Fabrizio Poce, musician and programmer has created a set of 7 Max for Live devices based on xy pad-style morphing. One of the devices in the Morph family, MorphJ is a freeware plugin that allows you to morph (control simultaneoulsy) any two parameters, in any Ableton Live device. It interfaces with a lot of different of controllers including game controllers like Joysticks or Wiimotes.
You can see MorphJ in action in the following video:

- ParamMorph: morph across any two parameters in any device in the Liveset.
