midi pedal board for under $150?

Post by Johnisfaster » Fri Oct 30, 2009 5:21 pm

I'm looking for a midi pedal board so I can play a little guitar and still be able to trigger things. I'm looking at the behringer fcb1010 but I'm curious about other options, especially since I tend to lean away from behringer when I can.
It was as if someone shook up a 6 foot can of blood soda and suddenly popped the top.

The FCB1010 it's the only Behringer thing that no one returns to the store. It just works... :wink:

Yeah, there really isn't anything else to look for if you're looking to spend $!00.

watch out for that little guy. Had a second hand one that I bought for $25 (should've known).. It was never reliable.. it liked to trigger 7 for most of the button presses, and it just got worse and worse.

Get the warranty on that bad boy if anything..

One thing scares me about the FCB 1010:



How are the expression pedals?

Check the above. I'm thinking of getting an FCB1010 as well, reviews so far have been worrying and support sucks. Street price is around $149 - not sure where you guys get it for $100.

Program Change only, as far as I know. Ableton Live likes midi notes and continuous controllers.

right because if it doesnt work and decides to power down in the middle of a show you have to mail it back to them and not the store. :evil:

cheers to however pointed out the line6 pedal boards on the forum. looking forward to checking them out even though they don't have as much flexibility in terms of programming.
