I think that mod will work with "nearly any" GameTrak you can get your hands
on, but I won't promise it.  All I know is that I bought a Game Trak for $10
on Amazon, made the mod, and it worked on the first try.

FWIW, the source code I just pushed to github has a bunch of GameTrak
specific code, including a "raw MIDI to event" driver, a sensible filter (so
your code doesn't get flooded with spurious updates), and a "pluck detector"
(you can pluck on the monofilament to generate an event).  Relevant files
are "game_trak_*" in
