Guys, just to be safe: check the list archives regarding the MFC-10 before
you actually pick one up. I looked at that pedal briefly while I was
checking out foot controllers. If I remember correctly, one of the more
longstanding members of the list (andy butler, perhaps?) did a spec-out on
it a couple of years back. He discovered there was a problem with latency
on the pedal presses. This wouldn't normally be that much of an issue if
you're merely using it for things like turning on/off an effect
program. However, if you're using it to control your loop functions, that
could throw your timing off considerably.
The write-up was quite a while back, so perhaps a more current rev of the
MFC's operating system has fixed that since. I'd still "try before you
