Anyone with experience using these for racing games or whatever? I want to get one to see if I can map music effects to it, but everything I've seen online is listed as simple on/off or doesn't specify the input type. Are they generally pressure-sensitive?

i have a really cheap one, i broke it once by using it normally (superglue fixed it)

the wheel itself is pretty terrible and flimsy, but the pedals sure are analog

glovepie + midi-yoke will probably do the trick of making it into MIDI CCs

i had to balance a webcam on top of a chair's back to record this

So do you think it's a safe bet that a cheap-azz one like this will work for this kind of thing? I still can't find any that are actually listed as analog.

mainly settings in Guitar Rig but really just VST controls in general

ideally I'll be able to emulate this insane fuzz sound:

(without dropping like $400 on a real pedal)

no idea

if you get a racing wheel, even a cheap one, the pedals are most likely analog, plus you get 2
