And... it's a BEAR to get under control with a microprocessor. The Surface 
One took a good bit of programming to corral.

The new Moog (Big Briar) Voyager synth has a Tactex surface on it as well. 
On that machine, the 3 outputs of the pad are available as individual 
modulation sources which can be routed to a number of different 
destinations on the machine.

As TomR said, it's X and pressure. The Tactex pad is the first (that I 
of) to allow three axis' of control.
