Ok--great. I'll let you know when I have something for you.Multiple notes mapped to a single output is also a good idea, but itwould be a much bigger undertaking to add (only because of the way thefirmware is currently implemented). So I can't offer it at thistime--sorry. But I will be considering it in the future. In the meantime, of course, you can tie together multiple outputs andachieve this sort of functionality.John
Ah, thanks.In response to the person with 12 notes that must be mapped to the gamecontroller: this could easily be achieved with two MSA units chainedtogether. The MSA has built-in MIDI Thru.I hope you'll post your results online--I'd definitely link to them fromthe blog. I'll let you know how things come along.John

What I am curious about is whether or not there are enough potential users / folks with electronic drums who also play Rock band that might be interested in this product and then how much they might be willing to pay for such product?

rworne;245458 said:Yes, but Microsoft locks out 3rd party controllers. You will need to obtain a license or possibly a dev kit to develop one. How many of these do you plan to sell? A couple hundred, tops? Do you think that is worth their while?You can also cannibalize an existing controller. Does the 360 allow a standard controller to play the drums, or do you need the drum kit?Another route to take is to see if Harmonix is interested in such a beast. Then you can sell your design and collect royalties while having someone else do all the work.
Which, while daunting to some, is significantly easier than hacking cables up and running custom software on a dedicated PC, or similar.

It would probably be better if I could put a bit more pressure on the piezo to make a better contact.For now, its good enough for me to be able to do 5 stars at medium.But, I am waiting for my R8 and look forward to play on a full drum.
