Correct - in theory ;-) In praxis you have to send a midi program change
that will change the active program in the EDP for a program with an
appropriate 8th/cycle setting. I tried it and it worked fine. 

One example foot pedal programming is: 
1) HalfSpeed/PC with 16 8th/cycle
2) FullSpeed/PC with  8 8th/cycle
