Once upon a time there was a truly inexpensive, really good linear MIDI sound modifier, whose surface was also its own programming interface. It was called – li’l children please look away – the Tripp Strip™. That’s just doesn’t sound as riskay as it used to.

A number of  real companies were shown the device, in confidence, whatever _that_ means. One of them even came out with something vaguely like it. But they weren’t Tripp Strips. Face it, Girl Scouts, the Tripp Strip tastes great – the others are all less filling.
