It does.  It's not programmable - it's standard and built-in.  When you
depress the footswitch, the FCB1010 sends the Note On at velocity 64, and
when you release the footswitch, it sends Note On velocity 0 (which is the
equivalent of "Note Off").  My understanding is that Note On velocity 0 is 
more common way to denote Note Off.

It does.  It will.  It can. :)

I actually use a combination of the FCB1010 (which also controls my G-Major
and my Ableton Live setup), and the EFC-7 to control 2 EDPs.  Which one I
stomp depends on what I'm trying to do.
