this is a small announcement for a minor update for a minor piece of software, 
and at the same time a question :) So here it goes:

Kontroll is a small utility that generates midi cc messages from the mouse 
position. It is inspired by the MouseX and MouseY UGens in Supercollider. It 
simply creates an alsa sequencer port which you can then connect with your 
favourite patchbay. The mouse position is independent of window focus and is 
relative to the screen origin at the upper left.

- Another small update to kontroll. Now the controller and channel numbering 
range from 1-128 and 1-16 as commonly seen in other midi applications and 
hardware. previously it as 0-127 and 0-15 which was probably confusing to non 
computer people. 

- A minor update to this little program of mine called “Kontroll”. On shutdown 
it saves the last used parameters to a file called ~/.kontroll and on startup 
reads it again. This saves setting it up all over again on each start of the 
program. You can also save special setups via the “File” menu. 

Grab it here:


Or directly:


And here's the question: A user suggested (and i'd like this idea very much) 
that kontroll be able to make use of other input devices attached to the 
computer (additional mice, joysticks, etc). Now i would like to avoid playing 
with /dev/input directly, cause i imagine it to be a drag. So does anyone of 
you guys know a small and easy to use input-library that makes accessing 
these devices a breeze? If so, please let me know.


P.S.: Ah, LASH support is still missing. Will add it right away (or at least 
try) ;)

Palimm Palimm!
