Re: foot controllers

Thanks, I'm not sure I need a doctor.  As to my midi-capabilities, thanks
for your assessment and diagnosis.  Perhaps we are talking about different

What you've described is the footpedal for the EDP -- except with that 
is no dialing or programming.

My experience with midi footpedals goes back to 1991 - and that involved a
very different (and much more confusing) process than you've described.
Perhaps things are easier now.  This would be good.  I should try again.

BTW - The affect in your reply demonstrates you have a strong opinion about
this.  Strong opinions are good.  They demand recognition.  Affect however
tends to distract from points being made, and cloud impartiality.  Do not 
surprised if others, with differing opinions, "rise" to your level of
emotion, too.
