    I did a Kaoss pad for the DS, using PALib and DSMidiWifi libs. The DSMidiWifi team already did a Kaoss Pad demo for their lib but I wasn't happy with it, so I did one myself.
    Here are the features so far :
    When you touch the screen, it sends 3 CC : one for the X axis, one for the Y axis and a third CC corresponding to the status of the screen : 128 when it is pressed, 0 when it's released.
    A and B can send CCs too, just like the sreen press : 128 when it's pressed, 0 when it's released

    That way you can do a nice effect with a Beat Repeat and an AutoFilter in Ableton Live, like on a real Kaoss Pad

    I'm still working on it, I added Sliders, and on the fly channel change. That way, I have 16 kaoss pads and 16*5 sliders, which is pretty good.

    To be added :
    - Pads (MPC style)
    - Keyboard
    - 8bit Synthesizer
    - Kaoss Pad-like supa-cool color effects

    Sweet, it's nice to see more MIDI apps showing up, thanks!

    I'll give you 5 extra cool points if you add another CC using pressure sensitivity (like Colors)
