Gives you new pen global controllers, in addition to !PenX, !PenY, etc.

With these sounds you can have:

!PenXTopLeft
!PenYTopLeft
!PenZTopLeft
!PenTiltXTopLeft
!PenTiltYTopLeft
!PenTiltRadiusTopLeft
!PenRadiusTopLeft
!PenButton1TopLeft
!PenButton2TopLeft

ETC: also xxxTopRight, xxxBottomLeft and xxxBottomRight.

Note that the pen buttons don't work when not touching the tablet. Also, that the pen radius' are figured based on the corresponding pen x and pen y using my own formula, which was a guess, but apparently pretty close to the way !PenRadius works.

You don't get !PenDown, although that's pretty easy to calculate..., or !PenAngle or !PenTiltAngle equivalents.

Included are:

1. a basic patch;

2. A patch which allows you to toggle between a) being able to drag through the four quadrents and change values, or b) restricting changes to whatever quadrent you are in when you put the pen down initially (ie you have to lift the pen and put it down in the other quadent to change the other quadrent).

3. A patch that uses swarm controls for each individual controller, which can be toggled on or off. [processing intensive]

4. A patch that allows you to hold down !Penbutton1 and temporarily take over pen controllers, and when the pen is released, the controllers will return to their previous position (hard to describe, but try it and see). [processing intensive]

There are simple example patches that have some sounds that are already mapped and you can try out the pen controls with.

This was all created on a system with 2 additional cards, so I don't know how well they'll work on a basic system.
