this is possible with a full-featured midi pedal. Basically, you need one
that can send midi note-on messages. That includes pedals like digitech
pmc-10, rocktron AllAccess, lake-butler midigator, roland fc-200, yamaha
mfc-10. It does NOT include pedals that only send program change messages,
and are really meant just for changing patches on rack mount multi-effects.
(digital music ground control is in that category, for example.)  It seems
that many of the best midi pedals are out of production. look around for
them used.
