maybe you do explain this on the video, but is there any
particular reason why you made the controller configuration with
added "new" midi event types? for instance, is a NOTE_ON necessarily
different from a a CAOSPAD_NOTE_ON ? why two separate types for the same
midi event ?

my homepage fails? how? anyway, i'll take some time to review your code
a bit more thoroughly and most probably i'll do some code restyling
before it will get merged into trunk.

one thing i would like to have in first is something you can certainly
give away whenever you find the right time, is to explain in enough
detail what are for all those neat features shown on the caospad widget,
like what does it exactly mean those "push" or "glue" options and what
situations do they become handy?
