More buttons and knobs than an Oceanspan. [=P]
Never tried any electronic double paddle jobs.
Mechanical "Bug" was as far as I got.
I'll have to dig it out and post a picture.
What's the amp underneath?

Cheers

The Katsumi keyer was handy (lazy?) you could programme each of the memories to a coast station call. It originally had microswitches operated by the paddles but I changed them for key contacts which made sending a lot easier and quieter.
The amp is a Denon PMA-250SE, a 2x30W audio amp connected to a couple of JBL Control 1 speakers either side of my computer - it's there as do quite a bit of audio editing for community radio etc.

Cheers,
Mike
