"The principal seat of the soul and the place in which all our thoughts are formed." - René Descartes

The LIFE IS UNFAIR Pineal Gland is a dual expression joystick controller designed for use with any equipment that has a standard TRS style expression input. Created for musicians with desktop setups the Pineal Gland has two expression outputs, one for the X axis and one for the Y axis allowing you to precisely control the parameters of two effects or synthesizers simultaneously to unlock new sound design opportunities.

Now available with the option of the standard joystick, which will retain its position once released should you want to leave it at any particular sweet spot, and a new spring loaded centre-return joystick for an alternative feel! While it does have some limitations compared to the standard unit as it resets to the middle of the sweep for both X & Y axis when released, the springy joystick allows for some unique "momentary" expression opportunities.

This controller is passive so requires no power but must be used with TRS cables rather than standard mono guitar cables. It is not designed to work with TS style expression inputs found on some Line 6 products but has been tested with pedals from Boss, Electro-Harmonix, Triungulo Lab and Strymon. Potentiometer values are 10K ohms. Get in touch if you have any questions about compatibility!

Hand soldered and screen printed.
