RE: FC-300 Repeater

Yes, patch mode allows you to use any midi channel per CTL or EXP pedal
(incl. the external ones). With the EXP pedals you can send up to 6
control messages on different midi channels, for example a volume
cross-fade with 2 different devices. The standard and control modes uses
the global midi channel and both the CTL and EXP pedals can only send 1
CC message. 

I have been experimenting with all modes the last couple of months to
minimize the "tap dancing". Tip: keep in mind you can control multiple
devices on the same midi channel, but you have to be sure you use
different control change messages for each device. That's how I use my
FC-300 now, because this allows you to use the CC mode and you then have
10 CTL pedals per setup in stead of 2 in patch mode :) So at the moment
I use a combination of Control mode and Standard mode and I switch from
STD to CC mode with a additional Boss footswitch.

Standard mode
* Pedal 1-8 selects the corresponding LP1 track
* CTL1=midi sync/overdub
* CTL2=erase track => my emergency button :)

Control mode
* 1-10: midi sync/overdub, stop, play, fade, swell, reverse, half speed,
low scramble, mid scramble, high scramble
* CTL1:previous track
* CTL2: next track

All modes:
* Expression pedal 1: Volume
* Expression pedal 2: Feedback
* 1 FS-6 footswitch connect to switch modes (CC-STD)

PS I just uploaded my LP1 and FC-300 setup, see
