Default Question regarding toggle switch types and MMJoy2

For some time I've been thinking about making a button box and I've thought about designing my own button box using MMJoy2 or copying an existing design.

I would like toggle switches in my button box, but would it be wise to only use toggle switches that give only 'on' signals? Like 'ON-ON' or 'ON-ON-ON' for a three way switch. I've read that you can assign a button press in MMJoy2 to the 'off' action of a 'ON-OFF' toggle switch, but I wonder what the pros and cons of both solutions are.

And if someone knows some good tutorials for MMJoy2 that would be very welcome!

The advantage of using a on/off switch, and then have MMJoy2 do different output for the on and off states are that you use fewer ports on your controller.

What controller are you planning to use?
Button matrix or shift registers, for switches?

I have used the Teensy2 for my projects. Last time I used shift registers, for the input, and that was really easy to do.

I'm probably going to use an Arduino Pro Micro clone or a Teensy 2.0. Shift registers seem to be quite handy because it's a lot les soldering than a button matrix.

Would you like to show the projects you have made?
