Re: Repeater and foot control

does the paridis controller have those little plastic buttons?
i have found the ones on the oberheim to be too finicky.
i modified a digitech fc300 (though i only get three functions this way)
and it seems a lot more positive.

i am thinking of making my own full controller for the edp using the
same buttons as the fc300, but they are kind of expensive.

i also considered making a bunch of individual footswitches, each with
one button, one resistor, and a parrallel out so they could be
this would allow me to (for example) put the record button under my heel
while playing congas. this could get out of hand, though with all the
and cables causing a big spagetti mess...

then again, maybe i should just go with a midi controller?

i am a beginner with the edp so i would love to hear some recomendations...
