Re: PMC-10

     I too use a PMC-10 and have found it to crash sometimes unexpectedly. 
     More than once I've been recording with others or performing (only 
     once) and had it dump on me. Ouch!!!! I've had it to Digitech a few 
     times and they've been very helpful but not completely successful. 
     It's been quite awhile since I've had a crash... (Fingers crossed).
     That said, I've been hoping to see more sturdy units capable of 
     assigning multiple controllers to one ex-ped or another. And the 
     ability to assign each individual controllers midi channel as well. 
     This gives you the ability to control several midi module real time 
     controllers with a single pedal. 
     Has anyone tried the new Lexicon MXP floor controller? What is it's 
     architecture like? Is it easy to program?

 I also picked up an used PMC-10 for $100, about one year ago upon Kim's
reccomendation and I whole heartedly endorse it. I do not use it with an
Echoplex, since I do not own one, but I do use it to control three separate
Jam Men. Currently I've been working with the Expression Pedal part of this
machine to control a Sherman Filterbank. The PMC-10  is deep unit capable
of much more than I'm using it for. Porbably why it did not catch on.
