Back to the Woodshed...

You know, on the surface this looks like the simplest possible implementation of a joystick. But somehow I'm having a hell of a time wrapping my head around it. As with the Intellijel Planar before it, it seems fine if you just want to hook up the outputs to a filter cutoff and jiggle it around for a nice wobble.

But if I want to know exactly what is going to happen, it seems like mysteries abound. I'm positive it's not hard to figure out - I'm a reasonably intelligent dude. But why I can't get a simple scale/offset/stick combo to give me the values I'd expect when I set things up - I may never know.

What it really means is that I'm going to have to go into the woodshed with the Choices, the ES-8 and the computer, and start mapping the hell out of the thing until The Way It Works somehow matches The Way I Think It Works.
