They note that their unit can be used to transform a conventional midi
footswitch command into the quirky '2 simultaneous note-ons'  that Sonar
requires for key bindings to external controls (hmmmppph at Cakewalk for
being so old fashioned and thinking we all are playing keyboards).

This usage is discussed on the 'applications' page:

thanks to Sean for the pointer, and I'm glad I follow every random link you
folks post!   :)
