From what I have read it is call the Direct system, and it is a custom made preset selector, transposer, and midi sequencer for controlling his numerous hardware synths, mostly old 90s digital synths and samplers. The symbols are his "figure coding" that he has used for years, dating back to the 70s to represent different sounds. The Direct system was based on and expanded upon the old 80s Zyklus sequencer which has become a bit of a legion of its time as an interesting real time performance midi sequencer. Very few were made and they are hard to come by, but their is a free software version on the web.
