Fuck sake, this thread made me go on a tg33 hunt and I found someone selling one with a Midisport 8x8 for a not that bad price, and this is one of the two times of the year I have some extra money floating around...
I've been needing a second 8x8 MIDI interface/standalone router pretty badly since I moved and got myself set up so every piece of MIDI gear I own is racked.
I'm afraid that resisting this is a challenge that I'm not going to be able to face, between how long I've wanted a tg33 (I've been in a perpetual state of almost buying one since like 2011) and how much I need that interface.
I have this vision of playing out with nothing but a tg33, a k1m (at least I grabbed one of those when they were under $50) and some kind of sequencer, just long, evolving sequences running while I twiddle the two joysticks like I'm piloting some kind of lush space tank.
Also, back in 2012 when I was right on the edge of getting a tg33 I got a Wavestation SR instead and It's cool (and easier to program than it's reputation would have you believe) but the lack of joystick definitely holds it back. The TG33 joystick defaults to sending and receiving the same CC numbers as the Wavestation, so It's no effort at all to hook them together and make one massive, hybrid early 90s lo-fi digital pad machine.
