As a bit of everything (keys, drum kit, Guitar) I can say the Rack mount
w/separate floor unit is the way to go for me. I can always throw the
small single sapce unit somewhere in the gear for live shows and if I
want to mess with the basic fuctions I stomp on the pedal.

Quite frankly, I used the EDP exclusively in a rack live and have never
used the pedal when playing keys or making noise loops, live samples,
etc. I bought a pedal solely so I could use it while playing bass and
guitar and have only messed around with this a bit in the studio. I
guess that kinda confirms it's "Guitar Centric" uses (in my case anyway)
