Pitch shifting? How much more would it cost to get
an Eventide Eclipse? (I love spending other people's

Here's one more option. Combine a "dumb" midi
foot controller,(ART X-15, Ground Control, etc.) with
a Peavey PC-1600X. You can program the complex midi
commands to the PC-1600x's 16 push buttons & use the
midi foot controller to execute the function via midi
program change. Plus, you would have 16 faders to do
other stuff. You can down load the manual from the
Peavey site. I have one on order & hope to get it this

The good midi controllers would allow you to assign
midi channel on a per button/pedal/fader basis. It
would allow that button/pedal/fader to send midi cc,
note, pc, sysex, or a string of messages. Moving a
button/pedal/fader would only affect a device that is
set to the same midi channel.

With a good controller you can do either one or both.

Hey! I've only been trying to figure this stuff out
for 10+ years. And I didn't have too much expendable
gray matter to begin with!
