RE: McMillan 12 step anyone?

The note assignments can be configured to have any of up to five notes per 
switch.    Most of the presets use a chromatic layout but you can change 

CC and PC can not be used.

See page 15:   

Not to get between a man and his GAS, but is reprogramming the Gordius to 
send notes harder than spending $289 for a new footswitch? :-)

Echoloop also has a setting where it can be triggered by PC.
(but indeed, SUS commands are out...although possible that QuantSUS could 
work, I'm not sure)

...but they have to be the right value...so the controller still needs to 
be programmed.

"chromatic layout" ...could mean the layout isn't user configurable.

The fact that CC and PC are not assignable to switches also points
to this being intended for melodic playing of an instrument.

Indeed, all the available literature points to this.

If this is true it would work with fine Mobius
(with some programming of Mobius)
and not at all with Echoloop.
