help me learn and create a multi purpose controller Answered
I want to build a hardware controller that has a few switches/buttons and will communicate with the pc via usb.
The purpose for this is to control software, for me its DAW's, but could easily work with games, video editing software etc.
Step 1 materials/parts
*pressure switches (is that correct?). I want velocity sensitive switches
*rotary switch, something like a joystic with X|Y|Z movement
*what kind of electronics, circuits, etc should these connect to?
Step 2 connecting to a pc / communication
* how to program the controller, are there any SDK's for this?
I can use any pointers for learning,cost effective suggestions, inspiration from similar projects etc
Thank you in advance
