I think the actual pedals can.  Not sure because of the same reason you 
asserted, no good online docs.

I'm thinking the Roland PK5 and 7 may.  Online docs are the key.  I'm 
sniffing this out.

I think that may be the case.

Do you know anything about the Yamaha MPC-10?  Seems like it will send 
100 control changes.  That's a lot but I am suspicious.
I downloaded the manual at Yamaha.  It seems like it's 3 categories of 
control messages so probably 10 that are usable for the EDP.  I called, 
no response yet.
