Hi Paul,
    I'm a fairly new EDP user (about a month now), and I use the EFC-7
footswitch.  A lot of guys on the list use an FCB-1010, which I know that 
can do a lot more with.
    I recommend starting with the EFC-7 just because it's so simple and 
to use right when you plug it in to the EDP.  Before I purchased the EDP I
debated which one to get as well.  I decided on the EFC-7 because I figured
that the EDP is such a deep machine that I didn't want to bog myself down 
programming a MIDI footpedal, I just wanted to work on my EDP technique.  
If I
need more control I can always add a Midi footpedal down the road.  A lot 
guys on the list use both.

Best of luck,
