Two-joy pad send basic midi message with Pure Data to Ableton. The system base on Pure Data and Ableton software to Pure Data send midi message to Ableton to make music.
Easy to change midi message or rhythmic pattern from Ableton. Hence, if user knows how to control Ableton software, they can change joy pad button configuration for their desirable actions.
Here is the example of controlling ableton with joypad.

How can I prepare musical idea with ableton;
before to connect joypad I prepared four chords,
Chords names are Cmaj7, D7, G7 , A7
I can manage realtime these chords with 1-2-3-4 buttons on joypad.
after the chords, I made two rhythmic loop, bass sound and fx loop,
I can change bass loop tone (transpose) with arrow button left and right,
rhythmic loops connect two fx sections. (autofilter and phasor)
autofilter can controled with joypad axix. on joypad open/close (button 9)
autofilter active to use axix to change frequance and Q point.
the other axix connect to phasor just like autofilter (with same method)
in front of joypad 5,6,7,8 buttons are trigger rhythmic loops and fx loop.
even if I change these all of sounds material
I can play different music with same method.
this is my basic idea to use joypad to make music.
