Gear Recommendation: Foot Controller

Post by penguinpajamas » Sat May 04, 2019 9:18 pm

Hello! I mentioned this in another thread but I"m back to this forum after a hiatus! Glad to see people are still posting.

I picked up a re-amp box recently and have been having lots of enjoyment in using Ableton's effects and plugins for guitar processing instead of pedals. It's definitely saving me a lot of money :D

I've been wanting to be a little bit more expressive with these effects, and would love to pick up a MIDI foot controller that I could map to different parameters. This is the first thing that's come up form my search: ... OoQAvD_BwE

There are lots of fancy boards in this regard, and I'm not really looking for anything too special. Mostly just a board with MIDI-assignable switches, preferably both toggle and momentary capable, and one or two expression pedals. I've seen some fancy pressure-sensitive iterations of this, and I'd rather avoid anything like that, or something that depends on the direction of your pressing or anything.

Honestly, the controller I posted above is pretty much what I'm looking for, but I've heard the initial setup and configuration can be a major pain and it sound a bit overly complicated for what I want. Still considering it though!

Anybody have any recommendations or experience with the above controller?
