Yeah - ten minutes alone with ChucK and the Catz controller has made a  
believer of me: I whipped together a little program that continually  
plucks 12 StifKarp notes, each with its own pitch and repeat rate.   
The volume of each note comes from the 6 axes (and whether the axis is  
positive or negative).  I looked like an upside-down marionette  
jumping up and down holding onto the controller strings.

Big fun.
