XY controller

Hi guys,

im at uni doing a project, i have used max msp beofre but im not amazing with it!

just wandering if anyone knows a way of making a XY controller either to be controlled by my mouse pad on my macbook pro or through a ipad or a tablet.

i want to make a maze where you move a cursor through it and if your going the wrong way the music in the background changes and becomes distressed and when your back on the right track it goes back to normal

any ideas guys???

thank you :)

Hey guys thanx for all the post so far :) its been a huge help ive come up with this so far

basically if you load a sample in and click the play / stop toggle box it will loop the sample, and then using your mouse pad on the grey square if you move the mouse the glitch should activate but i will need to make it more complex ofc but you will get the idea

i now have 2 problems

1. how to get a maze on max??????
2. how to make it so it glitches if it comes of track

again thank you for all the posts its helped so much :)
