I have a Faderfox LV-1 and I always use it when playing live (with a
looping context). Since I started using Möbius very often I also got
interested in picking up the other module, the one with buttons only,
but it's sold out. Says something about the popularity of these
I can't imagine what to use the joystick for with a Looperlative, but
I'm gladly using it here with beat synced LFO filtering. The Tremolo
plug-in of Live5 is one example; mapping depth to the X-axis and
tempo division to the Y-axis. I also plan to use that joystick for my
external hardware analog filter bank (AKAI MFC42) but this calls for
real-time MIDI conversion software (Logic, Max) because you can not
rearrange the MIDI control bindings of the AKAI filter. In general,
anything you use with two main parameters is cool with the joys-
stick. Oh, I almost forgot... that joystick comes in very handy with
anything done in Numerolgoy. I just wish I had three of them (LV-1)
