Title: RE: Controllers & Expression Pedals (PC1600[X] subthread)

>>1) They didn't think of it. 
A lot of things like this are much more apparent after the finished thing hits the market. 

2) Cost.
The cost of adding this is much more than adding a $1.50 jack.......
I'd recommend reading the Vintage Synthesizer book for case study after case study of well-intentioned musical instrument companies that went under after terminal bouts of feature creep.<<

I am on my third copy of this mighty tome, and have a collection of keyboards that would merit mention in any revised edition. I can see the point of what you're saying, but these are sold as *dedicated controller keyboards*, these aren't synths or pianos I'm talking about. the evolution mk249c has 12 assignable controller knobs along the rear edge.... and still no socket for a volume pedal. they give you a sustain pedal socket though.

like I said, baffling.
