There is a dedicated Doepfer unit. "midi to TRIGGER".
It is intended to use with all those organs and stuff, where no
dedicated keyboard controller exists that feeds let's say 8 voices or so,
but where the whole keyboard is full polyphonic.

It is a 64 note (I believe 64) to trigger (gate?) out, so each midi note
equals a trigger, which you must connect to each keyboard key.
But of course you may use that and get a killer box with 64 jacks.
Now you can trigger (gate?) 64 toys, coffee machines, atom bombs
(featuring the famous D. Jaques Chi RAK's pyro art), or MS20's.
whatever you think is the worst.

Ohh the price: I believe about 250DM aprox. 150$ US.
