If you are a joystick player, you may not be familiar with a Simultaneous Opposite Cardinal Directions Cleaner (SOCD Cleaner for short). With a joystick it is generally not possible to press both left and right or up and down at the same time. However, with controllers that use buttons for all directions, this is entirely possible. Some games handle these simultaneous inputs oddly and sometimes can be used as an unfair advantage over players with joysticks. It also makes the results unpredictable when playing different games.
To fix this issue, the inputs on a controller that have buttons for directions must be “cleaned”. This is required to gain entrance into a tournament. The Magicians SOCD Cleaner is truly in its own class as no other cleaner currently on the market has this kind of versatility. It is even compatible with Zero Delay USB boards (minor change when connecting to inputs, please refer to manual).
