Looking for a controller to control video effects real time in final cut pro?

Hi - I wanted to know if anyone is aware of a controller that would allow me to control video effects in real time in FCPX? Something in the same way that a midi controller/sampler like the M-audio Trigger Finger allows you to drop songs in the assigned pad and then sample "chop" up the audio by pressing different pads to make beats? This technique is popular for a lot of Hip Hop beatmakers.
I wanted to know if there was an equivalent for FCPX? I work on a lot of music videos and its tedious and dulls creativity by having to manually use the cut tool and drag in different clip each time, align them with audio and so forth. If there was a way to assign clips to a device that allowed me to switch back and forth between clips by using buttons and also controlling visual effects at the same time by pressing buttons, editing music videos would be a breeze, would probably turn out a lot more creatively, and would jive with the music a lot better.

I hope I explained this correctly, but I couldn't find anything else on the internet (:0) that matched this description.

Thank you & respectfully,

Tony

Doesn't really exist for FCP X unfortunately. However, Motion has support for Midi triggers and can be played for effect the way you're describing. To be honest I've not seen anyone really taking advantage of that capability much tho.
