I think the idea for all such constructions is to include just the 
controller into the instrument. By this you solve all problems:
- size/weight
- supply
- aditional audio cables (just needs control voltages)
But someone must find out how to take the machine apart (just wait, 
Cliff is going to send me a airFX ;-)
