Nay! :-P

I have a better one. You can use an xy pad on for example your korg padKONTROl or a KAOSS PAD as a track pad and scrap the keyboard/mouse alltogether :-P

My grooveleton will also feature something similar... except I figured out a way to put it into the design without having to pay anything. Basically the main controller circuit board which I have to make anyway will act as the sensor surface. It can even be multi-touch (so you could touch with a couple fingers to control two parameters) but I decided that was a little too much.

This is definitely a great tip though I remember when I first read about that. But I already had a Kaoss pad so I never needed to get one.
