thank you very much for the information. This is exactly what I need to know.
As I said, sometimes it is just a matter of knowing the right keywords to find what you look for.
after looking into the crystal ball I found that you can use a stock usb game controller and make this look like a MIDI controller with a piece of freeware: Rejoice + LoopBe1. Both don´t seem to put an appreciable strain on the processor. Searching around the web took me a few hours, but the actual installation was a matter of minutes - and it works!
Control Mixcraft with a gamepad - or, disassemble the gamepad, solder decent footswiches on the contacts and say hello to a low budget MIDI controller.
