for synthese exploration, i think ali momeni "active mapping space" (cf nime 05) is a good idea.
(we already talk about it).
i've got a propotype on my computer, but i need to cleanly install iem matrix in order to make it work.

anyway, the autor implementation is limitied to 2 dimentional input, but the wacom does provide lot's more :
X, Y, X velocity, Y velocity etc.

so, we need to imagine a n dimentional input parametter, "link" to m dimentional output.
this "active mapping space" implementation should be quite easy once i've got time + iem matrix.

(btw, having multiple Gem windows would also be very usefull for this implementation).

anyway, this is not the best solution, but a 1st step. any more idea would be welcom.
