Re: PK-5 as MIDI controller for loop set up (was MidiMate vs Allaccess)

I had one of those things once.

I don't think it'd be any good for controlling an EDP.

You can't program the pedals individually.  You have one octave of notes 
C to C.  You can change the octave, but that's it.

Besides, the long throw of the pedals would make rhythmic accuity 

And it's heavy, and it's big.

Forget about it and buy an FCB1010.
