Do you have or plan to someday use mechanical rotary style joysticks? Want to build a standalone panel with a ton of controls? Want to make it hot-swappable?

Or maybe you'd like to add another 40 inputs / rotary joystick capabilities to your KeyWiz™ , GP-Wiz™ or other encoder installation? Want to do it without it costing a fortune?

Introducing the lightning-fast GP-Wiz40™ USB compatible controls interface with integrated Roto-X™ Technology! The GP-Wiz40 includes the most advanced rotary joystick implementation available. Costly specialized interfaces with limited capabilities are no longer required to use mechanical rotary joysticks, thanks to GroovyGameGear's exclusive Roto-X Technology.


  • Super-Fast USB compatible Gamepad functionality. Reports the status of ALL 40 inputs up to 125 times a second!!! Much faster than standard USB Keyboard technology.
  • No limitation on the number of simultaneous button presses and each input has equal priority.
  • Plug and Play HID compatible device. Tested with 98SE, Win2K/XP, Windows 7 and Linux. Will also most likely work with other systems that comply with the the HID specification.
  • Completely bus powered.
  • Common GROUND wiring method. If you see a device with more claimed outputs than it has pins on the chip, it probably uses a messy matrix approach, which can cause ghosting and requires specially paired wiring. The GP-Wiz™ requires only one input wire and a single shared common ground line to any switch, for super simple wiring and troubleshooting.
  • Large, Widely spaced "EZ-Solder" input connections.
  • Small footprint. 1.55" x 4.65" board fits just about anywhere.
  • Includes 6' USB A to B cable, and printed instruction sheet.
Roto-X Specific Features

  • Dual, Independent Rotary control support. The Roto-X™ compatible inputs operate as standard button / joystick inputs until activated by the user. This allows for toggle switches and other "normally active" controls to be used on any of the Roto-X™ capable inputs without issue.
  • User tunable pulse output. Match the Roto-X pulse timings to the application for best performance. This is a purely optional feature, as the default hardware timings have been meticulously tested with the most common applications to insure compatibility "out of the box".
  • Unique Dual-mode Selectabiliy. Standard CW / CCW and exclusive "8-Way" mode. Finally, games with "Front Line-type" controls can be played with a standard rotary joystick!
  • Compatible with any rotary switch with pin quantities in multiples of 3 + Ground. (3, 6, 9, 12, etc.)
  • Fully Buffered. Each rotary has it's own dedicated 20 action circular buffer.
  • Easy to use Software. May be used interactively (as shown below) or silently via the command line. (Click Screenshot to Download)

Note: Excellent free 3rd party software is available to allow this interface to send keypresses for use with admin and front-end applications when necessary.
