Re: upgrading footswitches for EDP?

Thanks for the british audio service tip. My concern about the
switches that come with the foot pedal is that I have trouble
depressing them consistently/reliably, and I think that this would be
fixed by having switches that are more raised. As it is, I've been
trying to use my big toe sometimes, so can't wear shoes, and this is
not convenient or easy. I also didn't realize that getting 7 of those
switches would cost around $50, though. I guess the other option would
be not to baby the foot pedal and not to worry about literally
stomping on the buttons, which could be my problem too.
