RE: Midi Foot Controller - Which One?

I strongly suggest you to consider the Gordius,
Beside its flexibility, easy programmability and power it is also offering a feature which doesn't get consideration by many builders: silent switches. I found them essential when doing low volume performances and when recording with mics around me. It is also offering 4 analog connections to use as switches or to connect to cc pedals. Another precious feature.

I recently moved to soft step just for space reasons.

Thanks folks,

1) Eliminated Behringer, have had nothing but problems with gear from
them - all sent back during warranties…
2) Also eliminated the Soft Steps as they require USB power…
3) The Roland FC300 seems too big and too much $, has features I don't
need like amp switching and more volume pedals…
4) the Yamaha MFC10 looks cool but the screen is sooo small - -
5) Liquid Foot Jr. looks nice but higher price than I want at this

It's looking like the Rocktron MIDI Mate for price, screen size, small
footprint (will fit on my existing PedalTrain Pro) -

I'm in no rush though if other suggestions come in - - -

Gear Question:

At the start of each new song in a live performance, I need to change
the starting patch number on four devices at once (drums, midi guitar,
guitar multi-effects and vocalist harmonizer).

I have been told that there are devices that would make all these
changes for me with one button push - neato!

So, here's some of the choices, any advice?

        * RJM Music MasterMind - $329.00 - 4 simultaneous devices on
different channels

        * Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro Prog MIDI Foot Controller - $399 8
simultaneous devices

        * Rocktron MIDI Raider MIDI Footcontroller Pedal $499 - Not sure 
many devices simultaneous

        * Rocktron MIDI Mate - $219 - Six changes on six channels

        * GORDIUS Little Giant 2 - $699 - Higher $ than I want to go and 
many simultaneous?

Any I'm leaving out? (don't really want a keyboard in my rig and
without a computer in the rig, USB powered controllers are out)

Thanks folks!
