csound-jstick was created in response to the builtin joystick opcode being a bit inefficient and not ideal to use. This attempts to make it a bit easier by presenting the output in two arrays (buttons and axes). A maximum of 4 axes and 12 buttons is supported. The opcode uses evdev so only works on Linux.
- Csound development libraries
- Cmake 2.8.12 or later
Create a build directory at the top of the source tree, execute cmake .., make and optionally make install as root. If the latter is not used/possible then the resulting module can be used with the --opcode-lib flag in Csound. eg:
cd csound-jstick mkdir build && cd build cmake .. make && sudo make install
kaxes kbuttons jstick inum
Obtain joystick data at k-rate.
- kaxes : array containing axis data normalised to between 0 and 1, size is 4
- kbuttons : array containing button data normalised to between 0 and 1, size is 12
- inum : the joystick number corresponding to /dev/input
