Re: midi foot controller theory

I'm currently using the IK Multimedia Stealth pedal and a POK. The Stealth pedal gives me inputs for two _expression_ pedals and the POK has 8 buttons. I previously had a Behringer FCB1010, which was a lot cheaper, but I'm happier with the current setup. For one thing, both devices are USB.

I would also look at Ted Killian's choice, the Eowave, which is also a direct usb connection and has four jacks that can each be used for switches or _expression_ pedals:

If I was buying something right now, I'd probably replace the Stealth Pedal with the Eowave and keep the POK.

Hey, Tristan —

Am looking at your Loopr app and had a couple of questions. I'll ping
you directly.

It doesn't have the complex programming stuff or that possibility to change the PROM (I'm mainly thinking about the EurekaPROM chip that enables you to control an AdrenaLinn, ..), but it's definitely my choice for all my looping apparatus (Loopr, Live, JamMan, ...). I've had mine since the mid-ninetees, and I use it everyday, in the studio or on the road. You can also power it through the MIDI cable, which can be a plus.
