for another use that it wasn't originally intended for! Plus that four button switch looks boring if you ask me (not hatin though). I used to play DDR when I was younger, everyday after school used to hit up the arcade and line my quarters up.
