RE: what is the state of things with pedals these days?

I've not had a chance to explore this properly (my manual reading head is 
used up at work all day) but I believe that it can be accomplished using 
the Oz sidecar pedal. 

The site says "MIDI IN merges and actively filters incoming MIDI data for 
optimal TimeLine synchronization and performance" and I have used it with 
a program changer in.

I am certain I read about it in an interview somewhere as one of the 
things that had been "turned on" by the Oz sidecar: I don't have any 
non-computer MIDI clock thingie to try, and my computers are in work-mode 
crunching things.  I'll try to get around to seeing how it works, but it 
will take a while.

NB: Yes, I keep mentioning this thing, but I'm not a salesperson for MV, 
have no vested interest etc: I really really love their stuff, and have 
for of their pedals. 
Bill is the nicest bloke to deal with and will make bespoke MIDI pedals if 
you ask nicely. He made me my "gracenote" sidecar for the Digitech Whammy 
DT to send really fast up+down or down+up at a tone and a semitone for 
playing bits in thumb pianos that are otherwise impossible.
